    For my moderate - aggressive bone-chewing mutt I've had a bit of success with big, natural bones. She seems to get sorta bored when they are a few days old...they also get a bit stinky, so I wouldn't gnaw it either.

    My idea is this: Take those big, half-eaten bones and boil them. Once they're sterile (again) I could pack them with peanut butter (or whatever...heck, my crazy dog likes rye bread - go figure), then freeze them.

    Seems like that would keep the bacteria, germs, etc. at bay while keeping the poor hollowed out leg of a dead cow interesting to the mutt?

    Decent idea?

    no - please, please never ever give a dog a cooked, boiled, roasted or otherwise heat treated bone. they become brittle and can splinter, or cause intestinal impaction.

    if you want to fill a chew toy with goodies, get a few kongs. stuff them with something yummy like yogurt, canned pumpkin, etc. (but not just plain PB, it's way too rich to feed in large amounts) and then freeze them .

    as for the "stinkiness" of older bones, it's actually something most dogs very much enjoy. they generally prefer "ripe" stuff.

    You would get the one dog who doesn't like her bones ripe, BG. :p
