Human Foods Dogs Can Eat

Thanksgiving is around the corner which means a TON of leftovers and under the table feeding is in our near future.  Mozart and I are super excited! 

Our hoomans are very particular about giving us just any type of holiday foods.  They say that there are particular human foods dog can and can not eat.  

Mozart and I have created a list of tasty Thanksgiving human foods that dogs can eat.  Feel free to share them with your pups.

Turkey: Yesdogs can eat turkey. Turkey is fine for dogs, but be sure to remove excess fat and skin from the meat. Don’t forget to check for bones; poultry bones can splinter during digestion, causing blockage or even tears in the intestines. Any meat with excessive salt, seasonings, onions or garlic should not be fed. Be sure to avoid leeks, onions, stuffing and gravy that may be in the base.  Dogs should not eat those food items.

Mashed Potatoes: Unfortunately, most hoomans make mash potatoes with garlic, butter, creams and spices that can be toxic to us huge hounds, so you want to stay away from them. Unless, your mom is like ours and prepares potatoes mashed with nothing in them.  Just potatoes.  (Hint hint moms and dads reading).

Vegetables: Bring them on!  Just make sure they are free of the stuff us pups can't eat (garlic, onions, butter etc).  Be creative by adding a variety of veggies like carrots, spinach, peas, pumpkin. Those are our favorites.

Dessert:Hmmm...  I think you know the answer to this one.  However, some fresh fruit we do enjoy and can eat.  Like blueberries and apples.  Please remember that chocolate is very toxic to us pups so keep that far away from us. For more treat ideas for the holiday, here for some of our favorite recipes. 

Human foods dogs can not eat: Grapes, raisins, chocolate, garlic, onions, macadamia nuts and avocados.  See the full list here...

We at HugeHounds want to wish you all our fellow Huge Hounds and their families a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving.  We are so thankful to have you in our community and loving us large breeds. 

Share your Thanksgiving with us at post your holiday photos here...

3 Tips On Finding The Best Fit Halloween Costume For Your BIG Dog

Halloween is a time of celebration and fun... and dressing us pups up makes it even more fun. As you probably already know being a large breed dog mom or dad, finding Halloween costumes that fit us big guys are non-existing.  We love that you want us part of the celebration and we have fun dressing up in the fluffy costumes, funky wigs and pumpkin-shaped ears but most of the time, the costumes feel tight and make us feel a little uncomfortable.
