Take to dog parks, run, bike, roller blade, play fetch, try hide and seek, play find the treat hide them under cups and let him find the right one. He will need more than an hour exercise to tire him out. As far as toys try the everlasting treat ball thats one of my dogs favorites. He also loves his new toy I just got him the Kong Wobbler that is wonderful mental stimulation for him. Try the classic Kong with peanut butter and dog food. You can also freeze it to make it harder to get out. There are tons of recipes you can make to put in the kong so its not always the same. He gets more tired from mental than physical. Or you can try other treat balls like the IQ ball or buster cube. They also have doggie puzzles you can check out getting your own agility course for your back yard. There are tons of things you can do with your dog.
Get him into agility, nosework, tracking, or flyball. Just find what works for you both.
R.I.P- Smokey my GSD/Husky. You are my hero, my heart, my soul and you will forever remain in my heart. You were a true companion. I love You and miss You so much. Run like the wind!!
