DIY Dog Toy

Do you have a pup that LOVES toys?  

When we first met Nash, he loved to play with all the toys at the shelter so we knew we needed to be sure he had enough of his own toys to play with here at home.

Nash has small bits of energy all throughout the day.  One minute he’s laying down sleeping and the next he’s throwing his monkey around!

Roman on the other hand, he loves to carry the toys around like a blanket.  It’s WAY cute.

There are so many types of dog toys on the market, but sometimes you pup just wants to play with your slipper?  Am I right?

So instead of giving up your favorite slippers to the dog, why not make your own dog toy?

STEP ONE

Cut small slits in the t-shirts (about an inch or two long).

STEP TWO

Using the slits you just cut, rip each of them off of the t-shirt.  (I was hesitant at first, but it works like magic.)

STEP THREE

Once you have enough of both colors, bundle them together and tie a knot at the top.

STEP FOUR

Once the knot is in place, split the strips of t-shirt into 3 and braid them.  (If you don’t know how to braid you may need to google it.)
