Does your dog also love potato peels?

Everytime we peel potatoes, ur two dogs go crazy and want to have the peels! I have also seen some other dogs crazy about that, and wondered if that was a dog thing, but also why do dogs love it so much?

I have two dogs, and neither of them seem particularly interested in potato peel haha.. cooked or uncooked. I tried them with the last of my jacket potato a few weeks ago, and they didn't eat it then (though maybe they could not see the skin to it under all the chilli... or maybe the chilli was too hot! haha). I will try them with raw peel next time I am peeling the spuds and see if they are interested. Is it any good for dogs though??? I was reading a site that was posted on here a few weeks ago about what poisons your dog... my last dog was lucky to make it to 14!! haha. I fed her virtually everything that was on that list! haha. Cheers!

well I always wash the potatoes first, then peel them and then give the peeling to the dogs (not all of it just a bit here and there actually, I am not making their diner with it LOL) Not sure if it is good or bad but one thing is certain, they LOVE it here ;)

I don't think it is a dog thing I have never had a dog that ate potatoe peels. I had one dog who ate literally everything except raw celery [cooked like in soup he ate it] and potatoe peels.
