My Dogs Are Terrible at Fetch

chewy.comThe always great Chewy.com sent over what I thought would be an excellent product to review with the dogs. They sent over a large West Paw Zogoflex Air Dash Frisbee Peacock Dog Toy. The quality of this Frisbee is amazing. It is very durable, made for doggies to easily catch with their mouths and bring back to their owner for another toss out into the air.

IMG_0797Yeah, well, that’s how I imagined it would work. For starters there is absolutely nothing wrong with the frisbee itself. Like I said it is very durable and quality made, but there is definitely something wrong with my dogs. Remember how I said they can easily catch this with their mouths? Well with Clark is basically bounces off his head and with Miss Lady she just watches as you throw it and then have to retrieve it yourself. I guess my dogs just are not fetchers. I’ve tried many different times, on different days, with different techniques but I swear my dogs think I have something up my sleeve whenever I toss out the Frisbee for them to catch.

What they are good at is playing tug-o-war with the Frisbee. So at least we got that going for them. It makes a pretty good toy in that regard, however I didn’t really want them chewing it up. I have a feeling that I will need to work more and more with them to get them to start actually catching the Frisbee and bring it back.

Like I said the Frisbee is of great quality, and if you know your dogs better than I know my own then it would be a great toy for them if they are into playing fetch. I had always wanted a dog that would fetch, and my previous dog Brooke was a master at it. She would fetch whatever you threw out for her to grab. She would’ve loved this toy, but Clark and Miss Lady just do not seem interested in participating in the fun.

IMG_0839Being a parent sometimes you try out goofy things with your kids… Since I couldn’t get the dogs to fetch the Frisbee for me, I tried it out on the kids and low and behold, it worked! At first Abby would run out and grab the Frisbee and bring it back for me to just throw again and she got annoyed at that. But once it became a race between her and my son Alex to see who could get it first that is when the fun began. So yes, I am the parent who plays fetch with my kids. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there. I’d like to thank Chewy for sending out this awesome Zogoflex Frisbee and as much as I wish the dogs were into it, they just weren’t. I have plenty of family with doggies, so I will try to see if one of them may like to fetch more than Clark and Miss Lady, but for now I will just use it to tire my kids out.
