My my pooches love the satisfaction they get when their victims (aka toys) squeal/squeak or crackle while they’re fiercely tearing off their limbs, but they go through toys like crazy. So I decided to make my own after being inspired by a DIY toy I found on Irresistible Pets. This has been a great alternative to buying new toys all the tim. Even better, they love it and it cost me…$0.00.
This is all you need for my technique: A sock, plastic water bottle, scissors & string.
The Irresistible Pets instructions called for material, but I couldn’t find any, so I got to thinking…what could I use instead? Well, I have like 20 socks in the laundry room just waiting on their mate (which is pointless because I never, EVER find the other sock) so I just grabbed one of those. All I had to do was slide the bottle in the sock, snip off the end, tightly tie up the end of the sock & then fray the edges. This took me all of 1 minute to make & as you can see from the middle picture, my pooches, Scraps & Murray, loved it. The only problem I had was that they kept fighting over who got to keep it in their bed…you know, typical dog drama , so I’ll have to whip up another one over my kiddos nap time ;)
