Just gave an empty one to Jaspar and he spent a busy 20 minutes tearing it to pieces. :lol: Next time I will put some treats inside and then put the cap on and let him shred it. Funny how the expensive toys get ignored and a Pringles can is cause for great excitement. :rolleyes:

Yea, the home made toys are usually a hit here too. Hadn't thought of a Pringles can though. We'll have to see what the troops here think :)

My only fear is the incentive now to buy Pringles, which I only like once in a while! :)

So true...

Ollie waits patiently for the empty toilet-paper roll to chew & shred. Empty plastic water bottles are always a hit as well.

After Renate's posts on her home-made gadgets, I've been thinking about some easy things I could make. Karlin- the pringles can is a good one! Put a little hole in the lid, place small treats inside, and put the lid back on...voila!

When Max was little I gave him toilet paper and paper towel rolls. They kept him occupied for ages. Now he shreds them too quickly. Pringle rolls might last longer though.

Mine just shred cardboard. They eat it sometimes too -- never any ill effects. If a dog ate a lot of cardboard though, I'd be cautious.

Two of mine would love this, Abigail and Jasmine, it's the thought of cleaning up after them that stops me icon_devil

We discovered lately our Rabbit loves pringles cans, theyre 4 times the size of her but she loves bangin them around.
Rex also loves them but only cos the rabbit tries to get them first :rotfl:

Koda and Bella LOVE paper towel and toilet paper rolls. You would think I had given them a big juicy treat! They shred it like crazy. Its a mess to clean up, but they have a great time. I will certainly try the Pringles can. I tend to have a few of those around, thanks to my 13 yr old son! Can't wait to see what they do with it! Thanks, Karlin!cl*p

How cute, would love to see a rabbit playing with a Pringles can! Sounds like a good subject for a YouTube video...

My Harley follows me into the bathroom to see if there is an empty toilet roll in the bin. He loves them. My other two couldn’t care less.

Although bad for the physique, I'll have to buy a can for them to try it out! ;)

One of my friends bought a toy for her dogs that you stick a beat up water bottle inside of and the dogs really seem to love it!

Another thing Oz loves (he's the only one of my four with a destructive tendency) is the paper bags from the grocery store. I usually use them as recycling bags, but will sometimes let him tear one apart. He has great fun with it.

I sometimes give mine youghurt containers, not quite empty. There are ones in Lidl that are nice and wide so Prince enjoys finishing them off and then playing with the empty container (Belle does not enjoy working for any food, she's a lady dontcha know) :rotfl:

Max retrieved all of my wooden row markers from the garden after I planted seeds:sl*p: He thought it was great fun and now what is growing is a surprise. He also finds old plastic plant pots (from who knows where) and will have a heck of a time playing with them in the yard.

I agree with the hate of having to clean up the mess, but other than that it's a good idea! :thmbsup:

Another cheap toy is to tie up an old sock nto a knot the dogs love playing tug-o-war and chewing the knot. Plus it's FREE!!! :jmp:

Barney loves pringle cans and empty plastic bottles too. He loves finding things he shouldn't have as well, like clothes pegs etc and will bring them to me and spit them out for a treat, they sure are crafty.:rolleyes::D

Max has me very well trained a the trade game too. After the garden incident I wised up and drew a plan of my garden and what was planted where, proving that even old owners can learn new tricks:badgrin:

Brilliant saying!! Us mere humans can still outsmart the obviously intellectually superior canines occasionally :p
