If you dogs gets tired of toys quickly, or if you want to have super original and custom dog toys at home, forget about expensive pet shop dog toys.
Our furry friends are easily amused, and it’s not hard to make the best and most fun dog toys yourself!
Here are 5 cool and creative dog toys you can easily make yourself.
The water bottle & cloth toy
Have an empty water bottle and a piece of cloth or old T-shirt around? Then you have all you need to make this toy! Just wrap the bottle in any piece of cloth or clothing.
Your dog will LOVE to bite it and it will make the most satisfying noise. For hot summer days, you can also make this toy with a bottle of frozen water! It will be refreshing for your pooch and will also make a great cold pillow for nap times.
The throwable tennis ball toy
To make this toy you need a tennis ball, and old cloth or T-shirts again!
Wrap the tennis ball in cloth or a T-shirt, and make braid out of the rest of the fabric.
This will make a great throwable toy, perfect to play fetch at the park! It can also be used to play tug of war, and when it rips you can just make a new one.
The tennis ball treat dispenser
Got more spare tennis balls? You can make a fun toy to entertain your dog for a long time.
Just cut a dent in the tennis ball and fill it with treats! Your dog will smell them and try to get them out of the ball. This can keep a dog busy for a very long time! Perfect if you need to draw your dog’s attention away for while, or on days with bad weathers when you can’t go out to play in the parc.
The tennis ball puzzle
Tennis balls, again! Yep, they are a huge favorite among our pups and are cheap as well as easy to come by. For this toy, or rather game, you need a few tennis balls as well as a muffin or cookie dish. Put treats at the bottom of some of the holes in your muffin or cookie dish, and cover all the holes with tennis ball. Your dog will have to pick up and remove the tennis balls to get to the treats! This is also a creative way to feed your dog daily kibble, if your dog is a very fast eater.
This is more of a treat than a toy, but it’s still heaps of fun. Simply freeze some water in cups or ice cube trays (you can also freeze yogurt or fruit juice if your dog likes it) and stick a dog treat shaped like a stick or a bone in it. One it is frozen, you will have a perfect doggy popsicle for your pup to lick and eat! This is also great for hot days.
