Dog toys to help the environment

water bottle dog toyThere is some great dog toys on the market that can help us reduce our rubbish and at the same time occupy active dogs, at D4DOGZ we are always excited if we can find a dog toy that is both fun for the dogs and great for the environment.

The Water bottle Buddies are an excellent idea, they make good use of empty water or cool drink bottles, simply wash the used container and insert into the bottom of this dog toy.  A Velcro enclosure will keep the empty bottle inside the plush cover.

Dog just love the sound empty bottles make as they chew and play with this top little dog toy, for extra fun try adding some small treats or dry food inside the bottle to make a rattling sound and watch your pooch get excited.

When the bottle is chewed to bits or too flat, just pop another clean, dry bottle up to approx 600ml size inside, and you’ll have a happy dog.

In summer you can put water in a capped bottle and freeze, this will help your dog to stay cool in the hot weather, now that’s a versatile dog toy!

The water bottle buddy dog toy currently is available in two styles, a cute yellow dog and a brown cow they are both a little over 30cm long, so are a good sized dog toy for smaller breeds. The insides of this dog toy are lined with a tough fabric for extra durability.

So if you are looking for a dog toy to amuse your pooch and at the same time would like to be environmentally aware, we think we have a great option for you! They make a great idea as a Xmas present as well.
