Do dogs hate garlic?
As it turns out, our canine companions have a good reason to stay away from the intense-smelling bulbs.
Garlic is in the Allium family, along with onions, leeks, and chives, all of which are toxic to dogs and can even fatally poison them in larger amounts.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
