Default Toys for kennel?

Anyone have any suggestions of toys that we can give Draven in his outdoor kennel?

Jolly Balls or Jolly Eggs

I would be careful of what you leave with him if you are not watching him in his kennel. Jolly Balls and Eggs are big enough that I don't think that they could pose a threat to his health if left alone with them.

I would definitely not recommend leaving any soft toys in his crate with him if you are not supervising, since he could easily chew them apart and swallow the squeaker, with potentially dire consequences. I keep a teething key ring made for large dogs in Ava's crate, along with a nylabone and two other hard plastic chew toys for large dogs. I'll try to see if I can find a link to the key chain. It was recommended to me by a breeder, and Ava absolutely LOVES it.

ETA: Here is an example of the key ring, on ebay.

Ya I'd never give him a soft toy in his kennel. He does has his dragon in his crate at night (uses him as a pillow; I'll try to get pic)
We were looking at this huge jolly ball at a pet store so thought I'd ask one toys. Thanks looks like we know what Draven is getting for Christmas

Just fyi, Jolly Balls are great but not indestructible. Mine have always chewed/broken the handles (just by natural carrying and biting, not concentrated gnawing) and once that's done, they can shred them up if left alone for a while.

Spirit's jolly egg ball doesn't have handles, it's one of the longest lasting toys he has ... it's pretty scraped up from him mouthing it but is just as functional now as the day it arrived. We love our jolly egg ball

Squeaky toys? Spirit's mission is to gut anything that squeaks (he's a little more gentle with the cat LOL). I'd be very careful with this ... there's been a few times I've had to pull poop out of his butt that was stuck to thread and wouldn't come out on its own. So pleasant, but potentially very dangerous also I would guess.

Jolly balls are great, but like someone mentioned - the handles can be chewed off. It took Ky about 2 weeks and she got the handles off! Mind you, I watched her just to see if she could!

There must be different kinds of jolly egg balls. Ours is hard plastic, egg shaped, no handles. Spirit can gnaw on it somewhat, but impossible to chew.

Hah, famous last words? Ball is many months old now, still going strong.

The ball we found is huge and no way he can chew it and there was no handles. I think I have a picture
