My German Shepherds Back Gums are bleeding from Catching Frisbee

by Rich Kaplan
(CT)







I just started playing frisbee with my 14 month old Shepard. She has no problem catching the frisbee. I noticed blood on the frisbee and found abraded areas on the back gums.

I bought cheap frisbees and noticed they were bitten up from catching. I replaced them, but I think the abrasions were not healed enough and she still had some visible bleeding.

I bought a Kong flyer, but it floats like a "brick". Just ordered some Jawz Discs to try. Any suggestions for beginning discs or introducing the dog to frisbees. thanks

USE a Fliip Flopper
by: Anonymous

You might want to change to the FLIPPY FLOPPER frisbee. They are made of cloth and have a rubber outer ring. The sell for about $5.50 each. Type Flippy Flopper into your search browser.

They float and are easy to clean. Don't pay more than $6.00 each. They used to sell them at Wal-Mart and they no longer carry them. Go figure.


Here are some other flying disk options:

Foamy thing

Try using a frisbee with plastic surrounded by foam. They are less dangerous is u got hit with it and they are squishy!
