You're eating a snack or a meal at the dinner table and what do you see? Your dog's eyes just pleading for a taste. While sharing a bite or two of most human foods won't do harm, it's important to make sure that everything you're feeding is completely safe. We've broken down a go-to guide to help you determine dog-friendly foods that both of you can enjoy together. But keep in mind that all fruits and veggies should be served without seeds or pits, and meats should be cooked and unseasoned. Just because the following foods are OK for your best friend, doesn't mean they should replace their current diet or be given in large quantities frequently. Like all things, moderation is key.
