So now, read on to learn about some of the most amazing dog Frisbee toys and choose the one you think your dog will like most!
Why we love dog Frisbees
Believe it or not, researchers have a great curiosity about how dogs navigate to catch and retrieve Frisbees.
As it turns out, the techniques your dog uses to snatch a Frisbee out of thin air are just like the techniques baseball players use to catch that tiny ball in midair!
Even the Guinness Book of World Records is interested in Frisbees, and most especially in Rose, a six-year-old canine who can catch seven Frisbees at once (a skill she learned because she never wanted to give any of the Frisbees back to her owner!).
Dog Frisbees are fun. They are great for keeping your pooch fit and lively (they are great for keeping you fit and lively as well). They are affordable and travel well. Plus, dogs seem to just love them.
What more could you ask for in a dog toy?
Nerf dog Frisbee
The Nerf brand is almost as milestone-making as the Frisbee toy. Here are some great picks!
Nerf Dog Nylon FlyerThis Nerf dog Frisbee has it all – bright colors, tear-resistant nylon material, the ability to fly and float – and you can order it as a single or in a two-pack.
The TPR stands for “thermoplastic rubber,” which is a special kind of flexible yet durable allergy-safe rubber material.
Soft dog Frisbee
Puppies in particular can benefit from soft dog Frisbee toys until their gums and teeth are less sensitive, and these picks will fit the bill!
This fun and colorful soft Frisbee is great for dog Frisbee training, especially for puppies and small dogs. This toy can even double as a water dish when not in use! It comes in 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch sizes.
For many dogs, the ChuckIt! Is the best dog Frisbee. It is designed to both fly high and float.
The center is a durable nylon that is chew-resistant while the outside rim is made of flexible rubber. It comes in small or large as a single or in a two-pack.
Kong Frisbee for dogs
A dog without a Kong is like a dog without a….Frisbee. With these two great toys, you can give your dog both at once!
Kong is a classic name in dog toys, and the brand’s indestructible dog Frisbee is no exception.
This toy is made in the U.S.A. and designed to cause no harm to your dog’s mouth during games of fetch. You can buy the Kong Flyer in small or large as a single or in a two-pack.
Your puppy’s first Frisbee is a big moment in both of your lives, and you want it to be a safe and fun moment!
Kong makes the puppy flyer with teething rubber so it is soft on a puppy’s still-developing gums and teeth. The size is also designed specifically for puppies.
Glow in the dark dog Frisbee
Just like human kids, sometimes canine kids need to be tired out before they will go to bed. For that task, you need a glow in the dark dog Frisbee like these!
Just when you and your pup think you’ve seen every possible option for dog Frisbee toys, along comes the LED Light-Up Frisbee, a wonderful light-weight, night-friendly toy.
Two lithium batteries are included in the kit.
This disc dog Frisbee is literally made for the world-class canine athlete, made by dog owners who compete in canine Frisbee contests.
This toy seems to be literally chew-proof, making it perhaps the best dog Frisbee for chewers on the market.
Rubber dog Frisbee
Rubber dog Frisbee toys are often the best pick if you have a real chewer on your hands. Each of these rubber Frisbees takes a fun variation on the classic rubber Frisbee toy theme.
This popular and highly rated tough dog Frisbee comes in large and mini sizes, making it perfect for large and small dog Frisbee enthusiasts.
You can choose from three colors (aqua, granny smith green, tangerine orange) and a glow-in-the-dark option. It is made of a soft rubber material but performs like it is made of hard rubber.
This unique dog soar Frisbee disc has a squeaking center and comes in a soothing vanilla scent.
It is made of natural soft rubber that is floppy and can also be a tug-of-war toy, a chew toy or a teething toy for puppies. It comes in green or orange in a single or a two-pack.
Foam Frisbee for dogs
Foam can be a great Frisbee choice because it is very lightweight but also quite aerodynamic, as these two options will attest!
This foam dog Frisbee toy is made of an extra-durable foam material that floats and will resist chewing and puncture. It comes in a variety of colors and measures 11 inches across.
This “high performance” floating Frisbee toy comes in small and large sizes in a bright red color.
The molded foam core in the center makes this toy extra aerodynamic and durable, plus it is gentle on your dog’s mouth for retrieval.
Cloth Frisbee for dogs
Cloth Frisbee toys for dogs are gentle when mouthed or retrieved and very light and aerodynamic, which is just what you want in a Frisbee.
This Frisbee features a durable nylon cloth interior with a soft rubber rim. As a fabric dog Frisbee, it gets rave reviews. With a specific mention it is gentle on dogs’ teeth, gums and mouth.
The disc is 10 inches and comes in a green and pink color.
It comes in red, lime green or bright green.
Floating dog Frisbee
Not all canines love to swim, but if your pup can’t resist the water, you will want to seek out a floating dog Frisbee toy like one of these.
This creative floating dog Frisbee has a bone-shaped center, making it easier for your dog to retrieve and hold onto it on land or in water. It comes in bright orange.
This dog Frisbee toy is a great floater and also very rugged and resilient for chewers. It measures 8.5 inches across and comes in a bright ocean blue.
Dog Frisbee launcher
Finally, for some fun variety on the traditional dog Frisbee toy, check out these unique dog Frisbee launchers and throwers!
This popular variation on the traditional Frisbee uses three wide rings with a slingshot-type launcher. The materials are safe and non-toxic for kids and pets.
You can choose from two types of rings: the tough rings will fly 100+ feet and the extra-touch will fly 65+ feet.
In another unique twist on the classic Frisbee dog toy, the FetchBee features a narrow hollow disc with a throwing arm.
Owners say practice is the key to throwing success.
