When nature gave dogs the stick, it gave them what is maybe the most dangerous “toy” anyone could have made. Most dogs love sticks, and most people are happy to throw a stick for an eager pup. The only problem is … well, pretty much everything about a stick is a problem.
We searched high and low for a fun and safe alternative to sticks that will help you exercise your dog and avoid common stick-related injuries in the process. After extensive research (and having a lot of fun testing with our pups), we finally found one that meets all of our criteria. What we love most about this “stick" is that it's the first dog fetch toy to actually look like a stick, but not injure dogs like a stick.
Its natural stick-like design, makes it an easy transition for dogs who love sticks.
And equally as important for us is that it’s also non-toxic!
There are a ton of fetch toys, balls, and other doggie doo-dads in the marketplace, but this playstick was the highest quality that we've found and we're excited to make it available to you. Preventive Vet is the only place in North America where you can buy this dog toy.
Please note: This is not meant to be an unsupervised chew toy, but it'll stand up to a bit of "post retrieval" chewing. Dogs love it!
Large size - approximately 9.5 ounces, 14" long, 1.5" diameter
Small size - approximately 4 ounces, 10" long, 1" diameter
We've just added two new great color options, Coral Red and Teal Blue. These bright colors are particularly good for making it easier to find your fetch toy in highly wooded areas, in the water, dimly lit places, or at a large park.
Here is PV pup, Clover, enjoying the large coral fetch toy:
My Frenchie, Marshall Jolie-Pitt, loves to play fetch, but he's never gone after sticks so I didn't know if he'd be interested. From the second I opened the packaging, he was pretty much obsessed. The small size was easy for me to throw, and perfect for him to retrieve. When he was finished playing, he didn't let go of his new toy, instead he layed on the dry grass and started chewing. Like almost all dogs in the bully breed family, my little man is a heavy chewer and tests the durability of everything, and this was no different. The way he was gnawing and pulling, I was shocked that nothing came off the stick right away. Eventually, he was able to work off a very tiny piece, and I knew that if I let him continue, there could have eventually been tiny pieces everywhere. So, this won't be a chew toy for him, but he gets excited every time I pick it up and immediately runs to the door. It's his new favorite toy, and I've actually really enjoyed throwing it to him— especially since it's so easy to clean.

My dog, Leander, is a really weird dude. He typically only likes two things: his stuffed animals, and sleeping under the covers until noon. He's not much of a chewer and never really gets into fetch. It took a little coaxing, but after a few minutes, I had him running in the yard like a madman. He's reeeeally into his new toy.
