Any dog owner knows that a Kong toy full of peanut butter can be a gift from heaven for an overactive puppy. Not only is it totally tasty for your dog, it will provide them with a ton of protein. Just be wary of high-salt and high-fat peanut butter, as that can get unhealthy for your pup too.

If you have an extra can of water-packed tuna in your cabinet, consider sharing with Fido. Mixing some flakes of tuna in with your dog’s dry food is an extra special treat full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids that are as good for your dog as they are for you!

Boiled Chicken

For a dog with an upset tummy, boiled chicken is a great substitute for dog food. If they need a boost of protein, mix some of the shredded boiled chicken in with their bowls for them to enjoy. 

Carrots

Raw or cooked, carrots’ beta carotene is great for your dog. Chewing on the raw carrots is also great for their teeth and breath

Rice

Another digestion-friendly food would be rice. Boiled and combined with chicken or their regular dog food and it will make their stomachs very happy.

Yogurt

Full-fat plain yogurt is great for dogs, as this probiotic is perfect for digestion and nutrition. Freeze some in a doggy-safe container (like a Kong) for a frozen treat they can snack on to beat the summer heat.

Eggs

Want your dog to have a shiny coat and be super happy? Feed the pup some scrambled eggs- without the milk of course! Your dog will love the taste and will appreciate the extra protein its furry little body needs!  

Summer Fruits

Watermelon, blueberries, and cantaloupe are all refreshing fruits for your dog. Each of these fruits has a variety of vitamins that are as essential to your dog’s diet as they are to yours.  

Green Beans

As long as they are free of an added salt, these low-calorie bites will make for happy munching for your puppy.

Want your dog to love you for life? Give it some cooked pumpkin. This will help support your furry friend’s cardiovascular health as well as aid in getting your dog the extra nutrients it needs for a healthy digestive system.
