Dürfen Hunde am Tisch mitessen? Eine Frage der Erziehung und Sicherheit

Are dogs allowed to eat at the table? A question of education and safety

Your dog's eyes sparkle as you eat, and his regretful gaze seems to follow your every move. An important question arises here: Should your dog be allowed to eat at the table? This is not just a question of nutrition, but also of education and safety. Let's consider the topic in more detail.

Nutrition: Safety first

There are a wide range of foods that are unsafe for dogs and can cause health problems, including chocolate, grapes, onions and garlic, to name a few. Table feeding can be risky if strict attention is not paid to what exactly the dog is consuming.

Parenting: Consistency is key

Allowing your dog to eat at the table can encourage unwanted behavior:

  • Begging : Once learned, this behavior can be difficult to break.

  • Food Aggression : Some dogs can become possessive over food.

To avoid these behaviors, it is advisable to be consistent and make it clear to your dog that eating from the table is taboo for him.

Tips if you want to give your dog something special

If you want to give your dog some of your food, follow these rules:

  • Healthy Choice : Make sure it is safe and healthy for him.

  • Not from the table : Give him the treat in his bowl or in his area to avoid begging at the table.

  • In moderation : Treats should only make up a small portion of your dog's daily calorie intake.

Conclusion: Love through care and boundaries

Love is also shown in setting healthy boundaries and making provisions for the dog's well-being. A loving “no” to unsafe or unhealthy foods and maintaining good table manners promote a harmonious environment and healthy interactions.
