9 Easy Dog DIY Projects for Pet Lovers

No matter what type of dog you have, from the tiniest teacup poodle to the largest great dane, they all deserve to be loved and pampered. Here are a few ideas to get started.

Homemade Ice Pops

What better way to pamper your pet than by offering them an ice cold treat on a hot summer day. Make these fun homemade ice pops for your dog. You’ll want these nylon dog chews to serve as the stick.

Dog Shampoo

If you want a dog shampoo that’s safer than what you find in the store, you can make your own easily with this recipe. The base is a vegetable glycerin.

DIY Rope Toy

Dog toys can get quite expensive depending on how quickly your dog goes through them. Did you know you can make your own rope toy? You’ll want to start with a 1″ thick cotton rope.

Dog Treats

Sure you can buy them from the store, but wouldn’t your dog enjoy homemade dog treats even more? Try these homemade peanut butter bacon dog treats. You’ll want to store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Dog Crate Cover

You may appreciate this one more than your dog. But, why not consider making a DIY dog crate cover. You can choose the material to match whatever decor you have in your dog’s favorite room.

Pill Pockets

If you have to give your dog medication, you may want to try making these homemade pill pockets. They can make medicine time so much easier for you and your dog.

DIY Dog Bed

If you have an old night stand laying around in the garage or you can find one cheap at a tag sale or thrift store, why not make your dog his very own DIY dog bed.

Dog Sweater

Dogs that live in colder climates will certainly appreciate having their own dog sweater. Don’t worry, it’s made by cutting down an old sweater. Or, you can always buy them a dog sweater instead.

Treat Puzzle

Are you looking for something to keep your dog entertained? Why not make a treat puzzle for them? You’ll want to make sure you have a few tennis balls on hand first.
