  • Yep! They get scraps of meat if we don't finish it and it's not enough to save, carrots all the time, peanut butter in their kongs, cheese very occasionally (I don't give up cheese easily! lol), toast/rolls if they fall on the floor or get burnt, and pretty much anything that falls on the floor (not onions or chocolate of course!) I don't see a point in wasting food.

  • try not to. It's not good for their tummies.

  • I would, but she gets what I call swamp gas so bad it chases her out of the room. Rice and veggies are good for dogs, and raw egg makes their coats shiny.

  • No, if our Doberman ever gets a hold of people food he gets the poo squirts and we have to leave him outside all day because of it. We make sure he never has axcess to any kind of people food.

  • Yes. Just about every day, he usually gets our left overs mostly meats. I just can't imagine him eating the same ol dog food everyday He is sooo spoilt lol!

  • Not usually, no. If I have a couple of pieces of meat left over, I'll give it to the dogs. And one of my cats has been known to steal any food left on the counter, heh.

  • When we put our lab on a diet, we cut all people food out of both dogs' diets. That being said, they still get the occasional table scrap, if they're quick, if DD drops something on the floor when she's eating.
