The egg ball enables a wide range of exercises in a safe and effective way. It improves balance and coordination, posture, flexibility as well as muscular tone and
strength. It has a greater balance challenge due to its' uneven shape and will shift in multi directions for advanced proprioception and body awareness.
Its professional-grade heavy-duty PVC material is formulated to be used with dogs. It provides superior gripping and resists damage caused by dog nails. When it is used in a core conditioning program, it can improve balance and coordination as well as stabilize weak areas.
It easily inflates with an air pump (sold separately). You can also adjust the balance challenge by under-inflating so the ball is not as firm.
The egg is inflated by measuring to a desired height, not by air pressure. The size printed on each egg is the maximum inflation height the ball is designed to inflate up to, but you can always use the ball less inflated, so that it is easier for your dog to balance on. It can also be inflated with an air pump or your own air compressor that has a cone-shaped attachment. If you want to reach the maximum height but feel like the ball cannot take more air, let it sit overnight partially inflated with the plug in the ball. The material will soften and expand a little and be easier to fill. The next day continue to inflate to a desired size. When you have reached the desired height, make sure you press the plug all of the way in, until the head of the plug is flush with the ball's surface. This will ensure a good seal.
At maximum height, the egg ball feels tight and is more challenging for your dog.
