Indestructible dog toy? Almost, if Roma is the dog

Posted March 03, 2006

Hurley is Roma's toy of choice!

Cyndy and Michael Gaither live in sunny Watsonville California. Their 2.5 year old Yellow Lab, Roma, spends her day playing with her favorite durable toys, the Hurley and the Zisc.

 

"We've noticed a definite hierarchy to Roma's toy preferences: The Zogoflex Hurley is her toy of choice. She's constantly either chewing on it or inviting us to a game of "tug". Her old plastic bones now come last. Real sterilized bones are next. Some other rubber chew toys are a notch above that.

 

We've also had more than our share of geriatric dogs over the years. I think the Zogoflex material will be great for older dogs, since it's still a chew toy, but it isn't a hard bone. I imagine it's good for their gums, too.

 

We love the durability. Roma was raised to be a seeing-eye dog (she was later dropped for medical reasons). During her training, she was only allowed to have rock-hard plastic bones. I think because of these, she has little trouble chewing through anything, particularly dog toys.

 

Roma DID manage to finally chew through her first Zogoflex Hurley after she'd had it a couple of months. West Paw Design immediately replaced her Hurley, and Roma has hardly made a dent!

 

The Zogoflex material continues to amaze us. It's tough stuff. And you have a great product guarantee!"
