    A PVC pipe is the main ingredient in this sturdy feeding toy created by Dog Tipper, which aims to keep your pooch busy by making him work for the treats inside. You'll need to be somewhat handy to drill holes into the pipe, which you can do best when the pipe is secured in a vise. Sand the rough edges of your holes with sandpaper and when all of them are smooth, put the pipe into the dishwasher for cleaning. Put PVC caps on each end of the pipe.

    Another great one for tennis balls, especially ones that have lost their bounce. All you need to do is put some treats in the muffin tin (not all the spaces), put the tennis balls over them, and you are done. To make it harder, cut tennis balls in half and place in tin.

    If you sew, you can use your old t-shirts to make your dog a blanket. Simply cut into squares, sew the blocks together and sew onto a piece of fleece or other fabric you have lying around. If you have enough old shirts, you could use them for both sides. Your dog will love that it smells like you.
