Best toys for Australian Shepherds?

He has destroyed every toy except his Kong. Are there any that anybody knows of that would keep him busy? He takes all the stuffing out of the plush ones and chews balls up. Thanks!

they can chew the kong in times of boredom. but in the end the dog is chewing things bc his body needs to stay active. Not being mean but he may not being getting enough exercise. You could teach him Frisbee, fetch, swim him, join a club for herding dogs? A dog tired dog is a happy dog. I got a dog from the shelter and she was not happy. After learning how to fetch and enough exercise outside she later stopped. she liked fuzzy things too so she never got that kind of toy ever. Just a kong should be ok, stuff it if you have to :) good luck.

Kongs are the only thing I can give my Aussie/Kelpie too. He's not a big fan of Nylabone, plus I've heard many people say their dog broke a tooth on them, so I don't want to take a chance.

Some of the previous answers gave pretty good links though :) keep checking around local pet store, might find an off-brand item that's a life saver!
