    This may sound strange but I have tried dog food. I owned dogs, worked with dogs and trained dogs thus, I was curious to see what their food tastes like so I tried some of the dry food. It is quite tasteless, hard, rough and ya ... just boring in my opinion.
    LOL @ HattieMattieMae - It's not that bad. Try it and you'll see. I lived ...

    This question just made me laugh and think too. Who do you think? For me, when there is an improvement in a certain dog food product, before a conclusion is to be made, they might be undergoing a sort of study or experiment. Let's say, when the dogs like to eat the new product much, then definitely there's is something improved in the food. Although this can't be concluded in just a day, maybe, the study is done in a series of days and see if the appetite of the dogs will change. smile

    We would like to think they bring in a group of dogs and observe how they eat the new and improve dog food. However, it's unclear who the real guinea pigs are.

    People test pet food! It may sound disgusting but people are actually paid to test the flavour and smell of pet food. Animal testers are of course also used but the initial tests have to be performed by humans. Dog and cat food is totally edible but because its not everyone's chosen meal time treat you can be paid pretty well to be a tester! Yum!
