Disadvantages: Expensive and regularly gets dribbled into your ankles
The Boomer Ball is a dog toy made by Company of Animal to entertain your dog for (hopefully) long periods of time. It is a solid ball made from a very tough plastic which is supposed to make it nigh on indestructable and can be used on land or water. Company of Animals suggest that this toy is best for dogs 'who like to conquer'. Interestingly enough, the Boomer Ball has also been used to entertain other animals in captivity such as polar bears, elephants and at one time they had a promotional video showing a brown bear playing with the toy! If your dog likes to play with balls, the Boomer Ball is a good bet.
The Boomer ball is designed to be impossible for your dog to pick up in its jaws so it's important you pick the right size ball for your dog. Four sizes are available: 4", 6", 8" and 10" so that means there is probably a ball to suit your dog whatever its size. As, naturally, your dog will keep trying to pick up the ball (which is impossible) the Boomer Ball is best for stubborn breeds such as Staffies and other bull terriers and daft breeds like Labradors. My samoyed did enjoy playing with it but give up way too easily. If your dog takes to the toys it can try for weeks to try and sink its teeth in and end up chasing it around for ages!
The Boomer Ball is available in red, blue and yellow though this is more for the owners than the dogs. They are expensive at around £6.50 for the smallest size and £14 for the largest but if your dog is the type that pops a footbal for -say - £2 within mintures then you will get your money's worth. Also, it is the case that most cases of anxiety and unwanted chewing comes from understimulated dogs so if it stops a hole being chewed in the kitchen floor, it must be worth it!
