My preferred material for making tug toys is polar fleece with the exception of occasional experiments. It is economical, non-fraying, colourfast, and can be washed with a nice, thick, strong but gentle detergent. It is also very easy to work with.
I have used it to make a variety of things, including a pair of mittens, a t-shirt and a scarf, as well as a number of other things.
The only thing I don’t like about it is that it can be a little slippery when wet, but this is easily remedied by using a thin layer of water-based lubricant (such as Vaseline) on the inside of your hands before you start working with it. This will help to keep it from slipping out of the hands and onto the work surface.
If you are using it for something other than a toy, you will need to be careful not to get any of it on your skin, or else you may end up with some nasty burns.

How do you make a bungee dog toy?
Make the holes in the milk jug bigger than her kibble so that the pieces can fall through. If you want to tie the jug to the top of her cage, you need to fill it with kibble and then loop a length of bungee through the jug’s handle. If you have a large cage, you may want to make a second cage for her to use as a playpen.
You can make one by cutting a piece of plywood to fit the size of your cage and adding a few inches of PVC pipe to hold it in place. If you don’t have the time or patience to do this yourself, a friend or family member can do it for you.
