    My dog likes raw olives - go figure.

    She likes the pickled ones better. When I give her sardines - it's the canadian ones packed in olive oil. And I usually only give her half the tinfull per day (and one tin per week) - otherwise they do come back to haunt us in ways neither of us enjoy.

    I also give her a couple of spoonfuls of yoghurt for breakfast - for variety, calcium and she likes it. (spoiled much).

    This morning again was a small win..

    I gave Beau a tin of Sardines, drained all but a drizzle of the oil out of the tin and put them over his new biccies. Again he gobbled it all up

    So far so good....

I agree with feeding what ever your dog does best on and what ever is easiest for you. So many people can be very vocal about what dogs should and shouldn't eat. We all want to feed them the best we can, but everyone's situation is different.
    Do a 'Mr Google' for BlackHawk Pet Care and it lists all the stockists Australia wide.

    So, moving on a few days. All still going well.

    I got Beau some chicken necks on my way home from work today, and just wondering if i give these individually as a treat or a few with biccies as one of his meals?

    Sorry for the dumbo question..

    Yeah I read that Sardines are good for coats, and eggs which also helps for protein.

    here is my regular diet for my dogs and most of the time I alternate them just to give them
    some options. In addition I mix the food and 1 per fortnight I give some special treats. Also
    weekend bones.

    Regular I buy

    1. Science Diet
    2. Pet mince/Beef Brisket ( I give the brisket as whole, so they can chew on those soft bones)

    So what I mix?

    1. Science Diet I mix with Raw Eggs
    2. meat (mince/stirfry cut) with Raw Eggs
    3. Sometimes I cook the meat with pasta and veg

    What I give for treats - like 1 per fortnight and every weekend

    1. Tuna pasta - every fortnight. After cooking it before I give it to them I add eggs
    2. Every weekend I get bag of dog bones from the butcher - I always pick the ones
    with a lot of meat left and cut in half (this is every week).
    3. Ones in awhile I give them chicken wings/necks

    Note: I give eggs 1-2 times a week. I mix 2 for the bigger dog and 1 for the pup.

    The reason behind what I give to my dogs, is to give them variety. Then A LOT OF WALKING
    mostly weekends lately we do bush walking.

    BD,I was told that pup's under 6 months don't have a good gag reflex and shouldn't be given anything large enough to choke on, so until Misha was old enough I'd chop the chicken necks into smaller sections. She is 13 months now and loves chomping through a whole chicken neck or wing.
