    My two nine year old labs, Hueso and Porsha, love baby carrots. At first they didn’t know how to chew on them and they would slip out of their mouths. It was hilarious. Now they beg for them.

    A week ago I started giving my min pin carrots and he just loves them. He has been over weight so I thought this would make a good snack for him. He really like to eat a lot and always begging.

    I have 3.5 month old pug dog” Buddy”. He loves baby carrots. He is teething right now and he is looking for something to chew on. Chewing baby carrots keep him busy for a little while and away from biting us 🙂 I also use them for training. Within couple of days he learned how to seat down Yaaay .

    Yep! The Biggums LOVES carrots. Just gave him his first one and he is a happy boy! He chewed on it for a while, breaking it into small pieces. Then, he went back and ate each of the pieces. He will be getting carrots instead of stinky bully sticks from now on…

  18. pat homans

    My 92.6 lbs Husky/sharpie mix loves raw carrots, I buy the regular carrots and cut them to size, she gets several a day and just loves them but I also give her probiotics and enzymes to break her food down, I think that helps, she also loves brusselsprouts and broccoli specially the stalks of the broccoli so when I buy fresh broccoli, I take the stalks of and give her one a day but carrots are her favorites, she also likes plain salad, she is a vegetable girl

    My dog Cali LOVES carrots. When I go the the fridge she comes a running for her carrot. Our dog Rasin(who passed a few years a go) would eat any veggies except peas. I would steam mixed veggies and put them in her bowl, she would eat all the veggies and place all the peas on the floor next to her bowl.

    I have 2 Jack Russell Terriers and I feed them carrots after they eat their meal they love them.

  25. Tanya

    Yes, my dog loves them. I gave her a carrot one day, as I had left one on the kitchen counter. I wanted to see what she would do. At first she played with it then, she took a bite and starting chopping away. They are a treat for her now. I even gave my grand-dogs one the other day they were over and they 1st played with them then chopped away.
