It's about 200mm in diameter which is a good size for my dog, although it may be a little too big for small dogs.
They come in two colours, blue and yellow, I have the yellow one, but they're both made the same.
It calls itself a 'flying disc', although at the end of the day it is what it is, a Frisbee, which is designed to fly through the air and, due to the edges that curve in and upwards, it more glides that stumbles, and, due to the curved edges, it is harmless when the dog catches it in his/her mouth.
The only difference between the good old fashioned Frisbee and this is that the Frisbee was made of a thin, yet remarkably strong plastic, where as this is made of more rubbery material that not only manages to keep it's shape but manages to repel the dogs teeth marks, unless he sits there chewing on the thing once he's caught it.
It's simple to throw, just hold the thing in the air, pull your arm backwards, throw your arm forwards and let go of the disc.... it doesn't matter where it goes really, your dog will bring it back. I tend to take my dog down to a local park where there is a remarkable safe swimming/paddling area for dogs to have fun in. I can throw this over to the other side of the stream and watch as he bounces over/swims a bit, in order to bring it back to me.
The only thing I don't like about this, although it's not really this that's the problem, is the fact that I don't like my dumb dog jumping too high for things these days, he is getting on a bit and he does tend to wobble a bit after a very long walk/run. But as I said, that's not down to the flying disc, it's more down to me not wanting my dog to break his leg, so I tend to keep this low to the ground so that he can chase and catch rather than jump up like a demented ballerina in drugs, (as that's how he jumps).
These discs cost no more than £8, which is great money really as they can last quite some time, unless, as I said, your dog decides to eat it. It can be hours of fun for your dog as he keep bringing it back to you for you to throw it away again, (aren't dogs daft really???!)
Our German Shepherd didn't have a frisbee for the main reason that I was a little concerned about buying him a regular plastic one in case he chewed it and got bits of plastic off of it and swallowed them. I was browsing through the toys at Pets At Home when I came across the Aerobie Dogobie frisbee, priced at £4.99. After a little bit of deliberation, I thought it looked like a good first frisbee to get for him so shoved it into the basket.
The Aerobie Dogobie is an 8in squidgy feeling frisbee. It is completely circular like a frisbess and has the words "Aerobie Dogobie Disc" in bright blue writing around the edge. The frisbee I purchased is a luminous yellow but it is also available in blue. I found out after purchase that the frisbees are made in this colour because they are the only colours a dog can actually see. All other colours are supposed to be seen as grey by a dog. I don't know how true this is as Ben goes mad everytime he sees something that is red but regardless that is what it says. It is made of a specialised non puncture or tear material to make it long lasting and completely durable no matter which breed of dog you have.
The frisbee is nice and soft so will not hit your dog's mouth hard or cause them any discomfort or pain when they catch it. It is nice and flexible too. The frisbee is capable of flying through the air (though not with much success from me, that is my husband's area of expertise) or it can float on water.
I found the Dogobie to be true to its word and it worked well as a frisbee both in and out of the water. Ben absolutely loves to play fetch with it and jumps up to grab it in mid air. He has had it for a few months now and the resiliant material has withstood vigorous play and it doesn't actually have a mark on it which does surprise me.
It is much better than a normal frisbee and definately alot better for your dog's mouth and teeth when your dog is playing catch with it as it doesn't bash against the mouth or teeth.
Definately worht £4.99 and highly recommended.
