Dogs will put anything in their mouths: Leaves, bumblebees, poop.

Most things we can’t control, but of what we can control we should. Here are a few “human” foods (aka natural treats) our dogs can consume that are actually very good for them.
Apples. Apples provide vitamins A & C, as well as fiber for our loveable pooches. Just be careful with the seeds!
Another fruit that you can feed your dog is bananas. They are high in copper, vitamins, biotin, potassium, and fiber. But, they are to be feed in moderation since they are also saturated with sugar.
Blueberries are also excellent for dogs because they are high in antioxidants and fiber. They are great for reducing brain aging in your pup. We carry a blueberry flavored biscuit that you can order on saintscakery.com!
Cantaloupe is also moderately well for your dogs. They are high in nutrients and low in calories; so, they are better as a snack every once in a while than a meal. Again, be mindful of the seeds.
Cranberries are alright for your pooch as well. But, keep in mind that (A) Rex may not like their tartness and (B) they can cause an upset stomach. But overall good treats for dogs.
Raspberries are low in calories and sugar substance. Just make sure you give them these in ration to not harm them.
Strawberries are borderline with your dog. You can’t give them too much of it because they are high in sugar. But, they are also high in fiber and can give Fido a new smile, by whitening their teeth.
And, last but not least, watermelon. Watermelon is very good for dogs. It is filled with vitamins A, B-6, and C potassium and plenty of water (nice for walks to keep them hydrated with a nice treat). Just make sure to pick out all of the seeds and the rind, then you are good to go.
As you see, there are many healthy treats you can give to your fur baby to keep them happy and satisfied between meals. Try these out and let us know what your dog’s favorite nature treat is.
