These easy to make colorful rope toys are great for any size dog.

"Y" SHAPED DOG TUG & TOSS TOYProject Cost $1.68
(100' of rope at $7.00 = $0.07 a foot; Project 24' x $0.07 = $1.68)

Check out my basic version of this toy at Dog Toys for Heavy Chewers

If you are having trouble tying the knot see my video BASIC KNOT VIDEO

(If you are concerned with your dog ingesting the nylon rope, natural 3/8" jute rope can be used instead)

Nice project, can you please tell me what measure is 1/8", I'm not sure what unit that is, if you'd please say it in meters I'd be very glad, thanks
1/8 inch = 3.17mm

Great job, I guess if you add more groups of four you could end up with three dimensional shapes. Good instructable too.
This is great! I can't wait to make one. Where do you get your rope from for $7? Thanks!!!

Big Lots or Harbor Freight Tools usually have the best price in my area.

Cool toy!!!

I'm not seeing how you finished the ends. I see the cut pieces, warm them up with lighter, but I don't see how you hide the ends so they stay in place. What am I missing? Thanks for your help!

It gets a little tricky, especially if the ropes are getting really short. My suggestion is to allow a little additional length to each rope and as you start to finish up the toy, loosen the knots slightly. This will help as you weave the rope "tails" back thru the knot. Needle nose pliers or a heavy set of hemostats really help finish it off. I usually fish the rope back into the the knot a least a couple of times. Look for the outside loop of the knot and feed the rope thru it, then I usually turn the toy and do the same thing again. Hope this helps you out.
Wonderful :)
