Caesar the peke loves eating people food and will eat dog food if no one is looking
at him...If he sees he's being watched he will casually walk away. We buy him Blue
Buffalo and Wellness so it's good food but he seems embarrassed to be caught eating
animal food....Does your dog have any food quirks?

hes not embarrassed, hes smart, people food is much yummier and hes training you to give it to him.

my dogs ae now raw fed so beyond the resource guarding (they all get crated during meals for eveyrones safety lol) no real quirks
but when kibble fed my male would take 1 piece and throw it around the oom for an hour before finally eating it...I could never keep any weight on him because of it lol.

This isn't a cute or funny "quirk," this is the little dog's brain outwitting your brain and TRAINING YOU to supply him with people food.

I've got one that will take a mouthful or there abouts and walk away from the dish, drop it on the carpet...and eat it from there.

My other one, will take a mouthful and as he's eating, kibble will drop from his mouth, he will leave it there for the other one to "clean up."

LOL I had a cat that loved to play with toys, but if anyone saw her, she would get up and walk away.

My German Shepherd likes to eat when we're in the room. As soon as we sit down in that area, he will start eating and occasionally look our way. If we leave the area, he will leave also. He still eats when he's hungry, but I think he tries to time it when he knows we aren't doing anything he needs to see.
