How to make toys for dogs with your own hands?
Dogs of any age and size love to play. In order to please your pet preferences, it is better for fun to use homemade inventory. Toys can be designed for physical or intellectual development. Before making it is important to take into account the size of the dog and its level of activity.
Homemade options for active games
When organizing the leisure of the dog, you can use the remedies. The easiest option is to tie a treat by the end of the playing stick. A more difficult way is to sew a soft toy of an interesting form.
In the process of manufacture, it is important to use only safe materials, since, for example, synthetics can harm with random swallowing.
Such a toy is suitable for a dog of any size and age. The rope can be made of rope or fabric flaps. Tissue trim should be soft and have a size of 3-5 cm long. When using the Lotos technique, you can make a universal inventory for games at home. Step-by-step instruction looks like this:
- Spread on a flat surface two segments of fabric or rope Cross-cross;
- The lower end of the upper strip under an acute angle must be put on top of the bottom strip so that both ends of the top are directed to the right;
- The upper tip of the lower strip should be arranged on top of the two previous ends so that it is directed up;
- The upper end of the upper strip must be arranged on top of two parts of another band so that it is directed to the left;
- The upper tip of the bottom stripes put on top of the bottom end and skip between the parts of the upper strip;
- Neat motion pull all 4 tips;
- Repeat weaving to the desired rope length.
Choose the size of the rope for the dog is quite simple - the distance must be 4-5 cm more than the grip of the jaw. In this case, the dog will not be able to accidentally swallow the toy during entertainment. You can tie several nodes at the ends to further limit the snacking.
In the aviary for a puppy you can hang a toy on the rope. The design should be durable to withstand the head of small paws and teeth. Pick up a strong rope of the desired length and ball for tennis. Use the sewer, the stationery knife, or analogues to make holes as tools. Step by step making design looks as described below.
- The ball needs to make 2 holes from opposite sides. The diameter of the excavation should be slightly less (by 1-2 mm) than the diameter of the rope.
- Through the holes need to stretch the rope so that one end is a little shorter than the other.
- As you get closer, you will touch the nodes on the rope - they will interfere with slipping.
Most dogs love just tremble and wear something in your teeth. Homemade soft toys are great for these purposes and help protect shops. You can make it possible even from the wear trimming of dense fabric or old things. Be sure to use material for packing. Below is a step-by-step instruction of such a device.
- First of all, it is necessary to make the pattern of the desired product. A special popularity among pets use toys in the form of bones, but can not be limited to this.
- Then make marking on the fabric. To do this, circle the sample and leave 1-1.5 cm of stacks on the seams. You can cut two parts of the toy at once. If there are additional complex details, then secure them with pins.
- Then it is necessary to sew two parts from the wrong side, leaving the filler hole.
- Remove the workpiece on the front side and score.
- Slightly sew the edges of the opening inside and sew.
It is worth carefully treating the choice of filler. For example, instead of the foam rubber, it is better to take pieces of cotton fabric - in case of rupture, the dog does not eat harmful material. For puppies it is worth using dry rice as a filler.
What makes it necessary for the development of intelligence?
Homemade toys can be not only fun, but also smart. Interactive products develop intuition and smelting. Playing with a dog in such games is very interesting - non-standard tasks solutions often affect the owners. The toys are short-lived, but all the details in them can be changed along the wear.
Required materials for manufacture:
- Plastic and polypropylene pipes with plugs;
- Bruks of wood;
- Tennis balls;
- dense fabric;
- Rings and metal pins;
- Dense cardboard boxes;
- Dog delicacies.
A simple and interesting option involves the use of a box or a bucket of plastic. Inside it is necessary to put minced items, such as rolled socks, rubber toys, circles of paper. Between things you can scatter dry large granules of feed. The essence of the game is to find all pieces of treats. As a result, the room will be a mess, but the dog will be delighted.
For a small dog is suitable entertainment in the form of a labyrinth. Pipes can be twisted from cardboard or boxes with cropped bottom. More laborious - sew a product from dense synthetics. In the latter case, you need to insert metal hoops to maintain the form.
The game is to search for delicacies that can be poured along the path to the floor or in the side pockets.
An excellent option for animals that are long in the closed space. Be sure to participate in the host in the game. The labyrinth is great for training.
A simple toy with delicacies can be made of a simple tennis ball. Two longitudinal cuts of the cross will be made, and add dry granules inside. The duration of the game directly depends on the size of the opening. In the process of kicking and throwing the goer of the delicacy will be saturated.
To complicate the task you can hang the ball on a rope or rubber band. The dog will have to play more actively, because to get a delicacy only in the jump.
The game is suitable for active little dogs and all breeds in the adolescence. Hang the toy is not very high so that the pet does not lose interest.
Large and active pets will appreciate a more complex game of plastic bottles. It is necessary to remove the lid and put inward the delicacy. Choose granules of this size and shape so that they do not quickly fall out. The process of manufacturing the game is presented below.
- First of all, you need to make a bottle stand. From a thick metal rod collect two supports and a crossbar. The design should be stable and durable.
- The bottom of the bottles need to pierce the spin and ride the pin. 3-4 bottles are enough at some distance from each other.
Dog in the course of the game will learn how to coordinate its actions. Survective animals reveal the secret after 15-20 minutes.
It is noteworthy that the dog will not be able to spray a bottle, which means that such a design will not harm. Strongly active shaking prevents the fallout of delicacies, what a pet will need to guess.
For an adult dog, you can make an interactive puzzle made of metallic form for muffins and tennis balls. Spread the treats and cover the balls. The pet should alternately take obstacles from the form and find delicacy. Breeds with narrow and long muzzles will fulfill the rules of the game with great comfort.
Active dog such a game will not be interesting. A pet will simply turn the form for the muffins and eat a delicacy that will be released at the same time. If you wish, you can double-sided scotch and fix the game on the floor.
When choosing an intellectual game, it is worth considering the peculiarities of a pet, so that he is interested.
Production of toys for large dogs
For large domestic pets need special toys. And it's not just in size, but also in strength. Use secure materials so that the dog does not hurt and did not choose when the product breakdown. You can give a PSU to the confusion of a homemade soft toy or the ball, which is enough for a couple of days. It is worth remembering that any game should not only cheer, but also to develop a dog.
If the pet loves to gnaw and twist, then he needs a wear-resistant toy. Such options should be made from pieces of polypropylene pipes with plugs. It is enough to make a hole in the body tube and put dry treats there. As a result of the game of goodies will be gradually falling out.
The game is suitable for dogs that stay alone for a long time.
A more complex and interesting option is the manufacture of a rope for dragging. To do this, cook three tennis balls and a long scarf. Alternatively, you can use several woolen flaps or scarves, which should be copped together. Step-by-step production:
- Tie a reliable knot at one end of the scarf;
- disguise the balls in the folds of the fabric;
- Advanced knots for fixing balls;
- Last ball place closer to the second edge of the scarf.
The game involves the direct participation of the owner. It will take a lot of free space so that the dog is convenient to show their capabilities.
This is a great idea for a walk. The game suits the owners of several pets of about the same size. You can teach them to drag the rope together.
Interesting toy options will not only be a good entertainment for the dog, but also a kind of decoration. In the manufacture of toys, you can use tissue decorative elements or beautiful fabric - the product will become unusual. Pretty curious looks the ball from a thick rope. This toy cannot be broken or spoiled. If the rope ball loses the form, then it is quite simple to bind the design.
If the owner is ready for noisy games, then you can make an unusual flap. For the manufacture, we need 2 plastic jars from under vitamins, durable cords or ropes, 4 plastic covers from bottles. As instruments, you will need scissors and shine to do the holes. Clapperia do according to the instructions shown below.
- On the top and bottom of the cans you need to make holes opposite each other. The diameter must correspond to the size of the cord.
- The rope or cord itself must be cut into 4 equal parts.
- Schedule into each lid one piece of the cord and tie the knot at the end.
- The second end of the rope must be done in the bottom of the plastic banks. It is important to tie a strong knot.
- Two banks need to be glued together or connect the same cord.
During the game, all the details will rattle and noise. In a special delight of such entertainment there will be small dogs. If you wish, you can sell more cords in the bottom of the bank. Small pigtails can be fixed as decorations.
There is a lot of time for the manufacture of toys, however, it is quite long.
For a small dog, you can make a harness from pruning old T-shirts. Cut about 10 lanes of the same size. All the ends on the one hand tie in a large knot. Keep the bonded tips with one hand, and the other twist the flap. The free part knobs the same node.
If you wish, all toys can be painted. It is important to use only food pigments so as not to poison the dog. For an interactive game it is worth using not only tennis, but also rubber balls. A bone or rope can not only weave, but also to tie. It is better to use wool tight thread for this.

Intellectual development of dogs
Intelligent games for dogs can be used in any pet store, so do it yourself
Homemade toys are capable not only to entertain, but also to develop pets, training the intelligence, instilling new useful skills. It is worth considering that intelligent toys like not all animals. They are suitable for dogs forced to spend a lot of time alone, representatives of service or decorative rocks.
The basic principle of intellectual toys is to stimulate the promotion of the pet, to force it to find nontrivial moves and solutions. In the process of the game, the dog should find hidden delicacies that will be promoted for a well-traveled quest. Such toys are short-lived, but cheaps and easy to manufacture, so there will be no problems with the replacement of parts.
For the manufacture of crafts will be needed:
- plastic bottles;
- polypropylene pipes with plugs;
- wooden bars;
- Tennis balls;
- synthetic fabric;
- Metal pins and rings;
- Durable cardboard boxes;
- Dry food with large granules or other ready-made delicacies.
The easiest version of the educational toy is a common plastic bucket or box. It is filled with various objects: balls, rubber toys, fresh socks, bushings from under the rolls of toilet paper and even fresh in a lump of wrapper paper. Between objects scatter pieces of feed. The task of the dog is to find all the delicacies, gradually taking out the items from the tank. Minus games - mess in the room. But it is compensated by delight of the pet with every delicious granule found. When the game is over, the scattered items can be collected, and after a while again offer the dog.
A more complex toy suitable for small dogs is a labyrinth. The pipe can be glued from the cardboard, assemble from the boxes with a pre-cut bottom. A more durable option is to sew a tube of durable synthetic tissue. So that it holds the shape, thin metal hoops of the desired diameter inserted into the stitching scenes.
Play with the labyrinth is easy and interesting. Parehomas can be laid out in the side pockets so that the dog can easily be able to get them in the pipe. Simplified option - pour a bit of feed at the end of the labyrinth. The toy is great for training and very much like pets forced a long time to carry out in a closed room. However, playing a maze alone is not interesting, such fun requires the presence of the owner.
Non-flat and moral toy is done on the basis of a regular tennis ball. Such entertainment is perfect for pets who love to nibble objects, as well as for growing puppies. Make a toy just. The tennis ball is cut off crosswise, inwards are inserted and offered by a dog. The pet will try to get delicious pieces, at the same time pin and throwing the ball. The smaller the hole, the longer the game lasts.
The fastest and simple in the manufacture of a toy for pets - from a tennis ball
You can complicate the task, hiding the ball on the rope or gum. The dog will be forced to bounce, trying to grab the fascinated ball, grab his paws, press to the wall and release again. Such games are particularly like adolescent puppies and representatives of small hyperactive breeds: terriers, cocker spaniels, taxam. For the game to become more interesting, the ball should be suspended not too high, otherwise the dog will not be able to get a delicacy.
Dogs preferring toys, need more durable products. They can be made of segments of polypropylene pipes.
- Ends are tightly covered with plugs, for greater reliability, they can be fixed with non-toxic universal glue.
- In the middle, a small hole is cut, several granules of dry feed are inserted inside. Overting and throwing up the toy, the pet should get to the delicacy. Since the hole is small, the ps will have to tinker.
Such a toy is an excellent option for large dogs, locked houses waiting for the owner. If the animal is shaking the tube, it needs to be replaced immediately to avoid injuries.
Large, active dogs will suit the original device collected from plastic bottles. They remove plastic covers, a little feed is poured inside. It is better to choose large granules of the wrong shape so that they do not fall out of the hole too quickly.
Game with plastic bottles will suit active and clever pets
- The most difficult part of the work is to make a bottle stand. The design consists of a wide base, two supports and a transverse crossbar made of a thick metal rod. It is important to make the design sustainable and durable so that it does not turn over during the game.
- In the middle of each bottle, cross-cutting holes are pierced, after which the tanks are riveted on the pin. It is enough to strengthen 3-4 bottles, they should not feel tight towards each other. Rotating freely suspended containers, the dog will pour out a bit of feed, but too active shaking will not give a delicacy to fall ahead of time.
Pet task - learn how to coordinate your actions. Surveral animals understand the principle of the toy after a quarter of an hour, less developed pets will need more time. But even the most stupid puppy will be delighted to twist the bottles, wondering the noise of the granules and rapidly rejoicing every felling piece. Additional plus - freely fixed plastic containers cannot be sprinkled, and therefore the dog will not be able to bother with sharp fragments.
Another intellectual game that does not require additional preparations for the owner - puzzle with tennis balls
Very simple fun for adult PSA - puzzle made of tennis balls and metal form for muffins. In the holes of a large rectangular shape lay down delicacies, covering them with balls. Then the design is offered a dog. Her task is to turn the balls alternately and push them out of the holes, getting to delicious incentives. With the task, pets with narrow long muzzles are coping faster: setters, greyhound, Scottish and German shepherds. For too active and mobile dog, such a toy will not suit - the dog will simply turn the design. If you wish, it can be fixed on the floor, sticking the bilateral scotch strip.
Homemade toys - pleasure not only for the dog, but also for the owner. Inventing new entertainment, you can better understand the nature and addiction of the pet, to develop its best data, correct the behavior. To the toys are not bored, they must be changed more often, alternating simple carrying items and more complex intellectual structures.Rate article:

Today we will make toys for dogs with your own hands. I think this topic will be very relevant, especially for the owners of Jack Russell Terriers, which are famous for their skill literally over a few seconds to turn a new toy into a disjacious rag.
You can buy a new ignition every day to buy this tolete "monsters". And well, if such entertainer is getting, which will serve a day or two. It will be a huge achievement. But buy toys for your beloved bolds every day is very consistent. After all, all toys for dogs stand oh as notice.
Therefore, we will tell us with our bold jelly and show a few options for how to make a toy for a dog from girlfriend.
Rope from thread
For this toy, we will take cotton threads of different colors (Fig. 1). So the toy will look more interesting.
For a 40 cm long routine, we need to weave (combined) a sufficiently thick strand from the threads. Which thickness will be the rope depends on the size of your dog. Our strand will be thick about two fingers.
You can make one long strand of about 1.5 m or two strands of 70-80 cm. We will make one long strand.
Exactly in the middle fixed (wear) the resulting strand on some hook or door handle. Well, or you can ask the assistant to hold the strand while you will weave the rope.
We take one straight into each hand and start twisting them left (Fig. 3).
Then, on top we enter the left strand on the right (Fig. 4). Be sure to fix strands tightly so that they are not broken.
Next, we continue in the same direction: I spin the strands to the left, and just also put the left strand on the right. And so weave to the very end.
From one and on the other side of the rope tie the node. Try to tie it as hard as possible. Miffinate the ends of the resulting "brushes".
Here is such a wonderful rope for a dog we turned out. If you want to tie an additional nodule in the middle, then strand from the thread will initially need to do a little longer.
Movement from T-shirts
For this toy we take three old T-shirts. Better, if T-shirts are different colors. So the pigtail will be more interesting and brighter.
Cut the sleeves and neck of T-shirts (Fig. 2). We get three multi-colored rectangles, each of which consists of the transfer and back of the T-shirt.
We turn each rectangle in the "tube" (Fig. 3). If you have a small dog, you can only take one half (before or back). And if the dog is large, you can turn the tube from both parts.
We cut off from one of the T-shirts two small ropes. One of them firmly link all three tubes together (Fig. 4).
We start wearing a pigtail.
When the pigtail is practically ready, we associate the end of the second rope and pour with scissors.
Medusa from T-shirts
For the manufacture of jellyfish, we will need two multi-colored or one color T-shirt, a ball deodorant or any small ball (Fig. 1).
If you took a deodorant, get the ball from it (Fig. 2). Do not forget to rinse the ball from deodorant residues.
From the bottom of the T-shirt, we cut a ring with a width of about 10 cm (Fig. 3-4).
All we need three such rag rings.
On the one hand, cut these rings so that we get stripes.
The resulting three stripes we fold on top of each other (Fig. 1-2). In the center of the intersection of the tissue strips, put the ball or ball (Fig. 3). Wrap all strips around the ball (ball) and bandage separately cut by rope (Fig. 4).
We had a jellyfish with a head and six "tentacles." Of these, we will weave two dense pigtails (Fig. 2). Mine mappings fix tougy nodes.
Here is such a wonderful toy for a pet can be made with your own hands.
Gryzlik gladly spreads with the "maritime" monster.
The bone can be sewed absolutely from any fabric. Take a denim fabric. It is dense enough and durable. And even such a tobastic, like Jack Russell Terrier, will not be on the teeth, I hope.
In addition to the denim, you will need a synthetic tube. We make a pattern from paper and transfer to the fabric (Fig. 1). Cut the two identical tissue parts, leaving 1 cm for points on the seams (Fig. 2).
We sew from the wrong side two bone details between themselves throughout the perimeter, as shown by the red line in the figure below. We leave only a small hole for turning (shown by the red arrow).
In the same hole we will fill the synthetic procession. You are lounge, and ... the bone is ready.
And for the manufacture of such a cute striped monster, you will need: bright striped sock with fingers, syntheps and two colored buttons.
From both sides, cut the sock as shown in the figure below.
From the wrong side we flash the edge, leaving only a hole for stinging by syntheps, as shown by the red arrow in the figure below. We feed the toy with a synthet board, sewing a hole and sew pools and buttons. Montstric ready.
For the manufacture of such a wicker ring, you will need four strips from the fleece. The width of the strips is about 8 cm, and about 1 meter length.
We fold all the strips together and tie a nodule.
We begin to weave the ring. We lay down strips in different directions so that the cross and the knot came to be in the middle (Fig. 1).
Watch in different directions and put the light strips from above on blue, as shown in Fig. 2. Well, then, then every blue strip is wrapped and stretching into a loop from a white strip (Fig. 3-4).
We start tightening all the strips into the nodule, gradually stretching each edge each other.
We continue to touch further.
Unleash the nodules that we did at the very beginning. Here is such a rope must turn out.
We connect the ends together so that it turns out the ring.
Further gradually we associate all the strips among themselves and tighten it tightly so that then they do not unleal.
Miffy the ends and rings are ready.
Wicker rope with ball
For making toys, we take a ball with a finished hole (Fig. 1). From the fleece, we cut three strips with a width of 7-8 cm. The length of each strip should be about 1.5 meters (Fig. 2).
Take the ball and make all the strips in it so that the ball is exactly in the middle (Fig. 3). From both sides, short-lived pigtails are turning, about 10 cm (Fig. 4).
Further we connect these two pigtails into one and continue to determine one, thicker braid (Fig. 1-2). Fix the end of the braid to the tight node (Fig. 3) and cut the uneven edges (Fig. 4).
We take an empty plastic bottle with a lid. The size of the bottle depends on the size of your wool friend. If Barbos is large, then the bottle can be taken more. The bottle must be necessarily dry.
We also need a little any cereals (I took rice) and a whole tight sock.
I fall asleep in a bottle of some cereals and close the lid tightly. You don't need to write a lot of cereals, otherwise there will be no such a ringing noise that all dogs like that.
We stick a bottle in a sock, and tie a nodule. Toy is ready.
Today, Jack and I have told and showed how you can make a toy for a dog with your own hands, practically from the girlfriend, while spending the minimum amount of tools and time.

The dog is a fairly vigorous and movable animal that needs not only in regular walks, but also in cooperation with the owner. For this, it is not necessary to go to pet stores and acquire expensive goods, because to make toys for dogs with their own hands very simple.
Rope for active games
One of the most popular games is to drag the rope. Weave the rope for a small dog can be made of old magicians, a terry robe or any other fabrics. To the toy turns out more attractive, the materials of various shades should be used.
For weaving, it will be necessary:
At first, it is necessary to cut the clothes on 4 the same strips of approximately 10 cm wide and 1 m long. After that, the strips must be stretched in different directions so that they become longer and get a little in the tube. It is important not to overdo it in order not to break them. In addition, the material that is easy to break should not be used to create a toy. It is better to choose something more elastic.
Then the strips are tied on the nodule, retreating from the end to 7-10 cm so that the rope is convenient to keep in hand. Relying in photo 4 It is necessary to decompose the fabric in the shape of a cross. You can do work at home at the desktop and outdoors, clinging the nodes between the knees.
At the next stage, it is necessary to complete the right lane to the left, and the left to the right, on top of the yellow tissue. Thus, the English letter "S" is obtained. Then the lower rope is drawn to the loop on the left above, and the upper on the contrary, the right bottom loop. There should be the same letter, only sideways.
After that, it should be carefully tightened with a loop, adjusting them to formed a neat square in the center. Next, you need to repeat actions with photo 5, 6 and 7 until the desired length of the toy is scored.
A total of 10-15 minutes takes such work. This weaving technique allows you to get a beautiful band diagonally. It is worth noting that the varieties of the ornament are very many and everyone has its own weaving method. To create a large dog toy, it is recommended to use a cable rope, as it will break the cloths very quickly. That's all. It's time to offer a pet to play.
The next master class will help make a toy for a dog so that she can play independently when the owner has no time and the opportunity to pay due attention to the pet.
To create such a pretty candy, you will need:
- any tissue (in this case, a shirt is used);
- plastic bottle;
- several large beads;
- any rope or gum;
First, you should fall asleep beads in a bottle and tighten with a lid. They can be replaced with small pebbles or dry food. The latter will give a toy smell that will not leave the dog indifferent. Do not pour a lot of beads in a bottle, as it will grow hard and distract residents of the house from work.
Then you need to measure how much tissue is required to wrap the bottle into it and cut off everything too much. From one shirt you can make 2-3 candies and give each favorite if there are several of them in the house.
After that, the bottle wrap in the segment of the fabric and the tails on the bow tie to the bow, fixing it firmly inside.
It is not recommended to make large bows, as the dog can bother them and the toy will come into disrepair. Long tips can be easily trimmed with scissors. Such candy will have to taste for small and medium-sized dogs. When holes will appear in the bottle, it will quickly lose the form and it is better to replace it. On this master class is over.
It is worth considering another option to create a plastic bottle toys in a case in the form of an appetizing bone.
To create it will be necessary:
- Any fabric (in this case, fleece);
- Empty plastic bottle;
- Sewing supplies.
Initially, sew case. It can be sewed on a typewriter or manually. Before proceeding with work, you need to prepare templates. They can be drawn on cardboard from hand, or print any of the Internet. In photo 17, it is shown from what details a cover consists.
When the pattern for dog toys is ready, it is recommended to grab the elements between themselves using a pin. The product will be more accurate if the fabric does not shift to the side. The template marked the fold line of one of the billets. It should be wrapped before this line and grab pins as shown in photo 18.
Then the parts are shot on the typewriter and gently turn out. It is important when sewing to save the rounded shape of the bone and in no case to sew the product in the center, because the bottle will be placed there in the future.
Initially, it is shoved into a deep pocket, and after hiding the base of the bottle under little. At will, the corners of the bones are filled with trimming of the fleece or syntheps, and the smell feed is poured inside. Toy is ready.
An alternative toy can be a homemade toy octopus. In it, the dog will be able to play both independently and with the owner. In addition, several animals will be able to compete in tugging toys.
To create it will be necessary:
- Old T-shirt;
- Any ball.
It is recommended to use a rubber ball with a squeezing, as the dogs like meals, but a tennis ball or another size is also suitable.
Initially, you should cut the T-shirt on the bands of equal width, relying on photo 23.
Then the sections of the fabric are put crosswise, placing the ball in the center. It is wrapped in the obtained strips and tie them to the knot at the very base.
Next, each of the four segments need to cut into three equal parts. It remains only to braid pigtails and the octopus is ready. If you wish, you can take more fabric and make 6 or 8 sucks.
The toy is suitable for small dogs and pets of medium sizes.
Options for large dogs
For a large pet, you can make toys for dogs as in photo 29 and 30. They are very similar, but they are doing differently. In the first case, you will need to weave from a solid rope rope. To do this, it is worth using tips from the first master class in this article. Then take a tennis ball, with the help of a knife carefully do a hole in it from two sides and put on the rope, prevailing the node on it.
In the second case, use a wide cable rope. From it it is necessary to weave a small ball. Excess ropes at will, you can cut or leave the ball on a small cutting rope. About how to make a ball from a cable rope will tell the next master class.
To create it will be necessary:
- Thick rope near meter;
- hot or superchalter, to fix the ends;
- Good luck at will.
Initially, the rope needs to be wounded on the hand as shown in the photo 31. It is important that the formed loops were the same.
Then you should neatly remove the loop with your hands, holding the rope to save the shape. Next, the long end of the rope is 3-4 times wind the workpiece, forming a future ball.
After that, the end of the rope is drawn through the upper loops, thereby fixing them, and then stretch again through the lower.
At the end of the loop neatly tighten, forming a ball. The tip of the rope is hiding inside by fixing it on glue. On this toy for Pesika is ready.
Fleece Bone for Puppies
Not only adult dogs, but the puppies love to play very much. For the baby, you can make a pretty fleece bone, decoring it with various stripes or the initials of the pet.
For sewing it will be necessary:
- Fleece of two or three shades at will;
- Sinytender as filler;
- Sewing supplies.
At the first stage, make a pattern of soft toys for the dog. The template in the shape of a bone can be found and download from the Internet or draw from hand on a sheet of cardboard, and then apply to the main material and carefully cut. Total need two details.
Then, with the help of a sewing machine to billets, various elements are sewn. It can be geometric shapes, initials or any other patterns. In the absence of machines, they can be sewn manually or put on hot glue, apply it to the very edges of the elements. You can also use fabric with ready-made ornament.
It is not recommended to highly retreat from the edge of the figures. Locating edges will give a toy untidy look. So that the seams do not get into the eyes, it is worth picking a thread into the tone of the fleece. When manually, it is important to make small stitches, without departing too far.
After that, the billets are applied to each other with decorated sides inwards and shivered on a typewriter. It is necessary to leave the hole about 3-4 cm in the center of the bone, so that it can be turned it out and fill it with Sintec.
It is not recommended to fill in a bone with cotton, as it quickly puts in lumps, but the product is packed with Sintepona, you can easily wash without any problems. However, you should not clog the toy too tight. It must save its air texture.
Upon completion of all works, you can hand a gift puppy. He will be very happy and can not only play, but also sleep on such a comfortable bone. It is important not to leave it for a long time unattended, since the dog can break the toy, and there is her filler to her extremely not recommended.
If you wish, you can buy many wonderful toys in the pet store, but the pet will be nice to have at least one, made by the hands of his owner, because in this thing he invested the whole soul and took into account all the preferences of the dog.
The game for dog is important. And those owners of pets who want to create a good life to their favorite, always try to provide him with a sufficient number of interesting and varied toys.

Value Games for Dog Training
Dogs are social animals, they love to communicate not only with a person, but with their relatives. And not just communicate, but play and frolic. The opportunity to run with himself a similar friend who is also not averse to play - one of the best motivations for the dog. Interestingly, in general, most animals, the peak of gaming activity falls for a period of youth. And the motivation to play the dog is saved throughout life, although it is formed in puppy age.
Any game is huge benefit to the dog, regardless of its age. If an adult pet is an opportunity to release steam and spend mental energy, then for a puppy it is a study of the world, the possibility of socialization, the development of useful skills, preparation for training, etc. So the game for the dog is far from aimless occupation.
On a note ! There is a hypothesis that in the wild the game serves as a peculiar method of preparing for adulthood, develops the abilities that will be useful during hunting, trains reflexes, helps learn how to communicate to representatives of the view.
For example, a small puppy playing with one-axis, learns to control the strength of the bite. Those puppies, which early from the mother, do not know how to do this, as they could not acquire this skill. The kid during the game learns to defend its borders and appreciate the strangers. In dogs, actively playing, well-developed coordination of movements, and the brain works more actively than those who spend their lives passively.
Moreover, Game - Excellent Training Tool which the owner of the dog can use to achieve certain goals. For example, a game can become excellent motivation for a dog studying something new. In some cases, it is able to replace even such an award as delicacy. Also, during the game, the dog can be taught holding an excerpt, control of its excitement, perform certain actions on the team and so on.
On a note ! Cynologists note that the dog after the game is much better perceived any teams and is more willing.
The game is also able to demonstrate the health status of the dog. So, an animal that feels bad, refuses to play even a favorite toy. And if the dog has become a low-active in games or plays rarely, it is already a reason to refer to the veterinarian.

How to play with a dog?
It is not necessary to play with the dog as, but observing some simple rules, since the wrong game can lead to unwanted behavior in the future. For example, you decide to play with your old slippers with your old slippers, after which the puppy will decide that you can play any slippers, and your new spoil. Therefore, as soon as the baby appeared in the house, you need to immediately take care of the selection of toys for him.
At a time when the puppy plays, it should be carefully followed by the gameplay. In some cases, it is necessary to even interfere in order to correct its behavior: for example, at a time when the puppy actively begins to be interested in the plinth or wallpaper instead of his toy. But be sure to praise him when he plays what it is possible. The kid must receive a positive reinforcement of his actions. Encourage them every way. During reliating items, it is not necessary to make excessive efforts - you can injure your animal's teeth, especially if we are talking about a puppy or a small dog. Observe the measure in all your actions.
Council ! So that the dog does not lose interest in toys, remove those with her sight that she stopped playing, and hide. And those who play with it only you are also better to clean out of free access. So the game motivation in the dog will only grow.
And be sure to play where it is safe, in a quiet place, where you and the dog are comfortable. Remember - the game should bring positive emotions and you, and a dog. And toys are better to use only those that will not harm the animal. And to make such best do it yourself.
