Water Bottle Crackle Toy for Dogs

This toy is great for dogs as it encourages self-directed play. It can also strengthen the bond between you and your animal when you use it for games like fetch! 

Equipment needed:

  • Clean, empty bottle (not seen in photo – remove cap and plastic ring first)
  • Fabric (fleece or flannelette sheet/pillow case – you can also use a sock!)
  • Scissors


  1. Cut a piece of fabric big enough to wrap around the water bottle a few times. Be sure to leave excess material at both ends. Next, cut two separate strips of fabric about 3cm x 15cm.
  2. Wrap the fabric around the water bottle.
  3. Tightly secure the bottle in the centre by tying the strips of fabric at both ends.
  4. Cut the excess fabric into strips.
