|Clams are one of those things that dogs can eat, but there's really no purpose to it. It's not a natural food source for them, they aren't getting any huge benefits out of it, and they're generally difficult to obtain and prepare and after all that, a lot of dogs don't like them. Just not really worth the effort, although I will toss my guys a strip or belly if I'm eating them.
They should not be eating shells. That can seriously damage their digestive tract. They really don't break down well at all. I lived and worked by the ocean for years and I've seen Labs in particular get IBD eating shells off the beach. They can also cause obstructions.
