Peanut butter definitely is a good one and meat for sure. You could even look up feeding a strictly raw diet Smile

For training I used chopped up hot dogs or cubes of cheese Smile

I like Smuckers Natural for mine, but my opinion is the natural ones. The dog bakery uses that brand also

I like giving mine deli meat (roast beef), string cheese (favorite), & white meat turkey hotdogs.

I'm pretty picky about what I give them and those are pretty much the normal things I give mine. I tried stuffing kongs w/yogurt and pumpkin, but they weren't that interested in it at the time. I may try it again here soon Smile

Others have posted great suggestions!

Some pups like carrots. I've tried giving Juneau carrots but she's not too fond of them! Applesauce is good too (if you want to stuff it in the kong or something). Also if you cook raw chicken, you could toss her some raw chicken (boneless breast/thigh is what I use).

Whatever you do, don't feed her grapes! They're toxic to our babies.

String cheese, hot dogs, I do cooked and dried chicken breast, liver, anything like that makes my pups happy. I'd be cautious with peanut butter I found out the hard way one of mine is allergic to peanuts!

I use string cheese mostly for training and pottying.

I put peanut butter in her kong as well as yogurt, pumpkin, applesauce, and blueberries. I would just be careful in general just like with a baby introduce things solely to see if they have an allergy.

Definitely stick with plain, the other ones have too much sugar/additives. Plain Greek yogurt is excellent too.

I'd watch the salt content in deli meats.

I cut beef steak strips into small 1cm cubes and freeze them, then use them as high reward treats.

Hi all,
Here is some info I pulled together of the internet so I know what I can and cant feed my husky, mind you she is is alot older ( Kira is between 1 and 2 years of age) again everything must be in moderation. If people have any comments on this list please also let me know. I am no dog nutritionist or anything but have always wanted to ensure my dog gets good healthy foods to keep her strong. Not saying that all huskies would like the below.

I have put down fruits and veg and next to each the good health effects. I try and include a mix of the below in her diet. for goodness and variety. And ofcourse meats like chicken, fish, red meat, mince, turkey. (cooked) I prefer to stay away from off the shelf commercially prepared dog foods in supermarkets because you dont know what goes into some of the canned foods these days unless its of high quality Like Earthborn - ( Note I give Kira also Coastal Catch dry also sometimes )
She has no health problems so far.

Fruits and Vegetables ok for dogs
apple flesh only - ( remove pips cyanide note pips can cause intestinal blockage/ excellent source of vitamin C Pectin gets rid of toxins in digestive tract

plums - (remove pip-cyanide) note pips can cause intestinal blockage
water melon flesh only - proper functioning of a dogs digestive system/powerful antioxidants Really Good for Dogs
cantelope flesh only - good for eye sight excellent source of vitamin A/ Also very good for dogs
pear in small quantities - helps muscle contraction and nervous system/maintains heart strength, reduce cholesterol/work against 02 damage
strawberry (only on or two a day max) - good antioxidants
blueberries - good antioxidants
rasberries - good antioxidants
Kiwi flesh ( very small amounts ) promotes good respiratory health/Vitamin C
banana ( small quantity only flesh) - good source of potassium that benefits the development of the muscular system
carrots - Rich in vitamin A & C - good for optical development
Parsley a tablespoon no more (helps reduce arthritus and inflammation/helps urinary tract infections/arthritus
small amount of Brocolli - contains cancer preventative compounds
green beans - prevents oxygen damage and improve blood fat levels, helps maintain bone health.
cucumber slices - Rich in vitamin A & C
zuchini slices Rich in vitamin A & C
chopped parsley Rich in vitamin A & C
celery Rich in vitamin A & C and iron - also has tumor fighting agents
spinach very good iron antioxidants wards off inflamatory and cardiovascular problems as well as cancer
bell peppers Rich in vitamin A & C
pumpkin good to prevent constipation and/pr diarohea /fibre/anti inflammatory/regulates blood sugar levels/cardiovasc health
squash Vitamin like pumpkin
cooked sweet potato
cooked lentils
orange only flesh strengthens immune system/protects against cancer/protects connective tissue/keep away viral infections
Peas
lettuce

pineapple only flesh
Grapefruit flesh small quantity helps fight viral infections
Cauliflower
Salmon
lean chicken
turkey
lean beef no fat fat clogs arteries.
boiled/cooked egg only source of protein riboflavin
oatmeal
cottage cheese
Yoghurt fridge - only plain
Frozen yoghurt - a couple of teaspoons ok as treat good acidophalus
Alfa Alfa acts as an anti-inflammatory
Chamomile tea helps insomnia, reduce gas and vomiting

Also note, that veggies are not fully digested by dogs in their raw state For the best absorption steam or boil and puree veggies. This will make them easily digestible.
