Honey and I have something in common. We both love sports. But we’re also klutzes.
Since we’re not competitive athletes it doesn’t usually matter. But it makes me reluctant to fling a heavy, stiff, plastic object in Honey’s general direction. My aim is terrible. And her catching is even worse.
What Dog Sport Is Safe for Klutzes?
When the Aerobie company offered us a soft, Dogobie flying disc to try (and one for a lucky reader), I said, “Yes. Please.”
This was our chance to imitate those cool human/dog flying disc teams. Without anyone suffering a concussion.
Honey’s New Favorite Dog Sport
Honey loved the disc from the beginning. She was excited to see it in my hand and chased it down like she would any ball, despite never having played with such a thing before.
Although Honey catches food tossed from the cutting board when I’m cooking with no problems, she wasn’t as good at catching the disc. Honey jumped in the air, but her timing was off and she usually picked up the disc off the ground. At times, she found it hard to grasp the disc in her teeth when it was lying flat. It’s the only negative I found for the Dogobie flying disc.
But trouble picking up the disc made it no less fun for Honey and she continued to bring it back to me over and over so I could toss it again.
After a while, my throwing improved and so did Honey’s catching. She did snag the disc in the air a few times. Unfortunately, I can’t toss a disc and snap a picture at the same time.
Honey also enjoyed prancing around with the disc in her mouth. Goldens are famous for liking to carry soft objects—socks, stuffies, dirty underwear. And Honey is all golden. She loved carrying the disc around.
Dogobie Flying Disc – Even Fun for Klutzes
I’m thrilled with the Dogobie flying disc. It’s sturdy enough to stand up to a spontaneous session of tug while soft enough to throw at your dog without worrying she’ll get a black eye.
