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.

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

JP Nelson

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Perfect seat cover- just what I was looking for

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.

Geeat fit, great product, great service

Got these much faster than other products I have ordered online. The fit is wonderful, even in my little Corolla, and the installation was really easy. Hair does NOT stick to these covers.I love them!


Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
