Dog Toy

Dog Toy

As much as Dobermans chew through toys I needed to find a cheaper toy. So I made braided tug of war toys!

I purchased two kinds of fleece - a plain one and a bright colored. 

Then I cut the fleece into 1.5 - 2 inch strips and tied one of each color together with a square knot (right over left, left over right; left over right, right over left) in about 1 inch off center. The knot process will leave the two sides equal.

Then take the right strand in your right hand and weave over the second, under the third, over the fourth. The second strand is now the first so take it and weave across like the last.

Continue until you are 4 - 6 inches from the bottom.  Tie two more square knots to tie off the bottom. Leave the last strips loose.
Tickle the dogs nose with the loose ends and let them play tug of war.
Sorry the dog pictures are blurry...but they were moving too fast for this poor phone.

  1. The pictures didn't post in the right order. I will try to correct it when I have computer time next.
