We get questions like this one on the blog all the time, as well as from friends and family when we’re visiting their houses and bringing our dog with us.
Our dog, like many, is a kitchen hanger-outer (is yours too?). She quietly nuzzles your leg, maintaining zero distance between you and the floor in case something drops from the prep. zone.
We thought we’d put together two infographics to help with answers to questions like, “can your dog have a grape?”, particularly since the holiday season tends to mean busier households and larger gatherings, so more hands in the kitchen that may or may not be familiar with ‘dog-friendly’ and ‘dog-toxic’ foods.
We’d never expect non dog-owners to know the answers to these questions, but dog owners and sitters/caregivers etc. really should. You could even print these out and pin them up in the kitchen so that chefs and sous-chefs alike can see what goes and what doesn’t when it comes to foods that are safe for Fido.
Safety first, right? Then let the entertaining begin!
Hope these posters are useful!

If you have any questions, please ask us. We’re always available in the comments, on social media, or by email.
*When in doubt, consult your vet about your dog’s specific dietary needs.
And don’t forget to share these with your family and friends…
For additional information specifically on the toxicity of grapes on dogs, we invite you to check out the article, “Can Dogs Eat Grapes?” by our friends at PetConsider.com.
