West Paw – Boz


Light, bouncy and soft enough for dogs to catch with their mouths’, Boz® (ryhmes with nose) is a floatable dog ball has a durable exterior texture that engages fetch fanatics.

While human hands can’t typically squish Boz, dogs can compress the ball between their teeth giving them a satisfying endorphin release. Better than a tennis ball, Boz is more durable, squishy and doesn’t contain any toxic glues or lead. Size small fits in a standard ball thrower.

Like all of our Zogoflex® and Zogoflex Air® dog toys, Boz is recyclable, made in the USA, floatable, guaranteed against dog damage, latex-free, BPA and phthalate-free, FDA compliant, non-toxic and dishwasher safe.

Remember to choose appropriate toys for your dog and to always be safe.

Posted August 16, 2015

There are many reasons why the Boz® ball is better than a tennis ball for dogs.  Boz is a tough dog ball that won’t easily break like a tennis ball. Boz is made in the USA from non-toxic materials, while many companies far and wide produce tennis balls, and many may contain toxic materials. See the full comparison below as to why the Boz dog ball is so much better than a tennis ball for your dog.  But remember, similarly to a tennis ball, Boz is NOT A CHEW TOY and is meant for interactive play between a human and a dog. Always know your dog’s behavior before leaving them alone with a toy. Boz is available in three easy-to-spot colors (currant, dandelion and peacock) and two sizes. Size small fits in a standard ball thrower.
