Dogs are important members of the family and there is no better feeling than being able to make a beloved family member smile with the gift of a fun new toy to play with!

We’ve got some fantastic DIY dog toy solutions that can be made for next to nothing, using just the spare items and old parts you can find lying around your home.

Will you be trying out one of these fantastic DIY dog toy ideas? If you do, take a picture of your dog next to their new favourite toy or snap a picture of them in action then share it with us on our social media. We love seeing your happy pet pictures!
Make sure that you supervise pets when playing with toys, as you would children, to prevent any accidents happening, particularly if you have a large dog who is stronger than they realise! Before making or using any home goods for DIY dog toy creation, first double check to ensure all choking hazards are removed and (where applicable) you have thoroughly cleaned the item in hot soapy water to remove any residual germs and bacteria that could affect your happy, healthy pet!
