Your pup go through toys like a starving Velociraptor? Here are a few ideas to make some toys out of items you already have around your home!
**As is the case with any toy, think of your pup’s safety first. Supervise your dog when they’re playing with all toys and regularly inspect them for damage. Be sure to get rid of any toys that are falling apart– you don’t want your four-legged love to swallow anything harmful! #ruv Main image from Tattle Tails. : )
