Raw soup or marrow bones work great. Knuckle bones are also an option and provide hours of chewing happiness. Is there a butcher nearby that could maybe set these aside for you?
Relatively so. It's a high value item. To correct this, I simply present the dog with something of equal value, tell the dog to "Give" the other item while I replace it with the new item, and praise the dog.Is the agression when taking away common for bones? Advice to correct this?
Depends on where you're located and the size of the boneHow much are they?
You can, but I generally don't recommend it.Do I freeze them?
The good ones have meat, blood, and gristle xDIs there meat on them, or just bone?
Never be sorry for trying to educate yourselfAnd sorry for so many questions! How often is ok to give her one?
Although I doubt a puppy would chew hard enough to do so, some very aggressive chewers have been known to break teeth on harder (primarily beef) bones, which happen to be the weight-bearing bones. Just wanted to mention it as a general precaution.Why's that skelaki?
This is good advice.Although I doubt a puppy would chew hard enough to do so, some very aggressive chewers have been known to break teeth on harder (primarily beef) bones, which happen to be the weight-bearing bones. Just wanted to mention it as a general precaution.
I am SOOOO SOOO mad right now! I just bought a new back of the 7 in 1 dental sticks made by Denta Green and i'm going to have to return them.I use the non basted, sterilized "beefy knuckles" in my house. They last forever and they help with tartar AND keep your dog satisfied for hours. I dont let them have them when i am not around, as on very rare occasions they'll chew a hook on one and they'll bite it off. I also use a dremmel on the hooks they create so that they dont have the opportunity to break pieces off.
Also i love 7 in 1 denta sticks. I get mine at petsmart. They are kind of like greenies but without the allergens of corn, wheat or soy. My adult dog chews one in about 20 minutes, but my pup makes his last a good 2 hours. they are also WAY cheaper than greenies.
