I empty my ice in my dog water often in the summer. Never had a problem.

I've heard they can crack a tooth, just like a person. I still give my lab one now and then.

If that's the case, I guess no bones for your dog either?

Never heard of a problem, mine get ice, bones, etc

My brother is in the ice business. His CBRs get a 16 lb bag a day in the summertime. They do fine with no problems.

There was some bs story going around that it was dangerous to give them ice. Like I said bs. But just realize that if the dog is hot and you give them ice they may vomit. When their stomach cools too fast, it causes the vomiting. I give mine ice all the time but just cool water while running.

Mine eat them like they are going out of style. Even the French Bulldog joins in.
