I did a google search but couldn't find what I was looking for.

I'm interested in making tug toys for my dogs. I had seen some at a local flee market that used fleece and a tennis ball. They wanted $20 for one toy :eek: and I figured it couldn't be too terribly difficult to make. Of course, I can't find anything online with directions.

Does anyone know of anything like this? How would I go about making it. Thanks much!

Do you mind posting what you found? We recently got an older puppy and she goes through toys like no tomorrow and I'm tired of spending a bunch of $$ on them!

I had seen these with a tennis ball on the end. I figured I can do this pretty cheap. Plus, we're having a dog themed party for my DD's second birthday. I thought it would be nice to make some for the dogs to play with and take home :)

We bought one and our dog loves it! It was $10!

I'm going to have to try to make a few and save some $$!

Our dog loves playing with an empty water bottle. He loves the sound it makes when it is squeezed. He fetches it, throws it in the hair and plays tug with us. When it starts to get icky, I recycle it, and give another one to him.
