Does Fido have a habit of going through toys like there is no tomorrow? If so, here is an easy way to make him a toy simply using your old socks.
First, gather up 5 or 6 holey or mismatched socks. Select the largest sock (one without holes or with only tiny holes) and set it aside. Roll up the remaining socks on balls, then insert them one at a time into the larger sock. Tie a knot at the end, and you have an instant tug of war toy!
An alternate way to make this, select a long sock (such as a larger wooly work sock or a knee sock, and rolling up the other socks into balls. Insert one sock into the larger sock and tie a knot as close to the balled sock as possible. Then insert another sock above the knot and tie a second knot above the second ball sock. Continue until you use up the rolled socks or you don’t have any more room at the top of the sock for more balled socks.
