It’s no secret that Jaxson is a “menace” to balls! So when the big yellow dog ball arrived a few months ago – I pawposely waited to see if it would survive before telling you all about it #destructivedoodleboy

BIG YELLOW DOG BALLIt’s made out of nylon, almost 10 inches in diameter and is perfect for our outdoor activities.

When it comes to balls of this texture, Jaxson associates it as some threat to our national security and makes killing it a top priority…


Because of its size – “killing it” is a little difficult to do…


I say “difficult” and not “impossible” because –

Where there’s a Jaxy-Doodle, there’s a way…


Jaxson did manage to sink one of his eye teeth in, and she started slowly losing air #holygoldendoodle


I was able to repair it. #ballsurgeon

The puncture hole was super small and I patched it like an inner tube leak. #goodasnew

BIG YELLOW DOG BALLThis big yellow dog ball reminds me a lot of a volleyball – light and bouncy but it doesn’t hurt when it hits you.

Harley can be rather nonchalant when it comes to balls. He’ll chase after one – once maybe twice and then he’s over it.

I was pleasantly surprised to see him show extended interest in this ball…


This is NOT a sponsored product review. I just think this ball provides a great deal of fun and exercise for dogs and I’m pretty sure children too!

It’s not that expensive –

  • cost me $14.29 on Amazon

It comes deflated –

  • requires a bicycle pump (with the needle) to blow it up.

It takes several weeks to arrive –

  • I think I waited almost 4 weeks after placing the order. #dontbeinahurry

Easy to clean –

  • ours rolled around in a lot of mud, I washed it off with soap and water in the tub and let it dry.

Gives hours of exercise –

  • but with dogs I recommend you play along with them.

I have joined in the Goldendoodle games, we now play soccer together #themagainstme

Occasionally I get to kick the ball 🙂 …

Wishing you a weekend filled with love and laughter ❤️

    I love your ball surgeon skills. I do that, too! Mine immediately rip ears and eyes off any toy they’re given. I always have the needle and thread handy!

      I don’t usually repair toys but I really wanted to save the big yellow ball because it was rather new. I’m glad I did!

    Looks like great fun! My two, though, do better with balls – or toys – they can carry around all day.

      Right now toys that DON’T fit in Jaxson’s mouth have a better shot at living a longer life. LOL

    What a fun ball! I can’t usually get this crew interested in larger balls like that though. If it doesn’t fit in their mouths to be chewed on, they don’t care too much. Occasionally I’ve gotten Luke interested in some larger balls, but he likes it better if they have some kind of handle. It’s too bad, because I’d love to get him playing soccer!

      There seems to be more and more for sale online and relatively inexpensive. I’ve got my eye on another one right now.

    Katie in her younger years would have enjoyed one of these. My mom thinks they are super cool, but Bailie and I wouldn’t ever use one, so we don’t have one.

    We saw some of those gigantic balls over the weekend with a teeny tiny one too. They were all way cool but alas, I have no ball fans on the Ranch. *Sigh* How fun for your guy that he will actually play with it. 😉

      This is probably the best ball for human and Doodle fun together. We love it!

    Rodrigo and Scout would love a ball like this. I’ll have to see if I can find one in our town.

    Thanks for sharing!

      If you can afford the wait – go through Amazon. I don’t ever recall seeing one in my travels, but then regions are different. Let me know if you find one! They’re loads of fun!
