Fetching Fun With Chuckit! Flying Squirrel

in Kids, Pets


“When did they become dog owners?” you may be wondering. We aren’t. The brood of canines belong to my in-laws, but we love them like they’re our own (as long as they keep the drooling to a minimum). The crew members are Bear (the big guy), Smokey (Bear’s mini-me), Naja (the lil’ juicy one), and Lexie (the leaner one). Since the little guys and gals are a part of our family, they have become official Sophistishe product testers. Their first assignment was to put the Chuckit! Flying Squirrel to the test.


The Chuckit! Flying Squirrel is great for active dog play especially during the summer. Its features include a durable canvas design with aerodynamics, rubber feet, raised sides for easy pick up, and glow in the dark paws. It even floats in water. The Flying Squirrel is definitely a must-have for that camping trip by the lake.


Much like a frisbee, the Flying Squirrel comes to life with a simple fling in the air. On a windy day, it really lifts off. Each pooch from the pack had an opportunity to try the Flying Squirrel. The little ones were the least interested in fetching. It took quite the effort to get them excited about it, but Bear stole the show. He was all the way turned up.


As you can see, Bear is the size of a miniature horse, so I let Greg do the hands-on work. When Bear gets excited, humans may take a tumble… and I ain’t want no parts of that. In case you were wondering about #juicyjax, he was safe in Grandma’s arms getting some suga.

Jayden loves the dogs to the moon and beyond, so he was able to rough it on out.

The Chuckit! Flying Squirrel was a hit with the Cuatro Canine Crew. They are in for a fun-filled summer. The Chuckit! Flying Squirrel retails for $12.97. Get yours at Walmart.

    Great post! Interesting group of dogs, from huge down to little 🙂 Speaking of little, sometimes your son looks so big, like in the last photo, and sometimes he still looks little, like in the smooch picture 🙂

      Thanks! I thought the same thing in regards to Jaxon’s size! His such a big boy, but still tiny enough to scoop up and snuggle. 😀
