It isn't recommended that dogs be fed table scraps on a regular basis because it seldom contains the proper nutriments a dog needs. Too much fat, salt, sugar, etc. can actually be detrimental to a dog's health. A puppy should begin eating puppy food (guaranteed to have sufficient nutritional ingredients for healthy growth of bones, teeth, etc.) once the puppy has been weaned from its mother. It can graduate to adult food at about one year of age.
