New Balls Please: Pets & Friends Top 10 Dog Balls for the Perfect Game of Fetch!

When it comes to playing fetch, the type of dog ball you use matters. Whether you’re going long distance with your Pointer or a quick flick over the garden with your Frenchie; finding the perfect ball for your dog will bring even more fun to your regular games.

Here at Pets & Friends, we know playtime is important right from a young age, so we’ve put together our top 10 dog balls to suit a range of breeds and needs to keep the fun going for as long as you need!

First up, it’s the classic! A good old fashioned tennis ball for dogs. For fields, gardens and if they’re really lucky, inside. Available in a range of colours and pack sizes, you can always chuck one in your bag for walkies!

Need a more chilled out playtime? The All for Paws Chill Out Ice Ball can be filled and frozen during the summer to help your dog stay hydrated and cool whilst they play. It’s also handy for car journeys so your dog doesn’t dehydrate as you travel.

For older dogs, or dogs who may be susceptible to breathing issues during playtime, we’d recommend the Chuckit! Breathe Right ball. The hollow ball helps your dog breathe more easily when they hold it in their mouth, keeping the air flow going even during warmer days. Best of all, the breathe right ball floats too! So, if you miss the mark and it lands on water, it won’t be lost to the depths.

Does your dog chew a ball as soon as it lands? Look no further than the super tough Kong Extreme Ball for ultimate durability. Suitable for even the most enthusiastic of chewers, the Kong quality will keep your game of fetch going for hours.

Need an extra hand with the ball? The Chuckit! Ball Launcher will help fetch go further without extra strain on your arms. Compatible with a range of Chuckit! Balls, it can be used for both long and short games of fetch to help your arms last longer and the fun last longer too!

Playing fetch during the darker hours? The Chuckit! Max Glow Balls are perfect for night-time or winter walkies, with high visibility for up to 30 minutes at a time. You can also charge them using a torch!

Does your dog need a bit more of a challenge than just playing ball? Treat filled balls like the Kong Reward Ball are the perfect solution to keep your pooch entertained. The occupier ball still has bounce, but will also randomly dispense treats as it rolls to keep your dog interested.

It’s important that your dog gets the mental and physical stimulation that comes with play right from a young age, so we’ve added the Kong Puppy Ball to our favourites list. Suitable for all breeds of puppies, the specially designed ball can help teething and chewing phases. You can even freeze them during the warmer months to keep your puppy cool as they play!

Another great option for puppies are rope balls. They are a little softer on your furnishings if your puppy isn’t ready to play outdoor fetch yet, and great for teething and chewing. The Little Rascals Rope Pack includes a rope ball and bone for different elements of a fun playtime!

Want to take fetch to the next level? Then the Nerf Dog Ultra Blaster is the one for you and your pooch! With high powered blast action, the Nerf blaster helps launch your dog’s favourite ball over 50ft into the air. This is great for long distance fetch, and getting the kids involved in playtime too!
