Chomp, Chomp For Corn . . . but No Cobs For Dogs!

Letting a pup have a few bites of corn isn't a horrible idea provided she's not allergic, but I wouldn't recommend doing this on a regular basis. The issue is not with the kernels (which can be a dog food "filler" item), but cobs are very dangerous for pets — they can cause intestinal obstruction if swallowed! Make sure to hold on tight while she nibbles, and throw it away in a pet-proof trash can after the snack to make sure she doesn't go in for seconds.

My dog doesn't like corn, he spits it out if we give it to him haha. But he does like watermelon, and we taught him how to eat it off the rind! The rind is probably dangerous for him to eat though, so we always hold the rind for him, and don't keep watermelon where he can get it.

what a cute collie! :) I allow them to have what is leftover (cornwise, not cob) but that isn't very often.
