I chose always, because it was the closest to the truth. Generally I give my dogs some of what Im eating, even if its only one bite. However, if they have been bad recently, like stealing food when Im not looking, they don't get any of that meal.

As for what kinds.. all kinds that aren't known for causing problems. Even things that most people would be like umm you cant give your dog that, I do. My dogs stomachs are used to this, so they dont get an upset because of that.

Raw fed here too.. not sure if that is considered "human food" though.

But.. I do have a question..

Does the popcorn Stark and I just ate together count as human food? Clearly he thinks it was made just for him..

I do it here and the dogs KNOW not to sit and stare at us during meal times. They go and lay down and wait until I tell them I have something for them.

It's not every meal and it could be anything from pizza crusts to leftover meatloaf (if there IS any leftover).

Yup, 9/10 times we save him a bite at the end of our meals. Except tonights supper, I'm having a baked tater and put salsa on it so no sharing tonight!
When my MIL visited she made dh some soup - mommy suck, Oz was watching her in the kitchen she asked what he was doing I said, waiting for a piece of what you are cutting up. She says he eats carrots? I said yes and he'll have some of the potato and turnip you are cutting up too!

I only give a dog/cat/etc.. human food if it's not been spiced up or covered with strange stuff.

Last week she got some steak. I had my gf cook it without spices and stuff so that I could give some to the dog.

I am just glad that other people give their dog left over pizza crusts. I thought I would hear about it for that.

We will occasionally give them leftover meat - steak, pot roast, chicken if it doesn't have a sauce or lots of spice on it. They have to wait patiently til we're through with dinner though. No begging allowed.

my dogs kibble is normally mix with something. every now and then
we'll give him his kibble with warm water. my GF thinks we should
feed him his kibble plain sometimes just in case we have nothing
to add to it.

my dogs kibble is mixed with some of the following:

> cooked boneless and skinless chicken breast
> raw ground beef
> raw chicken backs
> rice, quinoa, millet
> raw eggs
> organic yogurt
> sardines, mackerel, salmon (no salt added)
> fruit
> veggies
> salmon oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil.
> left overs depending on what it is (no seasoning)
> home made biscuits/treats.

Yep, Frag gets just about anything leftover that's safe.

Rockay always gets a pizza crust when we have pizza. He also gets a fry or two when we go through a drive-through. He's learned to love drive-throughs and gets excited when we drive up to one.
