this is good advice

however, most dogs easily eat chicken bones also by crunching them up, if they are given chicken bones right from an early age onwards.

all my dogs these last 30 odd years have always happily eaten chicken bones whenever chicken was made in the house - of course the masala bits and pieces need to be washed off before the bones are given because salt and masala is not good for dogs.

when we lived in the hills my dogs used to regularly catch jungle fowl etc and eat them up, feathers included.

lets not forget they are genetically programmed as predators so instinctively they know what to do.

Cook the big beef bones which you get for 20 or 30 bucks. Tell the shopkeeper to leave a little bit of flesh on it and break the bone into half. The corners of the bone should be tender when cooked which the dog can scrape and nibble on. If the entirebone is hard he wil lose interest in it very soon. In local terms i call that kind of bone as Nalli bone. These bones are huge, nutritious (has lot of calcium in it and also cleans the dog's teeth) and safe for the dogs. A pup cannot break it open but will keep trying to break it. Hope you got what i said.


This will end the chewing of furnitures etc problem. This also makes the dog learn to chew and eat the normal food also. Labs are greedy eaters and swallow most of their food than chewing it.

Also raise your voice while speaking to him if he has done something wrong. Let him know that you are angry. Correct him only if you have caught red handed. For example - if he has pooped in an incorrect place and you get to know about it after quite sometime and you try to correct him then, he will not get to know whats the reason for you to correct him.

Dogs understand actions better than verbal. So make sure every coomand of yours should be accompanied by a particular action. Let it be repetitive.

Hope this helps.
