10 Best Fruit For Dogs










Apples are a great treat for dogs. They contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Fiber. Apples can even freshen your dog's breath but be sure to remove the seeds, which contain cyanide, and the core, which may be a choking hazard to your dog.




Bananas are packed full of nutrients that are important for both humans and dogs so they make a great snack for your pup. Bananas contain Potassium as most people may know but they are also rich in Magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Copper, Biotin, and Fiber. Bananas are also know to help ease minor diarrhea and increase growth of the healthy gut bacteria.

You can even use bananas to make a tasty "Ice Cream". Just freeze some bananas without the peel and when you're ready, throw them in the blender along with other fruit on this list or dog safe ingredients, like peanut butter, and you have yourself a banana "Ice Cream" that you can enjoy along with your pup.




Blackberries provide a good source of Antioxidants, Omega-3, and Fiber. Antioxidants are important in any diet because they offer many benefits such as: slowing the process of aging and protecting against cancer. All dogs can benefit from having berries in their diet since they all are great carriers of antioxidants.




Blueberries are full of Vitamin C, Fiber, and just like Blackberries, they are packed with antioxidants that help fight off free radicals which cause cellular and molecular in dogs and humans alike. Some more benefits of antioxidants in dogs are the ability to help with skin allergies, asthma, and arthritis in dogs, so this is especially good for aging dogs.



Cantaloupe is great for your dog in moderation. It contains high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Beta-Carotene, and Fiber. The high fiber content helps with your dogs digestive system and can prevent constipation while the Beta-Carotene promotes healthy eyes and good eyesight. Just make sure to remove the rind and seeds before serving to your dog as this may cause an upset stomach and may serve to be a choking hazard.



Mangoes are considered a very healthy and nutritious fruit and are packed with over 20 different Vitamins and Minerals. Among the top contenders is Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Potassium, Vitamin B6, Fiber, and Antioxidants. This tasty fruit is a great way to boost your dogs immune system and is especially good for an older dog who may lack Vitamin C as this fruit contains double the daily recommended value. Make sure to remove the skin and the pit since it poses a choking hazard and contains small amounts of cyanide.



Pears are a delicious treat for dogs in moderation. They contain Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Fiber, Copper, Vitamin K, and Vitamin B6. Vitamin K is especially important for bone health so it is a good treat for dogs that are very active or are older and prone to weakened bones. Potassium is good for the heart and promotes healthy cardiovascular function. Low Potassium levels may cause Arrhythmia, which is an irregular heart beat. Make sure to remove the rind and seeds which contain small amounts of cyanide which is poisonous for dogs. 




Raspberries are another berry that dogs can eat and that provides them with plenty of nutrients such as Vitamin C, Manganese, Fiber, Antioxidants, Potassium, and Folic Acid. One thing to remember is to not feed your dog too many Raspberries since these fruit are high in the naturally occurring sweetener Xylitol which is harmful to dogs if too much is consummed. Keep Raspberries as an occasional treat and give in moderation.



Strawberries are one of the most popular fruit for humans and there's no wonder why. They are delicious and contain many beneficial properties for a healthy diet. Strawberries are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Fiber, Antioxidants, and Vitamin K. Just like their cousins the blueberries, Strawberries help boost the immune system and have all the antioxidant benefits as the other berries such as reducing inflammation and helping the body fight off infections.



Watermelons are low in calories and a great way to hydrate yourself with all natural sweetness since they are 92% water. Watermelons contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and Potassium. Remove the seeds and the rind since the rind can cause internal blockage and even choking in some dogs. The seeds may be tolerated by bigger dogs but may also cause intestinal blockage in small dogs so it's best if the are removed.

Driver's Licence For Pets


How fun would it be if you could create a customized Driver's License for your pet? Not only would this be a great conversation starter but a fully functional Identification Card that could serve a useful purpose if your pet is ever lost. Well thanks to My Pet DMV you can make a special Identification Card with a picture of your pet and all your pet's stats like height, age, and even eye color.

I thought that making Bentley her very own Pet Driver's License was the perfect idea since I have misplaced her ID tag. I wanted something that would have her information on it in case she wandered off, which has happened a couple times.

One day last year I had a panic attack because someone left our back gate open and Bentley had gotten out. I searched for her around the neighborhood and even looked on Craigslist's lost and found and pets section to no avail. She was missing all night and I couldn't sleep. All sorts of thoughts were running through my mind. Was she hit by a car, taken to live with a new family, lost and scared? All that I kept thinking was that this is all my fault for not having made some new id tags. Maybe if I would have she would be back at home safe. The next day I went searching for her again and thankfully found her. She was at a neighbor's house around the block. They said that they had seen me walk Bentley before but they didn't know which house I lived in. After this incident I realized that ID tags are crucial and always need to be worn, you never know what can happen and our beloved pets are irreplaceable.

My Pet DMV gives you the option to upload any photo of your pet and it includes all of your pet's information such as: Phone number, address, sex, height, weight, date of birth, hair color, eye color, restrictions, and even a signature. They send you a Driver's License Identification Card and a key chain version so that you can put one on your pet's collar. Each ID features the same look of your State ID. Bentley has a California ID and it looks just like mine and I love it because I got to choose my favorite picture of Bentley!



We received our ID Card and tag in a couple days and I immediately put the tag on Bentley's collar. We then headed to the dog park and Bentley was definitely a hot topic. People would pet her and reach down to her ID tag and have a laugh. They all loved the fact that the tag looks like an actual Driver's License and featured her picture. I felt peace of mind knowing that if anything ever happens to her that at least there is a way to know where she lives.



Each My Pet DMV Identification Card is made in the United States and a portion of the proceeds helps animals in need. Free Shipping is include with each order. You can also preview your ID before purchasing to make sure it looks exactly how you would like it to. This would make a great gift for any pet owner!


See what others are saying:


“These are the most authentic licenses I’ve seen. We’ve tried another Pet ID License company, only to see the quality was horrible. These IDs are authentic and match my real license!- Charley, Newport CA


“Our Pet Licenses lasted almost four years without fading or falling apart. The keychain ID is the best.- Baxtor, New York, NY


"My license came in the mail the same week my mom ordered it. When I went to the dog park on Friday night, I was the hit of the park. Thanks MyPetDMV!" - Tiger,Nederland, TX

Peacebone: The Smart Pup's Bone of Choice


We recently discovered a brand of All Natural Bones for Dogs that we just have to share with you because Bentley absolutely loves them! Peacebone is a company that creates a healthy option of dog treats. Each dog bone is hand picked and made with the finest USA farm raised beef sourced from local farms. 


Peacebone's founder James Hencken's vision is to create dog treats that aren't mass produced in mills or overseas where regulations are nearly nonexistent but to produce them in the USA using only quality ingredients. Having some experience farming,  James was able to find top quality and responsible farms that do not use antibiotics, GMOs, or any abusive measures towards their animals as well as being free range and that take good care of their animals.

"We set out to make our own bones for our own dogs that were of a higher quality than what we were able to find on the market. We succeeded. Peacebone was born through our desire to fill this demand for our fellow dog lovers; to offer this quality to our friends and loved ones, and now, on to you."


We Tried Out 3 Peacebones:

Read below to find out how all three different Peacebones stood up to the jaws and the palate of Bentley the Pit Bull and her friend Baguette the Frenchie.

First up to the challenge is the Bare Bone. This is their medium sized bone which is 4-6 inches long and filled with marrow. It is slow roasted and smoked to perfection and the perfect size for Bentley to munch on all day.

After giving Bentley the bone, she immediately took it to her favorite spot in the yard under an orange tree, plopped down on the ground, and started to chomp away. I didn't see her again until hours later so it's safe to say that she really enjoyed this bone. I think the marrow on the inside was the best part because she devoured it all and licked the inside of that bone clean. (You can really see the bone marrow packed in the center of the bone in the photo below)

The next bone we tried out was The Pacifier which is a bit smaller and "rounder" than the Bare Bone. It is actually a knee cap that has been slow roasted and hand trimmed. This particular bone has pieces falling off of it that are delightfully crispy and it actually smells pretty good in my opinion. On the actual packaging it states that "Each Peacebone is carefully crafted with love and guaranteed to make your dog's tail wag" and yes it does what it claims because the dog's tails were wagging!

This bone was actually hi-jacked by another dog. Funny story, we are curently dog sitting a French Bulldog named Baguette and let me tell you, this guy was all about this bone. He managed to take it away from Bentley and has been spending everyday gnawing at this thing. It's been almost a week and he's still going at it and enjoying every second of it as he licks and bites away in between his cute little Frenchie snorts. This one is definitely a hit for the little guy.

The last bone but surely not the least or the smallest is The Peacemaker and this bone doesn't disappoint.  It is the largest bone at 7-9 inches long and is the perfect size for a large dog to tote around in his or her mouth which is exactly what Bentley has been doing. This bone is actually a hind leg so imagine that.

As soon as I showed Bentley this huge bone her eyes widened and she did that ancy dance dogs do when they are excited and anxious. It's when they lift up their paws and step down over and over in anticipation. Dog owners should know exactly what I'm talking about. Well you could tell that she was super excited about this bone. When I gave it to her she was over the moon and carried this thing around in her mouth like it was a prize. She didn't want to put it down, she just pranced around the backyard with the bone, happy as a clam. As a matter of fact, every time I go into the backyard she runs to her bone just so she can carry it around in her mouth like a proud mother. It's quite endearing.


Final Thoughts:

It seems that both of the dogs loved the bones and so do I because they are not only affordable an long lasting but they help sustainable farms and are a healthier alternative than many other bones on the market because they were created with the dog and owner in mind. I will be getting more bones for Bentley to enjoy and I feel great about the fact that the animals used are treated without the use of antibiotics and with no harm done to the animals.


Peacebone's Worldview:

"We believe that, just like people, active dogs are healthy dogs. We are avid hikers, campers, and all around outdoorsy people. We aim to connect with our fellow nature enthusiasts, and we believe our products are the best option for those fixated on hitting the trails happy and healthy. Therefore, the products we are focusing on are developed to support this lifestyle. Our bones are the best campsite reward possible, and our easy to pack, freeze dried Trail Treats will give your dog the protection and nutrients they need to keep going. So deeply do we care for our environment that we include Fur seeds in EVERY order we ship, so that while you're hiking with your dog, you can plant a tree!"
