Ever wonder what foods you can safely give to your beloved doggies besides the boring “dog food” you feed them everyday?
Most pet experts agree that giving your dog “human” is not advisable. Sharing our processed, high-in-sugar-and-fat-foods with our pets could lead to them developing serious health issues.
But are there any other foods that we eat that you can give them to spice up their meals? Luckily, dogs can eat a pretty wide variety of food, and in many instances, what’s healthy for us is also healthy for them (note: but NOT always).
There are plenty of foods that we can share with our dogs that are not only good for us, but good for our pooches, too. For example, carrots are one of the commonly known ‘people' foods that dogs love to eat and we can give them without worry.
Here are 10 unexpected ‘human' foods that are OK for dogs to eat, that actually are perfectly safe … and even healthy!

2. Peanut butter
Whether dogs can eat peanut butter or not is a question that remains on many dog owner’s minds. The truth is, dogs can eat peanut butter without worry. The quantity should be monitored and controlled because it can lead to an overweight dog if given to excess.
