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.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

George Linhardt

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
