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 Bumi is one of those ways!
More solid than the Skamp, these are also nice and chompy for teething puppies.
Here is the official word from West Paw on their Bumi tug toy:
BUILT FOR GENTLE CHEWERS
Flexing to twice its length during tug-o-war, this S-shaped dog toy is a favourite among pets and their people. The smart design makes it fly far and dogs love to carry it around in their mouths as it's lightweight but tough. Great for fetch or flinging, Bumi is one of our most beloved toys.
Dog owners will love that Bumi is:
- Dishwasher safe
- FDA-compliant (meaning it's safe to eat off of)
- Love It Guarantee™
- Made in the U.S.A.
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 toy.
The Bumi is available in three colours: aqua blue, apple green, and tangerine orange, and in two sizes: small (8 inches) and large (9.5 inches)
