|Max loves chicken backs, his favorite part of the bird. Why would they be worse than turkey necks? Big dogs can swallow even huge necks whole.
Beef ribs are great. Give a couple left in a rack for a super fun food puzzle. Max has to touch the ribs which is a big deal for him. Make sure they are long ones with the joint end so there is a good place to chew. Short ribs are cut at both ends and are swallowing hazards for some dogs.
Beef, pork and lamb necks are great if you get the whole piece that is usually shaped like a 7 and weighs quite a bit. Pork necks are about a pound. The vertebra make this mostly bone and I throw away more than half the weight so they cost quite a bit to feed. Since they are complicated with lots of bones and joints they are fun for dogs to get the meat out.
Shanks can be good. Usually they are cut too short to be safe to feed a bigger dog. Max hasn't a chance to get a lamb shank, they are MINE!
Some dogs, but not Max, like pig feet. Super chewy skin and they don't have as much fat as it appears. The white stuff is ligaments and tendons and such, not fat. They can be too small for some dogs. Appearances to the contrary have less bone than the turkey necks you have been offering already.
