3 Creative Dog Toy Ideas

The one thing you can be sure of when it comes to dog toys is that they’re going to get destroyed. It’s a sad but true fact and if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to spend the money on expensive toys that your dog will tear apart in a matter of hours. 


When it comes to DIY dog toys, there’s no need to buy expensive items. A dog toy doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If you have the time and inclination, you can make some great toys from things that you probably already have in your home! 


Tennis ball tug-o-war: Cut two holes on opposite sides of a tennis ball, then thread a piece of fabric through the holes to make a handle. To make the toy more durable, plait two pieces of rope together.


Cardboard tubes: Do you have an abundance of cardboard tubes laying around in excess? Don’t throw them away! Instead, cut them into pieces and give them to your furry friend. The rolls make great toys because they’re lightweight, easy to carry and they roll around just like a ball. It’s just like playing fetch but with a cardboard tube!


Old stuffies and clothes: If you have some old clothes or an old toy that you don’t use anymore, save them for your dog! Not only is it more cost-effective, but it will give them something to do while they wait for you to come home from work or while they wait for their food.


It should go without saying that this is just a small sample of the wide variety of DIY dog toy ideas you will find on the internet. There are many more if you’re willing to put in the time and effort to search them out.
