One of the most iconic and popular toys for dogs would have to be the ball. In tribute to the simplicity and enjoyment that this toy brings, we at Doggy Eco decided to develop and introduce a 100% sustainable option. In researching to develop this toy we considered several materials but a consideration that we had to make was the impact of these materials on dogs teeth when catching and using these toys. Our research identified that wool had properties such as a high rate of absorbency, was a renewable resource and if ingested is not toxic to dogs. Wool is also non abrasive on teeth so catching or biting a woollen ball will not damage dogs’ teeth. We identified a process known as felting which produced the properties necessary to create a compounded solid ball of wool. Our Eco balls have been used at the beach, park, and backyard play. What we found while testing this product is that the compounded felted wool will absorb water, making the ball heavier allowing it to be thrown further than when it is dry. Our eco balls have been used using large, medium and small dogs from which we identified an added benefit that the furry nature of the outside of the ball allows it to be carried and caught by dogs of all sizes.
VERSATILE – Can be used for light play or active throwing and chasing. Eco Balls are water absorbent allowing the wet ball to be heavier and throw further.
