    Try putting food on it like peanut butter or something. Also try and get him really excited and and energetic then throw it. See if he goes after it.

    Ok, get the dog’s food scent on the toy. Next let your dog sniff the toy, if he bites it, your in luck! If not, te tease your dog with it, and see if it works. If not, buy better toys.

    Rub some meat on it or some other food. The toy should attract his smell and he should chew it. Also, make sure it isn’t too big for him. Puppies seem to prefer to chew things like stuffed animals or dog ropes over rubber toys. Also you need to punish him when he chews other things and reward him for chewing on his toys. If you catch him chewing something “out of bounds” stick something a little bitter or spicy in his mouth. With my dogs I used very mild hot sauce. Believe me, they quit biting and chewing VERY quickly.
