DIY T-Shirt Dog Toy For Summer With My Best Girl

Summer has always been my favorite season. There is just something about the sun shining, the smell of freshly cut grass, and tan lines. It is heavenly! Jenny is a girl after my own heart because Summer is her favorite season as well. This pup is all about the sun! We could both sit on the lawn together basking in the sunshine for hours and be perfectly content- and we often do! 

With Summer on the way and so many evenings with my best girl on the horizon, I thought I would share a quick DIY for a t-shirt dog toy. Jenny likes to tear her toys to shreds, so it's hard to stomach spending $10+ on a cute dog toy that's going to become a pile of white fluff in a matter of .5 seconds. This tug toy is made with an old t-shirt and Jenny thinks it's the greatest thing since peanut butter. Winning!


This T-Shirt tug toy is so incredibly simple. All you need is an old t-shirt and a pair of scissors! I grabbed a tank top I have a duplicate of and got to work! When I laid out my supplies, a tennis ball somehow got thrown in the mix. I wonder who could have put it there...

First, lay your t-shirt out flat and cut 1-inch wide strips to the length of the shirt. No need to get out the ruler- just eyeball it! You want the lengths to be somewhat even, but your pup isn't looking for perfection on this one.

Lay out all of your strips and separate them into 3 equal piles. Again, just eyeball it. Simplicity is the name of the game! Reserve 2 strips for tying at the end.


Secure all three piles together at the top with one of the strips you set aside and begin braiding. Braid to the end, and tie off with the remaining strip. That's it! Your dog toy is ready to be used by your favorite furry companion!




This toy has held up so well amidst Jenny's best efforts to completely rip it to shreds. Did I mention this toy was made using an old t-shirt and completely free? Because that little fact bears repeating. Free, yall!

In addition to long afternoons of sunning ourselves and playing with her new t-shirt tug toy, we will also be delighting in many a dinner out on the lawn. Those warm summer nights just have to be enjoyed, and what better way for a pup to enjoy them than with a little kibble?

I'll be treating Jenny to Purina® Pro Plan® Savor® Dog Food to give her the nutrition she needs to be at her absolute best. Purina Pro Plan Savor is on the menu for its high quality ingredients and optimal levels of protein and fat to help her maintain her most ideal body condition. That's why I like it, at least. She just thinks it tastes good. Works for me!


To create memorable mealtime moments with your pup this Summer, head to PetSmart and pick up a bag of Purina Pro Plan Savor today. And great news- PetSmart has a promo going on from 5/31-7/15! Spend $15 on any Purina Pro Plan product and save $15 on your next purchase of 10.5 lbs. or larger Purina Pro Plan Dry Cat or Dog Food or Litter by 7/31.
