    We just had Charley kenneled while we were out of the country. The owner suggested we get Charley a large ball to push around the house so can get some indoor exercise. He kept pushing over the water buckets there. Anyone use a large ball? If so, what kind is bullie-proof?

    The Varsity ball is absolutely "bullie proof". It costs $40. but will never die. I am pretty sure @calibaker has one.

    Can the varsity ball be safely used indoors without ruining furniture? Thanks!

    The varsity ball is VERY hard plastic, it would destroy hardwood floors and wood furniture. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you had a cement basement or something.

    AGREED... I would only do outside or an area with no wood furniture

    I need ideas to wear him out, but at the same time keep him out of trouble… Lol He LOVES tug-of-war but honestly I can't do it for very long because it feels like my arm is going to rip off (he's a pretty strong boy now). He will fetch, but then he wants to play tug-of-war again.

    If any of you have games that you play indoors w/your bullies please share… once the hubby gets home he can wrestle w/him to wear him out. He's about to put my arms in casts at this point… Lol
    Not sure if you still need indoor game ideas but. We have several tuffy toys ( durable stuffed toys) and we tie a rope to one end and throw it across the room and we "go fishing for a bulldog." Goob will chase the toy and we will pull it towards us, sometimes trying to make it flop around. If he catches it, it turns into tug of war. When he drops it, he gets a treat. If he can't catch it, we just pull it back towards us and throw it again. It's a fun game because Goob loves to chase things and if we throw it, it won't damage anything in the house no matter what it hits.

    Sounds like a great idea!!! I'm always in need of new ideas for him, I'm home sick today and my other dog isn't feeling well. I'm tempted to rent a hotel so I can get some rest… Lol
