N Smith Our dogs will get a slice of bacon when we make it - its not part of their raw diet or anything LOL

When we make it for ourselves, whatever is left over is divvied up amongst the hoard! I will also tell puppy owners to take a small amount (1/4 of a slice) and after its cooked, chop it into teeny pieces and add that to a regular meal to use as training treats (also small amout of cheddar cheese and maybe a half a hot dogs worth of pieces.). The bacon smell gets all over the kibble making it smell more appetizing. Then they can use the regular meal as training treats without adding a whole schwackload of calories.

Sunflowers I would not feed any to a puppy.

I don't need to give mine a lot. I take a fingernail sized piece, the ham part, not the fat, and crumble it into his food.
Their sense of smell is a gazillion times stronger than ours, so that is enough for him to get the flavor without any harm.

wyoung2153 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.

shepherdmom 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.

ApselBear 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.
