The 5 easiest HOMEMADE DOG TOYS for aggressive chewers every dog parent should know about

Do you tend to spend a lot on buying dog toys? Does your pup go through toys like his life depends on it? If yes, then you need to learn how to make homemade dog toys for your beloved chewer.

My boy Delta Bunny cannot allow his new toys to even last a day in that velociraptor mouth of his. Within five minutes of getting a new toy, I will be provided with its carcass and a very innocent face telling me, “momma get something stronger..this one did not last...hehe

So if you have a pup like mine, then you need to master the art of making homemade dog toys. The techniques I will show you here are super simple, easy and can be made with items available around your home. Also, you don’t have to worry about dealing with the toy’s carcass as you can re-fix it in no time.

Let’s begin...

Homemade toy 1: THE SOCK BOTTLE TOY

Items needed:
  • An old sock or stocking
  • A plastic bottle at least half the size of the sock

How to make:
  • Remove the cap of the bottle
  • Put the bottle in the sock and push it right till the end of the sock
  • Tie a simple knot at the end of the bottle
  • Your sock bottle toy is ready

Bonus tip: You can put a couple of treats in the bottle before putting it in the sock. The noises made by the treats hitting the bottle will keep your pup from getting bored for a long time

This is a personal favorite of mine.

Items needed:

How to make:

  • Put the treat in the center and roll the cloth width wise.
  • Tie a knot securing the treat inside the knot.
  • You can make as many treat knots as you want.
