    When I crate Riley, I would like to put a chew toy in his crate to give him something to do. What are some safe chew toy recommendations that he could have unspervised?

    I have a nylabone for puppies but I don't him have that unsupervised. Has anyone used the Orka toys?

    When Fillion was being crated at night, I would put Busy Bee and a bully stick in for him. His bee was his favorite plush toy from the first day :smile2:

    I'm assuming you don't give him the puppy nylabone unsupervised because you worried he might choke on it, but just today I spotted a very long nylabone filled with turkey flavorings. I don't know how big your dog is so I don't know if this would work or not but he wouldn't swallow it (or not until it got very small, I would throw it out it out at that time). I also use treat dispensers. The package says that it will keep your dog occupied for hours, but my dogs will lick them clean in less than 30 minutes.:rolleyes2:

    I had read warnings about the possibility of the nylabone breaking into small pieces. Maybe I am to worried something will happen. I haven't seen any othr shelties to compare Riley too, but I think he seems pretty small so maybe he can't chew hard enough with puppy teeth to break the nylabone. I have not seen Riley show much interest in the puppy nylabone for awhile. Maybe he needs a flavored one to hold his interest? I will have to try to find the turkey one you mentioned
