Hurmmm, there are quite a few threads around on obese dogs right now and how bad it is that their owners give them human food. Well I'm feeling a little guilty right now because I'm really bad for treating my dog AND giving her human food! How often do you treat your dogs? And do you give them human food? Is this really so bad, and if so why? Does it just depend on the food itself and how it's done? Like I guess it is much harder to do calorie/portion control for a dog if you are giving them non-dog food and I guess if you have a small dog even a small amount of treating can push them over . Also I suppose some people don't know about some food being toxic for dogs so it can be dangerous! Before I get told off completely Mia is a lean beast... on days where she has been treated lots (or I know we are going to do a BBQ or a roast!) I cut her proper meals right down.
