You may have wondered if your dog’s food is good enough for humans to eat.
After all, if your pet enjoys tucking into your scraps from time to time, maybe it can work the other way around too.
One pet company is offering someone the chance to taste test their pup’s dinner – and get paid for it.
The successful candidate will receive £5,000 to eat a vegan dog food diet and nothing else for five days.
There is still time to enter OMNI’s competition before job applications close on May 31, so don’t wait around.

The chosen person will have to record their experience, reporting back on the food’s taste and how they feel when carrying out the challenge, such as energy levels, mood and bowel movements.
OMNI’s plant-based dog food contains sweet potatoes, lentils, brown rice, pumpkin, blueberries, peas and cranberries.
Shiv Sivakumar, co-founder of OMNI, said: “OMNI is clean label, meaning that it doesn’t have any mysterious ingredients.
“While all dog food has to use human grade ingredients by law, many brands use cheap animal by-products and unwanted leftovers that humans would definitely not want to eat themselves given the choice.
“We firmly believe that OMNI is good enough for even humans to eat, and more importantly enjoy, that we’re going to put our money where our mouth is.
“We decided to recruit a human taste tester to prove just how tasty and healthy plant-based dog food can be.
“Me and the other founder of OMNI would even eat our products – and we’re sure many other dog food brand producers wouldn’t.
So, if you are looking to try out a new diet change and earn a little extra on the side, please sign up!”
As well as expenses to cover the taste tester’s food, a selection of recipes will be provided and access to a registered dietitian.
Applicants must be from the UK and be over the age of 18. The payment of £5,000 will be made once the five-day challenge is complete.
No qualifications are required for the job role, but applicants must disclose any allergies they have to ensure they don’t have a bad reaction to the food.
Job applications close on May 31. You can apply to be a taste tester on the OMNI website here.
