you could still use rope toys to play with him but only when your there. Levi loves chewing soft toys but he destroys them. I suggest antlers its the only thing i have that has stood up to his chewing.

Isla is exactly the same. Bought her a rope toy, came back 15 minutes later and it was in pieces on the floor. She's fine with soft toys and ikea ones are fabulous.
Nylabone toys are really good too, last for ages as long as you get the right size.
Isla doesn't get rawhide any more because it upsets her tummy. She gets an antler every now and again instead.

my dogs do really well with the larger white nylabones... gallileo and the really large nylabone Big Chew and Durachew... we have had many of those for over a year and the dogs love them and they have not been able to destroy them ....

My dogs are never allowed rope bones or rawhides as I have known dogs that have died of blockages due to both of those things...

I do not feed greenies or the smaller nylabones as my dogs have been able to eat those quickly... raw marrow bones are great as long as they are larger/longer than the dogs jaw so they don't get caught behind the canines...and of course kongs but I have had aggressive chewers who destroy kongs
