It's the glue, and it's only when it combines with their saliva. How wet is it when she returns it?Woody Taylor said:Okay, so I had never really got Annie on tennis balls until recently...two-ball is a new favorite of hers. She's not allowed to chew on them, but I can't figure out...is the problem with tennis balls the glue used in them, or in the felt itself? Or both?
And is fetch okay as long as she's not chewing on it?
I made the mistake of trying to save money on toys off the bat...needless to say, Annie went through 12 cheapo Target tennis balls in...well...12 throws. ;-) Chopped the damn things nearly in half just mouthing them on the runs back to me. I just got some industrial-strength balls from the pet store that supposedly have less abrasive felt, but I'm still wondering about the impact on her teeth.
