Our boys are spoiled…. but, this is not news to anyone!
I’ve read many articles, blogs, stories, etc, that tells us not to feed our dogs people food. I can understand a few of the issues with the theory. There are lots of chemicals and preservatives in people food. Not that there aren’t any in many dog foods.
In my opinion, drooling, begging dogs are probably the biggest reason folks don’t feed their dogs people food. It can also teach a dog that the human food marinating on the counter is theirs and just waiting to be stolen. My dogs have never tried, let alone they are too small to get anything off the counter top.
I, on the other hand, don’t like wasting food and give my boys left-overs when they occur. My meals contain very few chemicals, low sodium, gluten free and include a balance of good foods.
Today’s special: Pot Roast!
I mix the left-overs with their regular food. There’s no drooling dogs during dinner, as they don’t know they are getting human food until the bowls are put on the floor. However, shortly after being served, the bowl is quickly dispatched to their hungry tummies.
Breck taking down this bowl! That bowl didn’t have a chance… Empty in 10 minutes! Happy dog!!
