Homemade Toys for Dogs

Watching your puppy go through another toy and rip it apart might make you think again about buying another expensive chew toy. These toys could cost ten or more dollars and you're the puppy's not really going to mind the cost, as long as it has fun. Instead of buying the toys, why don't you just make one? For less than 5 dollars, you can give your dog a new toy to chew on and you won't have to worry about the cost. Below are a few ideas on homemade chew toys.

 Sock toys

 Your old socks are probably piling up somewhere in your drawer. Some of them lost their pairs years ago and no matter what you do, you can't just find them. You can get really creative with what you're going to place in the sock. You can put a tennis ball, treats, and soft bones just to name a few. Before you make the sock into a chew toy, wash it first. To make it sturdier, you can layer a few socks together so if the first layer rips, the toy can still survive. The only downside of giving your dog a sock to chew on is that it might think all socks are toys, so train them properly and teach them how to identify their toy and your new pair for socks.

 Water bottles

 If you have a few empty water bottles lying around and you want to recycle them, then tie them up and turn them into an inexpensive toy for your dog. Like the sock, you can stuff the water bottle with whatever you want. Your dog will have fun for hours trying to get to the little treats inside the bottle. Poke little holes on the bottle and take the cap out. Fill it with crushed or small dog treats and watch your pup go crazy over the bottle. This is also a good toy for old dogs, especially if they have degenerative myelopathy.

 Sew some up

 Scrap fabrics and other things you can probably find in your old arts and crafts kit can help you make a great ragdoll or plushy that your dog can play with. There are hundreds of tutorials on the internet that can teach you how to make simple plushies using recycled materials. These soft toys are not only great for puppies, but they'll work for dogs with degenerative myelopathy.
