Can a pup get hurt chewing sheds? Like splintered bone in their belly?

Never had an issue. just make sure its a solid one. Not all cracked and falling apart. My dogs love them. If you're lucky, they will get used to the scent and start finding them! :tup:

That's kind of the hope. Thank you for your response.

My dog has been chewing sheds since she was a pup. I trained her with them, and the first time out she found a shed completely on her own. I was one proud papa! To this day, she only gets to chew on deer and elk sheds. I cut the elk sheds into manageable sizes.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I was also thinking of giving her a grouse wing and rabbit foot o chew on as well, for the same purpose.

My guess is that your pup would devour grouse wings and rabbit feet, and the small/splintery bones could be hard on their system, so I would be cautious.

I played with grouse/pheasant/quail wings with my dog (tied to a tennis ball and played fetch and hide and seek), and let her carry them around but wouldn't let her eat them. It definitely helped with the scent recognition and feel of feathers.

Great idea! I thought about the concern over the fine bones. Now if I can only spot a grouse in a tree.....

Well I've learned alot of things about dogs with my wallet at the vets office in the 40 years I've owned them, I'm at 30 plus dogs now, About the time you sayto yourself " Oh what can it hurt" it wheels around and your dog is in surgery to remove a foreign body from the guts.I quit being nice to mine with anything other than dog food or milk bones along time ago.
