Not sure about Bare Bones, worried about what size is suitable? Here are my top tips.
1. Choose a bone that is approx. the size of your dogs head – Luna has a medium.
2. Supervise at all times.
3. I give a Bare Bone about once a week.
4. Resist the urge to help them! (i.e. scooping out the marrow). Allowing them to work it out helps cognitive function.
5. A great distraction for those times when you are busy or at times of stress. Dogs find chewing bones soothing, the endorphins released offer a sense of calm.
6. Our Bare Bones are quite clean – they are always centre cut (straight), they have meat on the outside and marrow in the middle.
7. Teach your dog to eat their bone in a specified place, on a towel or in their bed, for easy cleanup.
8. Dogs will lick the bone to begin with, then chew the meat from the outside, move to removing the marrow by licking and chewing, and finally gnaw at the bone. The bone is finished when it resembles a clean white hula hoop.
9. The Bare Bone will be a much cherished possession and offer a good training opportunity.
10. The Bare Bones can be taken away as many times as you choose, store in the fridge between sessions. The bones will be fine in the fridge for 3 days. When they arrive store in the freezer until you want to use them.
