    DefaultMarrow Bones ...yum...

    Gave my girls a marrow bone for the first time. Rush enjoyed hers as did Boo. However when it was time to take them away,
    Rush gave hers up easily, no surprise but Boo growled at me. I sternly corrected her and had my husband take her bone. No
    growling at him. Ever. He is her person, like I am Rush's. However, I don't want a repeat of growling when something needs to be taken away from her, what happens when he's not home? This is the first time in her almost 7 years that she has ever done it. I don't know if it was because of the bone being such a high value treat or what. They probably won't get them again as it gave Boo the runs. Suggestions please.

    No problem if they don't get them again. I would have taken it away from Boo even if she growled so she doesn't think she can control you with a growl.
    I stopped giving marrow bones to mine because Mitzi can't chew them at her age. Can't give them to the other three and let Mitzi watch.

    The runs almost always happen the first time they get marrow bones, but once their system has been introduced to it, it doesn't happen again.
    The growling...it happened with Java and her marrow bone.
    Once.
    I corrected her harshly and took it away.
    It hasn't happened since.
    Moka just drops hers for me.

    Marrow bones are great for cleaning teeth and I give them about twice a month.

    I don't give marrow bones any more - they are too hard for Abbey (she broke one of her molars on one). My dogs are not allowed to growl at me and both will drop their bones on command.

    Talking about growl ..how do you correct that? And how do you show them that they can not control you? I have this issue with Cassie lately.




    If dogs do not go to heaven, then I prefer to follow them where they go.

    Which bone is the "marrow bone" on a cow? I have to find it in Greek so I ask one for my butcher. Is there a cow's diagram that shows the bone structure? Sorry if it's a silly question but if I ask the butcher for a "marrow bone" I don't think he'll understand.

    The marrow bone is the part from the cow's 'knee' to it's 'ankle.'

    Make sure you don't get knuckle bones.
    You want the leg bones...femurs are good because they're big!
    Have them cut no smaller than 5-6" long.
