Should you feed you dog table scraps?

It’s a rare dog that will put his nose up to a well cooked table scrap.  Should you really feed you dog things that you can’t or shouldn’t eat like the fat off of a piece of meat that ends up as a table scrap? First, lets consider problems with table scraps.  If you do decide to give your dog table scraps, you must watch for bones and never give your dog things that they shouldn’t have like chocolate cake. I’m sure that you could finish that yourself. Portion control is also important. Table scraps should be a measured amount along with a daily balanced diet of regular dog food.  You don’t want your dog to become overweight and unhealthy right? Then watch the table scraps that you feed him. It’s OK if you give your dog a nutritious table scrap every now and then.  You could make this a reward in your training routine.  Just don’t make a habit of it or your dog will be under the table begging for scraps all the time.

Remember, your pets count!
