Koby, if there is a tack shop in your area try there for super tough horse toys. I'm sure that they make the Jolly Ball in a gianormous size and also look up Equi-Spirit Toys online.

Have you tried the Jolly Egg? Rexy has one and it's hard plastic, shaped so that it rolls erratically, and is just big enough that she can't pick it up but instead kicks it around the yard while barking.

If he loves toys that much then I'll bet that you could start teaching him some impulse control around them. If anything, I'll bet that this would exhaust him (and as a bonus, potentially make his toys last a bit longer!). smile

They make them for horses & they seem to be a bit more sturdy. Try checking horse supply websites or local tack stores.

Impulse control is something I do really need to work on. I just need to get rid of some of his energy first. I'm going to look for a tack shop like someone suggested. Maybe they would have the big horse toys. I did look on line for them. They are so expensive. Although, at this point it might be worth it.

Sarah LOLOLOL Don't think I haven't thought about it........ It reminds me of a news story where a dog chewed the bumper off a police car. I went on line and saw the "Extra Heavy-Duty Ultimate Ball" which is made for Extreme environments from Equi Spirit. I think I would consider Koby an extreme environment. Has anyone had any experience with those? I know they are very expensive, but if it saves my sanity I might just get one as long as I know it will last more than 5 minutes.
