West Paw Design Zogoflex Toy Reviewed
Some dogs chew more than others. There are dogs that would chew their way into anything in your home, but that’s only because they haven’t met their match just yet. Meet the Hurley Dog Bone, a West Paw Design Zogoflex Toy. This toy is made as an alternative chew toy that can outlast your chomper. Chewing on random materials such as wood or breakable plastic can pose a danger to your dog. Giving it a Zogoflex chew toy guarantees that you’ll never deal with damaged teeth or gums. It’s the perfect chew toy for dogs of all types, regardless of how much they actually like to chew.
Durability and Reliability
If you’re going to have a toy specifically designed for chewing, it better be extremely durable. That is exactly what this Zogoflex toy is. The Hurley Dog Bone is designed for indoor and outdoor use, wherever your dog might want to take it to chew up. It’s one of few chew toys that are actually FDA-compliant, meaning that they are declared safe for a dog’s oral use. The toy also happens to be latex-free and dishwasher-safe, which makes them even more harmless for your dog and highly convenient for you. Your dog will have endless fun with this Zogoflex chew toy, especially since their composition and style allow these toys to float on water; they even have a slight bounce to them.
This dog bone may be tough, but it’s also just as safe. The Zogoflex material is BPA-free, phthalate-free, and completely non-toxic. They’re not rigid, so these chew toys will never cause your dog any oral discomfort. The great part about these toys is that aside from being excellent chew toys, they’re also great for fetching—on land or on water. Don’t be surprised if you find your dog going back to the Zogoflex over and over again. These toys are something that your dog will find absolutely amusing. If dogs are not using these chew toys to ease any pain from teething, they’ll be using the Zogoflex for excellent entertainment and limitless amounts of play.
The Zogoflex Hurley Dog Bone comes in three different sizes and three colors. The colors are all bright and attractive—tangerine, granny smith, and aqua blue. Each size can come in the color of your choosing. The extra small Zogoflex chew toy is 4.5 inches long. It’s made for the smallest dogs such as Chihuahuas and Pomeranians. It’s basically perfect for their smaller mouths, so they can carry the toy anywhere they may want to. The next size up for the toy is the small, which comes in at 6 inches long. The small Zogoflex is designed for use by small to medium dog breeds. Beagles, Labrador Retrievers, and Fox Terriers are examples of breeds that would enjoy using this size of chew toy. Lastly, the next size is the large Zogoflex. This chew toy is 8.25 inches long, and it’s perfect for large to giant dogs such as Akitas, Dalmatians, and Leonbergers.
Cost and Value
Quality sometimes comes at a price, and in this case, the Zogoflex will cost you a bit more compared to other chew toys. While that may be the case, don’t think that this dog toy is not a good purchase. It’s still way better for your dog to be chomping on something safer that’s less likely to break apart. That being said, the Zogoflex is certainly not unbreakable, but the company does offer a free one-time replacement if the chew toy does break. That guarantee plus all the other benefits of the Zogoflex make it a smart buy. The extra small costs just under $9; the small sells for just under $12; the largest Zogoflex sells for just under $16.
