Homemade Dog Toy Ideas

Tired of buying expensive dog toys that only last your pup for about 30 minutes?  Learn to make better and cheaper dog toys at home that your dog will enjoy even more than store bought ones.  It is important to only use safe materials when making toys.  Items such as buttons and strings can easily come off and be a choking hazard to your pet.  One idea for a toy is a fleece pull toy.  All you need is three long strips of thick fleece.  Tie the strips together at the end in one big knot.  Then braid the strips and tie a knot at the opposite end.  This is a safe and fun toy for your dog.  You can also make pull toys out of old pairs of jean.  Cut the legs off of a pair of jeans and tie some knots in them.  Burn the edges of the jeans to prevent strings from coming off and fraying.  You can also make tennis ball toys.  Take a clean sock and put a tennis ball in it. Make sure it goes all the way to the toe and tie a knot in the middle of the sock.  You can use then end opposite of the ball to sling it across the room and your dogs will love to chase it.  Another idea for a ball toy is to cut a slit into opposite sides of a tennis ball.  Fish a rope through one hole and out the other and tie a knot at each end.  This is another great toy to throw for your pooch.  After making toys for your own pet, consider making some for your local humane society or shelter.  Those pets will appreciate your creations too!
