How To: Make a tennis ball dog toy

Make a tennis ball dog toy

Your dog doesn't care how much you spend on their toys – they just want to play! Here's how to provide some homemade fun.
You Will Need
* Tennis balls
* A clean sock
* Rope
* A knife
* A jingle bell
* A strong needle and thread

Step 1
Stuff a tennis ball inside a sweat sock and knot the sock's open end. Now you have a toy you can play tug of war with or throw.

Use a clean sock so your dog doesn't associate your scent with your clothes and chew them indiscriminately.

Step 2
Cut two slits in a tennis ball, one on either side. Thread rope through the ball and knot it to make a handle.

Step 3
Use the rope handle to throw the ball or to play tug of war.

Step 4
Make a small hole in another tennis ball, and insert a jingle bell. Sew the opening with a sturdy needle and thread.

Step 5
Enjoy your dog toys and play with your dog often. You'll both get exercise!

Fact: Dog breeds considered highly intelligent include the border collie, poodle, and German shepherd.
