Just wondering if any of you get bones from the butchers for your dogs to chew on. And if you do, do you cook them slightly or just give them to the dogs with the little bits of meat still raw? My family have always given our dogs bones but my mother used to cook them a bit so "the dogs wouldnt get a taste for blood"?! I could understand her anxiety as they live out in the country and numerous dogs belonging to our neighbours have wandered and then gotten shot by farmers because the dogs were "worrying" sheep. This still happens, my careless neighbours 2 dogs were only shot a few months ago after killing a few sheep. Im not worried about my dogs turning into sharks attacking sheep and theyre well supervised so the chance of them wandering off is non-existant. So ultimately my question is: Is it ok to give your dogs raw bones? Forgive my ignorance this is just something that always bothered me because I dont see the harm! But..... I could be wrong!
