When you have a pet dog, you have many responsibilities to help ensure its health and happiness. Of course, you need to ensure that your pet is well-nourished and has a safe, comfortable home with lots of love and attention. However, you also need to make sure that
your dog gets lots of mental stimulation and exercise, and one of the ways in which you can achieve this goal is by providing plenty of suitable toys for your pooch.
These days, high-quality dog toys do not come cheap, and many people are keen to find things for their dogs to play with while avoiding huge costs. One thing you should never do is buy low-quality toys that could prove dangerous. However, what you can do is look at some ideas for DIY dog toys – and if your toy is successful with your dog, you could even look at creating a new pet toy invention with Inventhelp.
There are lots of ideas that you can turn to for inspiration when it comes to creating safe and engaging dog toys for your pet. This means that your dog can have some fun and enjoy some mental stimulation while you get to save money and be creative. If you have aspirations of inventing a product that other pet owners can use, you should make sure you seek help to patent your idea or invention as soon as possible with the support of the InventHelp team.
In this article, we will look at some popular ideas for DIY dog toys for your pet, and also look at how InventHelp can assist you as a pet product inventor.
Some of the Popular DIY Toys
There are lots of ideas for DIY dog toys if you want to provide fun and stimulation for your pet without breaking the bank. This is a great way to also bond with your dog and put your creative skills and ideas to good use. Some of the popular options you can consider are:
We all know that dogs love to chase things, and one of the things you can create for your pet is a flirt pole. All you need for this is some PVC pipe that you might already have lying around and some bungee cord. You will also need to toy that your dog will chase to tie to the end of the bungee cord. Tie or thread the bungee cord to the pipe, and then tie the items your dog will be chasing – such as a stuffed toy – to the other end. Your dog can then chase its prey with ease around the flirt pole.
Another thing that dogs love to do is to chew on plastic items, so your empty plastic bottles can be really useful. Make sure the plastic is not too soft as it will otherwise fall apart right away. Wrap the bottle in some material such as an old sock or glove, and your dog can then enjoy biting and playing with it. However, make sure that your pet is supervised with this type of homemade toy.
Fairy Cake Tin Puzzle
You can also create something to get your dog thinking, and this is a great way to stimulate its mind and brain. If you have an old fair cake or muffin tin, put some dog treats into some of the moulds but not into all of them. Then cover all of the moulds in the tin with tennis balls or even screwed-up paper so that your pet cannot see which ones have the treats. It is then up to your dog to work out which balls and paper to remove to find the moulds that have the treats inside.
These are just a few of the options that you can consider for your DIY dog toys. Of course, you might want to use them as inspiration, and then come up with your own great idea to keep dogs entertained and stimulated. If your idea works well, it is worth considering pursuing it as an invention for the wider market, and this is where InventHelp professionals can assist you. If you feel that other dogs can benefit from your toy invention, it is a good idea to move your idea forward as an invention, and InventHelp can assist you in many ways.
For instance, when you come up with a great idea for a DIY dog toy, you want to ensure that nobody else copies it or comes up with the same idea and moves forward with it before you. So, getting your invention patented and legally protected is important in order to avoid issues such as these. The team at InventHelp can assist you when it comes to getting a legal expert to sort this patent protection out as quickly and efficiently as possible.
It is also important to have a proper prototype of your dog toy invention, and there are various options you can choose from. The team can help you to choose the right option for your product, and this can then help to generate more interest from parties such as potential
investors and businesses that stock and sell pet products.
You will also get around-the-clock support from the professionals, and this can prove especially important if you are on your first invention journey. You can turn to them for advice, information, and access to tools and resources to help make your experience more fun, enjoyable, and easier.
Of course, there is also the fact that the team can ensure your invention is seen by the right people, and they have a database of companies interested in reviewing products from fresh new talent. This can prove very useful in ensuring your invention is seen by relevant businesses.
These are just some of the many ways in which the team at InventHelp can assist you with your new dog toy invention.
