Do pet food companies influence us with marketing and propaganda? You betcha. I think feeding a dog an all-dry food diet is a good way to shorten it's life. I feed my dog as much human food as possible, fresh organic raw chicken and bone (finely ground), sweet potatoes, egg yolks, apple, and green vegetables. When I have good wholesome foods leftover from a meal, I have no problems giving them to my dog.

Isn't it EXPENSIVE to feed your dog fresh food? Meaning dogs eat more than we do and you know vegetable aren't exactly cheap.

Id go broke if I fed my dog fresh foods like that every day! He does well on dried food. Very energetic and happy.

my dogs always seem to live above their breeds average age on dry food only. Also my current dog wants nothing to do with human food. I try and give her those things you named and she picks them up, then spits them out and walks away. Its the silliest thing haha.
