Picnic Friendly Foods You Can Feed Your Dog

Sharing is caring!

These picnic friendly foods you can feed your dog will keep your sweet pooch from feeling left out of the festivities!

During the summer, there is nothing I love more than grabbing a picnic blanket and settling in under a shade tree for a yummy treat.

Recently though, I started making Tucker a part of that as well. I mean, he loves to people watch more than any other dog I know, so why not do it while we are enjoying a picnic together.

There are foods you can feed your dog and there are foods you cannot feed your dog, so today I decided to share with you picnic-friendly foods you can feed your dog that way you can rest with ease when they start begging for a bite of whatever you are eating at the moment.

Picnic Friendly Foods You Can Feed Your Dog

Some people foods like fruits and vegetables are great for your pet, when given in moderation. Some of Tucker's favorites are  —

  • Watermelon
  • Apple Slices (with seeds removed)
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Green Beans
  • Marshmallows

While giving a dog people food, you need to make sure you are cautious. One of the best foods for a picnic is fried chicken, but chicken bones are always a no-no when it comes to pets. The bones splinter and can cause severe choking hazards for dogs.

As you can see, the list of don'ts far outweighs the do's, so to be on the safe side, if you are planning a picnic for yourself, provide your dog with their own pet food.
