Default Smell of cooked goat meat scares my dogs?

This morning, I decided to cook some goat meat for my dogs. Suddenly, they both started to freak out, sniffing, hiding and all kinds of weird behaviors. I got Dexter to calm down, and he's fine now. But my older dog is scared to death? Has anybody else ever had that happen? It's definitely the smell of the meat, there's nothing else going on.

This is my first time cooking goat meat, and while the aroma is definitely not to my liking, it doesn't make me want to hide behind the couch.

I saw your post and thought of this:


Apparently its a common thing with lamb, so goat doesn't seem too far off either?

That video is so weird.

I googled it, and most people say that the dog was probably treated badly while somebody was cooking that particular food, blabla.... Definitely not the case here for either dog. I haven't tried to feed it to them yet, it would suck if they hated goat. Pretty pricey, and nobody else would even touch that stuff in my house.

Lamb based food makes dogs stink, too!

Oh how funny. Juno doesn't really like Lamb for some reason. I don't know why. Anytime I give her any lamb based products, she tends to stick her nose up at it.

Once I brought home some goats legs for her to chew on (with the hoof on), but she balked at that too and refused to eat any of it. She buried it in the garden and I never saw it again.

It could be the strong smell, I never liked goat. Tried it once and spit it out!

Are you sure they were scared and not excited about the smell??? Despite what everyone said which is unanimous. That's what came to mind for me when I first read your post :P
