Books by Tom Lonsdale and Ian Billinghurst were recommended to me by malamute people. Tom Lonsdale is the Raw diet (80-10-10 above) whereas Billinghurst also contains veg. I hope those might help
If the question is whether or not a dog can have an occasional bone, I think it's ok, although I do think that dogs who eat bones regularly 'learn' to digest them more efficiently. But if you wanted to give little Holly a small raw 'wing' now and then, it would probably be fine. Have you asked your vet about this?Is it alright to feed a bone to a dog that normally eats Kibble (Orijen Puppy)?
Beef, poultry, and others, though see my opinions above Be aware that if you get marrow bones, you may want to push most of the marrow out as it is very greasy and can give some dogs diarrhea if they slurp it all out. Eventually they may tolerate it better.What kinds of bones can you feed dogs?
Butcher shops for things like knuckle bones, supermarkets and green markets for others. My local farmer's market sells leftover parts for dogs like necks and feet.and where are the usual places to get them?
Not much, but bacterial contamination is a concern so you may want to put her outside with a blanket, or inside on a towel if she'll stay there, and then wash it afterward.How much mess do dogs usually make when they eat the bone?
If the bone contains raw meat it will eventually smell. There is a slight 'normal' smell too. If she really attacks the bone and is chomping pieces off, I would take it off her immediately. If she is slowly enjoying it, I would work your way up to letting her have it longer to avoid indigestion.When should I take the bone off Holly (eg, should she have it for an hour, a day)?
Will the bone smell?
This mostly comes from dogs who are power chewers (my dog was -- he could actually chomp his way through a knuckle bone) or eat too fast and swallow bigger chunks.
hmmmm..., Holly is a power chewer. She has to chew her edible chews until they are gone, even if it takes an hour she will not stop (not for a drink or toilet break, she just chews) unless it is taken off her. Although I have never (yet) seen any guarding behaviour from her. She managed to chew a piece off her first kong when she was 6 months old (it was a classic red kong, not a puppy one - she has a black one now)If she really attacks the bone and is chomping pieces off, I would take it off her immediately. If she is slowly enjoying it, I would work your way up to letting her have it longer to avoid indigestion.
