Review: West Paw Skamp Dog Toy


The vast majority of dogs love to play with toys. Some prefer a soft stuffed toy while others enjoy a rousing game of fetch with their favorite ball. Whether your dog likes to tug, chase or chew, the West Paw Skamp Dog Toy will meet his needs.

West Paw SkampWest Paw is known for designing unique toys that are made for all types of play. West Paw is a very reputable company, which is something that is extremely important to me as a pet owner and as a consumer.

Their toys are made in the USA, including the West Paw Skamp Toy, which is something that means a lot to me. They also offer a one-time replacement or refund guarantee. This is important to me, and it should be important to you too if you don't want to waste your money on dog products that won't stand up to your pet's chewing.

West Paw Skamp Dog Toy Review

West Paw SkampThe West Paw Skamp Dog Toy is made of Zogoflex, an extremely durable material that is buoyant, pliable and recyclable. It feels like a very soft rubber, and it's soft on your dog's mouth.

My favorite thing about Zogoflex is that there is virtually no waste created during the manufacturing process. West Paw just takes all the scraps and turns them into more Zogoflex dog toys. Talk about an eco-friendly product!

In fact, the company also has an initiative called Join the Loop. This program encourages dog owners to send old, worn out Zogoflex dog toys back to the company to be recycled into new Zogoflex toys. They can be recycled over and over again!

Zogoflex is also non-toxic, phthalate free and FDA compliant. That means they are safe enough to eat off – not that you'd want to. As I mentioned, they are also made in the USA (Montana, to be exact).

As you can see in my video review, the West Paw Skamp dog toy can be used as a fetch toy, as a water toy or as a tug toy. Your dog can also use it independently as a chew toy. Saddie loves fetching it, because the unique shape makes it bounce erratically.

The rounded edges are soft on your dog's mouth, and it doesn't splinter like a stick or rip apart like a rope or plush toy. The Zogoflex material doesn't absorb water or drool either, so you don't have to worry about odor problems.

You can purchase the West Paw Skamp Dog Toy on Amazon for $17.95. While that is quite expensive for a dog toy, you have to consider the value of the toy that you're getting. Considering the eco-friendly, safe and durable material that the toy is made of and the 1-time replacement offered by West Paw, I believe the Skamp is a good value for the money.
