If you've ever parented a pup, you know each dog has his or her own personality and they shine in their own special way. Some dogs wouldn't wait a second before burying themselves in a bag of kibble, others would stay a mile or two away.
Much like humans, dogs also have their own food preferences. If they could, they'd Netflix and chill on the couch with a bag of chips and a couple of doggy-safe pizzas, but that's not going to happen.
Although it would be awesome to Netflix and chill on the couch, know that pizza and chips are just as unhealthy for your dog as they are for you. Also, garlic and onion are toxic to dogs.
As a responsible blogger, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that some foods, like grapes, garlic, onion, chives, chocolate, and extremely toxic to your dogs, so please keep an eye on what your dogs eat. Other than human foods that are toxic to dogs, safe foods are healthy as long as they're eaten in limited quantities or in moderation.
Coming back to the nine dogs on today's feature, you're going to learn that dogs love human food, even human foods that humans hate! #9 on this list is all of us every single day.
"Ice. I discovered this when the ice machine spilled all over the floor, and my golden retriever went berserk. Now every time he hears the ice machine, he comes running."
"My border collie lives for pickles. I too live for pickles so sometimes I wonder if I'm to blame for this."
"My dog Seamus loves sandwiches. He will start whining every time we pass a Subway.
I think he can smell the bread."
"Our dog Mitzi has a thing for dried bananas. When we go camping, I put them in our trail mix and I have to buy a whole extra bag of dried bananas just for her; otherwise she will be trying to get into our trail mix the entire trip.
Oh, she also LOVES steamed broccoli. That's a weird one."
"My dog Minty (RIP) used to go crazy for carrots. Cheese? No thanks. Meat? Meh. Carrots?
"When my Westie was a puppy, my mom would spoil her by putting bacon on top of her kibble. Fast-forward six years, and she will not TOUCH kibble without bacon on it.
The weirdest part is we had to switch to turkey bacon for her health so yeah, my dog is now fancier than me!"
"Raw spinach. If anyone is eating it, she will put her head on their lap and just groan and groan until they cave."
"Our dog Larry loves lettuce, avocado (which I think is actually bad for them), cream cheese, and smoked salmon. All in all, she has very healthy tastes!"
"I mean...everything? Yeah. My dog has a strong preference for all food."
It's great that dogs love food, I mean everyone does, but as responsible pet parents, we must keep a close eye on what our dogs consume.
Not everything that's safe for you is safe for your dog. Chocolates and garlic-infused chips may be the best binge-eating snack you could wish for, but they're extremely toxic to dogs.
Remember to keep your dogs healthy and away from obesity by not allowing them to eat table scraps or fatty foods. Let's be responsible!
