I made a dog toy following these instructions and thought I could alter it and make one better suited for my dogs. I have several dachshunds that like to play tug of war. The yarn quickly shredded and my dogs had trouble gripping the loose yarn and knot on the end with their small mouths.
So I added loops on both ends, switched out some of the yarn for more sturdier twine, and made it a bit thinner.
This will take about a half an hour to an hour to finish.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn (any color you like)
Measuring tape or Yard stick
All of this can be bought at most craft stores.
