Both Wolly and Tigg like a good game of fetch, and whilst I am not wild about it - there are valid concerns that the repetitive nature and the sudden stops can cause excessive wear on joints and contribute to injury - I try to find a balance and let them have some enjoyment in a manner that is as safe as possible. Charging off to retrieve a West Paw Skamp is one of those ways!
These are also nice and chompy for teething puppies.
Here is the official word from West Paw on their Skamp toy:
The West Paw Zogoflex® Echo Skamp is a tough, bouncy and flexible dog toy with three curved extensions for tossing and tugging and features a hollow centre for lighter weight and squishy feel. The Skamp is floatable and can be used in water.
Why Dogs Love it:
Built for moderately tough chewers, Skamp® is safer than sticks but ready for toss, fetch and tug-of-war. By combining an engaging three-lobe shape with superior durability, Skamp gives dogs that bounce-back resistance they love. Skamp flies far and floats for water-loving dogs. It's fun for two dogs, super bouncy and squeezy for dogs who love to chew.
Why We Love it:
- Safer than a stick
- Flyer inspired & fun to throw
- Great for Tug-of-War
- Fun for two dogs
- Top-rack dishwasher safe
- BPA and phthalate-free

- Backed by the Love It Guarantee™
