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!

As with anything, in moderation. Definitely high salt content isn't the best thing in the world, but the occasional piece of bacon will do no harm.

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.

Yes it is ok as long as it isn't the primary part of their diet, lol. Moderation as others have stated. A piece here and there is fine.
