A Terrible Human: Does anyone have any tips of how to break a puppy from eating random garbage? I'm afraid she'll eat something terrible and die,caught her trying to eat a nail once and she likes twist ties.


You should learn the "take it" and "leave it" commands. Any puppy training will cover this.

/Get some puppy training. The major pet supply places offer cheap classes.

simplicimus: Lollipop165: My dogs and cat LOVE cheese doodles. The go bonkers if they see me open a bag.

My cat loves bananas. Rice too. I have no idea where she gets that.

I had a cat that loved asparagus. No idea why.


We had a cat that looooooved spicy chips...it wasn't the salt, we tried giving her a regular chip once and she just took a lick and ignored it. But, if the Spicy Doritos ever came out, she would park it on my husband's lap and take a whack at him when he didn't share.

With our dogs, we have to watch any glasses of beer, the sliced fruit and cheese, especially pears, strangely enough, and if I leave any scrambled or fried eggs within striking distance, I can consider them gone, too.

Whatever you guys do, don't let your dogs eat anything with onions or chocolate in it. Those are poisonous to dogs.

My dog is truly an eating machine. I think Golden Retrievers are like that in general. We've got her on the raw diet, and she's as healthy as can be. She will eat almost any vegetable, except for raw carrots. She'll chew on them, but leave the remnants all over the place. The most interesting thing she can do is shell pistachios. She eats the nut and spits out the shell pieces.

Once she ate a bucket of compost. Not only did she get the runs, but she also got something called Tremorgenic Micotoxin Intoxication. Basically a bad acid trip for a dog, caused by mold on starch.

But tell us again, raw food people, how they should "eat like they did in the wild".

/dogs aren't wild.
//haven't been for thousands of years

Your wolf wants steak.

We had a border collie that loved tabasco sauce.
