STOP READING REVIEWS AND BUY THIS THING!!!!!
Reviewed in the United States on March 19, 2016
7 months ago I searched in desperation for a frisbee for our 2 year old lab/shepherd mix rescue dog. He was obsessed with fetching a ball and then we tried a frisbee and he could do it! He became newly obsessed, which was better than him barking and freaking out at random things and he became WAY less anxious and crazy. We were buying a new hard one every 2 days from our local toy and hardware stores and one strong bite at the back of his mouth on any of them would either snap them in half or he'd end up with a bloody mouth from him biting his own tongue when he caught it. It was HORRIBLE. I bought a fancy one at a sporting goods store. Lasted 20 seconds. The last straw was when he actually bit a slice into a frisbee and then his tongue got very stuck in the slice. He was screeching and I had to turn into an ER nurse in the middle of our front yard. Don't think about it too long or you'll get woozy.
I had no idea a frisbee like this soft Zogoflex even existed until I googled "best dog frisbee" or something like that out of desperation. There were a few options out there, but this is the one I went with because a review mentioned it was soft on the dog's mouth. 7 months later after nearly daily use, the thing still looks like new. How it doesn't get punctured from his teeth, I don't know. How it's soft enough to fly like a bullet but not cut his mouth or tongue when he yanks it out of the air, I don't know.
It has made it through the winter. It doesn't freeze, it doesn't crack. It's easy to spot when we play fetch in the snow because it is bright orange! This this has logged over 500 hours of fetch and digging in the 7 months we've had it.
When we're not playing fetch, he literally drags it to a dirt pile and digs at it, chucking dirt and rocks 20 feet in all directions while happily grunting at it, flipping it over and over again. And, it still looks immaculate. I've just taken a picture of it during yesterday's fetch session - sorry it's got fresh dirt and slobber on it, but there's no scratches, no tears, no discoloration. (And we used to leave it outside for weeks at a time sometimes!). We've learned he's much less anxious when he can bring it inside. He doesn't get all wild & crazy with it, he uses it as a pillow or a cuddle thing. Kinda weird, but he's not eating the furniture anymore, so money well spent.
If you know the human being that invented this thing, please give them a hug and a high-five. Thank you.
