I understand as an adult I can feed him ribs, and beef knuckle to keep himself occupied for an hour or so just ripping away at the meat, but I imagine these to be too hard for a puppy, what are good recreational bones for a puppy?

 

Thanks.

Knuckle bones or any weight bearing bones aren't recommended for any dogs of any age. Those bones are very dense and bad to break the teeth of adults or puppies. I don't ever give rec bones. For puppies or adults, you can give antlers or pizzles. (Bull penis). Those are going to be your best bet for chews. 

 

For puppies I have given frozen pig ears as well. They make good long lasing chews and being cold they feel good on the teeth.

I get very worried with what my puppy eats, https://www.cleardog...lian-pigs-ears/ - Is this a good example of a good pigs ear that I should give my puppy?

I googled around and pizzles and pigs ears are full of fat, not something I prefer going into my pup, thanks though!

I'll stick to chicken drumsticks, wings and briskets. :)

Dogs get their energy from fat. It's something they have to have. I don't buy commercial pig ears, I get actual raw ones from the grocery.

 

Drumsticks and wings are fine, but if you are looking for a lasting chew, that's not it. Those are fed as part of meals.
