Your dog doesn't care how much you spend on their toys – they just want to play! Here's how to provide some homemade fun.
You will need
- Tennis balls
- A clean sock
- A knife
- A jingle bell
- A strong needle and thread
Step 1 Stuff a tennis ball inside a sweat sock and knot the sock’s open end. Now you have a toy you can play tug of war with or throw.
Use a clean sock so your dog doesn’t associate your scent with your clothes and chew them indiscriminately.
Step 2 Cut two slits in a tennis ball, one on either side. Thread rope through the ball and knot it to make a handle.
Step 3 Use the rope handle to throw the ball or to play tug of war.
Step 4 Make a small hole in another tennis ball, and insert a jingle bell. Sew the opening with a sturdy needle and thread.
Step 5 Enjoy your dog toys and play with your dog often. You’ll both get exercise!
