A happy Basset Hound lies in the grass after playing with their DIY denim dog toy.

DIY Denim Dog Toy

Does your dog’s toy basket need an update? Here’s the perfect tug toy for your pooch to chew and play fetch with for hours - all you need is a pair of old denim jeans.


  • An old pair of jeans
  • Scissors


  • Cut off one leg from an old pair of jeans.
  • Cut the leg into two strips.
  • Place the strips on top of each other to form a cross.
  • Fold the vertical strip around the horizontal strip.
  • Pass the horizontal strip over then under the vertical strip.
  • Pull the strips tight to secure a knot.
  • Repeat until the denim ball is your preferred size.
  • Ready to play!
