So cute! Bentley would have swallowed that before it hit the floor, but he'll eat anything

Bear is the same way. He's all like, "Mom has something in her hand. MUST BE FOR ME! Mom! Drop it! Mom! Here, I'll help you." *snatch*

Though, he's getting better about not snatching things.

I have Jeffrey trained now to leave, i can leave food or a treat on his paw and he wont even touch it until i tell him its ok. But we gave him a piece of sweet potatoe raw, and he was ok with it but not with the Broccoli haha he eventually eat it but only after 1 hour!

Have you tried giving him a slice of apple yet? My dogs think it's a special day when they get apple!

no not yet, i was afraid of acid or what it might to do him, he is only 4 months now and just changing his food. i know they give apples to lions to clean their teeth i may try it eventually.
I heard also that you can put a banana in one of those congs and they go crazy for it!

I've been giving Bentley apple since he was 7 weeks old with no problem. I stopped giving him banana because he got loose stools from them but the apples don't bother him. I think I could teach him to drive a car if apples were involved

It is funny how these dogs will eat branches, leafs, rocks and even wedding rings but you put something down which is good for them and you get the head tilt like what's this stuff? Cute video!

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.
