    Maybe you all know this but maybe some don't, I found out about ten years ago by running out of 'treats' for my dogs, that carrots are a great healthy substitute for treats.

    My dog loves carrots. She will do anything for a carrot! She usually gets one a day and I feel so much better giving her that than a pet treat. Does anyone know of other vegetables that are good for dogs to eat?
