Fitness balls come in a range of sizes and selecting the right ball for your dog is important. NATE and ATA specify ball sizing by dog height at the shoulders/chest. If you don’t know your dog’s height check our post on how to measure.
NATE rules provide a range of ball sizes based on heightt.
BALL SIZE ALLOWABLE RANGE
9” (22.5 cm) & under
18 cm (7 inches) up to 30cm (11.5inches) ** lighter weight balls may be used
