Dogs are the masters of the guilty stare, especially when there's food around. While experts don't recommend dishing your dog his own plate of people food on a regular basis, we know it's fun to sneak a treat or two. And just like us, a little variation can be a healthy snack for a healthy pup. Fruit is a great sweet treat for your pooch – you can even stick it in the freezer before a walk or a visit to the dog park so there's a nice cold snack waiting at home.
But be aware that there are a few fruits and vegetables that aren't good for your furry friend. Check out our list of some do's and don'ts for safe snacking.
1. Bananas: Go for it. Just watch to make sure he doesn't try to inhale the whole thing and you're good to go.
2. Apples are fine as long as you core the apple first to get rid of the seeds.
3. Stay away from avocados. The fats aren't good for their digestive systems.
4. Blueberries are a-ok. You just might wanna stay outside for it though. Those things can make a mess.
5. A skinned kiwi makes a great tangy treat for this happy pug.
6. Get your pup to go to town on a lemon and that dog breath should clear right up.
7. Grapes are a no-no. They're no good for dog kidneys, even when they're in raisin form.
8. Large quantities of cherries can be unhealthy for dogs.
9. But once you remove the pit, peaches are a great snack.
10. If you don't like that hard core at the center of the pineapple, give it to Fido.
11. Strawberries are just fine, so long as they're not dipped in chocolate.
12. Little watermelon pieces, with the seeds removed, are a great snack. Freeze them lightly and they're perfect for chewing to relieve teething pain on puppy gums.
