How To Make Dog Toys Out of Socks

While doing the laundry I found a whole bunch of old socks. A few had holes and others were just missing their mates. Old Socks are a waste.

The entire sock can be in great shape but have just one hole in the toe. If I try mending it, sure it will be uncomfortable to wear. Should I just chuck it or not just.

Then it came to my mind that I can actually make toys out of the sock so my dog has more toys to play with. Please how do I make dog toys out of socks? I really don't want to throw away these socks.

If you don't want to trash your old socks and you want to make dog toys out of them, the simplest way is to put ball in the socks. I will suggest a tennis ball for this toy. It will be a great tennis ball alternative for dogs, because tennis balls by themselves can be quite abrasive to dog’s teeth.

Simply put the ball into the stock. You want the knot to be as close to the ball in the toe as possible.

Boom! There you have a toy that your dog can tug on (the loose end of the sock). You can also throw this toy for a rousing game of fetch.

Also you can make freezer toys out of your old socks.This is a great toy for the summer.

Take an old sock and get it wet. Bring out the stock and pop it into the freezer. When you need a frozen treat for your dog that won’t have calories, just pull this out of the freezer and I’ll have tons of fun.

Sock toys are super simple to make and they are a GREAT way to use up stray socks in your house. The smelly sock toy works particularly well if you have a dog that is anxious when you leave. All you have to do is take an old sock and make sure there are no holes in it. If there are holes, simply sew them up in a rough fix-it job.

Now, you just need to stuff it. Use another sock or scrap fabric. You don’t need to overfill it. Now, just sew up in the open end of the sock and you have a brand-new stuffed toy for your dog.

If you don’t wash the socks and make them “smelly” it will have even more attraction for your dog.

Have you hear of Doughnut Toy before? It's a dog toy you can make with your unwanted socks and it's very fun to make.

To begin the process of making this toy, you will need to grab a pair of scissors and washed old socks.

And if you do not have a couple of old socks at the ready, you may have to drive down the store for a new pair.

  • Once you have your socks, cut off their top. Now, turn those socks inside out and place one on top of the other.
  • Insert one sock inside the other in the same position and roll it up inside.
  • Start rolling at the top as you proceed down to the bottom.
  • After adjusting the rolled up socks on both sides, it should begin looking like a doughnut.

Dogs surprisingly love to play with toys that look like a doughnut. Additionally, it keeps them from causing unwanted chaos inside the house.

Have fun making toys for your dog with the socks.

Marca sounds to soothe your baby and keep them entertained. I have couple of them I made for my dog. A maraca toy can be perfect for your sweet, playful dog. The Maraca toy sounds can especially be great for grabbing the attention of your dog even when he or she is busy.

A short sock, some plastic pebbles, broken rice grains or some seeds, and popcorns are all you need to make this toy. Secure a knot at the bottom of the sock and put the mixture of items inside the sock. Tie a knot somewhere close to the top of the sock but not all the way up. The sock should now make a sound when you shake it. You can use more than one sock to prevent spilling the mixture.
