Hello and thanks for researching this important question!
Puppies do a lot of chewing work with their "pin" teeth, and later on with their adult teeth...this impulse for chewing can go on well into the second year of life, and so needs a lot of support!
The cautions I have in regards XXXXX XXXXX are:
1) Puppies and dogs with sensitive digestive systems should be observed carefully for symptoms: diarrhea and vomit. Do not use rawhide with dogs that are unable to properly digest them.
2) Choose the best-quality "Compressed" bones that you can...for a cocker spaniel puppy, use a 6" or 8" size so that she does not wear it down before her teeth and gums are properly conditioned.
3) Remove chews once they reach a two-inch length to prevent swallowing and choking hazards.
