We give Bandit, Lamb & Chicken burger added to his Royal Canine food three times a week for his morning meal. He loves it

Hmmmm... I don't think of the organ meat/whole rabbit that I feed as "human food"... at least not for this human! Yuck! Couldn't PAY me to eat it!

The beef and back when I was feeding it, the chicken... yeah, guess you could call it "human food". No need to be stingy, though, its just as much "dog food" as anything

I buy & cook chicken for them to add to thier kibble or I will give them leftover meat. I use steak, cheese or hot dogs for training. When I can I make liver brownies they love them. As a treat sometimes I'd give them frozen vanilla yogurt. Rice & chopmeat if loose stool.

Although I feed partial raw...I thought the poll meant feeding food that us skin folks were actually eating at the time, or left overs from meals we consumed.

leftover anything really. Beef stew, potato soup, chicken, turkey, pizza crusts, chicken papricka, spanish rice, spinach chicken, cheese, lunch meat, eggs, yogurt, beef, potato, carrots. Probably a bajillion other things I am not thinking about like apples, blueberries, etc.

My pup NEVER gets food that we cook for our dinner. Granted he will get cheese as training treats, but he doesn't get our "left overs". Neither pup does. They are allergic to corn so I'd rather not deal with runny stool and a beggin pup...

I always feed the 'human food' after he's eaten his regular meal, but I do give him scrambled eggs, yogurt, peanut butter, raw meats, brown rice sometimes. He LOVES sweet potatoes. I use string cheese, hot dogs and cubed chicken for training treats, as well as beef crunchies. I guess all the training treats are human food. But as far a table scraps, no I haven't given him any.

Skylar gets hotdogs, cheese, steak, cheerios and chicken for training.
No random human food, only for training sessions.
