A homemade water bottle dog toy, perfect for dogs that like crinkly sounds. Just be sure to watch your dog if they're a heavy chewer so they don't eat any of the plastic or swallow the sock :)


  • 1 plastic bottle
  • 1 sock


1. Put a plastic bottle in a sock

2. Tie a knot on the end of it

3. Tie a knot on the other end of the sock

4. Have fun!

Always supervise your dog with their toys, and if a toy becomes damaged or chewed up, take it away from the dog. If your dog is one for swallowing socks, eating plastic or generally eating/swallowing toys, then this toy isn't the right one for them.
