    Magic is hesitant at something new to eat, he normally plays with it for a while, quite amusing to watch him in all honestly, he will flick it up in the air, bolt around to catch it, being generally stupid. The last time was with believe it or not Roo Weiners. He didn't have a clue what it was..had a dumb, dufus look, what do I do with this thing??

    As suggested to you already, chicken necks are great, he has them every second day, doesn't hesitate to eat them and they are Great for keeping teeth clean as they actually have to chew which is something Labs rarely do, it's normally gulp lol

    dentastix come in different sizes for different dog weights - I imagine a small dog eating a large dog's dentastix would be getting too much of it. My dog has limits on what she can eat of various things.

    Eg I can give her a rawhide chip (about 3cm x 15cm of rawhide) but if I give her one of those bone rolls of it - they don't last much longer than the little bit but really give trouble at the back end. Ie a little bit is ok. Lots is bad. And this would be in proportion to the dog's size (among other things).

    Any decent bone jack normally buries and goes back to a day or two later. The only ones he eats straight up(unless he's really hungry) are chicken bones. Lamb shanks, which are what i normally give him don't get eaten for at least a day, they need marinating in whatever it is he marinates them in.

    Lamb shanks ??!!!.......i love Lamb shanks. I remember when they where like a buck or two each and we would smoke them at work for lunch. Mmmmm !!!

    Now some posh chef tossers on TV cook em up, charge a sheite load and the price goes through the bloody roof for them.

    And your feeding them to the Jackster ????....what times doggy dinner at your joint ??? I'm coming over !!!

    I'm pretty sure there are more than one size. Mums dog used to have them, and the ones we got for her where fine (she was about 17kg) until she decided to start swallowing them whole and choking on them

    Yeah I would drop the bone in a pot of boiling water and I would add
    some chicken stock to the water. Maybe the stock might be more
    appealing for your dog....

    blade steak and turning up nose at raw bones, hmmmm. I'm thinking your little dog needs to have it's meals cut back a bit if it can afford to be fussy.

    Have her skip a meal then feed her the bone for her next meal, nothing else, see if she is a bit more enthusiastic.

    Around here my dogs get fed no more or no less than what they need, nothing left in the bowl, all bones consumed on the spot. Anything left (not that there ever is) would be removed after 15 minutes then offered again at the next meal.

    Also getting a really big bone is great, but there is a thing as too big for the dog.

    Agree with putting the bone in hot water for a minute or two or smearing something smelly like warmed thru canned cat food to get the dog started on the idea of liking bones.
