Activity description
We love buying new toys for our dogs. They get so excited and it makes us happy to see them enjoying their toys. We wish that we could buy them all the toys in the world, but toys can be expensive. Even if you buy the inexpensive options, the price can add up. This is especially disheartening when they have destructive tendencies. We don't mind spending money on our dogs, but when the toys last as long as the car ride home, it starts to get a little old. There is nothing wrong with building your own toys, and sometimes it can be more fun. Here is an example of a simple yet effective DIY toy.
Step
1
The bottle
Take a small plastic bottle. A cool drink bottle should work just fine, but don't use something that is too big. That won't be much fun for your dog. Before you put the lid on, squeeze the sides then put the lid on. This will make sure that the bottle doesn't break and make a nice sound that your dog will love.
Step
2
The sock
Choose an old fluffy sock. We all have those socks at the back of our drawers that haven't been worn in a while and lost it's match a few years ago. If your dog has a problem with chewing up clothes, then choose something that won't encourage this bad habit. Put the bottle in and tie the end.
Step
3
The fun
From your dog's reaction, you'll wonder why you ever paid money for expensive yet breakable toys. They won't be able to get enough of their new indestructible toy. Every now and then you will have to replace the fabric, but otherwise, it should hold up very nicely.

Activity description
Adventure is a very important part of life, as we have already seen. Sometimes you don't need to do very much to have an adventure, but you always need to take your dog with you. A road trip is an example of a simple, yet effective adventure. There is something about going out onto the open road and driving that makes us excited. Thankfully, dogs feel the same way. If it is time to have an adventure, then it might be time for a road trip. Follow the simple steps below to find yourself on an epic road trip adventure with your beloved dog.
Step
1
Create a spot
Your dog needs a spot. This is where they will sit and observe and have fun. It needs to be near a window and you need to put something over the seat. Mostly for their protection, since the seats might get hot or they will want to take a nap with their favorite blanket.
Step
2
Feed and water them
If your dog starts getting unhappy, it is time to give them a treat or for a water stop. On that note, make sure to stop frequently so that they can stretch their legs and use the bathroom. Trust us, this is a vital step.
Step
3
Have FUN
Put the music on loud, sing along, bond with your dog and have a wonderful time. Remember that the journey is a big part of the adventure, so it might as well be a blast.
