6 Clever Ways You Can Find Pet Supplies at a Discount

Owning a pet is far from cheap.

In their first year of life, puppies will cost their owner an average of $1,270, while kittens cost around $1,070. After that, pet parents continue to spend around $500 a year on their four-legged-children.

If you’re a pet parent, you know that you can’t put a price on your furry friend’s love. But that doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t like to save some cash on your dog or cat’s usual expenses. read more

Cheap DIY Dog Toys Your Dog (And Wallet) Will Love

You come home from the pet store excited to surprise your dog with a new, shiny toy. The price was a little ridiculous- like nice dinner at a fancy restaurant ridiculous- but you’re a sucker for seeing your dog’s face light up at the sight of a new toy.

But within minutes of giving your dog his new toy, he’s completely destroyed it to the point where it’s almost unrecognizable.

If this scenario all too familiar, it’s time you do something about it.

Dog toys aren’t meant to last forever, but if you’re spending an arm and a leg, they should last a while.

So what’s the solution?

Switching to cheap dog toys. But don’t worry, cheap doesn’t mean cheap quality.

Here are the top cheap dog toys your dog (and your wallet) will love:

1. Tennis Ball in Sock

They say a dog is a man’s best friend. But we’re pretty sure if dogs could talk, they might disagree and say their real best friend is a tennis ball.

If you’re looking for a way to “spice up” this classic dog toy, just grab any old sock. Put the tennis ball inside the sock and tie a knot at the end. And voila! You’ve now got the easiest, cheapest, and handiest dog toy money can buy.

2. Stuffed Chew Toy

Dogs love stuffed chew toys. Walk down any pet store aisle and you’ll see dozens and dozens of brands claiming their chew toy is “the best.”

But guess what?

Your dog doesn’t know the difference between a name brand chew toy and one you made at home.

To make a cheap alternative you’ll need:

  • two small pieces of fabric (an old t-shirt works great) 
  • a handful of stuffing 
  • a needle and thread
