The Dog’s Breakfast

The Dog’s Breakfast

Every now and again, for special occasions or just because, I like to make a breakfast that my dogs and I can share.

I know, spoiled right? The thing is that my dogs love love love eggs and as it turns out, they’re actually a nice healthy treat that can be safely shared as a treat.

Eggs are a good source of gentle, easily digestible protein (making eggs a good choice for dogs with tummy trouble.) Plus, they’re so very easy that even humans with super limited kitchen skills can make them and with just a little love, they make a ridiculously tasty treat for everyone in the family, human and canine alike.

It’s so easy to make The Dog’s Breakfast – a tasty egg dish that you and your dogs can share.

Start with two eggs per human and 1/2 – 1 egg per canine (depending on size).

Raid your fridge to find tasty, dog friendly extras like lean, unspiced meats, fresh veggies, plain potato etc.

Stir together in a pan or on a griddle, flipping until cooked through. Sprinkle with a small amount of cheese (we used parm – yum!)


Since my dogs are on a strict “learn to earn” program, we used pieces of egg, steak and potato to lure them up & down our new dog stairs. (More on that tomorrow!), but I’ve also used scrambled eggs to stuff Kongs and other treat toys (Smash up the potatoes for a stickier treat).

Have you ever made eggs for your dog?

This is a great idea! I will be sure to cook up an extra egg for my Zoe next time I make breakfast!

When Momma's actually gets up early enough to make herself breakfast (she has to be at work at 6am, usually she just smacks the snooze button so many times she ends up running out the door with no-minutes to spare for food) she makes scrammbled eggs. I almost always get some, too!

We feed the dogs eggs a lot. The dogs also get leftovers, even though they are primarily raw fed. I remember my grandparents' dogs all being fed strictly leftovers and living to a ripe old age, with gorgeous coats. Of course back then their foods came with a whole lot less preservatives and other junk.

Great post!

I've never MADE them eggs per say, but I will share my own breakfast with them as long as their is nothing in there that is bad for them (onions.)
