Great for dog agility training or strength and conditioning.

The Peanut shape targets front-to-back or side-to-side movements and many dog exercise techniques.

Peanut shape provides more stability than a standard exercise ball. Versatile for exercising, stretching and rehabilitation use. Suitable for all levels of fitness and ability.

These can be used for core conditioning of sporting and working dogs as well as for animal rehabilitation and therapy.

The unique shape of the peanut limits its movement to front/back or side/side, important for dogs new to this type of training.  Great equipment for introducing your senior, overweight or rehabilitating pet to core conditioning, strength and fitness.

It enables proprioceptive rehabilitation of the hind limbs. Its unique shape limits its movement to front-back or side-side. It is specifically designed to increase your dog's core muscle strength, flexibility and cardio. You can adjust the balance challenge by under-inflating so the ball is not as firm.

The peanut ball is made of highly resistant PVC material, formulated to be used with dogs. It provides superior gripping and resists damage caused by dog nails.

It is ideal to be used with exercise balls  to ensure your dog's correct position.  It is ideal to train dog's proprioception together with exercise balls. 

Thanks to the BRQ system, in case of puncture the ball deflates slowly. The peanut ball comes in a variety of sizes and it is easy to wash.

Benefits of Peanut Balls:

  • Core strengthening.
  • Enables low impact conditioning of the thoracic/pelvic limbs.
  • Provides platform for patient support to enable further therapies to take place such as passive range of motion.


How do you train a dog to balance a ball?


Encourage the dog to stand still and work on balance. Using your hands, provide only as much contact with the dog as he needs to help him feel comfortable and to keep him from falling off the ball. The more he stands on his own without support or leaning on you, the harder he is working. you can work you dog into sit stand and down positions on the peanut. As well as usuing under the body  and rocking backwards and forwards and walking with the ball under the body.


How to pick the right size ball/ peanut for your dog

For Core Conditioning:

If you plan to use your balance products for core conditioning measure the length of your dog when it is in a neutral standing position from the front legs to the back legs. Your dog should stand on the balance products without a hunched (or roached) back. You can always use a larger balance product for smaller dogs, but not a small product for large dogs. Large dogs may need two or more items to ensure proper form. If you have more than one dog, choose a size that fits your largest dog.

For Natural Stances

Use the below Peanut/ Ball*Approx. Sizes

Up to 20” length 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 cm

Up to 24” length 50, 60, 70, 80 cm

Up to 30” length 60, 70, 80 cm

Up to 41” length 70, 80 cm

Up to 46” length 80 cm


For Weight Bearing Activities:

Weight bearing activities are activities where the dog is partially standing on the ground and partially on the ball. Choose a ball that is slightly under your dog’s withers (or highest part of the shoulders where the neck meets the back). If you need a ball smaller than the 40 cm, consider purchasing our Donut or decrease the amount of air in the 40 cm. Weight-bearing activities are a great way to introduce dogs to balance activities.


Dog Shoulder Height Use

Use the below Peanut/ Ball*Approx. Sizes

16”-19” (40-49 cm) 40 cm

20”-23” (50-58 cm) 50 cm

24”-27” (59-68 cm) 60 cm

28”-31” (69-78 cm) 70 cm

    My 2 Border Collie's love it, no problem with nails. Love that I can incorporate core exercises into their regular training, especially when it's too hot or wet to train outside.
