This is true, and some dogs like certain toys and not others, so I would give her a variety to see what she likes. We've stopped buying rubber toys since all our puppy likes are plush. She's also not a fan of balls much (unless they have ropes or things sticking out of them).
If you try different things with her, you'll find out what she likes. We do:
- Throwing a toy for her to run after (she doesn't bring it back yet, but she likes to go get it)
- Clicker training (crate, handling, 101 things to do with a box, running through things, jumping on and off the couch, sit, down, etc.)
- Chewing on different things (stuffed Kong, bully stick, stuffed hollow bone, feathers, loofah toy, flavored nylabone, etc.)
- Playing chase (I run and she runs after me - I have to be careful with this game, because she starts to get nippy, so you may not be able to play it yet since I know you were having bite inhibition problems with her)
