Wag Glider is a soft, dome-shaped rubber toy made for dogs of all ages and sizes. It's stated that this toy is suitable for indoor use, and will slide across various types of flooring, so even if the weather is bad outside, it'll be able to give your dog some exercise. Plus, its soft base and rubber bumpers have been designed to protect your walls and furniture from damage as the toy bumps up against those surfaces.
The cost of Wag Glider is $19.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Wag Glider at the discounted price of only $9.99 for a total price of $36.97.

To begin with, dogs will be naturally attracted to the squeaking noise this toy makes, along with its yellow body that's decorated with a bright blue spiral design. If your dog seems apprehensive about the toy at first, you can demonstrate the squeaking noise for them by squeezing it yourself. However, once they find out that they can push the toy along with their nose or paws and make it glide and squeak, most dogs will become excited enough to play on their own. Then they'll be able to entertain themselves for up to hours at a time by pushing the toy, chasing it and pouncing on it, as it only gently bounces up against walls or furniture. Owners and other canine companions can even join in on the fun!
Although it has a slightly different shape, this toy is only about the size of a standard Frisbee that humans would play with. Therefore, most dog owners won't have difficulty carrying one from room to room or even outside the house, and most dogs won't, either. What's more, the toy's not large enough to scare the vast majority of tiny dogs, but it's also not small enough to be swallowed.
Each Wag Glider has been constructed in a domelike shape, which will help enable dogs to pick theirs up and carry it in their mouth. Additionally, each toy has a special rim around the outside that will further assist dogs with carrying their toy without dropping it. Since they'll be able to control this toy effectively, that may give them a great sense of achievement.
The Wag Glider will slide across virtually any hard surface you'd commonly find inside a home, such as hardwood, tile, laminate flooring or carpet. That means your dog will be able to play virtually anywhere as you watch or complete household chores nearby. If you want to head outside with the toy, it'll likely slide across a patch of grass or soft pavement in an effective manner. Since each toy has a soft base, it won't scratch up any sort of surface as it slides across it.
When squeezed or pushed in a certain way, this dog toy will make a squeaking noise. Most dogs will enjoy hearing this since it'll resemble the noise a small animal might make in the wild, and this will encourage them to continue pursuing the toy as their prey.
On a related note, dogs are also attracted to bright colors, so they'll likely be drawn to this yellow-and-blue toy more than they would be to a dull gray or beige one. As an added touch, each toy has a cute illustration of a paw on the top, too.
Some dog toys are designed with puppies and young canines in mind, but even senior dogs can have fun with a Wag Glider. Each dog is able to control their own game, so they can make their toy move as quickly or slowly around a particular room as they choose. Playing with a toy like this will be especially beneficial for an older dog who has become lazy or overweight, or just doesn't get outside as much as they used to.
Certain pups might prefer to play alone with their Wag Glider, but there's no reason a group of dogs can't chase one of these toys together, provided that they get along. Humans can also get in on the game by pushing the toy back and forth with their hands and watching the dog(s) run after it, but it' not necessary that owners get involved. If you're going to be super-busy and want your dog to entertain themselves for a while, you can just pass them this toy and let them get started.
The squeaker within this type of toy isn't dependent on batteries, and the gliding the toy will do must be powered by the human or dog who's pushing it. Consequently, you won't need any batteries (or electricity) to keep your Wag Glider in operation, so your dog's game will never end up being shut down due to a lack of power.
Aside from the standard version of the Wag Glider, there's a deluxe version available. The deluxe version is the same as the standard, except for the fact that a tug rope has been added to the top of each toy. This will provide your dog with a different way to carry their toy and also enable a dog and human (or even two dogs) to play tug-of-war with it.
While your dog may consistently enjoy the squeaking noise the Wag Glider makes, this noise could begin to annoy the human beings in your household over time. Unfortunately, it looks like there's no way to remove the built-in squeaker, aside from ripping open the toy and potentially destroying it in the process. That means any humans around will have to put up with the high-pitched squeaking noise, or you'll need to restrict your dog's playing time to reduce their level of irritation.
If you've got any cats in your house, along with your dog or dogs, their reaction to this toy could be either good or bad. Some cats might enjoy playing with the toy alongside a canine friend, but other cats (especially very small ones) might be absolutely petrified of the squeak toy. In the event that your cat or cats find the toy too big, loud and intimidating, you'll need to keep any dogs you have away from the cats while they play with it.
If you've been replacing plush dog toys on a frequent basis after your dog has torn them to pieces, the durability of the rubber Wag Glider may come as a relief to you. Even if your dog is hard on the toy by chewing it and pawing it on a daily basis, one of these may last for several years or more. Plus, you won't have to seek out replacement batteries on a regular basis, as you might have to when it comes to other noise-making toys.

Bought 2, they don't slide. Biggest waste of money. My dogs smelled it and walked away, of course, the fact that they won't slide on carpet or hardwood doesn't help. I don't recommend. Save your money.
