Default Bananas?

Does anyone else give their dogs bananas? I'm curious if anyone else's dogs are banana crazy! Riley is my first dog out of the bunch who doesnt like them. I've caught the others sniffing them out and begging for a piece when we are eating them. Is this weird? Should we stop allowing them to have some? or is it okay. Everything i've searched on the matter, bananas arent even on the list of good or bad.

Opinions?

I think bananas are one of the fruits people are supposed to eat in moderation when they're on the diet because the sugar content is high. Other than that, they're a good source of potassium. Have no idea how that applies to dogs.

I use banana chips as treats. They last a long time in plastic containers, and cost $1.29 a pound. Needless to say that's a lot for dried banana chips!

Arlo has been fine.

I had a bitch who would do anything for a piece of banana. For any banana holder, too.

Kai used to love banana chips! I do not know of any banana rated problems. However, as with any treat use sparingly!

Akira loves apples....my SO eats them a lot and she knows the second he's eating one. He lets her nibble off the core and she's great about not biting more then the edges of the remains off. It's pretty impressive.

I'm sure everyone knows this but I'm going to be naggy mom for a second-
Be careful for apple seeds they contain Cyanide.

Back to your regular programming, and I can't wait to go home and see if Shenzi likes apples/bananas!

Right, bananas are a weight builder, not a diet food. Grapes are the same way....FULL of sugar.
