Planet Dog's Award-Winning Orbee-Tuff Takes Flight in New ZOOM Flyer

Portland, Maine (June 2006) – The new Orbee-Tuff® ZOOM Flyer™ was inspired by high-flying, four-legged Frisbee® fans. Since the Frisbee has been around for over 350 dog years, Planet Dog thought it was time for a change. By using the latest technology at their fingertips and the most dynamic product-testing fetchers on their staff, Planet Dog has taken its award-winning Orbee-Tuff® compound to new heights with the new, ultimate flying disc.

Planet Dog's technically-advanced, dual-density construction allows for a stiff center core for smooth sailing, surrounded by a softer outer ring that is gentle on canine teeth and gums, making ZOOM hard where you need it, but soft where you want it.

Lightweight and flexible, ZOOM remains soft, even at freezing temperatures and Planet Dog encourages chilling it in the freezer to make an extra cool toy during hot months. It won't chip a dog's teeth and its design makes it easy to throw and easy for dogs to catch and pick up. And, unlike many other flying discs available to dogs, ZOOM is infused with mint for a perfectly refreshing fetch. Planet Dog even made one that glows for nighttime fun. This glow-in-the-dark version is perfect for late night romps.

ZOOM is available in one size (9.5" x 9.5" x 1.5") perfect for Border Collies, Labs and all other dogs that love to jump. It comes in two color combinations (blue outer with orange center and a glow outer with blue center). The suggested retail price is $12.95.

Although this amazing new toy is made from Planet Dog's award-winning Orbee-Tuff material which makes it very durable, it is intended for tossing (in land or on water), not chewing. Like all toys made with the Orbee-Tuff compound, ZOOM is non-toxic, buoyant and 100% guaranteed! It is even recyclable. Planet Dog recycles 100% first quality Orbee-Tuff material that would otherwise be discarded to make the Orbee RecycleBALL® and RecycleBONE®. Zoom is made in the USA.

It is socially responsible, too. A percentage of every Planet Dog purchase goes directly to the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) to promote and celebrate programs in which dogs serve and support their best friends. For more information, please visit
