|Just wondering about opinions on this.
I have two dogs at home eating a stellar diet, and while they will eat just about anything I give them, they rarely ever get into things they shouldn't. They also don't pick trash/nuts/icky stuff up off the ground when we walk. They LOVE food, but they're not obsessed with shoving everything into their mouths.
I walk 3 different dogs during the week who eat low quality food (Nutro for 1, Purina for the other 2), and I've noticed that they are literally garbage disposals. I spend half the walk dragging them along because they're constantly stopping to eat something, and then prying their mouths open to get a lot of it out of there. These dogs shovel everything in their mouths from dirt, smashed berries, nuts, poop, plastic, and trash, and they seek these things aggressively while walking.
This behavior disturbs me. I've had to pry Zelda's mouth open before to get half a pizza crust or a cooked chicken wing that someone left lying around.. but not garbage and random seeds and nuts.
