The Hard Red Mitch Ball makes a great soccer ball for dogs. The size means that your dog will be happy chasing it around the yard and the nodules allow large dogs to pick it up in their mouths. How many times has your dog popped a football or a basketball? Overenthusiastic play tends to result in the ball being punctured by teeth. Replace these balls with the Hard Red Mitch Ball, which is: Super tough and long lasting. 100% safe and non toxic. Pop proof - even when punctured it springs back into shape.
