kongs are good! at my work we fill them with peanut butter or canned cheese and the dogs love them! Even though some dogs chew them, they've stood up to any dog that comes in! Even mastiffs!

ps-cute doggie!

Stuffing two Kong's, hiding them,

This is a great idea! I've never thought of hiding Bowie's Kong, or freezing the peanut butter like Jaeda suggested. I don't know what they make those things out of but he hasn't been able to dent that thing yet.

Throwing a few dog biscuits around randomly, turning on music for them (they like singers and standards, we left rock and roll on once and we came home to a real mess, they rocked out all day!).

This is a hilarious mental picture, I can soooo see 2 doggies going nuts while rock music plays! I leave the television on for Bowie, and he does seem to mellow out more when Animal Planet it is on as opposed to any other channel. And I'm very sorry about your couch, mine has only gotten into a couch CUSHION, and he only tore open a seam to get the stuffing out, so it is easily reparable. I definitely agree with you that they do these things because they're bored, and that it doesn't make them bad dogs.

I have to say your dog is beautiful!

I used to have a dog who chewed up things like crazy. We would buy big bags of stuffed animals at a thrift store for a quarter, or whatever. It's usually pretty cheap. We would also take old socks and tie a knot in them. The only problem is, she would occasionally tire of her own stuffed animals and go after mine, since it was all the same to her.

This is amazing! My German Shepherd loves squeaky toys but they always end up in a million pieces in the backyard. This seems like it'll last quite a while. I'm making one today.

I've noticed it's often the fabric that rips, not the stitching, so jeans are a good idea! Cheesy

great idea. i agree with blue_concubine, everything i've heard about keeping dogs buzy agrees with that. sencondy, i wouldn't recoment tennis balls, i've read the rubber lining contains lots of chemicals that are not good for your dog. they do make dog tennis balls but they cost more. good luck with the toys, hope it holds up!

We always hit up the claw machines (DH is a claw machine whiz) and thrift stores for toys for our kids (aka the muts) but I might have to consider doing this with the tons of extra jeans that I was just about to take to good will!!!  And filling it with more jeans and scraps is so clever too because it's thicker and you still don't have to spend money on filler!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I usually go to the dollar store and get stuffed animals. My monsters can destroy anything. We had to take Kato to the vet one time and have a piece of Kong removed from his stomach where he ripped it apart. I like the idea of jeans-they are pretty sturdy.

Aw man- I hope it can take his playful wrath... I know how you feel. Roxy won't destroy other things, but she's always killing her toys.

Here's a playful dramatization: http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a157/drowningmermaid86/Pets/Roxy/mindofaserialstuffedanimalkiller.gif

 For a maltese, she's got some crazy chompers! I've bought her a kong, but she doesn't seem to like those. Sad So if your toy works for your pup, then I know there's hope. haha. Hopefully you'll update us soon. Smiley

Ooh, geat idea!  I should try this.  My Golden/Shar-pei mix is the Master of Unstuffing things...sometimes she unstuffs her toys through such a tiny tear in the seam I have a hard time figuring out how she did it!  I have in the past, re-stuffed it and sewed the hole closed! saves money : ) 
Lately I have been making her enjoy the empty "carcass". Lol

I have pleanty of old jeans tho..: )
