oh,my. guess i will be making these for the animal shelter. thank you thank you!!!

what a great idea. Going to make one right now!

This is so smart! My dogs will love this!!!!!

I have been using all my leftover fleece to make a braided pull toy exerciser for my bulldog.

I have been making these for years out of fleece........... dogs love them and they are can be washed and dried many times.............. go very well at craft shows!

I have to make these out of recycled jeans or my dog shreds them in minutes.

Looked really easy but I was wondering how you get the edges of the stips of the plaid shirt to be as even as in the picture without raveling? What other materials could a person use that would be effective?

i have made these for my 3 basset hounds and they love them i made mine useing old t shirts i also tied two or 3 plates around the main boady( so it looked like it had arms and legs ) this is so they could all pull on something have lasted years great make and gental on the dogs mouth

Super! Thanks for the terrific idea!

I've used fleece to make these braided dog toys............and more durable for a big dog...........BUT fantastic ideas these! Dillon's mom (Doberman)

What a great, simple, indestructible idea!

i bet this is very durable

this is very cool and durable i bet :)

Another form of material you can use is fleece. I have used fleece to make the braided dog toys and they are fast, inexpensive toys to sell as fund-raising items for humane organizations. As with any dog toy, you have to watch for loose parts, frayed ends and so forth. This is a great fast toy to make if your dog likes to carry toys around or play tug-o-war.

I tried this with 3 different breed and size dogs. They all loved it but went for the ends to shred them to pieces.

I think that using a flannel shirt would work better than one made of just cotton. I do not think that a shirt made of polyester and cotton would be good to use because it could cut the lips of a dog.

My little shitzu and maltese doggies love this toy. Brilliant idea.
