My new 5 yo GSD lady is a petite 50 lbs with jaws that could crush rocks and front teeth like scissors. I have tried several 'tough' toys (under supervision) and she has demolished them within minutes. Survivors she enjoys are 'Chuck it balls' and 'Kong squeezz', I think because they keep moving as she lets them go. The fabric survivors are Tuffy Ring and Kong Tug, but she has lost all interest in them, again I think because they don't keep bouncing around.
I'm particularly interested in some kind of puzzle toys, that I can leave her with when I'm away and wonder what kinds of treat you leave in them.
thx.

Please be aware of abrasive toys, my dog's teeth are very worn from playing a lot with the Kong Air Dog Squeaker balls and the Kong Wubba Ballistic friends. He loved them, shame about the tooth wear, something I didn't expect to happen.

I put kibble in these balls. They're surprisingly tough and bounce. And they make for some funny photo oportunities.

GOUGHNUTS! They have a lifetime warranty, are affordable, and the rubber shows red when it’s time to replace them. IF you ever need to. I have the tug toy for several years now and it has barely a toothmark on it. Oh, they float too.

I would also say becareful about wearing down the teeth. If you have a dog that likes to carry things around and knosh on the
it can happen over time. I liked toys that are not abrasive soft and they can squish have some flexion. We still have a stuffed gingerbread man my first gsd refused to shred.
