Chew vs. Play - Choose the right dog toy

Posted April 18, 2012

How do you choose the safest dog toy for your pet's chew and play habits? At West Paw we've seen (and heard) it all - some dogs are simply snugglers while other dogs have jaws so strong they can chomp through concrete. And safety is paramount to all of us who make your dog's toys. This is why when it comes to choosing the best dog toy, you need to consider your dog’s personality, chew and play habits, as well as how much you interact with your dog at playtime. To help you out, we've created the chart below to help you make the best decision. (And for your pet's safety, please be sure to monitor your dog whenever you introduce a new dog toy.)


Chew or Play - Please remember your dog’s safety is your responsibility. No dog toy is indestructible. Choose only toys that are the appropriate shape and size for your dog and always supervise your dog’s use of Zogoflex toys until you are confident that your dog can play with the toy safely. If your dog is one of the few that can damage the toy, discontinue use of the toy and take advantage of our Love It Guarantee™.
