I clicked "occasionally" and also "only if he doesn't beg"--not sure if both registered. Never at or near the table! You do that one time and you are doomed to being stared at during meals forever

I will add that he has to do something before getting any treat, even if it is just "sit".

Jake gets a raw egg yolk every now and then...I don't eat the yolk, trimmings from chicken and beef before it is cooked. Any left over protein really. I just add it to his kibble that day.
He does get string cheese and hotdogs for training....

I clean my refrigerator out every Saturday prior to going to the market, so I take the lid of the plastic trash can I keep the bags of kibble in and put all the food I want to clear out spread out on the lid and let all the dogs share the potpourri of goodies, all of my dogs share nicely and look so forward to this routine.

I think the poll meant when you are done eating dinner do you give your dogs the leftovers or throw the leftovers out. I am not sure because there were two titles to the poll-very confusing?? In that case, no we don't feed any leftovers to our dogs, but they do get as treats(not off of our plates)pnut butter,carrots,apples and oranges. My minpin is absolutely addicted to those little baby carrots and he goes nuts over oranges.

Zoey doesn't get too many "extras" because of her thyroid problem which leads to really easy weight gain. She does get SMALL amounts of leftovers (only like 2-3 bites at most. On rare occasions she is allowed to have extra "nono" foods. Like Saturday she was getting a bunch of doritos during our UFC party xD) and she gets chicken necks 2-3x a week to help with her teeth.

Chance on the other hand eats pretty much anything and every thing. xD He gets left over foods from meals (And like Larhage, I give him whatever is cleaned out from the fridge each week) and "healthy" extras like meats, eggs, yogurt, cheese, ect that I buy for "him". I also sometimes put a little vegetable or olive oil on his kibble. (Plus he gets fish oil daily along with a cranberry pill, vitamin E, ester-C, joint supplement and garlic pill each day) 2-3x a week he gets RMB (mostly pig feet, turkey necks, pork necks and chicken quarters) for dental health even though I do brush his teeth. Anytime we trim meats, he gets all the fat chunks. Does wonders for his coat! So yeah, my dogs eat quite a bit of human food.

I feed raw so they always get human food. Vala and her kids love fruit so I share that with then. I also give left over cooked veggies or meat scraps and then I use hotdogs, cheese, left over meat and stuff in training.

I give my dog human food all the time. My vet said feeding dogs a variety of food helps reduce the chance of the dog developing food allergies.

Cooked chicken, cooked beef, scrambled egg yolks, cheese of all kinds, yogurt, radishes, carrots, peas, squash, zucchini, strawberries, bananas, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, whole dates, peanuts, pretzels, popcorn, tuna...

Honestly, if it's not on my list of foods that are poisonous for dogs, they get to try it. Always as a treat, not as leftovers. I don't believe in feeding my dogs my leftovers because I love leftovers and want them for myself.

haha I clicked the wrong button I should have put occasionally.
Dodger and Molly get green beans, hot dogs, chicken, sometimes steak, and I haven't given them yogurt yet but I want to give it to them one time. other than that they get no other people food. I mainly used these items and high value treats. I can't give them cheese otherwise they get nasty runny poos. sorry for the visual lol
