She's only 1 years old but I bought her first squirrel when she was 8 ibs. She'd run around with it and stomp the edge so she would tumble with it like an armadillo rolling into a ball. I have her first long-distance catch on video and she plays catch at least 2 times a day. 6 or 8 if I'm home. She can jump 14 feet into the air on a good run-up. I buy 2 of these a year strictly because they wear out and more of them if they're on sale because they do like to get stuck places. She loves them and I love them, easy on my wrists and hands and the do FLY once you figure out how to throw them as they aren't like a normal frisbee.
I love how it flies in the air. Is easy for my toy aussie to pick up (I bought medium, probably should have bought small ). However, he grabbed it out of the toy box, and I was shocked at how he was able to break off tiny pieces of the rubber corners. I usually always supervise while he plays and am glad I do. He did manage to ingest a couple of chunks before I realized that it was coming off the toy. I hope this doesn't mean a trip to the vet for him. I would not recommend this product until the manufacturer corrects the corners (making them a hard rubber vs. a soft, thin rubber). It is too dangerous for animals, even for a game of catch or retrieving.
Our dog chews every toy. We'd gone through so many balls and then we found Chuckit brand. Their balls were so good we thought we'd give another item a try, so we bought the Flying Squirrel. He loves it! He begs to play and he doesn't seem to get bored with it. Warning-if we allowed him to lie and chew it the feet would be gone.
My dog LOVES this toy in the pool. It's tough and holds up really well to rough play, however this is our second one because she managed to sneak the last one away when I wasn't looking and chew up the edges pretty bad. Since she loves it so much I ordered another. Now I just have to be aware to put it away when the play session is done so she can't chew on it.
Not sure when I purchased but I’ve had it about 6 months and it’s withstood my #130 Malmaute. He chews it, uses it to puppy tug, and tries to rip off the tips! Still flys and has withstood the monster dog. I’m impressed with this toy
The corners aren't structurally sound, I'd give this toy a thumbs down. I was excited about it and didn't think it would hold up this poorly.
My girls just can't get enough of the squirrels. They fly nicely through the air for fetch and stand up very well to tug time. I have an aussie-pit mix and a cattle dog mix and they take tug time very seriously and are very rough about it. These are durable despite not being meant as a tug toy, which is great since the aussie-pit destroys 90% of toys
Not the only does this flying disc Sora cross the sky. It can also be used as a tug of war toy. It's strong and durable and my dog's absolutely love it
My GR won't put this toy down! The only downside is she is a chewer and has chewed a part of a corner almost off. But that hasn't stopped her fun!
I just received this flyer today. Within 3 throws my 6 month old pup chewed off the plastic vinyl corners and thread. Definitely not dog proof.
