    Default Going Mad on the Flying Fox

    The big boy went completely nuts trying to get his teeth on the red seat of this flying fox today.

    It isn't actually a good idea for him to jump so much (and he was breathing really hard and I had to start driving away before he would come!)

    But I think he had a great time!!

    You must not have flying foxes in the States? It is a cable with an attachment to roll down the cable on (for people) - an adventure activity. The string part at the bottom is for the flying fox to be hauled up to the top, and the red seat is to sit on as it glides down. Most are for kids but there are some big ones for adults. From a bulldogs perspective it is something as per pics which bounces around. I have seen equivalents expressly made for dogs (without the cable part) - but I don't think the jumping up and grabbing is recommended for most bulldogs; our boy was certainly completely obsessed with it though!

    A video of you riding the flying fox would help us understand what it is and how it works.

    Here is a picture off the net showing a children's playground flying fox for those who don't know what it is. I think it may be called a zip line in the States.
