People Food in a Dog’s World

Good Dogs! (04-13-2015) #6036: Gayle Watkins discusses “people food” in a dog’s world — the importance of it in training when pieces of meat and cheese are high-value rewards; the misconception about a connection between feeding human food to a dog and begging at your table, when delayed gratification is actually easy for dogs. And dog’s need for omega-3 essential fatty acids in his diet, and the importance of supplementing with Nordic Naturals omega-3 fish oil — anti-inflammatory properties needed in pregnancy, puppy hood, and throughout a dog’s life.
