Ultimate praise for the Fling Thing!

Posted June 05, 2009

 

The Whole Dog Journal gives it two thumbs up!

In October 2002, Pat Miller of The Whole Dog Journal tested dog toys of all varieties and recommended a select few to share with readers. Under the heading of Flying Discs, West Paw Design received a healthy nod for its EnduroPlay products. Miller writes,
“The Fling Thing is a completely different sort of flying disc, and a fairly new entry to this market. It’s an eight-inch triangle-shaped toy that flies well, made of a uniquely soft, lightweight, almost squishy but durable rubberized material. As the warning on the package says, ‘This toy is not a chew toy and should not be left for dogs to play with unattended’ – yet it’s a surprisingly tough toy. Aggressive chewers can sink their teeth into the toy, but can’t seem to puncture or tear it – not while engaged in play, anyway. (If they were left alone with it, that might be a different story.) The maker claims that dogs’ teeth actually get cleaned as they bite the toy. West Paw Design also makes a ball (the BowWowzer Ball) out of the same material.”
