If the oil is that tasty then it still makes the food delicious. I imagine it's like toast, boring without the butter When we got Boo it was my intention to give him everything in the world he would want to eat, but all he had was kibble. I was told not to worry, that some pets are like some people and they don't want variety. And he eats it because it is appealing to him. When I gave him one meal of £5 worth of fish he sauntered past it - he didn't even believe it was food.Liz! wrote:i think it's easy to try and believe it's not cruel because it Is so convenient. Who can possibly know? Only the dog. And lots of dogs try and get at any food that's going - maybe because they are so bored and crave something actually tasty!
And I know 2 labs who are fed dry food and you couldn't wish for better behaved dogs who have never ever snatched food. (Well, there was one occasion in 5 years involving some quality street ). They never "counter surf", never beg at the table and when the kids drop food it is left on the floor (They have like the opposite of the 3 second rule).
Considering I know that some dogs eat stones, and others think dog poo is delicious I'm not too worried about how awful biscuits must be to their tastebuds!
