To make such a toy is very simple. For its manufacture will need (Fig. 1):
- tennis ball
- strong scissors
- some dry food
A 1-2 cm incision is needed along the line of the ball pattern (Fig. 2).
The arcuate incision is more difficult to open than the straight one and the puppy will have to tinker with it. A little dry food should be put inside the ball – the toy is ready (Fig. 3).
For small puppies, you can prepare a simpler version of the puzzle (Fig. 4).
For young dogs, it is advisable to make educational toys so that the animal can practice its skills. To make a little man you need:
- a couple of plastic jars of candy of different sizes
- 4 plastic bottle caps
- piece of rope
- awl or knife
This toy is convenient because the damaged parts can be replaced periodically with new ones. At will, the toy can be added with any other elements.
In a can of a larger diameter it is necessary to make four holes – two near the neck parallel to each other and two at the bottom. Previously, it is necessary to drill holes in the covers sufficient to allow the rope to pass through them. The rope should be cut into 4 equal parts. A rope is threaded into each of the covers and tied at the end. The other end of each of the ropes must be threaded into the hole in the jar and also tied.
The second jar must be stapled with the first. If the thread coincides, one can be screwed into another, if not – the banks can also be sealed together with ropes. The result will be a funny little man (Fig. 5).
Toys for dogs with their own hands should not be too complicated in execution – they will still be enough for a maximum of a week. You can simplify the previous toy, without the second can. In the bottom of the first several holes are drilled into which the ropes are pulled. At the end of each of the ropes must be strong knots (Fig. 6).
Toys For Puppies And Dogs Do It Yourself

Puppies of any breed love to gnaw around. In order to protect things and furniture, you can make your animal a few ropes. For the manufacture of the cord it is necessary to prepare several pieces of fleece – it is soft enough and will not be able to injure the teeth and gums of the animal. Colors and sizes depend solely on the desire of the master (Fig. 7, 8, 9).
Fleece pieces need to be cut into stripes 2-2.5 cm wide. You can make them already, but this may affect the strength of the finished toy. The optimum width of one tape is 5 cm. Weave is necessary with weaving "lotus". Those who are the first time faced with this technique, can use the scheme (Fig. 10).
Some dogs become attached to ordinary soft toys – sleep with them, carry them everywhere. You can make your pet an individual toy – a bone or a heart (Fig. 11).
For the manufacture of such crafts you need to prepare:
- trimming thick fabric
- stuffing material
The shape of the toy can be arbitrary, it is not necessary to stop at the bone. The pattern can be done independently, or find a sample on the Internet.
It is much easier to draw outlines of the future product with a pencil or a piece of soap on the wrong side of the fabric. It is necessary to leave allowances of 1-1.5 cm for the seam. The toy will consist of two parts. In order to get them the same shape, you can fold the fabric in half and cut both sides at once. If it is planned to make a handicraft of a complex shape, it is advisable to fasten the pieces of fabric together with pins.
The parts need to be sewn from the inside, leaving a small hole for the packing at the end of the packing. The last step is to twist the product, fill it with filler and sew up the hole, slightly bending inwards.
When choosing a filler, you should take into account the specifics of using the toy. So, the best option would be cotton cloth flaps – sooner or later the dog will crack the toy, and the cotton eaten will cause much less harm than cotton or polyester. If you wish, you can stuff a toy with dry rice – for small puppies this is the safest option. Moreover, rustling things for them seem especially interesting.
Such toys can also be used for training – as an aport, a hidden thing for searching or catching in flight.
You can also make educational toys from ordinary socks (fig. 12), putting yellow boxes from them under the kinder surprise toys. When giving a puppy such a toy, you need to constantly make sure that he does not chew up the remnants of the sock – they can cause problems with digestion.
If you wish, you can make a lot of different toys for your pet – for games and dressage. Their production takes a minimum of time and brings a lot of pleasure.
