10 Healthy People Foods for Dogs

People often talk about foods that should not be given to dogs like chocolate, raisins, and grapes, but there are “human” foods you can safely give your dog. Here is a list of them. Make sure to leave salt and other seasonings aside and keep food simple when giving it to your dog:

1. Cheese

Cheese is yummy and protein-enriched. It is safe to give your dog some cheese unless he is lactose intolerant. Start by giving small amounts of cheese to check for reactions from your dog. If he is okay you can serve him low or reduced fat dairy products to minimize fat.
