Do dogs hate squirrels?
Many dogs do indeed chase squirrels on sight.
But such dogs likely won't pursue a little squirrel anymore than any other small animal.
dogs are indeed carnivores which share a good chunk of their DNA with wolves.
Chasing little animals for them is practically instinct.
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.
