Hmm lets see. I know i have done a ton of research on this subject but i dont know where to start lol

If Dexter doesnt have an intolerance to chicken i would start him out with that since it is easiest to find. Maybe a chicken foot , neck or leg. if you go for the leg you can just pull the meat off if you only want the bone. You can also try turkey but the bone will be bigger lol

Dont forget that you can also try fish. My dog loves fish

Edited to add that whatever you get try to make it bigger than dexters mouth so he wont just gobble it whole. I've heard of dogs getting into trouble when they try to swallow a whole bone. Just thought i should add that. Good luck shopping!

get skinless chicken breast, and thighs. Start him with meat/bone only.

don't start with red meat it causes looser stool than chicken because it's richer and it will just scare you away from raw!

I agree with Kelly - get bone-in chicken breasts. Take the skin off at first, as it can cause loose stools in some dogs. Give him the whole chicken breast with the bone-in. I bet he will do fine with it. That's all you need to do for now. Just plain old chicken breasts with the bone. You can move on up to the other basics later. Just chicken for now.

I started mine out with cornish hens. They were just the right size for my chi's.

Oh yes, cornish hens are a staple here. They are by far, Brody's FAVORITE!! He eats one a week.
