If you’re like most pet owners, sometimes you want to liven up your dog’s meals a bit. After all, variety is the spice of life, right?
Fortunately, there are lots of human foods that you can safely feed your dog — in addition to his normal dog food.
Unfortunately, many of those human foods aren’t technically considered healthy food for dogs.

Personally, these are my dog’s favorites from the ones that were mentioned:

- Pumpkin – freshly mashed or from a can, but not pumpkin pie filling.
- Leafy Greens – yep, dogs need their greens too!
