Knowing they are notorious for begging (and can give the most pitiful faces that say "I'm starving!") we came up with a way that works. While eating we keep healthy, low calorie treats on the table, and give our Chi a few of those while we are having our meal. This lets her think she is really getting something! So many human foods can cause health problems for dogs, especially small breeds. I will give ours some things. like a piece of green bean or a mashed up piece of carrot. The internet is a great source for info on what human foods are harmful and what is safe to feed them. Just remember if you love your dog you want them to live a long and happy life, so keeping them healthy is important. You may think you are "being nice" by feeding them tidbits off your plate, but in reality you could be shortening their life and the time you will get to enjoy with them.
