Updated: DIY Dog Toy with Video Tutorial

DIY Dog Toy

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 ;)

Check out my video tutorial to see just how quick this toy is to make and how effective it is at keeping your pups entertained.

    Considering the great joy that dogs get in chewing water bottles, this is great!

    I wish my Lucy would not chew the material toys. I’ve only found one rubber squeaker she won’t demolish!
