Food & Nutrition > Question About Bones

Cooking bones does change them a lot. They become harder, drier, and more likely to crack and splinter.

I can hear the difference when Farley eats raw bones. They "crunch" and "pop" instead of cracking. It sounds like he's eating popcorn or raw carrots, even when chomping down on a piglet or rabbit skull. Most raw, non-weight-bearing bones are quite soft.

I do give him raw weight-bearing bones sometimes, but only when they are covered in meat and I take the bone itself away before he tries to consume it, because they can sometimes break or chip teeth.

He never gets cooked bones of any kind.

Zombie, this is not the raw feeding area of the forum, so here you are going to see many people who feed kibble who have happy, healthy dogs that are at a fine weight. I choose to raw feed but I respect other people's decisions to feed whatever they feed, without making generalizations that all kibble is evil and horrible. We all want what is best for our dogs and we all do what we can. If you'd like to talk more about raw feeding, I'd suggest hanging out in the raw forum.

Poor Nare hug

He has been lunged at and hurt by another dog on a lead. So now, he may get anxious and think the same thing is going to happen when any other strange dog comes near him, especially since he is trapped on a leash. Keep in mind he might also still be in some pain.

You might consider starting some counter-conditioning with him to change his fearful/defensive reaction. You need to get him to understand that seeing other strange dogs = good things, not pain and bad things.

Farley was pretty leash reactive at one point, not sure what caused it. He's never been attacked by another dog but it got to the point where he was lunging and barking at almost every on leash dog we saw on walks. Counter conditioning really did help a lot. It took consistency and persistence but now every time he sees another dog he trots nicely by, eyes on me with relaxed body language. It has just become a new natural response for him, so I'd say that would be a good route to try with Nare.

Good luck!

ETA: I hope the owner of that Mal realizes that they will need to work with their dog or muzzle it as well. Bringing a dog that lunges and bites close to other dogs is not right.
