10 Human Foods You Can Feed Your Dog

By JennaDrady. | Dog Info

We all know there are some human foods we shouldn't feed our dogs, but what about the safe ones?

I don't know about you, but I love being able to whip up a snack for the human children, and pass some on to my dogs (who happen to be giving me the big blue puppy eyes every time.) Lets take a look at 10 human foods you can feed your dog, as well as the benefits of each:

Human Foods That are Safe for Your Canine Dog: CarrotWhat human foods are safe for my dog?

  • Carrots
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Peanut Butter
  • Yogurt
  • Pumpkin
  • Eggs
  • Broccoli
  • chicken
  • Apples
  • Cheese


My dogs love munching on carrots. And did you know that these paw-some orange veggies are not only healthy, but have great benefits to your dogs teeth as well?

Sweet Potatoes:

These make great treats for our dogs. My favorite thing to do, is cut them into thin slices, pop them in the oven at a low setting, and make homemade dehydrated sweet potato treats.

Peanut Butter - Yogurt:

I wanted to tie these two together because I will often make some frozen treats for my dogs in the summer. Simply purchase some plain, no fat yogurt, add a couple tablespoons of peanut butter, mix it all up, pour the mixture into an ice cube mold, freeze and voila!

Human Foods That are Safe for Your Pet Dog: PumpkinPumpkin: 

You might be surprised at how many benefits pure pumpkin has to offer a dog. Pumpkin is great for dogs who have constipation issues, as well as dogs who have soft bowl movements. Loaded with fiber, pumpkin can have a huge impact on the health of your dog.


There are a few different options when feeding eggs to a dog. Most people either crack a raw egg or two over top of dog food, or feed the entire egg (shell and all) to their dogs. Whereas some simply scramble up a batch of eggs. Either way you choose, eggs are a great choice for a healthy snack.


Any explanation needed? I think not.


Does your dog seem to have an upset stomach? Try boiling up some chicken (no seasoning) and putting in on top of a bed of white rice for your dog!


Aside from the obvious benefits of apple, this fruit also works well to help clean your dogs teeth. Simply cut into slices, and let them enjoy!

Human Foods That are Safe for Your Dog: CheeseCheese:

mmmmmm cheese. Not only one of my personal favorite snacks, but my dogs as well! Cheese can also work great as a high value treat during training sessions. Heck, you could teach me to do just about anything if you dangled a good piece of cheese in front of my nose! ;) So remember next time your chopping up some carrots, or broccoli, pass some down to your dog. He will thank you for it! Don't leave him out of holiday dinners either - make a plate of mixed veggies for him to enjoy being part of the family. *A little something to keep in mind: Always keep in mind that while there are some safe human foods you can feed your dog, they should still be given in moderation.   Himeandkodakiss, I'm Jenna Drady AKA HuskyCrazed "“ author and creator of I am a mother of two beautiful daughters and of course my 3 huskies.

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.


My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

My Doodle approves!

Received on time, fits great and easy to install. Color is a great match. So far, so good. Durability? Time will tell. It appears to be well constructed.

Fits my 2018 VW Tiguan perfectly

Very happy with our purchase. Fits perfectly, was easy to install and keeps the leather seats in our brand new vehicle perfectly clean.

Chris Campbell

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

This is my 2nd seat cover from 4knines and love them both. The product and service were both fantastic.


Repeat customer VERY satisfied.

We have made several purchases from 4Knines and are VERY satisfied with products (cargo liner, back seat cover, bucket front seat cover...). I volunteer at a shelter and take dogs offsite daily. Always a Pleasure doing business with 4Knines. Highly recommend.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
