How can I..?

How can I tire out my 10 week old pup? Without all of her shots I don't want go walk her around the block. She has little to no interest in a ball so fetch is out of question. Really toys just don't seem to be much of interest at all maybe for a minute or two and she's over it. We train and she does good with that, occasionally plays tug but even then it's more like she holds on and just follows your motions, loves rough housing but her teeth are getting sharp. Just looking for anything to help tire out a food driving puppy because if food isn't involved all she wants are ankles and hands. 0_o
Ideas?

look up a flirt pole. Puzzle games. lay out a food trail for her to follow so she has to use her nose to find the goodies. You can use part of her regular meals for this.

Be creative..

Play inside the house, may be let him chase you?? Put a tennis ball inside a sock, tie the end and throw/roll pass him, the sock movement with the ball inside might get his attention?
May be throw around his chewing toy and let him chase it?

I never had this problem, my pup has a strong prey and play drive, he chased anything moving: ball, cat, feet my the day one.

Just my experience.

I like the flirt pole, engagement training, and possibly a ball.

Don't know where you live but...find an empty parking lot or an office complex on the weekends. Concrete and asphalt aren't good host for Parvo.
