Welburn sells clean, dried gourds for crafting purposes. The website lists lots of bottle gourds suitable for canteens, however, if you only want one, try emailing them and see if they'll do that for you.
Gourds are sized by the diameter at the widest point. I ordered a box of 13 small gourds for a class and they averaged about 9" to 10" in height, were clean, dry and had no cracks and little in the way of blemishes, so the quality is nice.
