Based on our experience as a hands-on pet owner, pets, specifically the dogs, are curious about certain sounds that they hear. They tend to explore the object and that is the start of their playing journey until they discover what is on it. There are several times that we leave our pets at home especially if we need to go to the market, have some appointment with the doctor or we just need to go to work or in school.
Since we love them and we don’t want the pets to die of boredom, we came up with this unique sound producing toy.

And if you are just a kid who would want to give some gift to your pet, then you can also craft this cool pet toy, too.
