hi everyone!  I'm working on  some gifts for people for christmas, and i wanted to make a couple of stuffed toys for my friends' dogs... in the shape of ZOMBIES! Smiley
i think the project itself should be pretty straight forward, I was wondering if anyone knows of any different techniques/materials that would make this project more pet-friendly... and pet-resiliant.

thanks!

It honestly depends on the dogs. For example, my chihuahuas (2) Bandit doesn'r like toys to begin with, Chico loves toys and he plays catch with them and my lab will he loves to play catch, tug of war, and just plain out tear apart toys. So for my chihuahuas I would make Bandit a bed out of flannel or something (not a toy I know but there are other dogs out there that dont like toys) and for Chico I could use regular cotton or felt even (that seems to be the material of his favorite toy (a carrot LMAO) ) but for my lab I can't make him anything that he wont tear up, I have to buy really hard rubber for real toys but he likes to play with empty 2 litter bottles too.

SOOO after all this if maybe you could describe the dogs size and "aggression" we might be able to better help you.

Good Luck! Grin

 Shocked one of the dogs is named chico... that's so funny Cheesy
chico is HUGE - i don't know what kind of dog, but he mostly likes to chew his toys, carry them, and play tug-of-war.
the other dog is very small, and not very aggressive, however likes to chew the toys and play catch.

i like the idea of felt... that might work well

Yeh I'd probably be leary about the felt with the larger dog unless its momma will be watching him everytime he has it (my lab will start to eat the pieces if he gets it torn up) and the small one should be fine with felt. I'm not sure what other material you could use for the larger dog though, maybe someone else on here has an idea...

Good Luck though, post pics when your finished!! Grin
