Best Dog Flying Discs in 2020



CHUCKIT! FLYING SQUIRREL Review:


I've gone through 5 of these so far - all sizes - with two dogs. I would have rated 5 stars if they were more durable. My dog looooves the Chuckit Squirrels - he's got a sizable "toy box" of tugs, balls, Frisbees, bite sleeves, and ropes to choose from, but 95% of the time he'll pull the squirrel out of the pile to play. I think he likes showing off how athletic he is to all the chicks in the neighborhood ;)

For those who say "these don't fly": While you won't get the range that you can achieve with a Frisbee, they do fly, and fly pretty well. Like any "flying" toy, they take some practice to learn how to throw them and get the most out of them - and depending on technique - they are pretty controllable. They also tend to fly poorly when they're new, dry, and stiff, but much better when they're loose and slimy and a bit more broken in. It's a good idea when you first pick them up to flex and twist them around to loosen them up - and wash them off with a hose when you're done. I find they work better if you let them dry lying on their "back" on a flat surface.

You can expect 3-6 months of twice a day play before needing to replace them depending on where you're playing (concrete and asphalt will chew through the edges) and expect a shorter replacement interval if your dog is a tugger or chewer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It's a great toy - just don't let your dog have it unattended for more than a few moments. My Malinois can saw through one of these in about 30 seconds. Just this morning, we were playing and a neighbor stopped by to chat - I turned my back on my dog for about a minute and when I turned back, there were two Chuckit Squirrel halves. That'll teach ME to talk to people while in the middle of playing. This is the second one he's burned through - so this one was *my* fault - SO - just keep in mind that these are NOT chew toys ... unless you enjoy sending regular payments to the Chuckit company ;)



Chuckit! Paraflight Dog Toy Review:


 (see Update below) I bought this disk and the Cosmic Dog Disk on Amazon at the same time. I received them today and went outside with my Australian Shepherd and threw them around for a good 45 minutes. I have found out to NEVER only have 1 frisbee when throwing. If so, you will be playing tug-o-war with it and the disk won't last near as long. When your dog returns one, throw the second.
Both of the disks are the same structure, i.e., a hard rubber outer edge with a soft inner circle. Here's my take on them both:
Cosmic Dog Disk:
Pros - Rubber outer circle is very durable. My dog wanted to shake this one like a maniac when it was in her mouth. The inner circle is thin nylon. With all the shaking and chomping, it doesn't show any signs of wear yet. Only time will tell. Once it's thrown, it stays in the air the longest of any of the 8 different dog frisbees I have bought due to its light weight. It also stays parallel to the ground very well with normal frisbee throwing technique.
Cons - It's hard to throw very far because it's has a flimsy feel to it and it bends under the pressure of a high-torqued throw. You have to adjust your throw to a slower accelerated throw to keep it circular.
ChuckIt Paraflight:
Pros - This is really solid feeling. The outer circle is more solid than the Cosmic Dog Disk and the inner circle seems to be a canvas like material. It holds up well under the highest torqued throws. After chomping on it for 45 minutes, it barely looks used.
Cons - As you can see in the video, all of my throws end up curving left very abruptly about half-way through its flight. My dog can still catch it, but it gets annoying after a while.
My dog didn't seem to prefer either disk more than the other and she's VERY picky. Sometimes, if she doesn't like a frisbee, she simply won't chase it at all. In spite of the ChuckIt Paraflight holding up better and feeling more solid, I can't seem to adjust my throw to accommodate the crazy left curve. I prefer the Cosmic Dog Disk, even though I have to throw a little more slowly.

UPDATE: After a week of throwing, the ChuckIt Paraflight is still in prime condition, while the Cosmic Dog Disk has a tear through it's outer rubber edge. I have upgraded this to 4 stars for it's toughness, but it still curves sharply to the left compared to all of the other frisbees I throw with my dog.



Hyper Pet Flippy Flopper Dog Frisbee Interactive Dog Toys [Flying Disc Dog Fetch Toy - Floats in Water & Safe on Teeth] (Pack of 2, Colors Will Vary) Review:


Our dog plays a lot of frisbee and we've worn out A LOT. Probably about 1 per month and he's about 5 years old now. We've tried about every variation there is, both hard and soft type. These are the best we've found so far. These fly true and don't wear out as quickly as others. Its the only soft disc that works and doesn't wear fast. Some of the others we've tried won't last a day or won't fly. Cheap hard plastic ones won't fly well and/or wear out very fast. A good quality hard plastic one will last as well as this soft one but they also fly faster and farther. Our dog WILL catch it. Problem is he tore the ACL in both rear legs about 2 years ago playing frisbee. He had surgery and has recovered from his injuries. He still loves to play and we don't want to deprive him of it. But, I prefer these because they last well, fly well, and fly a little slower so he doesn't run quite as hard.



Chuckit! Zipflight Dog Toy Review:


 I give the Zipflight 5 stars, NOT because it's the best flying disc for dogs, it's definitely not. But because it's my dog's favorite fetch toy anyways! My golden retriever loves to catch frisbees, but if I take out the zipflight first, she won't have anything to do with the other discs. So when I take her to the park I bring 3 discs, a Chomper Flex (great flyer), a Flippy Flopper (soft and easy), and the Zipflight. I keep the Zipflight hidden til ready, throwing the other two discs so she gets some catching practice in. Then out comes the Zipflight, I hold it vertical, between my thumb and index finger and simply fling/flick it forward ... it rolls and rolls and rolls, fantastically! It's easy to get 50+ yards rolling distance with it, and because it rolls fast, I think my dog considers it a challenge to grab it before it stops and flops over. She will chase that thing until her tongue hangs out the side of her mouth, and then some. And because of its weight and rolling capability the Zipflight is WAY easier on the arm than throwing a tennis ball, plus my golden likes it more. Gives her a great workout. Highly recommend for owners of high energy breeds, like retrievers,shepherds... gives them a way better workout than just taking for walks. One last thing, to all those who rated this poorly because "dog chewed it up within a day" or some such nonsense, NOWHERE in the description does it say this is a chew toy! My dog is using the same one I bought for her 4 years ago, using it every day, and it still hasn't fallen apart. And guess what else? My shoes haven't fallen apart either? That's because you're supposed to train your dog what to chew, and what NOT to chew.



KONG - Flyer Review:


Should have purchased long ago. For the past 4 years I've been buying the "Floppy Disc "USA", Soft Flying Disc Toy for Dogs." I play frisbee with my dog twice a day (he's got me trained to go out in the morning and at 4pm.) The fabric type differs dramatically from this Kong disc. They are made of canvas-like fabric with a rubber tube in the outer rim of the disc. I knew they wouldn't last forever, even though I don't allow my dog to chew on them. I had to buy two new ones every six months or so. That's because the material skids on the ground, or because the dog chomps on them when he grabs out of the air or off the ground. Because they are lighter, they are also less stable and don't fly as far; they tend to dip to the left toward the end of the flight. They get wet and nearly solid when it's freezing (as it is for months here in MI). In contrast, the Kong is better in all regards. It's nearly indestructible, even if you let your dog chew on it, but I'm sure there are some dogs could chew it apart. I like the Kong much better because it lasts far longer than the fabric one's I've been using. I'll update this, but I think it'll last years. (We have another Kong product, a pull toy, that's sill like new after 4 years. The Kong disc is soft enough, though not quite as soft as fabric. But that difference is negligible. Regular plastic discs are way to hard and they last about 5-minutes, especially in the cold. ,Worst of all, the regular discs are hard and hurt dogs' mouths when the catch them. Some have reported chipped teeth. My dog got a bloody lip. That's when I started buying the fabric discs. But the Kong also flies much better than the fabric dics. I don't have to throw as hard to go the same distance. It's a great deal for the money. Which I had purchased this from the start. Would have saved $40-50.

Jalousie Puppy Chew Dog Rope Toy Assortment for Medium Large Breeds Review:


My pupper, Dobby, loved them! It's mostly rope so if you have a chewer on your hands they may not last long unless you monitor them. I negotiated with Dobby and we agreed that he can't have more than 3 at one time. We're both very happy with this agreement but he also suggested that I circulate the toys every now and again. Unfortunately, I had to express to him that this was not possible due to him destroying 1 rope toy, a ball and a squeaky bone within a week. In our second session of talks we concluded that the first conclusion was the best.

We really like the toys but yes, they probably won't last long.



Wisedom Dog Treat Ball IQ Interactive Food Dispensing Puzzle Toys for Dogs Chasing Chewing Playing Review:


I love this toy, but more importantly--my dogs are obsessed! I put in mini treats that I get from my local pet store and they tend to come out either when throwing the ball or when one of my pups is knawing and rolling it around which keeps their constant attention.

So far this has held up to three chew happy dogs, a dachshund, a german shepherd, and a black lab and they often will argue and hog the toy to themselves until another one snatches it away for a little while. I think I will need another

Update October 22, 2019
- It’s been a while, but the toy is still holding up really well to my three fluffy destructive monsters and is in good, albeit usually drooled on, condition. I did end up buying more of this one and a few other variations of treat ball because this one was such a hit. This one in particular is still my favorite because it easiest to clean. (They do get slimy on the inside)

This treat ball helps TREMENDOUSLY with some of my dogs behavioral issues because it gives them something to focus on in times when they would usually be anxious. Thundering? Everybody gets a treat ball. Unknown people working in our yard or around the house? Everybody gets a treat ball. I’ve used them for calming my dogs when I introduce them to new pups, traveling, fireworks, you name it. Any situation where one of my dogs would either be pacing the house whining, shaking and hiding, or barking excessively, I counteract with this ball and some good treats and it has worked fantastically.

Dog Ultra Ring for Ring Chaser Review:


Durability, Sturdiness rate @ 4, why so I could grab your attention! This is a dog toy which is as durable as you want it to be i.e. we only allow playing with this toy when playing fetch, if we just gave it to our dog she would distroy it. (Chuckit brand is my go to for most toys, due to their quality and durability).
For the most part I blame pet parents for the distruction of dog toys, the Chuckit ring is less durable than the regular Chuckit balls however the ring will go extremely long distances when thrown correctly. My husband use to be a great baseball pitcher until he injured his shoulder and can throw the ring over 100 yards or more and the ring continues to roll perfectly, our dog runs quickly to retrieve it, but slowly brings it back! 5-10 throws and she is done!
The first one we got she bit a small piece off but it is still usable, we got another to have because they are great!
Interactive toy use!!!
Dog approved owner satisfied!!
Thanks!
