I am planning on getting my cousin's dog(see My cousin's Dog in Dog Pictures) a toy. As you can see from the photos he is kept outside on a chain 24h a day and he has no stimulation. He is 1 year and 3 months old so I don't know what toy to get him. The floor is either dusty (when weather is warm) or muddy(after rain), so I don't think a Kong is a good idea but I will take your advise...

Please Help!!!

Orka makes some puppy toys but they can also have bigger ones that are very tuff and durable and can be left outside... They are a light blue color... Pretty crappy for him to leave him out on a chain all day everyday..... um Kong came out with a new Kong toy that also may be better for that type of environment... they are long tube type shaped toys instead of the kong shape

I'd try to get him off the chain 24h a day..
That might be better than any toy you could come up with.

Yes, first get him off the chain, then start with chopped, pressed rawhide, treat balls and, edible nylabones or similar things and, a rag bone you can interact playing fetch, chase it or tug o war with. Get the interaction going, get him looking forward to spending time with you. It will make training easier.

Yeah but the floor....
Won't the dust do any damage to his lungs?
He lives outside, in dust, 24/7. Nothing you do or give him is going to make that any worse...


I agree with getting him off that chain.

But otherwise, agree with some nice bedding and bone, maybe a marrow bone.
