Young puppy, encouraging use of toys...

I don't squirm when puppies bite, even when it's hard. If too much I will yelp and quietly remove myself from any position.

All toys she has now are soft. Stuffed animals, braided tshirt ropes, other rope toys, a cotton terry rag, and similar. And I try and make them as fun as possible, making a big deal over them, etc, and ignoring anything with the rest, to make it as boring as possible.

Just my luck, second dog I've owned that is EXTREMELY food motivated and toys do very little, despite my best efforts and trying every toy possible.
