Some Wild Plants Dogs Can Eat, Too

Wolf sense is pretty much bred out of our domestic dogs. What they have given up in wilderness knowledge, they have more than compensated for by knowing how to live in the comfort zone. Nevertheless, if you are on a hike and your dog decides to go vegetarian, do not panic if he eats any of the following. Unless he eats great mounds of these plants, he’ll most likely be just fine. Dandelion plants, mesquite leaves (but NOT mesquite bark packaged for grill smoker boxes), maple leaves, mulberry leaves and berries and the occasional mouthful of pesticide-free grass and clover are all OK.
