Both dogs loved this pig, and it is made well enough to survive numerous attacks!

Did not receive order. Was to be here for Christmas and haven't seen it!
Can't play in house
from Oly, WA10/30/2012
I find this toy ridiculous. You can't play in the house unless you have a football sized living area with no breakables. It is easier to just buy a regular dog toy and throw it because that is how we use this now anyway, otherwise it would be useless. Don't waste your money unless you plan on bringing it outside everytime.
Great for big dogs!

I bought this for my Whippet Mix but she can't get her mouth around it. So she isn't that crazy about it. If you have a big dog it may work fine.
Fling it Pig
My dog absolutely loves this. He will grab it by the tail area and shake. He played with it so much, that I have to get a new one. He is a mastiff and loves to shake things.

This is a terrific toy, my dog loves to grab it by the tail and shack it. I have had two of these but can not get it to fly, I just throw it. My dog chews thru the string, should be able to buy replacement interior working parts.
How to Throw
I have a discontinued version of this toy which is a stuffed canvas ball and rather than a pig. Take the toy outdoors and put your index finger through the handle. Throw the toy underhand as if you were bowling. Let dog fetch back to you. Repeat. Because of the retractable string, you can launch the ball a long way without much effort, which is great if the human has back or shoulder problems. Also, it tends to land "dead" and doesn't roll or bounce so your dog is less likely to be injured. I wish they still had the canvas ball because the furry pig will get filthy outdoors.
My 7-yr old German Shephard absolutely loves this pig. He swings it around and plays like he's a puppy again. His eyes light up when we pick it up - he loves to chase it. Hey, pigs really can fly!!
Really doesn't fling
from Grafton, WI11/26/2011
So, it's my fault that I bought a toy that didn't make sense to me when I looked at its photo and description, hence a three star review, rather than a lower one. My husband and I both read the very brief instruction on tag showing how to "launch and release" or "pull the tail and spin", but this doesn't launch like we have come to expect of well-designed dog launching toys. You pull the tail out and the pig simply snaps back to the original position. I think you're supposed to pull the tail out, then swing it around and throw but it's awfully difficult to keep the tail/string extended unless you're swinging as fast as you can in a circle around your head. It's best just to throw the darn thing like a ball. I just don't get it. In addition after a few attempts at this, the string tore off. I made a poor spending decision on this one. What's odd is I had previously come to associate Kyjen's name with quality dog toys.
Not what I thought, but our puppy really likes it.
Best Purchase Ever
from Tasmania, Australia12/28/2011
This would have to be one of the best toys I have purchased. My dogs flick this by the tail to create their own game.
Does Not Fling
from Greenville, NC04/26/2012
Bad purchase. I pull the tail and it does not work. Waste of money.
An ok well made toy
Didn't do anything - but the tail does pull out like an extendable leash (about 20 cm). But it was a well made bargain toy for the price. Can't work out the fling it bit. Maybe that's just me.
Great Christmas Gift
from New York12/29/2012
I gave this to a friends pup for Christmas and it is her new favorite toy. She has 2 brothers and constantly keeps her eyes out that they don't steal it. The tail pulls back for a small fling motion to set pig flying. Great catch and return game, if you could get her to give it up the first time. :-)

We have 2 Lab puppies and they love playing with this. They even do tug of war. It has really held up better than toys you buy from Walmart. For the price its an excellant choice

from Kingsburg, CA02/27/2013
Sammy loves to fetch this was a perfect toy. I wish it would have lasted longer. Sammy had it tore up in a day. But if your little one loves to fetch than this is the PIG for him/her.
It doesn't 'fling' as advertised, but the dog likes to carry it around by the tab. It was very inexpensive, so a decent purchase at that.
My dogs love this!
from Seattle, WA01/05/2013
I am not sure what makes this toy so special to my dogs but they both absolutely love it.
