    My baby girl loves hers to bits!!! Its the only toy she hasn't destroyed in 2 minutes!!! I don't use food in hers she just likes to carry it around with her, we only bought her the Kong because it floats in water as she was forever dropping all her balls in the pool - it floated well for the first 12 months!!

    I have 2 Kong toys for my border and she loves them
    you can use em as a fetch toy or fill them with treats to keep them occupied.

    They can be expensive but unless you have a staffy or a rottie etc, they'll last a life time.

    My rotti x german shep won't go anywhere without his. he loves it to bits.

    on average, rubber balls last 5 minutes with his jaws. his kong is over 3 years old. cannot fault it.

    Paw-Sha has two different types of Kongs, but only play with them if there is a treat in it for her, otherwise they just get ignored.
    If you are looking for a great toy that will entertain Tony for Hours on end.
    Buy a "bungy rope toy" It is hard to explain, I will add some pictures of Paw-Sha playing with hers so you know what it looks like

    I gave a kong ball filled with sardines to my dog for the first time today, and she loved it. I think shes yet to figure out the quickest way to get the food out (bounce the ball!) - she just keeps nudging it.

    She gets a knobbly rubber treat ball (don't think it's kong brand) filled with part of her breakfast kibble nearly daily and she loves it. She spends ages nudging it and pawing it, until she pushes it under her bed or behind the BBQ. I spent quite a bit on that thing (around the $30 mark). I bought it before picking her up from a rescue place, just in case she had issues staying at home while we're at work. It seems to work - as soon as that thing comes out she loses all interest in me and doesn't even notice me leave. But the frustrating thing is I popped into an op shop the day we adopted her, in the search for a large ball to kick around - and found an old, rigid (hard plastic) treat ball for $2.25 which she loves just as much as the expensive one. Oh well, now she has two.

    So perhaps try all the secondhand avenues - op shops, swap meets, garage sales, gumtree, freecycle, facebook buy, swap, sell groups, etc. Secondhand also means you'll only get the toys that really are indestructable. (..or the toys other dogs weren't interested in)

    Kongs have the advantage of indestructability and you can put different things in. I am very careful buying toys from reject shops and anywhere really as Mags can shred and ingest the stuffung/string etc. For dogs with strong jaws kongs are good, so are boat rollers

    seeing how you're in here purple possum...

    the cheap hard plastic treat ball - beware of that melting if you leave it in the sun. That's how I destroyed the one that had tread on it as if it was a hard plastic car tyre... melted....

    But the bob a lot is doing well - tho I don't leave that in the sun. All the treat balls I have including the star mark one (bright green) - are prone to dropping their bit of kibble under the couch - which results in considerable frustration for the dog who sings for help in a most amusing way.
