Fergus fine for all but the most dedicated toy destroyers
February 10, 2019
I'm a dog trainer and am always on the lookout for toys to give as gifts to my client dogs, as well as toy recommendations for my human clients. I've tried playing with Fergus with a number of client dogs and it's worked out well for most of them. For a plush toy it is amazingly durable, even when dogs play tug with each other with it. I have had a couple dogs who diligently pulled out the purple fabric or ripped the toy but for all but the most aggressive chewers, I'd give Fergus a thumbs up. It's an expensive toy but in my experience, West Paw has stood behind its guarantee policy without questions.
Fergus - on the Fence
December 30, 2018
Fergus has proven to be tough enough to endure the chew monster, but it is too heavy and too big. Our puppy (chew monster) is only 10 lbs and he has a hard time carrying Fergus.
Fergus also gets very dirty very quickly. We humans don’t want to touch him after he has been slobbered on and pushed around the floor.
I would love to see a smaller version of Fergus with smaller hands and Berber carpet for fur.
Fergus finds a home

Soak Jef my cairn into local pet shop. She stole West Paw spring chicken right off a hook and went to it. That lasted about 3 days before she shredded it. I went on line and learned about the West Paw line up and purchased Fergus. Fergus is great. He’s The cairn’s favorite toy, she’s using him as a pillow as I type this up. Old Fergie has taken a beating and still has his eyes and his squeaker. She doesn’t really chew or care much for his rubber hands(why 4 and not 5 stars) but she sure likes to tear his hair out, he’s endured that pretty well and still looks furry enough. Fergus is pretty pricey but I’ve not had a fuzzy dog toy come close to lasting as long as he has and she seems to be settling down with the hair removal project so I’ve fingers crosssd he will last a good long time now that he’s survived the initial abuse. My dog loves this toy and I get a good laugh watching her with him so is worth it to me.
Not as tough as expected

Let me start by saying I have had wonderful past experience with West Paw Design products as it pertains to the solid rubber toys. I have 3 dogs and they are tough on toys. I was skeptical about buying toys with a plush component. I bought one for each dog. My Doberman mix had his torn open in less than 20 minutes and my other dogs were pulling fur out of theirs. I had to take all three toys away. That being said the short time they had them they enjoyed them but a lot of money for a little fun for my dogs. Like I said I love the solid toys West Paw makes but the plush were not for my dogs.

My older female Tara grabbed this toy away from small Nepal right out of the box. She took it outside and laid on it ! It was hilarious. I should have bought one for each dog. This one is the new favorite shake and tug toy!

While I generally have been very pleased with West Paw products, the Rowdie was totally disappointing. I paid a premium price for an American made toy that was billed as durable, but my Boston Terrier tore it up in a couple of hours. I don't know if it was an issue of expectations on my part or marketing on West Paw's part, but this toy was definitely not durable.
If your dog is an aggressive chewer/shredder, this toy may not be right for you.
