    Default Food. treats ect

    I was just wondering if honey dew melon. an egg on occasion. banana slices with skippy chunky peanut butter smeared on a few slices. yogurt and of course frozen green beans. if any of these things can be bad for an ebd?. I feed my puppy fromm's beef friaata veg. grain free now and learned here that frozen green beans were better training treats than cheese or vieana sausage. Now I am wondering if any of these other treats I give him are ok for him. My thinking is- ( which is not always accurate) that if it is good for a human than it must be ok for a dog. I do know that things like rasines and onions, grapes ,chocolate can be harmful to dogs but I am just wondering if these other previously mentioned things are ok? Thanks Hero

    Green beans are good treats as they do not add weight to the dog. I would be careful with the Vienna Sausage and hot dogs as they can chock on them. Banana, the melon, strawberries, blueberries, apple, peanut butter, egg, and plain yogurt are all good treats. There are others I'm just not thinking of right now. These make excellent treats to give and for training.

    Thanks David. No I cut out the hot dogs and vieana sausages. These which I listed are his current treats and snacks. I give him 5 - 1/4 slices of banana topped with some peanut butter in the morning and a few teaspoons of plain low fat but vanilla flavored yogurt. Then if I am having some melon. I will cut him a few pieces. Someone mentioned the green beans ( I forgot exactly who here I read that from) and he really likes them. I take a small bag each time we go out side. I need something to motivate him to walk with me at times. I used to hard boil him an egg in the morning but he started to only eat the yolk and play with the whites and get it all over the carpet so if I cook eggs for myself. I cook him one as well. over light and wait until we have eaten and then put it in a bowl for him.. Thanks I was just curious as to if any of these things might hurt him or not be good for him.. Thanks

    Lola ate a hard boiled egg every day for lunch while she was a puppy, and the egg shells for calcium mixed in cream cheese. But once we started giving her the yolk, she refused to eat the egg white, which resulted in a filthy carpet much like you described We stopped with the hard boiled and went to scrambled egg for her and made sure the yolk was mixed into all of the white, and that worked well. now we give a hard boiled once in a while, but each chuck of egg white must have some yolk on it for her to eat it.

    I do know NOT to give my dog lunch meat (mine was turkey). It's the one food I've found that he will gag back up & make a mess on the floor with. All the treats you're doing sound great! I need to try some that you mentioned!
