Does your dog go through dog toys frequently? Tired of spending money on toys? There are easy ways you can create dog toys at home that your pup will love. Repurpose items you already have in the house and have some fun with these DIY dog toys.
1. Water Bottle Scrunch Toy
This is one of our favorite DIY dog toys to put together. Simply put an empty plastic water bottle inside of a sock or wrapped in a t-shirt and voila! Your dog will love the scrunch and crunch of the water bottle and will have a hard time getting to the plastic beneath the fabric.
Note: If your dog is a serious chewer, or sock swallower, be careful with this one. If they rip the sock off, you don’t want your pup to swallow it.
