    Brody's favourite thing to do with toys is to rip the toys into little bits! I know its not boredom because we did training sessions and went for a huge walk today. He just loves to lie down with a toy and rip it into tiny pieces. I was wondering if anybody has any toys that you can recommend. I have kongs and bones for him but his favourite thing to do is just rip the toys.

    I guess stuffing-free toys won't help much, if Brody is ripping the toys into pieces....

    I wonder, if one could somehow train a dog to not rip up toys?

    My dog only pulls the stuffing out of some of his toys, if he IS bored, so i have no idea IF or HOW one could possibley approach teaching a dog to NOT shred the toy....

    i wonder if THIS idea could help? for toy ripping? ??Probably, like most training focused on dog behavior, it'd probably require many many lessons to effect a change in the dog's behavior,
    and possibly even some ongoing, "refresher" lessons now and then..????

    JW has lots of good toys that aren't easy to rip up,
    And Chuckit brand toys are also good,
    How about if you buy him a toy that he really loves so he can play with it, but supervise him so he won't rip it up???:D

    Good ideas! Thanks!!! I cant give him tennis balls for a long period of time hey get destroyed and even the harder hockey balls! I could not believe that he ripped the orange hockey ball to pieces. I'm going to retrain the positive interrupter and invest in some more durable toys!!!:LOL:
    He also loves toys that he can shake...maybe ill buy him more of those
