This habit is one of the more challenging to break. I mean, look at those big puppy-dog eyes! It’s OK to give your dog treats made for them or snacks you know they can eat, like carrots, sweet potatoes, and blueberries. But, remember to do your research and don’t feed them whatever you have on your plate.
The main reason is that the food people often eat unhealthy for dogs and can even be toxic to them – think avocados, grapes, chocolate, onions, garlic, etcetera. There are probably tons of things you’ve fed your beloved pooch without knowing they were dangerous. Our meals often have sugar, salt, and fat that dogs don’t need. Plus, if you’re always feeding your pup from your plate, then they might stop eating their regular dog food and start begging.
Although we often find it adorable when our dogs look to us for a tasty snack, it can become disruptive and irritating.
