Can I give my pup bones

Perseus is 18 weeks. Can he have ham bones, knuckles, etc.... I don't know since he has some adult teeth, and baby teeth. I need to find something that he would be interested in and take time to go threw.

afaik , bones are ok for 3months+, but it must be cleaned well from the chicken's/meat's skin as the vet said, so just clean it well and give it to him , but take care because many people warned me about giving him bones , better just give him sth solid

I use beef, chicken, and lamb bones but no pork.

For recreational chewing I use knuckle and marrow bones, put them in the freezer to make them last longer. I don't worry about stripping the bones, neither of my dogs have ever had a issue eating the meat and skin off them

So a big beef knuckle should be fine? Should I freeze it first?

Sure, I freeze them to make them last longer. I'd supervise to make sure the pup isn't chewing off pieces or chewing too hard but otherwise let him enjoy it and relax in the peace and quiet for as long as it lasts

Thank you. I just need him to be good while I lift weights. It's hard when he jumps on ya and want so play during a heavy lift lol.

Try looking online for antlers. There are actually quite a few people on Etsy who pick up sheds and sell them for fairly cheap.
