Puppy Garden

Hey...so I've been thinking about growing an herb garden for Loki to eat out of. I originally wanted to use them in my dog treats but I've been thinking about how we don't have much of a yard at all at my house in Big Rapids.

There's basically zero vegetation out there and Loki just loves to munch on plants when we're outside so I was thinking of growing a garden in my room and letting him just graze on it sometimes. Would that be safe or good for dogs?

Anyway I still want to start incorporating them into my treats so what kind of herbs or grasses should I plant for him and what benefits do they have?

Thanks for the help guys!

Animals usually just know what to eat and not to eat as far as most plants. Can't stress "most" enough here. There are plants like Crodaleria (sp) that smell like peanuts and a horse will eat it and it's very dangerous. And then there are plants that they don't eat because they know better but would if nothing else was available. I can tell you edible herbs but I'm not sure if they are ok for dogs. We can eat some things they can't. Like onions, grapes, chocolate and such. The only time my dogs eat grass is when they have an upset tummy and want to throw up. LOL......

humm too much of even good things could be toxic, I dunno about that, what about just planting a patch of grass? good question and I hope some more ppl chime in. I would not rely on him "knowing" what is good or not so if you do it make sure all the plants are non toxic to dogs.

Yeahyeah I'm definitely gonna make sure everything I would plant in there is non-toxic. I was worried about just letting him graze because I don't know if certain herbs are only safe if they're prepared right, plus I could see him just gobbling up a whole plant which I cant imagine would be good for him lol

I know I'm only planting a few simple ones like parsley and milk thistle, maybe also some peppermint, licorice or skullcap I can't decide they all look like they could have some good health benefits. And then some grass on the side for him to pick at too I just still don't know about him eating the herbs fresh...if it's just an amount thing I was thinking about putting it up out of reach and only let him in it while I'm watching?

I've heard bad and good things about garlic so some dogs must just be sensitive to it...
I kinda wanted to grow them in my room lol so that'ss what I would worry about the garlic but I might try it...

My boyfriend wanted me to grow chives too which Loki could nott eat so I'll probably just end up growing my herbs outside in the flowerboxes on our garage and then just get some pet grass for Loki since we don't have much of a yard.

That way it's better safe then sorry I feel on him overeating them too...

Thanks for the help guys I'll let you know how it works out!

That's what I've always heard or that they'll eat it when they're just so bored they can't stand it.....so how cool do I feel when Loki won't play with me because he's more interested in eating the grass! Lol that boy crackss me up.
