New Balls Please!

Welcome to our timely guide to the best balls a dog could have. 


With Wimbledon upon us it seemed obvious that we should centre our first guide on the humble ball, every dogs favourite toy and you can understand why! You can chuck them, chew them, chase them and catch them all day long. 

So here are our top picks for the best balls out there, all available from Doghouse, in-store and online.


  1. The Doghouse Tennis Ball (well we would say that, wouldn’t we!)

Available in an array of bright colours and priced at only £1.95 each from here.
