If you are going to give them a pound of bacon - probably not such a great idea. But, if you are cooking bacon for yourself and want to give your dog a piece - why not! If we are cooking bacon for ourselves, we often cook an extra piece and the dogs will split it. And if it is someone's birthday they will split a bacon cheeseburger. But, it isn't like they are getting it every day. It is an occasional treat!
I live where its really dry. We usually give our dogs a teaspoon of coconut oil every couple of days. When we have bacon which isn't very often. (maybe once a month or less) I will substitute a teaspoon of the bacon grease for the coconut oil. They love it.
