How To Make Dog Toys:
PADDIO STICKS
You can easily learn how to make dog toys out of sticks and rags! They'll cost younothing except a little time to gather materials and put them together.
Comet enjoys these because they move in unpredictable ways. They can be good temporary chomp toys but do not leave your dog alone with them. Watch carefully tomake sure your dog doesn't swallow the material.
 
ESTIMATED TIME
 
15 to 30 minutes per toy
MATERIALS
 
Colored tape
A large old T-shirt or equivalent
Sticks, 1 /2 to 1 inch (15 to 25mm) in diameter, about a foot long
Note: Green sticks that bend rather than break, are preferable, and crooked sticks rather than totally straight add a little extra fun. If the ends are really pointed, saw them off toblunt them.
 
PADDIO STICK CROSSIE
Comet's got a tight grip on his Crossie!
 
 
INSTRUCTIONSTake two sticks and for each stick do the following:
 
Cut/tear strips about 2 inches (5 cm) wide and as long as possible from the T-shirt(
[If you tear horizontally you'll get the longest pieces
]
Take a strip of rag and lay the stick on it
Wrap lengthwise a couple of times, covering the ends of the stick
Tightly wind the rest of your strip around the stick and wrapping
When that strip ends, start with another, overlapping the ends
Keep on with another strip or two, remembering to wrap tightly
Tuck the last end under previous wraps, using a knife to help
For a decorative touch, apply plastic tape around the ends
When you have both sticks firmly wrapped, lay them crosswise and use anotherstrip of rag to bind them firmly together in the middle
We hope this one showed you it's not difficult to learn how to make homemade dog toys. Are you ready for the next one? 
 The following Triangle toy is similar, only you'll need three sticks. Comet really enjoyschewing on this one because he can hold onto it so well with his paws.
PADDIO STICK TRIANGLE
INSTRUCTIONS
Take three sticks and wrap each of them per the Crossie above
Lay the sticks in a triangle, leaving about 2 inches (5 cm) sticking out at the ends
Wrap each corner firmly, going around and between each stick
To finish off, tie a knot and tuck the ends under a wrap
When you have all three angles done, add tape as desired
Uses:
Play fetch by throwing or rolling along the ground or give to your puppy to chewon (
under supervision only
)
