This post is a collaboration with our partner blog, Creativity Unmasked. Oli was so excited about his new homemade squeaky Easter bunny toy that he couldn't resist a few nibbles before I could even snap a photo! Look at that drool! He wasn't going to give it up, either, keeping a possessive paw securely on his prize.
Head to our partner blog Creativity Unmasked for the full tutorial on how to sew your own simple squeaky Easter bunny soft dog toy (and more photos, of course!). Bonus! We made a mini-bunny for our cat brother Tiger as well. We truly do love furfriends of all shapes and sizes around here.
For the curious, yes (YES! YES! YES! Woofs! Hooray!), those are indeed dog-friendly Easter "chocolates" in the photo above and we'll be sharing the recipe with you here on Monday as our final pre-Easter weekly recipe post.
Remember, toys are for supervised interactive play. Know your dog before giving him or her any new toy. Some dogs would rather eat their toys (whether store bought or handmade), and that's dangerous. Toys are for playing and playtime is safer (and more fun!) with you involved. You can read more about dog toy safety here.
P.S. We are often asked about squeakers for repairing and making dog toys. As detailed in the comments, you may be able to find these locally if you're lucky. I couldn't find squeakers in my local craft shops either, but then discovered that I could buy them in bulk online. Hooray! I my experience, you can find them via large suppliers such as AliExpress, Amazon, or eBay depending on where you live and where you prefer to shop. They come in different shapes, sizes, etc. so you can explore options and find one that suits you and your pet.
