How to Make a Tennis Ball Dog Toy


How to 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 and 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! Did you know Did you know? Dog breeds considered highly intelligent include
the border collie, poodle, and German shepherd.

    Good idea about attaching a rope to the tennis ball as a handle. That way you don't have to get your hand completely drenched in slobber, lol.

    think about it, the toy is like 3 bucks after the full tube of tennis balls you have to buy thats like 2 or 3 in itself. and then the rope is like 5 bucks for a rope

    You'll associate 'chew toy' with your socks…encouraging him to destroy your things.

    If the glue from the tennis ball doesn't completely destroy your dogs teeth, he might manage to rip that ball open to swallow that bell.

    Seriously, just spend the $10 on a Kong or something similar.

    @MaRbLeDrOpS No. You're wrong. The bell idea is dangerous. How many dogs do you know that wouldn't chew that thread in about 2 minutes? The glue from the tennis ball will damage your dogs teeth regardless of how close you watch him. How do you suggest you train a dog to distinguish between a non-toy sock and a toy sock?

    @ChiefParagon No, tennis balls are soft and holow and a dog could split it in half. It won't do much. πŸ™‚

    I have a border collie- they're great dogs but require a lot of maintenance because they are high energy and need to be exercised. Also they are happiest if they have a job to do. Despite his sensitivity and maintenance, I love my border collie. He is so smart and he can learn anything if I tried to teach him!

    Guys don't do the trick with the sock

    If the dog eats a piece of it, it will clog his intestines and he'll have trouble going to the bathroom

    I wouldn't advise letting a dog chew on or play with socks full stop, since they then could chew and swallow your other socks, leading to intestinal blockage . Also, playing tug of war can result in you being accidentally bitten. Just playing fetch with the ball is better.
