Learn More About Dog Bones

The best chew bones for dogs help scrape plaque off your pup’s teeth and trigger your dog to salivate. The enzymes in their saliva help clean their mouth as well.

Bones and chews can also be great for distracting your dog. If your pup tends to chew, a bone will help keep them occupied for a bit and keep them busy. They’re also a great reward when your dog has a successful training session.

Not all bones are suitable for canine consumption, however. You should avoid giving your dog cooked bones from your meals—cooked bones can splinter and cause damage to their digestive tract. When it comes to dog bones, you should:

  • Always supervise your dog while they're chewing
  • Only give them bones that are bigger than the length of their muzzle to reduce choking hazard
  • Raw bones for dogs from beef are less likely to splinter
  • Look for rawhide alternatives if your dog has a sensitive stomach
  • Only let your dog chew on a bone for 15 to 20 minutes maximum per day
Check out our New Dog Owner Guide for more tips on how to make your dog thrive.

Milk bones are a meat-flavored treat that has a satisfying crunch dogs love. Their texture also helps clean their teeth and gums, and they are full of wholesome vitamins and minerals. If your dog has sensitivities or health issues, always study the ingredient list carefully and consult your vet before giving your dog a new treat.

Yes, as long as it’s from a quality source and given in moderation. Bone broth can be great for providing your dog nutrients like:

  • Collagen
  • Protein
  • Glycine
  • Glucosamine
Bone broth also helps to keep your dog hydrated. The best bone broth for dogs should have limited, high-quality ingredients. You can use the broth as a topper for dry food or as a savory snack. Always consult your vet before adding something new to your pet’s diet.

No. Pork bones—both cooked and raw—can easily splinter. If your dog swallows a small piece of bone, it can cause intestinal damage or blockage.

Chicken bones should also never be given to your dog. The best raw bones for dogs are made from beef. Petco’s dog bones and chews are the perfect option. Check out our Dog Care Sheet for more do’s and don’ts.

It’s not a good idea. Bones are a great solution for satisfying your dog’s chewing instinct, but if they start breaking off chunks to swallow, you should discard the bone. Our dog dental treats will make a great swap when taking the bone away—simply hold one out, and whisk away the bone while they’re distracted. Our soft and chewy treats will work as well.

Burying objects is a protective instinct in dogs to try and keep their valuable objects safe. Even though it’s completely natural for them to bury their bones, you may want to retrieve them to store in the fridge in between uses and keep tabs on them so you can supervise while they’re chewing.
