Throw the ball,- already!

|Thanks, I suppose I'll just have to start crating him when I'm gone. I didn't mean it to sound like I thought my social life was more important, btw-It's not. And as far as trips to the city, those happen like 3x a year, if that.
However, I live in a rural area-no friends or petsitters to be seen.
I've tried excercising him, but being a young lab, he has boundless energy. Multiple walks a day, plus multiple training sessions, plus tossing a ball sporadically throughout the day doesn't work to fully tire him out. I'm thinking of taking up hiking/swimming with him
As for leaving him in the bathroom, I'd probably need a new toilet if I did that. I've worked with dogs before, and I've never met one this destructive.
Thanks for your help, though. I'm sure I can figure out a way to expel his excess energy, and knowing I can't trust him alone, I'll just make sure to crate him when I'm gone.
