Do dogs hate squeaky toys?
They Squeak Because of Instinct.
The most popular notion is that dogs like squeaky toys because they appeal to a wild instinct to catch and kill small prey.
This explains why dogs tend to lose interest when the squeaker goes – the critter is dead, time to move on.
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.
