Default Suggested puppy toys for German Shep puppy

Hi all,

Any suggestions for toys for a currently 12 week old germen shep puppy?

Right now her favorite toy seems to be playing tug of war with her leash with a toy (one of those braided rope things) tied to the end of it. I know using her leash as a toy is not wise, but she enjoys it and when i put the leash on her, she doesnt treat it as a toy, so for now I'm going to keep playing with her with it, at least until i find something she likes better.

But i'd like to get her some more toys. She doesnt seem too keen on the tennis ball i picked up at petsmart. She does like to chew on the raw hide bones a bit. And she'll play with the frisbee a bit.

I should be getting some more toys today:

Although i just realized on that last one i ordered the small one...probably should have gotten medium or large.

Any suggestions for soft chew toys? She really seems to like stuffed things. I picked her up this bone shaped toy made out of canvas or some tough (but not tough enough) material. She really seemed to like chasing that and shaking it/chewing on it. It was fairly cheap and lasted a week so I wouldn't have a problem buying a few.

The other toy she seems to like are these 3 stuffed loops of canvas that are linked together. She likes to play tug of war with that.

I tried some cheap stuffed toy but not surprisingly she shredded it within a day. I'd prefer something made out of some tougher fabric that she can chew and shake and not have it fall apart instantly.

I tried a hard nylabone and one of the rubbery ones. She doesnt seem to like those too much. She never touches the rubbery one and only rarely touches the hard one.

Her favorite play things seem to be:

stuffed toys
Tennis ball type things (got her this donut shaped thing she likes to chew and chase)
empty card board tubes from the paper towels
ice


Any suggestions?
