I’m a puppy and love to play. My owner loves to sew, and collect fabric. She made me a dog tug toy, when I need a little something new to play with! Sometimes I just like to sit and chew on them, too.
Alternative: Although this is a great stash-buster project to use us scraps of fabric, you can also make this same dog tug toy from nylon rope, which is very durable. Pick up some rope at your local hardware or home improvement store and start making square knots and dog tug toys!

Check with your local Humane society or dog shelter and see if they’d like some of these toys to entertain their dogs. A great project for a rainy afternoon. They don’t take long to make and can be so much fun for playtime!

Love my new toy! It’s great to play catch or tug-of-war with my owner.
Now it’s time to play!
I like my new tug toy — made from scraps of fabric. You can make it longer by making your strips longer.
Oh, yeah. The knot is nice to chew on!
