Can someone provide me a list of human foods that are good/not good for dogs? I want to make some homemade dog treats for my pack, but since I'm new to the homemade world I don't want to give them anything that's bad for them.

Thanks! wave

Hmmm, well here are the good foods:
Potatoes (mashed but neveerrrr fried)
Sardines (yummy when mixed with rice)
Tomato sauce
Rice mixed with chicken breast (no skin, two tsps of gravy mixed in)
dancing Apples (HAVE TO BE PUREED and mixed with something)
Spaghetti noodles (yummy when mixed w/ canned tomato sauce or two tbsps corn oil found in canned sardines)
Corn (it's ok)
Butter (only 3 tbsps at the most, I like mixing butter with chicken, rice and other kinds of meat when necessary but mixing it with vegetables is good too)
Pork (only a little bit, maybe mixed with a soup along with a viand and delishhh soft rice and a soft veggie preferably potatoes,squash et al.)
Cream (TAKE PRECAUTION,ONLY A LITTLE BIT. ok to have HALF A TBSP mixed with spaghetti noodles, veggies or meat)
Sweet potatoes (yummm!)

Hope I helped wave

What about milk? Some recipes I've found call for milk.

some dogs are ok with dairy and some are not - try a little amount and if your dog accepts it then I think its fine.

My dogs get some cheese in their food every day to build up their acceptance to dairy. They also get a daily pill that I wrap in cream cheese. They also get yogurt on a regular basis so mine are fine with dairy.

What do you mean- this isn't my- couch?

Why do the apples need to be pureed? Clubber takes a quarter of my Granny Smith whenever he can get away with it. Is that bad? Also, he loves watermelon of all things.

Clubber, fruits and veggies that are not either cooked or pureed are not really digestible for dogs. They may enjoy them, and have little or no trouble with them, but they don't get a lot of nutrition or calories from them.

So if it's part of your dog's diet, rather than just a treat, cooking or pureeing is important. But if it's just a treat, it's a good thing that they get to enjoy them without getting calories from them. big grin

Can I chase it?!

Actually, garlic is fine for dogs. It actually helps eliminate bugs like fleas, and it can also help prevent intestinal nasties like worms and stuff. It's onions that are bad for dogs. They both contain the same chemical, but it would be VERY hard for a dog to get ahold of enough garlic to be dangerous at all.
