Biscuits and chococlates

Teddy loves human biscuits and refuses to eat dog biscuits.

He likes biscuits so much. He can be right next to us and not hear us calling him or asking him to do anything! or when he does do as told he will walk slowly not run!

As soon as he hears the word "biscuit", or hears the biscuits being moved or packet being opened (even if were trying really hard not to make a sound), he could be fast asleep on the other side of the house but that, he will hear and will be by your side in less than a minute!


So my question is:
would you let your dogs eat human biscuits? would it be a problem to let him have a few small biscuits every now and then?
if ok, what type would be best? he likes rich tea, marie, digestive and shortcake biscuits.

Also,there's a brand of dog food/treats that sell chocolate drops/chunks for dogs.... I looked the ingredients and it has cocoa! Isn't cocoa toxic to dogs? this product is on sale in almost all large supermarkets and most pet shops!!

I am sorry, but after seeing the 20/20 episode on cancer and sugar, (cancer cells eating sugar like the pac man game), I just wouldn't. I will still have the occasional shortbread myself, but could not make that decision for another little being. My Kosmo loves the chews by The Honest Kitchen made out of fish skins.

Thanks Marcia,
I'll look out for that documentary - maybe a way to get myself off my sugar too!

Any opinion on safety of chocolate drops/chunks for dogs?

Thanks for the helpful link Dave.
Wouldn't have thought they would be sneaking in sugar in dog food and treats! Thought European companies would be safer but I guess it makes sense that he likes those imported biscuits (which looked a lot like a giant tea biscuit)!

Am guessing it's a no for the chocolate drops then?
