Zwig or twig? Madison and her friend Meru had to decide what to play with. Most of the time, Madison enjoys a good stick, but Meru often prefers a fun toy. Let’s see how the challenge ended with these dogs.
My GBGV Life received the Zwig™ in this post to review. My GBGV Life receives no additional benefits for barking about WestPaw™ products or the company. The opinions in this review are the honest opinion of My GBGV Life. WestPaw is not responsible for the contents of this post.
Normally Bailie would take the job of official toy tester, but having a leg injury, she is not allowed to run around, and play with toys. Nevertheless, she did want to do a bit of testing herself. The Zwig from WestPaw, is part of the Zogoflex Echo™ collection, which makes the toys durable, bouncy, and they float! These toys are made in the USA, and have no latex, BPA, phthalate or toxic inks. Zwigs are also top rack dishwasher safe for occasional cleaning.
Mom let Bailie take it into the yard, where she walked around with it, and tested out the chewing aspects. The Zwig is lightweight, hollow and flexible, making it nice to chomp on. My sisters are not allowed to bring sticks into the yard because they chew on them, and try to eat them. Sticks can be dangerous to dogs who ingest them, often leaving splinters and puncture wounds in a dog’s tongue, mouth, and throat.
Madison didn’t really want to play with the Zwig unless Bailie played with her, so she decided to bring it over to her friend Meru. They enjoy playing games together, and he is a big toy enthusiast! He took an interest in the new toy right away.
Zwig or twig? Meru will take the Zwig, and take it he did. Madison was left in the dust while he ran off with the Zwig.
He tried some tug a war games with the new toy and found it worked really well. Despite a lot of pulling, and grasping it with sharp teeth, the Zwig remained intact.
Fetch was even more fun for Meru. He loved to chase it down as it bounced around upon landing. It was super easy to pick up once it stopped bouncing, and then he could race full speed back to the human with it for another throw.
Playing a game of tug a war when he returned with the Zwig was an added bonus. The poor fellow appears to be a bit crazed from the fun of it all! Meru definitely prefers a Zwig over a twig.

Don’t forget! WestPaw always offers the Love it Guarantee™! If you don’t love your toy, WestPaw will make it right.

That sure looks like a very special chewy stick!
It’s really good for fetching type dogs.
Rye loves WestPaw toys and she also loves sticks, so I’m not sure if she could choose between the two. She’d probably grab one of each and play with them in the yard 🙂
Bailie wanted the Zwig, Meru loves the Zwig, Madison prefers a twig!
ha I think the tail of Meru is like a statement… that toy totally rocks!
He really enjoyed it. Madison enjoyed chasing after him.
Much better than a real twig. That looks like a toy even Torrey would play with.
Bailie and Meru both enjoy it, but Madison prefers the old twig.

WOW, I’m amazed that is ti hollow and holds up to heavy chewing and tugging, my little bro, ELbe needs that! I’ll tell mom. your friend, Chablis
WestPaw makes awesome toys, but Madison prefers the furry toys. Bailie enjoys these type of toys, and Meru sure does too.
My Golden Life says
Madison and Ducky would be great friends, I think! Ducky would much prefer a real twig over a toy that’s shaped like one.
Madison isn’t keen on rubber like toys for some reason. She loves furry ones.

West Paw makes quality toys! The Zwig looks like lots of fun. I’m sure Bailie will love it when she can play again. ☺
It will be waiting for her as Madison won’t play alone with toys.

Chewing on it was Luke’s favorite thing, and it’s good Bailie can at least get to do that! It looks like it was definitely a big hit with Meru, who really put it to the test!
Meru was really into fetch and tug with it. He’s that kind of a guy.
Jodi Stone says
I like the idea that it floats. Delilah is not a fetch dog, unless it’s in water. So that would be a great toy for her.
It would be a lot of fun in the water, but we didn’t have water to play with it in.
