In my house...dogs that gut/tear up toys are supervised, as mentioned before...and if they're out...they can play with them...but not tear them up (they're taken away then). When they're crated...the other dogs can play with their toys all they want.

Gotty has them upstairs. He will destuff then play with the dead stuffie. Kinzyl will shred the whole thing until there is nothing left.

For some dogs "play" is destroying them, for some dogs it's just actually playing with them. They seem to be expecting the dog to change her play style and I'm not seeing that happen easily.
