As humankind’s most loyal and steadfast friend, dogs share many qualities with people. Both understand moods of those around them, both enjoy sleeping on the bed, and both dogs and people get into trouble when they’re bored. With a couple old t-shirts and a paws in your day, you can make a quick and easy toy to prevent that mischievous boredom in your canine companion. Who knows? Your pooch might find your handmade creation quite… fetching.
This is a great list of homemade dog toy projects, and they range from easy to more difficult. I, personally, wouldn't make anything out of socks, so that your own socks never get confused for a toy, but there are many other great ideas here.
