Eco-Friendly Dog Toys

Published by Shooting The Dog on

As well as our healthy, natural and eco-friendly treats and shampoos we are also stocking a small range of eco-friendly dog toys. Having scoured the planet for the sort of things we were looking for we discovered West Paw toys. Their eco-friendly ethos seemed to match ours, so we decided to look at stocking some of their toys. If we find that they are as popular as we hope they will be, then we will look at expanding the range.

These dog toys are only available in the studio and are not available in our web shop. So pop down and see us on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays to check them all out. But, in the meantime, we thought we would introduce you to what we have in stock.

Zogoflex Toys by West Paw

What Is Zogoflex?

Zogoflex is amazingly tough material that is buoyant and pliable, designed to be recyclable, and it creates virtually no waste during the manufacturing process.

Non-toxic, the Zogoflex material is made in the USA to create dog toys that are both fun and durable.

If your dog damages their Zogoflex Jive or you feel it just wasn’t up to snuff you are eligible for a free one-time replacement or refund per shape (excl postage). Full guarantee details here.

Eco-Friendly

Zogoflex dog toys can be recycled into more Zogoflex—over and over again.

Leftover shapes from toy moulds, old Zogoflex toys or toys that didn’t meet West Paw Design’s standards all get sanitized, ground up, and fed back into their machine to make more completely new bouncy, fun and bright Zogoflex toys. Nothing diminishes Zogoflex’s potency—it can literally be recycled indefinitely.
