I have a year old dutch shepherd that gets destructive when bored. What kind of activities would give the dog a 'job to do'?

you could give the dog what is called a kong and put something like a small treat into it or other toys that offer problem-solving challenges. dogs like the dutch shepherd need daily mental stimulation or they will become destructive. also, be sure to give enough daily exercise.

I would recommend when taking your dutch shepherd dog on long daily walks with a special dog backpack to carry filled water bottles as weights in. There's nothing better you can give a dog than a job. Kongs mentally are very stimulating and so are specialized mentally-stimulating toys that are not easily figured out/destroyed. You can also teach your dog new tricks. Teaching a dog to find objects works well.
