We all have lots of socks laying around. If you have a dog or two (or so), then you likely know they love socks. Treat a furry friend or family member by giving them a sock they can actually have. But don't just give them a sock. Make it into a fun toy that will last a bit longer than a sock in its normal state. Plus, get some use out of those stray socks you keep in your drawer for absolutely no reason. Here’s how to make an awesome knotted dog toy from your mismatched socks.
Which types of socks can be used? Pretty much all socks can be used to make a dog toy. Simply gather all the old socks you have around the house, be they old or new, tiny or huge, holy or whole. Make sure they are all clean, of course. The knot tying process will cover up most holes, so your dog can then make more during play.
Make a knotted dog toy from one sock. To make this toy, all you need to do is tie multiple knots down the length of the sock until you can't make anymore. Almost done! You can then fray the ends for more enjoyment by your dog. To do this, take some scissors and cut thin strips in the fabric at both ends of the knotted sock. This also makes the homemade dog toy look a bit more fancy. The longer socks make the biggest toys and the shorter ones are best for small dogs. Length, thickness, and size of the dog toys will depend on the type of socks you have.
Now that you’ve made your knotted dog toy, toss it for your furry friend and watch the fun!
