Our basement is finished but empty so we play fetch, tug, and with the flirt pole down there, it's the only place in the house that's carpet so he has good grip rather then hardwood. Training does help keep the mind busy. All else fails, crating or being leashes to me has helped.
Also stuffed kongs, and fresh marrow and knuckle bones that are frozen
