I know most here are looking for higher meat-to-bone ratios, but what if you wanted the opposite?

What breeds and harvesting ages should I look at if I want less meat and more bone?

The worst breeds for meat would be britannia petites and himalayans ;). But if you wanted one specifically for thick bone, flemish giant, french lop and holland lops tend to have thick bone.

I think Checkered Giants have the tendency to first grow a big bone frame, and fill out later.

Hahaha

Yep! Bigger and thicker bones would make better dog food for sure!

So best bet would probably be one of the giant breeds taken during their awkward gangly stage.
