Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Zoom Flyer

Durability Rating: [Rating:5/5]

This is another great toy from Planet Dog. For toughness and durability, you really can’t go wrong with Planet Dog toys, and this toy is no exception. We have this toy for the pool, and it is definitely a favorite with the dogs, both in and out of the water. Yes, it floats, yes, it is soft on the mouth and yes, it is durable!

As a pool toy, the Orbee, challenges dogs to think, because depending on how it lands in the water, the disc might be slightly under the water. The dogs tend to push it underwater as they enthusiastically try to grab it up… then the action of their legs treading water keeps it out of reach.

We have taught the dogs to “leave it” and swim away from it to allow the toy time to float back to the surface. Then we reward the dogs with an “okay go get it” so they can try again to grab it.

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Zoom Flyer - Long lasting and super tough!This toy is so enticing, it was the one that got Cassie to first dive in off the diving board. It’s also great for competitive dogs who can both grab onto the Orbee and swim together. Once out of the pool, it makes a great tug toy.

We’ve had this toy for at least two years. It is finally showing a bit of stress where the blue, stiffer center is coming apart from the outer ring… however, so long as it floats and doesn’t completely come apart, we’re keeping it in the arsenal.

Definitely recommended and worth the money. We’re thinking Moxie might be a frisbee dog, so we’ll also use this once the pool is closed to teach her to play frisbee.

Rubber Chicken by Zanies

Durability Rating: [Rating:5/5]
The Rubber Chicken by Zanies is a surprisingly durable toy that is truly a bargain dog toy that has lasted months.  Made of 100% Natural Latex Rubber, the toy is a 24 inch wiggly, shakeable, throwable toy that has gotten a lot of play.

Cassie likes to shake it so much, she ends up flogging herself!  Moxie chooses this toy quite often to initiate tug games with Cassie, and the rubber is pretty stretchy with a lot of give to it.  It is also a great toy for playing catch because it is floppy and unpredictable.

The only downside to this toy (as with all rubber toys) is it tends to get slimy after a few minutes.  Cassie and Moxie don’t mind of course, but I do!

This rubber chicken by Zanies is a great bargain!

After over 8 months of hard play, this toy is still kicking.  Granted it has a few punctures in the rubber, but overall, I can’t complain.  And for the price, we sure have gotten our money’s work.  Well done, Zanies!
