Holiday food for Dogs after dinner is over?

Published by at 2:04 am under Holiday Food

My boyfriend and I cannot agree on this. I know you should not be feeding a dog people food during dinner time, but I want to know if feeding our puppy a few small (like only a little bit) amount of Turkey after our Holiday dinner would affect his begging habits.

First of all he doesn’t beg. We do not EVER feed him from the table.

I feel that if we wait until we are done eating our dinner and everything is cleaned up, and then if we just put a few bites of Turkey in his bowl with his food, he will not beg.

Wait until after you guys are done eating and there is no food around. You don’t want ur dog to associate when ppl eat that he will get a treat. After the meal, wait a few mins and then give him the treat. Do it like you would his regular dog treats.

    We give our dogs a some turkey after dinner. You give it to them just like a treat, get them to do something before they receive it.

    As long as you put it in his bowl after you are done eating, it will not affect his habits at all. I give my shepherd table scraps all the time and she doesn’t begg at all, because the time between the table scraps and the treats effects her memory, so she won’t remember how i gave it to her, only the tast

    I wouldn’t give him more than a few bites since he is a puppy and you don’t mention his age, and he might puke it up. I dropped a piece of turkey on the floor, so I cut it up and put it in with my dogs food since I dropped it. I don’t see how this would cause him to beg for food. If he is a puppy, he should be in the crate when you are eating anyway since you are eating and not watching him, so he wouldn’t learn to beg. I guess it depends on how old he is, and if you think it will make him puke.
