Safestix are an excellent invention, designed to help redirect your dogs’ away from harmful and potentially damaging sticks. Many dogs’ have a natural desire to pick up sticks and either carry them or try to instigate play, but the dangers associated with sticks is so great, that it is highly advisable not to encourage it.
The force in which dogs’ run towards any play item can be great and often the dog in question is not aware of anything other than the need to ‘fetch’ or ‘pounce’ or whatever takes their fancy. When sticks are included in play they can damage the mouth, they can get caught between the teeth, if chewed, small shards will be swallowed and can cause blockages or pierce the inner parts of a dogs’ mouth/throat.
