This post is sponsored by Nudges® Dog Treats and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help create awareness about Nudges Wholesome Dog Treats available at Walmart but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers.

Nudges Dog Treats quality treats at bargain prices

Our sweet Baxter has been a part of our family for almost three years now. That’s almost three years of pure joy and lots of furry hugs, belly rubs, and laughter. Does he ever make us laugh.

I’ve had several dogs in my lifetime but none that had quite the personality that Baxter does, he really is like a shorty, hairy canine comedian.

He is a good dog, always trying to please us. There is no question that Baxter loves us unconditionally. We hope he knows that love is reciprocated. One way we show him our love and how proud of him we are is by rewarding him with treats.

Quality Dog Treats at an Affordable Price

I want the treats we feed him to be of high quality and thanks to Nudges Dog Treats, we can provide him quality treats at an affordable price.

If you are a budget-minded person, Nudges Dog Treats are perfect. You really don’t have to sacrifice quality for price.

Shopping for Nudges at Walmart

One of my favorite sections of Walmart is the pet section. I could spend hours there, really. It’s where I pick up Nudges Dog Treats for Baxter.

Baxter loves Nudges Sizzlers and Grillers. I can tell you they look and smell like high quality treats and Baxter would tell you they taste great. I love that they are made with real chicken, pork, duck or beef. I also love that they are made in the USA. I can feel good about giving Baxter wholesome dog treats.

Another way dog owners show they love their dogs is by providing them with toys. It’s easy to give your pets budget-friendly dog toys, too, by making them yourself with things you probably already have around the house.

DIY Dog Toy in 5 Easy Steps

DIY Dog Toy Tutorial treats

It’s so quick and easy to make. Just follow these 5 easy steps…

What you Need:

  • Tennis ball
  • Old T-Shirts
  • Scissors
  • Drill

Step 1 DIY Dog Toy

Step 1: Gather your materials

Step 2 DIY Dog Toy

Step 2: Cut at least two strips of material (I did three) but probably no more than four strips or it will be too thick to go through the ball and make them long enough to give you at least a few inches on either side of the ball (plus enough room to tie knots).

Step 3 DIY Dog Toy

Step 3: Tie a knot on one end and start braiding the material.

Step 4 DIY Dog Toy

Step 4: As you are braiding the material be sure to make it very tight by pulling the material tautly as you continue to braid.

Step 5 DIY Dog Toy

Step 5: Drill a hole through the tennis ball and push your braided material through one end of the ball (I used the sharp end of my scissors to push it through). Once it’s through, tie a knot in that end.

Step 6 DIY Dog Toy

The real test is giving it to you fur friend to try it out.

DIY Dog Toy

Baxter gives his seal of approval. He loves it!

Told you it was easy! And I already had everything to make this pull or tug toy so it didn’t cost me a thing.

Nudges Dog Treats Twitter

It’s not difficult to reward your pups with good for them treats and dog toys without breaking the bank.

Be sure to follow Nudges on Twitter and like them on Facebook for information and all the great pet pics (that alone makes it worth it, just saying).
