If you’re a dog owner, then you don’t need me to tell you that dogs are a part of our families. You want the best for your furry friend, and you likely do everything in your power to keep them safe (kinda like with our kids!). It’s important that you know which types of people food are safe to feed to your dog, and which foods you need to keep away from them at all costs.
