This cannot be explained because there is not enough information out there to support anything! There have been very few studies of naturally wild canines and their daily life activities. The most studies that have been done are with domestic born 'wild dogs' that have only been returned to the wild after being raised by humans. Then humans just want to 'live' with them and 'become like the wolf'!Why does he terrorize the veggie garden in the yard on a regular basis?
Tomatos, sugar snap peas, and his personal favorite- spaghetti squash are never safe if he's on the loose.
I read all these posts about "your dog would NEVER eat veggies in the wild" from prey model raw feeders, and was wondering your thoughts on this. I also read from raw feeders that their systems can't handle veggies, and mine do just fine after taking on a round of spaghetti squash. For the record, I am by no means against this style of feeding, it's just not the way I feed.
If they would "only" eat meat in the wild, and can't "handle" these veggies, how then do you explain this behavior....?
We can only assume most things about our dogs that make sence to us. We have domesticated almost all canines in the world to where there really are not true wild dogs anymore!! But that is what happens when you put a human in the mix of other creatures, we try to figure them out so much that we end up changing the way they do things naturally.
I am sure that everyone else will pounce on this now that I have said all of this and will tell me that this is not true. My dog does the same thing where he will go out to the garden and pick tomatoes. He LOVES tomatoes!!
