Dog chew toy that actually holds up and is Yorrick approved!

Posted January 19, 2012

Strong and cute is how we would describe both the power-chewing dog from New York called Yorrick and his chew dog toy from Montana called Hurley.  West Paw Design received this letter of thanks from Yorrick's best friend Amy:

I wanted to thank your company for creating a dog toy that is (although you don't take credit for it) truly indestructible!  

I am the owner of a 35 pound Basset/Lab mix named Yorrick who is the definition of a power chewer.  He chewed his way through the regular Kong dog toy designed for his size, then through the extreme Kong designed for his size.  He's now working his way through the Extra Large extreme Kong dog toy - as in the one designed for Rottweilers!  When I contacted Kong regarding this they simply suggested I give my dog a wheelbarrow tire to chew on.

This past January I was shopping at L.L. Bean in hopes of finding either an indestructible dog toy for Yorrick, or at least something backed with a guarantee.  I came across the Hurley dog toy and decided to give it a try.  Here we are nine months later and not only is there barely a tooth mark in the dog chew toy, but it has become Yorrick's security blanket!  He sleeps with it, carries it all over the house, waits at the door with it when we come home, and insists it goes with him when he leaves the house with us!!

As a student of veterinary technology specializing in behavior, I recommend this dog toy to clients at the animal hospital I work at as well as to dog park friends who have found themselves in the same predicament with their own power chewers.

I've attached a picture of Yorrick sleeping with his favorite dog toy.  We cannot thank you enough for really, truly understanding the meaning of "power chewer!"

Yours on two legs and four,
Amy and Yorrick
Albany, NY
