Pet Products & Services Awards 2022 Page 15 LUX 2022 Pet Products & Services There’s no canine that doesn’t love to run, jump and chase things, but when it does, it deserves a premier product. Hyperflite is the best in the business when it comes to flying discs for canines, with their toys equally at home in your backyard, at a local park, or in the World Championships. In this special edition of LUXlife, focused on the Pet Products and Services Awards 2022, we thought it the right time to take a closer look at what your pooch plays with. Hyperflite Best Throwing Disc Dog Toy Brand 2022 Apr22194 When the team at Hyperflite talk about working at the highest possible level, they know exactly what they’re talking about. Founders Peter Bloeme and Jeff Perry are both former World Champions with their dogs and Hall of Fame members, co-founder Greg Perry was a long-time Ultimate player for Chain Lightning of Atlanta and newest arrival Laura Guadarrama joined Hyperflite after competing with her Border Collie in her home country of Mexico. All four team members are passionate about one thing: making your canine chum as happy as possible. To the untrained eye, one throwing disc is much like any other, but to man’s best friend, the world has moved on. Existing flying disc manufacturers simply haven’t kept up with the possibilities presented to them. Hyperflite was created to change that. It offers a level of innovation unparalleled throughout the industry, supporting the evolving abilities of the modern canine athlete, and having fun with it too! The team are proud to state that they’ve not just changed how people see the throwing disc, they’ve reinvented it entirely. In the last twenty years, the Hyperflite team have innumerable industry firsts to their names. They have created the first patented canine competition disc design (K-10), the first punctureresistant canine competition disc (Jawz), the first cold-weather competition disc (FrostBite), the first small-dog competition disc (Pup), the first soft and flexible competition disc (SofFlite), the first glow-in-the-dark/color-changing punctureresistant disc (Jawz Fuzzion). It’s a list that doesn’t just go on, it’s ongoing. The future for Hyperflite is bright indeed, with three new disc models ready for release the moment that materials/manpower becomes available. These new models will take the form of the Alpha (9” / 25.4 cm) for very big dogs and the Macro (5” / 12.7 cm) and Nano (4” / 10.2) for super small dogs. Truly, they offer something for everyone – no dog is left behind! It’s not enough simply to offer new innovations to the market, however. A core part of the success of Hyperflite has come from the founder’s excitement about sharing what they love with other people. To this end, Hyperflite has become a name which is intrinsically linked with the growth of the sport. Both Peter Bloeme and Jeff Perry offer international clinics and seminars at no cost, with a free downloadable training guide that is currently available in seven languages. The team’s hard work has seen the Skyhoundz World Canine Disc Championship grow from an event that lasted three hours, containing 12 US competitors, in two divisions to an event that runs nearly a week-long, with over 1,000 competitive entries from all over the world. Since 2000, they have added MicroDog, Youth, and Pairs divisions, as well as numerous competitive events like Xtreme Distance to their list of events. None of this would have been possible without the sterling efforts of this talented team. When looking to the future, it pays to know what things were like in the past. From the incredible experiences of the Hyperflite team has come something very special indeed. Needless to say, their passion, not only for their product, but for the sport as a whole, is crucial to their success. It’s why Hyperflite is one of the most highly regarded names in the industry, and why you should turn to them for your flying disc needs.
