|I count on 38 pound Max to clean the soft stuff and eat part of the spine bone and then throw away about 1/2 the weight in vertebral bone. They make great hard to eat meals but will cost more because a lot of bone is thrown away.
One time I did dissect the thing into individual vertebra. It is possible but not really worth it. Slippery meat, sharp knife, inexperience at cutting these particular joints apart - rather not do it again! Max still didn't eat it all if I am remembering correctly, that was a long time ago.
A whole ~one pound pork neck bone would contain enough bone for Max for a week and your little dog for several weeks, you don't want him to eat all that bone at one time. I guess if you like you could pick it up and offer again every few days along with boneless meat and organ if he is really enthusiastic about the neck. Max is spoiled and won't chew on already chewed bones!
I would not give Max or 18 pound Ginger the cut up bits put on trays and wrapped up. They could take them into their mouth so they crunch rather than tear and nibble and could be a choking hazard and the cut edges are very sharp.
