"Human" Dog Food

Dog Food that smells and looks like human food

OK, so those of us who have dogs -- we've all been there -- the bowl is full, but your pooch is sitting next to you, waiting to pounce on any morsel that that might fall on the floor.

For whatever reason, dogs want to eat what you eat, and will occasionally jump or reach to the the table to prove it. Clearly what's needed is a dog food brand that looks & smells like human good, so they'd actually want to eat it.

       That will just encourage the dog to want to eat the humans' food, because there is no longer a distinction between human food and dog food.

       Other than the fact that dogfood is made (partially) from the bits of meat they can't recover well enough to feed to humans, there isn't a significant difference. Compare a dinty moore beef stew to dogfood, and the appearance and smell are essentially similar.   

       Pretty sure the distinction between dog food and human food in a dog's mind is whether or not their human was eating it before they dropped it.

       // there isn't a significant difference //   

       Yes, there is. Human foods contain refined sugars, and lots of salt - far too much for dogs. Dark chocolate can contain enough theobromine to be lethal.   

       However, it's absolutely fine to feed a human diet to cats, and will not harm them in the slightest. In fact, it's good for them.

       The difference is in the price of course. So theircomp is correct.
