And we want the fun to go on... and on.

That’s why we guarantee very product. We’ll replace or refund any product that doesn’t live up to your customers’ standards. We also care about how we make the things dogs love. After all, we want our best friends to be safe and healthy. We thoughtfully design and manufacture products in our factory in Bozeman, MT so we know what goes into every product.

Beyond dogs, we care about people and the planet too. We’re eco-friendly in our materials and manufacturing choices and people-friendly in our business choices. It’s not easy being dog’s best friend, but, it’s worth it.

This will help us on our way to become a transformative global business leader that unleashes our people’s greatest talents to create amazing pet products.“

      Manufacture 100% of their products in the USA; employing 70+ people

      Manufacture 98% of their products in the same facility as their offices in Bozeman, Montana 

      91% of source materials are from US-based vendors 

      Create pet products that are safe: BPA and phthalate-free, non-toxic and FDA compliant 

      Use a third-party ecological certifier to test the safety of many toys and beds 

      Use recycled paper and soy-based inks in their packaging 

      Support industries who produce environmentally-friendly materials or agricultural products such hemp and recycled plastic. 

      Incorporate plastic fiber from recycled bottles into bed and toy fabric and fill, (to date they have utilized the plastic from over 19 million bottles) 

      Continue to add products to their Join the Loop™ closed-loop recycling program so customers can send back products for recycling.

  • The Original Dog Toys Reinvented

    (June 2018, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) Bozeman, Montana-based West Paw introduces NEW Zogoflex Echo™, their third collection of award-winning toys made with their super tough, non-toxic Zogoflex® material. 

    For centuries dogs have enjoyed playtime with the basics—sticks and tennis balls. Although playing fetch with these toys seems harmless enough, sticks can leave tongue splinters and puncture mouths and throats, while tennis balls are made with toxic glue and intestine blocking fuzz.

    Rando® and Zwig® are West Paw worthy alternatives to fuzzy tennis balls and splintery sticks. Super squishy due to their hollow core, these updated toys are more durable and a lot more fun than the humble originals. Built for moderate chewers, these lightweight toys are beyond bouncy and deliver a satisfying spring.

    • Classic ball with an asymmetrical shape for fun and erratic bounce to keep dogs engaged
    • Soft, hollow construction is easy on the teeth (think, puppies and older dogs) 
    • Two sizes fit in standard and extra large ball throwers.

    Skamp™ with Zogoflex®: Built for moderate chewers

    MSRP $17.95 8.5” x 8.5”
