Do you feed your dogs from the table?

Cute!

But no, my dogs are strictly forbidden from being around the table at mealtime. I do let them have left overs, but only AFTER we are done and only when I am in the kitchen. I feed them there not at the table. I hate throwing food away, so I figure as long as it's not something that will make them sick (I wouldn't give them a bunch of bacon for example) it helps stretch out the dog food some and I'm not wasting people food either.

NO WAY! Feeding dogs from the table was strictly forbidden in our home. Dogs eat food in their dish. However, dogs may hang out under the high chair, for clean up duty.

LOL. That was great!
I did know a lady that would cook for her dog, put the food in a plate and set the plate on the kitchen table and let her dog eat with her. Then she would promptly take the dog to the bathroom and brush its teeth.

That video is great. But no table scraps for the dog. Keeps him from begging. He has his food and I have mine.

He he he he! I'm impressed, those dogs are very well trained

But no, we don't feed Shep at the table, he doesn't even get table food. He lies on a cushion near us during mealtimes, and when we're done clearing the table he can wander underneath to clean up

No.
No people food ever.
No begging at the table.
And get the hell out of the kitchen.

No. Macie eats her food from her dish. Which is outside. Exception is made if we have leftover salmon. But it still goes in her dish and put outside weather permitting.
