I read that you were not to give your dogs chicken bones because they splinter very easily and can cause your dog to choke or rupture something inside of them. I'm pretty sure you can give them the bigger bones like pork rib bones. I just stay away from all of them to be safe. I also heard that onions are poisonous to dogs. I heard it on Oprah so it has to be true! Haha... I pretty much never give my dog people food to keep her from begging and I don't have to worry about what isn't good for her health.

Never give them any sort of cooked bones because they splinter and can cause major internal injuries as well as they do not digest these..Raw chicken bones are fine, preferably necks and wings because they have little bones and they are easier for the dogs to chew.

Chicken bones will splinter when they are chewed. This can puncture the internal organs and cause internal bleeding. They can also get stuck in the throat and choke them.

The problem is they can get lodged in the throat and choke the dog or splinter and injure it. You should really not give you dog people food in the first place, but especially if it's not used to it. Dogs can't handle rich food like we can. They can easily get pancreatitus which can be fatal. Also if you do a search on poisons + dog or got to the humane society websites, you can find a list of foods dangerous to dogs. There are a number of them including onions, garlic (yes, it is in some dog products) raisins, grapes, chocolate....
