Wear’em Out with a HyperDog Play Pack

We love to tell you about the products that have kept our pack healthy and happy through the years, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t highlight the complete awesomeness of the HyperDog Play Pack.

Our boy Frosty, a couture assumed mix of Labrador, Greyhound, and Pit Bull, loved running and toys. When we found the HyperDog Play Pack, he instantly fell in love, and we no longer feared another rotator cuff injury.

Frosty finally met his match with the HyperDog Launcher. As he would run to retrieve a launched ball, I had another ready to roll when he returned. When he saw us pull the HyperDog Launcher from the cabinet he would run, sit, and wait in anticipation, knowing that a ball was soon to be launched for him to fetch.

Tristan loved the smaller size and shape of the tennis balls and soon started chasing them down. Not bad for a dog who deemed most toys “unworthy” of a good chase.

Grandbury loves Frisbee, but fearing he would injure a tooth, we never felt comfortable throwing one his way. The HyperDisc allowed him to catch some air again. As for replacing the band/pouch on the launcher, we didn’t find it necessary for over a year. Your use will vary, but we’ve found the HyperDogs products are long lasting and quality made.

Get your complete play pack while we’ve got’em in stock! Remember: a tired dog is a good dog. This pack is great for multiple dog households and portable for trips to the park and lake.
Purchase a complete HyperDog Play Pack that includes:

The HyperDog 2 Ball Launcher can shoot the tennis balls 220 ft., has hands free pick-up, is collapsible for easy transport and storage, and is made from a rust resistant steel. The Launcher gives you arm and hand support that will keep you in the game until your dog has had his/her fill of the fun.

The HyperDisc is a fun flying disc for your dog. Soft sided and covered with a paw print repeating pattern, you’ll always be able to locate your disc at the park. The HyperDisc is soft for safety and your dog’s mouth (no hard plastic to injure your dog’s teeth), it floats, has a gently arched shape for easy pick up, catches some great air and height, and is durable. The HyperDisc is a great tool for training.

Too Much of a Good Thing: Tennis-Ball Mouth


Yep, “tennis-ball mouth” is a real condition. Ever rubbed your hand or skin against a tennis ball? That scratchy texture acts as a very effective abrasive on teeth.

Pooches who love to carry a tennis ball around in their mouth for several hours throughout the day or like to addictively mouth and chew on tennis balls are the prime candidates for developing worn and eroded teeth. The constant holding and chewing of the balls wears the teeth down, creating tennis-ball mouth.

Most dogs love tennis balls, and you don’t have to stop them from playing with them, just make sure that they aren’t carrying them around all day or using them as their main chew toy. While the name may sound funny, the potentially painful diagnosis is humorless.
