This is paws-down Emrys' favorite toy. Bergamot has not gotten a turn yet. If the racquetball is out Emrys will ignore all other toys.

Beast Review:

The bouncy-ness (bounceosity) drives Emrys wild. The ricochet effect of this ball keeps her guessing. She will not allow Bergamot to touch these balls - even though he looks very interested. These are a bit smaller than a tennis ball. Emrys picks them up and can even catch them in midair. Bergamot has trouble figuring out the right amount of mouth-pressure to use pick them up without sending them shooting out of his mouth! He really hasn't had much time to practice before Emrys crashes into him & snatches it away!

These balls are smaller than a tennis ball. These balls are not appropriate for larger dogs. Balls and other toys that are too small can easily be swallowed or become lodged in your dog’s mouth or throat.

Boston Proof?

We might be on to something here!
