Homemade Dog Toys

As school is winding down, and summer is about to begin, pets all over are cheering because now they can play with their friends. And children are preparing to play with man’s best friend. So here are 3 easy homemade dog toys that you can make using items around your house.

 

Chew/Throw Toy

Materials:

  1. 1-2 Tennis Balls or Golf Balls (We Recommend Using Tennis Balls Because They Are a Little More Safer)
  2. 2-3 Old Socks

Directions:

  1. First put the tennis balls in one sock (make sure to shove the tennis balls all the way down to the bottom of the sock)
  2. Next, tie off the end of the sock so that the tennis balls don’t come out
  3. Put the other sock over the sock and tennis balls and tie them off
  4. Repeat Step 3 as many times as you would like with however many sock you have

 

Braided T-Shirt Toy

Materials:

  1. An Old or Gently Used Shirt That You Don’t Want or Care For
  2. Fabric Scissors or Regular Scissors (Fabric Scissors Work Better When Cutting the Shirt)

Directions:

  1. Take the old shirt and cut it in half so that you have the front of the shirt and the back of the shirt seperated.
  2. Then take either side (the front or the back it does not matter) and start cutting it into long strips.
  3. Once the t-shirt is all cut into strips, take two strips out and gather the rest together in a bunch.
  4. Using the strip that you took out, tie the other strips that are in a bunch together.
  5. Then divide the strips into 3 sections and start braiding them together. (To Braid divide the strips into 3 sections and cross the right section over the middle section. Then cross the left section over the middle section.)
  6. Once you have finished braiding, tie the end using the other strip you took out.
  7. Cut off any excess shirt that is sticking out.

 

Water Bottle Treat Dispenser

Materials:

  1. An Empty, Dry Plastic Water Bottle
  2. Scissors and An Exacto Knife
  3. A Sock To Fit Over the Water Bottle
  4. Small Treats or Dog Kibble

Directions:

  1. Make sure the lid on the water bottle is closed.

For Steps 2 and 4 A Parent Should Help Or Supervise

  1. Then take the exacto knife and cut a hole in the water bottle.
  2. Put a sock over the water bottle.
  3. Then cut a hole in the sock where the hole in the water bottle is.
  4. Unscrew the cap on the water bottle and put treats in.
  5. Set the water bottle down and let the dog play.
