    I usually feed chicken necks, chicken carcass or sardines as snacks. For main, I boil chicken breasts with vegetables and feed them a bowl each with their dry kibble mixed in it. Pepsi loves any kind of bone but Mimi will not tolerate any bone that has fat on it. I avoid Lamb bones altogether as they make her sick. Recently, I give her and Pepsi mid loin lamb chops with the fat removed to chew on - 3 to one and they love it.

    Just updating and sharing my good news, I started feeding my beautiful schnauzer pup Sven chicken necks and he looks so much healthier and has more energy. I've watched him eating them and he chews them about 4 or 5 times then swallows - i was amazed.
    I've also fed him sardines and a lamb shank which he both loved. I found a website with recipes that they recommend makes up a third of their meal and the rest with raw meat, so I also give him mince, rice and veggie wet food with the raw meet.

    I bought Paw-Sha her first lambs neck today! well two actually. I was going out to watch the Grand Final today at a friends house and I had previously read this page with advice on bones......She loves them......I gave her one before I went, so I could watch and monitor her and the second one as I left, so she was entertained and busy for a bit while I was away. It was a huge hit....Thanks for the advice everyone! I think the chicken feet may be inhaled by Paw-Sha though......one gulp and there gone type gig. To small for a big dog like PS.

    I let Frosty have a raw lamb leg bone the other day. It took her a couple of minutes to chomp the joint end off it, and start splintering the long shank bit of it so I took it away and put it in the bin. She tends to swallow bits of sharp edged bone about the size of a 20c piece - whole. And then later in the night, sicks them up with all her dinner. Not fun for either of us.

    Same with beef marrow bones - I thought I'd be safe with those but once she gets through the joint bit, and gets to the main bit of bone, she splinters bits off so I put it in the bin at that stage. She's the same with the beef neck bones but it happens quicker plus the supermarket packs them with splinters - so I don't get those at all anymore.

    So I think I'd not be game to feed lamb neck bones unless I can teach her to chew her food properly.

    She had a chicken wing - just the one time - and sicked it up several hours later. I can't look at pink cake frosting anymore without feeling really ill.

    We always fed our dogs chicken necks. Kuro also gets whats called ' Kangaroo Lumbar ' bought from the pet shop. It is a section of the backbone that has been cured and dried. Kuro eats the meat between the discs and leaves the bone intact..

    Yeah, the roo tail is included in the Lumbar description.. It's what the pet shop here calls it. Kuro loves it !!
