I just bought this toy this morning & I'm already in love with this toy and this company.
It bounces! It floats! It's recyled & recylable! It may even be indestructible!
My 1-yr old beagle/bulldog mix is a heavy chewer & loves to play tug of war. This toy seems to be great for both!
She loves to chew on the squishier so-called heavy duty rubber toys, but will inevitably have chunks chewed or just plain pulled off within 5-10 min. Unfortunately she also has a tendency to swallow these pieces, so I'm constantly having to dig rubber pieces out of her mouth. She even has gouges torn in her KONG. The only chew toys I've found that will last more than a few days are the heavy chewer Nylabone products, but they're so hard, she doesn't really like them (& honestly I don't blame her.) With the Bumi, after playing fetch, letting her chew on it & some serious tug of war for about 45 minutes, this toy doesn't even have a tooth mark on it, which is definitely a first. And even though I have fairly small hands, it's really easy for me to hold on to & doesn't hurt my hands (like most tug-ropes do.)
It was a little expensive & I was skeptical at first, but after playing with it I'm a believer & will definitely be buying more Zogoflex products!
