Dog owners love to spoil their pups. When those cute puppy-dog eyes beg for the snack in their master’s hands, it can take a heart of stone to deny them. But dog owners also want to make sure they do not feed their pets something harmful. In this article, we will review the people food and snacks you can share with your dog.

Unmarinated, No-Spice Jerky
It should come as no surprise that dogs love eating jerky. They love to dig their teeth into a delicious hunk of meat. But there are some things you should know about feeding jerky to pets. Dogs should not eat jerkies that are too heavily marinated or spiced. For that reason, you should not feed many common jerky brands to dogs. Instead, you can either look for a brand with lower or no amounts of spice and marinade, or you can make the jerky yourself.
Similar to jerky, so long as the popcorn is as plain as possible, it can be a great snack for your canine buddy. Leave the salt and the butter in the cabinet and enjoy a movie night where the two of you can munch on a snack together.
