    That is very. very salty and really only should be rarely done. you can always boil up some bones and make your own (don't feed the cooked bones) you may even want to freeze a raw bone into it too.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I only (in relation to bones) fed brisket bones and chicken parts or the whole carcass. My dogs have always consumed the entire thing eliminating the need to pick up bones or have it buried by them. I never feed marrow bones, all they are is fat and hard bone that can chip teeth and encourage vermin, I also have found that my dogs have never been able to tolerate them always getting sick after having one. I love, love raw food feeding.

    Dr Billinghurst has a great book called Give Your Dog A Bone this is a great guide for raw feeding.

    All the best with your new puppy.

    When I'm going out, I give my dog a piece of dried roo jerky. It hasn't got any bones in it. My dog takes about 1 minute to polish it off but I'm sure yours would take a little bit longer. You can get it from some of the independent pet supplies around adelaide for between $35 and $45 a kilo. I put Frosty's in a big zip lock bag in the freezer cos it's a bit smelly other wise. Makes her very attentive any time I open the freezer.

    If you want to encourage "eat right now", put the bone or food down for 5 minutes of supervised time, and if she leaves it, or carries it off to bury - take it away and try again later like an hour before dinner or instead of dinner or other meal.

    I think you first have to take the dogs size into context...Dog bones relative to dog size. Spines are also great bones to give to dogs, especially large dogs and beef spines. there will be nothing left and they love them. A large dog would just gulp some of the small bones...So check your dogs size. Also a small dog can have the large bones and not do damage to their teeth as they cannot even crush them, again relate bone size to dog size.
    My dogs can crush any size bone, they have huge jaws. I prefer not to give them weight bearing bones from lamb, pigs or beef as they do splinter. But if they were the only bones I would give them those and just remove them when they get the heads off, I ditch the shafts. My dogs all time fave right now are pig/lamb pelvis's. Our little rescues get the large shaft beef bones.they love chewing on the heads and cannot do any damage to their teeth, too small a mouth's for those huge bones
    Pets are forever
