Can Dogs Eat Pretzels?

Our canine friends love to snack as much as we do, but can dogs eat pretzels?

The safe answer is no. While pretzels are a guilty pleasure for humans, some of the ingredients could be harmful to our canine friends according to the experts at

For example, salted pretzels are risky for a dog because eating salt can be very detrimental to our pet's health, especially if it’s a puppy.

So what about if you give your puppy a sweet pretzel instead? Will that be okay?

The canine experts at DogArea recommend against it. In general, they say, pretzels are an unhealthy snack for dogs. While they believe one or two snacks of plain pretzels might be okay (no more than one a day), it’s better to stick to meat snacks or other treats that won’t have you rushing to a veterinary hospital or calling your vet.  

At we value you as a customer and know that dogs are a special part of our families. While we’d love to be able to feed man’s best friend, we acknowledge that pretzels treats are not for canine consumption. 

Now if your dog gets a hold of a pretzel, DogArea advises against panicking. If it’s only one, your dog should be okay, but if you have a puppy, it’s better to call your vet for advice.

As a family business, we pride ourselves on being honest and offering a delectable selection of pretzels for all the humans in your family.
