Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

The raw bones are safe for puppies however you'll want to make sure they chew them up and don't just swallow them as that could be a possible choking hazard. If your pup is too enthusiastic and tries to swallow the bones without chewing then you might start out by holding the chicken wing while they gnaw away at it. Eventually they should get the message and you won't have to hold it for them long term. I always recommend close supervision with puppies and dogs that are just starting out on raw.

Wow, I see this never got answered. Yes, you can buy raw chicken wings just about anywhere and feed the whole thing (meat, skin and bone). Just be sure to buy them un-enhanced. Some packages of raw chicken are enhanced with sodium which you don't want so try to avoid those. If you can't find un-enhanced chicken then at least give it a good rinse or soaking with water before feeding to get the excess salt out as much as possible.

I definitely need to start taking care of Roxy's teeth. We have been relying solely on the rawhide to help keep her teeth clean, but when we got her she already had some serious issues with her teeth. We're going to try and get an official teeth cleaning soon, but need to institute a regular teeth cleaning as well.
