We’ve been big fans of West Paw Design for a lot of years now. Their Zogoflex toys are one of the few that have consistently stood up to many of our destructive dogs. Our late golden retriever, Sheba, was one of the worst, but Luke would give her a run for her money too. He is either maturing, or Sheba egged him on…but he’s been a bit better. He still has his moments though, I recently had to take a ball away from him that he was chewing on and consuming the pieces of (NOT a West Paw product)!

We’ve had a good variety of toys from West Paw. While the Zogoflex balls are Cricket’s favorite, we’ve had many plush toys too. They just didn’t stand up quite as well. I was very interested to read about this new line of Rowdies™ Durable Plush Toys, and to get an opportunity to try them out.
These toys are made with both HardyTex™ and Zogoflex®, and they are guaranteed! What other features are important to me?
- They are non-toxic and eco-friendly. That’s another reason this brand has always appealed to me. When Luke might chew off and accidentally swallow a little piece, I feel less worried since at least it’s not something toxic.
- They are made right in Bozeman, Montana, home of West Paw.
- Hardy-Tex is a tough plush fabric that is reinforced with mesh backing for enhanced durability. Hardy-Tex was developed and tested by West Paw to ensure its toughness.
- They’re machine washable!
- The Zogoflex Chew Zone is really cool. I wasn’t sure Luke would go for it, but you can see in the photos below that he was really into chomping right down on that (and you can’t tell he did – not even a dent!).
Now Cricket is not as excited about toys as Luke is (she is 13 years old after all!). She will play with them but only on occasions when she’s in the mood. So Luke is our chief toy tester around here. So the big question was would he like them (and consistently like them, because he gets bored really easy with toys too), and would he choose a favorite? You’ll find the answer to the latter question in the video below.
I’m hoping these will definitely be keepers, and that maybe Cricket will take a turn with them soon too!
