Every time you and your family congregate to the dinner table, you always have one more guest roaming around looking for a few scraps.
Man's best friend is hardly opposed to waiting for one of the kids to drop a few morsels of food but more so those same children who might not want to finish mom's favorite meatloaf and instead opt to feed Fido under the table.
Parents, too, are just as guilty of doing it, thinking as though feeding the dog food from the table is harmless or won't be that big of a deal if you only do it sporadically.
The truth is feeding you dog table food probably won't do too much damage if it is done perhaps as a way to get them to eat their own food, putting a few chunks of ground beef on top of that Purina or kibbles and bits. While that practice hardly is horrific, dog owners might find themselves doing that far too often or just getting sloppy and lazy with how they feed their dogs as it relates to people food.
Aside from table scraps making it almost impossible for dogs to keep eating their own food, some foods are just flat out bad for your dog.
