Our 8 month old GSD has no toys left to play with, save a few thick bones. We can't find anything for him to play with that isn't destroyed in seconds. We bought him a black kong, since he loved the red ones so much (before he eats them), but he ignores the black one unless we insert some peanut butter in it. Obviously we can't do that all day. He has the hardest bone nylabone makes, but only plays with it when he's really bored. I can't blame him on that one. The thing doesn't even look interesting. He had some kong tennis balls, but he ate them. Stuffed animals have a lifespan that can be counted in minutes. He has a really large one, the size of a real cocker spaniel, that I let him play with whenever I have the time to pick up all the fluff he tears out of it. He has about eight beef bones, with the meat all chewed off, that are his main play toys. I feel bad when he brings them to me, wanting me to play fetch with them. Not a good idea in the house. The other day I bought him two children's kick balls. One was popped in 30 seconds. The other lasted long enough for him to push it with his nose from the kitchen to the living room before he popped it. He's getting a basketball for Christmas, but I sure wish I could find some other toys for him. I've been searching Jeffers Pet website looking for ideas. Everything I see there is something we've already tried, only to watch it be destroyed.
