Meet Alfred a 2 year old golden retriever mix. Alfred and his mom Celine discovered the Zisc and it was an instant success. Celine likes the Zisc® because it is lightweight and flexible. It can be thrown 50 feet easily and flies straight. Alfred likes the texture. It is gentle on his teeth and fun to carry around folded in half.

Most importantly Alfred staves off the effects of epilepsy and medication by staying active chasing his new favorite toy. Surprisingly, Alfred continues to play fetch 2 hours a day, even with all the medication! Alfred also has a Hurley® that he loves to play with too!

The only recommendation for improvement is the amount of drool collected on the Zisc after hours of play. While it isn't a big deal in the winter, Celine says that she doesn't like getting the saliva on her hands.

Celine is happy to help support a company that has such a great philosophy. From our guarantee to the eco-friendly product, it is easy to see that West Paw Design cares!

You two keep playing hard and we will look into the drool guard on our next model!
