You could get a big ball for him to herd. I think they're called Boomer balls. They're made of hard plastic and come in different sizes- Zelda's has about a 12 inch diameter. She likes to push it around and when it rolls away from her she runs in front of it to stop it.
Finn McCool

a good ACD is a- tired ACD!

That's a great idea! It's hands down Finn's favorite toy. Now that we have a bigger yard with less obstructions, he gets going super fast. I think Finn's was called a Best ball, which was more directed towards a pig's toy...yes a pig's toy!

Buela Grace

Are we going for- a car ride yet?

We play fetch, and Buela will fetch for nearly forever. It's great to see her top line be perfectly level with the ground and be nothing but a blur of legs.....Like Finn's motto says, a tired Heeler is a good Heeler.

i LOVE my orange street hockey ball!!!! i love to play ball with it but i also just love to keep in my mouth & chew on it!!! mommy gets my street hockey ball from canadian tire...where do you get big orange balls or any big balls that are durable??? mommy has bought us soccer balls & basket balls which haven't lasted very long as my brothers & i can puncture them fairly quick. the only ball that holds up in our house are the street hockey balls or jolly balls.

Miss Buddie likes to get all of her toys out of her basket and herd them all into a circle. Then she takes turns playing with them all.
