Question

This is a newby question but what non-dog foods are safe for treats? I Feed large breed puppy food to the girls but would like to reward them with something other than dog treats or kibble once in a while. I like the idea of the strawberry mini-wheats (would never have thought of that myself as being okay for dogs).

I used to have a boxer that loved veggies especially onions... he used to pick them from the garden himself... never knew that was not good for dogs till this forum... so obviously I need some direction please..

Apples: Source for potassium, fiber, phytonutrients, flavonoids, vitamin C. Note: Do not give dogs the core or the seeds, which contain arsenic. (Half of an apple slice is a good size treat.)
Bananas: Source of potassium and carbohydrates. (1 inch is a good size treat.)
Blackberries: Source of antioxidants (anthocyanins), polyphenols, tannin, fiber, manganese, folate, omega-3. High in vitamins C, K, A and E. (2 or 3 blackberries is a good size treat.)
Blueberries: Source of antioxidants, selenium, zinc and iron. High in vitamins C, E, A and B complex. (2 or 3 blueberries is a good size treat.)
Cantaloupe: Source for vitamins A, B complex, C, plus fiber, beta-carotene, potassium, magnesium, thiamine, niacin, pantothenic acid and folic acid. (1 inch of cantaloupe wedge is a good size treat.)
Cranberries: Source for vitamin C, fiber and manganese. Helps fight against urinary tract infections, plus balances acid-base in dog’s body. (2 tablespoons of stewed cranberries added to dog’s food is good size portion. Note: To stew cranberries, put them in a saucepan with water, cover and cook until tender. Put them through a sieve and add to dog food.)
Kiwis: Source of fiber, potassium and high in vitamin C. (A half a slice or one slice of kiwi is a good size treat.)
Oranges: Source for fiber, potassium, calcium, folic acid, iron, flavonoids, phytonutrients, vitamins A, C, B1 and B6. (Half of a segment is a good size treat. May cause stomach upset if fed in too big a portion. Remove the rind and any seeds.) Do no feed your dog any part of the orange tree—see below.
Pears: Source for fiber, folic acid, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, copper, pectin and vitamins A, C, E, B1 and B2. (1 or 2 pear cubes is a good size treat.)
Pumpkin: Source for fiber, beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, zinc, iron, potassium and Vitamin A. Note: Although you can feed your dog pumpkin seeds, most recommend feeding them to dogs unsalted, roasted and then grounded. Do not feed your dog any other part of the pumpkin due to the small, sharp hairs on the pumpkin stem and leaves. (1 to 3 tablespoons of pureed pumpkin [not pumpkin pie mix] is a good size treat.) Learn more>>
Raspberries: Source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, potassium, manganese, copper, iron, magnesium. Rich in vitamin C, K and B-complex. (2 or 3 raspberries is a good size treat.)
Strawberries: Source for fiber, potassium, magnesium, iodine, folic acid, omega-3 fats, vitamins C, K, B1 and B6. (A half or 1 strawberry is a good size treat.)
Watermelon: Source of vitamins C and A, potassium, magnesium and water. Do not feed your dog the seeds or rind. (1 to 3 pieces of 1-inch watermelon wedge is a good size treat.)


Peanut butter, cheese, plain yogurt, green beens, stuff like that, my guys also eat cottage cheese, with nuts you have to be careful and check to see if they are toxic. Almonds are not toxic but can be a hard thing to digest for some.

strawberry mini wheats, cheerios are not the healthiest snacks but yeah you can flip them a few over brekky its not going to kill them.

The link below lists things you should NOT give your dog.

Foods That Are Hazardous to Dogs | ASPCA

That said: I have been a firm believer if I can eat it so can my dog. All things within reason just like humans. To much of anything is not good.

Unless your dog has food sensitivities, feel free to share in a way that you feel comfortable with...JMO.

As we speak one of mine is eating every mulberry he can find in the yard. Robyn's favorite are peaches. I have a peach tree and had to put my fence up so that they don't fall in the yard because the pits are toxic. My oldest golden loves suckers. My oldest dog doesn't like anything healthy, but loves Cheetos. They like apples, bananas, watermelon, blackberries and strawberries. I make a fruit salad for them as a treat.

I caught Apsel snacking on our grapes the other day. The grapes are still green, hard and bitter lol He got a stern LEAVE IT and hasn't been back for more yet. His favorite treat, not necessarily sweet though, is cheese whiz bacon flavor.
