33 DIY Dog Toys from Things Around the House | BarkPost
We used to have a dog like this. In fact, we're STILL pulling giraffe stuffing out of crevices in our furniture, three years later! What I discovered, though, is that he had no prejudice regarding the shape of his toys. And I had a heavy-duty needle for my sewing machine. I picked up some really cheap canvas and heavy denim fabric and some stuffing, and came up with creative shapes for homemade toys. Unlike stuffed toys for a child, those for a dog don't have to teach anything; they just have to be fun for the dog to chew on. The specific shapes are to please the humans, not the dogs. Another thing to keep in mind is that your sewing doesn't have to be exact or perfect because all your puppy cares about is that she can eventually rip it apart. So you don't have to have your seams totally lined up, which makes the sewing process faster. You might even find some of that fake lambswool fabric on sale. You can shape it into a stick figure or bone if you like and it will be just like the $8 item I saw at Petco yesterday. (And ask your puppy to shred one in memory of Louchi, who once managed to keep a giraffe for a week, but otherwise made sure that no stuffed toy saw the sun set in HIS domain!)
An indestructible chew toy made from rope and dried sweet potatoes
I have a sweet, hyper little puppy who just loves to play with stuffed animals. We've been buying the heavy-duty pet-type stuffed animals at the pet store, since she has very strong jaws and sharp teeth, but these tiny little toys are anywhere from $5 to $20 dollars each. And ultimately she still manages to pull the stuffing out of them in about a month. Does anyone have any ideas for sturdy stuffed animal toys for dogs that are cheaper?
