    My puppy loves those balls you mentioned earlier. They go MILES when thrown with a ball flinger.

    Tennis balls with some dogs don't rot their teeth so much as grind them down some people say with ball fanatic dogs.
    Can't remember if you said you have used kongs.
    What is kongs?

    You have a very intelligent dog on your hands that along with a lot of exercise he also needs brain stimulation

    They can be easy or harder ones that the dog has to really work to get all the food etc out of them.
    For stuff in them it is as easy as shoving some meat, treats, whatever your dog likes and is safe for them to eat..he just has to work at it.
    Mine love them. As I have a cat I sometimes use some of the dry food they love with mince, leftover roast etc that is a bit too old for us to eat, cheese, anything really.

    My Katy has spent a very long time crated due to her Surgery...I bought her one of theses (plus a few others) from Amazon USA. Much cheaper even with postage then buying from anywhere here

    She spends hours with it..........I use home cooked liver treats and 100% dried treats i make, but dryfood will do too


    Amazon.com: Kong Wobbler Dog Toy: Pet Supplies


    And below is one of the puzzles we play with, but it is supervised only..........Hubby attached it to a large piece of ply, so she cannot tip it. Works well

    Amazon.com: Company of Animals Nina Ottosson Dog Tornado Interactive Plastic Toy: Pet Supplies


    All of these toys and many like it, make the dog think....thinking can be just as tiring as just getting them to exercise . And the last link is a book I own

    A kong, is a extreemly expensive type of dog toy, that you fill with treats, then give to your dog, who buries it immediately in the garden, and you never see it again!

    Bloody waste of money in this family of dogs!.

    Are they these balls? High Bounce Ball

    I buy similar ones per piece at Kmart, Spalding or Mambo brand. They're about $2 a piece though, I think. And they do bounce really well!

    I would bring the puppy inside at night. Bella and Harley use to run around barking way to early in the morning, it's stopped since they have been inside.

    TBH, I have to agree with Jadie. I would never use one and have never used one on a dog, let alone a puppy! Imagine getting an electric shock everytime you looked the wrong way! Oskar doesn't bark very much as we do allow him in the house. Just get rid of the cats (lol joking)
