Step 1: The Sock Ball's Inners

1. 3 socks.
2. A tennis ball.
3. Dog treat, optional.

Step 2: Putting It Together

First, shove the tennis ball into the first sock. Then shove that into another sock, leavin gboth ends touching, like in the picture. Shove the tennis ball into the sock necks, making it a weird looking circle. Shove that (I know, theres a lot of shoving) into the last sock.

Step 3: Your Done!

Now, you can play tug-a-war, throw it, or use the optional dog treat, and put it in the neck. I would supervise though, only if you put the treat in there. You don't want them to chew off the neck! But if my dog can get it out, your dog probably can too.

    We made something like this in the Army for beating troublemkaers.

    This is a great idea, very simple and didn't have to buy anything. A great way to reuse unwanted or unmatched socks.

    I made this for my 2 year old Pitbull. At first he didn't want to touch it, I guess he thought, it was just a sock, but once he was given the go ahead, he was all into it.

    We played fetch, we played tug of war, I turned my back and he destroyed it. I didn't really care because I didn't have to come out my wallet and buy him a toy for him to destroy five minutes later. He had so much fun with it, I made him another one.

    Why didn't I think of this, loved it!
