Work for a bit but then broke
January 21, 2014
My dog is a Lab mutt (boxer, maybe others).
My dog was enthusiastic to receive this toy and is enthusiastic to play with the toy and me. Great exercise!
However, after about 4-5 plays, one of the knobs ripped off sending both of us backwards.
We've been playing inside due to the cold weather. Each session lasted a maximum of 20 minutes but mostly averaging about 15 minutes.
My dog was never allowed to chew on this toy, it was strictly for us to play tug of war and kept out of reach on a high shelf.
I want to rate this higher due to the excitement and joy my dog received, but the 3 stars get lost due to the fact the toy did not last long, at all.

It's only been a few days since our lab/beagle mix received his Būmi for Christmas. Right now he doesn't show much interest in it. We hope that he will enjoy it more as an outside toy in the Spring.

I kept the bumi to go under the Christmas tree and it is now added to the rest of his zogoflex products. All of my border collie Sam's toys are West Paw and he loves them all. Appear to be indestructible - I would not buy anything else now. Just wish there was an Australian distributor to cut down on postal costs.
BEST DOG TOY EVER!

I have to admit that I was skeptical when my wife brought another so called "Guarenteed to Last" dog toy home. Boy was I wrong. This Bumi Zogoflex is the best one ever! As if it's not great enough that our dog Sofie loves it, can't pull it apart, chew it to pieces or puncture it. The amazing news is that I accidently ran it through my high performance snowblower (not once, but twice). Not a single mark, knick or cut on it.
10 out of ten in every categrory.

This toy gets four paws up from our rescue girl Parker. I put it out for her Christmas morning, she carried it over to her bed and held it in her two front paws to investigate. She is now happily chewing on it.
Great Winter Toy

We actually purchased the Bumi as a gift, but have had one going on two months. So far with winter having been so cold this year already it has with stood the play of both our Blue Heeler and our daughters Mini Australian Shepherd while at -30C. That's a lot to stand up to!
Most flex toys we have had start breaking down, cracking and thus breaking apart by this point. Not the Bumi. It has held together very well. Not even any teeth marks to be seen and we have been using it a lot. And Caleb, our Blue Heeler, loves to chew on his toys, although we do not leave them alone to use it as such.
It has become a favorite of Caleb's.
Highly recommended for the

Highly recommended for the most persistent chewers. I have a Doberman who doesn't just enjoy chewing toys, he actually EATS them. Tried a million different rubbery options and as soon as it would be punctured, he would eat it in a matter of minutes. We have had this for months now and he isn't even able to put a dent in it. Amazed at its durability and its price.

I received the Bumi in my BarkBox subscription, and its great my 71 pound black lab mix loves it. Its built strong and has fun colors. I think its great to get a well made toy that lasts and that is made in the USA.
Puppy loves her "Squiggle"
November 05, 2013
We nicknamed our nine month old pitbull-mastiff mix "destructo-puppy" since she chews through just abut everything! We received this Būmi (aka "Squiggle") in our BarkBox last month and it is our puppy's favorite toy right now! She seems thoroughly entertained just running around and tossing it up in the air, and making it move and bounce in her mouth. This may be why she hasn't gnawed through it just yet! While I know it is guaranteed to last, I know my pup! I'll only let her gnaw/chew on it for a little bit to satisfy her urge when I see her doing so, and then I'll swap it out for a bone that is meant for the type of chewing she's doing. She has only managed to put some small holes in her Būmi thus far. It is really nice knowing that if she does completely destroy this toy we can get a replacement, since she loves it so much!
Indestructible, fun dog toy!

I have a one year old Jack Russell Terrier. As everyone knows, these are very tough, active dogs! I bought about a dozen toys at one time, to give Mixie a lot of options, to keep her busy and happy. All of the other toys are gone now- chewed up, fluff pulled out, squeakers destroyed, etc. This one, however, is still in like-new condition, although it's the one she's played with the most, has had the most fun with, and has chewed on the hardest. I don't know what makes this thing so tough, but it barely even has any tooth marks, after dozens of hours of Moxie just chewing and chewing and chewing on it.
On thing that makes it so great is that it's stretchy, so when plying tug with it, it's easy on the tugger's arm, and by simply holding one end and wiggling it slightly, a 'living' toy is created for the dog to play with. I sometimes hold it or hook it over my foot or am, and work on the compute or something else, while Moxie plays, thinking that she has my full and undivided attention.
Thank you SO much for designing this toy. I love it, Moxie loves it, and it looks like it's going to be around for a long, long, long time!
