As a Goldendoodle owner you often share favorite foods with your pup, but when it comes to food, they have different metabolic systems. That’s why we’ve put together a list of 37 common fruits, vegetables and snacks Goldendoodles can or cannot eat.
So if you’re not sure what to feed your Goldendoodle, check out the list below.
List of fruits Goldendoodles can or can’t eat
Wondering which fruits your Goldendoodle can eat or not? Here is a list of some common fruits your Goldendoodle can or can’t eat:
Apples are a great source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber for your Goldendoodle. These lovely fruits are also low in protein and fat, making them the perfect snack for senior Goldendoodles.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind when feeding your pet apples:
– Remove the seeds and core first. The seeds contain cyanide and can be toxic to Goldendoodles if ingested.
– Avoid processed apples like applesauce or apple pie filling; they may contain added sugar that could upset your Goldendoodle’s stomach.
Avocados are not safe for your Goldendoodle to consume. Avocado fruit, pits, leaves, skin and the actual plant contain persin, so these parts are potentially poisonous to your Goldendoodle. The substance can cause heart damage in Goldendoodles and other animals. There is no known antidote for avocados, so if you suspect your Goldendoodle has eaten some, seek veterinary care immediately.
However, there is good news: avocado oil is safe in small amounts! However, too much avocado oil can be toxic to your Goldendoodle because of its high fat content. So if you decide to give your Goldendoodle a treat of avocado-infused oil (or any other food/treat), do so sparingly and under supervision.
Yes. Bananas are a low-calorie snack that is great for Goldendoodles in moderation. They are high in potassium, vitamins, biotin, fiber, and copper. Bananas also have low cholesterol and sodium content, so they’re a healthy treat for your Goldendoodle!
However, bananas do have a high sugar content and should only be given as an occasional treat. The peel is hard to digest and can cause digestive issues in Goldendoodles if given too frequently or in large quantities. Avoid processed bananas like banana chips or puddings—these may contain added toxic ingredients that could be harmful to your pup.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat blackberries.
Blackberries are low in calories and sugar, high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They’re also a good source of fiber. You can give your Goldendoodle fresh or frozen blackberries. Just avoid processed blackberries like blackberry jam, jelly, or blackberry-flavored ice cream—they may contain harmful ingredients like xylitol (a sweetener that’s toxic to Goldendoodles).
Two blackberries per 10 pounds of body weight is the recommended serving size.
In fact, this tasty fruit is high in vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants. And while it’s also high in sugar, you can feed a pup 4-5 blueberries per 10 pounds of body weight with no problem. Fresh or frozen blueberries are fine—just avoid dried or mashed ones because they may contain harmful ingredients.
When shopping for blueberries, make sure they’re organic. If you’re buying processed foods like muffins or yogurt, look out for added sugar, artificial colors and flavors, and hydrogenated fats.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat cantaloupe. The fruit is low in calories but high in other nutrients, like fiber and moisture. It also contains sugar, so be sure to give your Goldendoodle cantaloupe in moderation and remove the rinds and seeds, which can cause choking.
Can Goldendoodles eat cherries? No, they can’t.
The fleshy part of the cherry is safe for your Goldendoodle to eat, but the plant contains cyanide. The cyanide in cherries destroys cellular oxygen transport in your Goldendoodle, causing symptoms like dilated pupils and difficulty breathing. Contact your vet if your Goldendoodle ate a cherry.
Grapes are delicious, but they’re also very toxic to Goldendoodles. Even a small amount of grapes can cause sudden kidney failure in your Goldendoodle.
Symptoms of grape poisoning include:
Seek veterinary help immediately if you suspect your Goldendoodle ate grapes, even if there are no symptoms yet.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat mango!
It’s a great source of four different vitamins: A, B6, C, and E. It also has potassium, fiber and antioxidants.
Mangoes have an outer skin that is hard to digest. Therefore, remove it before feeding it to your Goldendoodle. The pit of a mango can also be dangerous if swallowed by your Goldendoodle therefore remove it as well.
Also, avoid processed mango products like mango sorbet, mango popsicles and mango ice cream as they may contain harmful ingredients like artificial sweeteners or preservatives. Amount depends on the size of your Goldendoodle but one-quarter cup of fresh ripe mango once a week should be enough for them to consume.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat oranges in moderation. However, there are certain precautions to take when giving them to your Goldendoodle.
Oranges provide Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and moisture. This makes them an excellent snack for Goldendoodles that need a bit more nutrition in their diets.
Give only the fleshy part to your Goldendoodle—that means no peels or seeds! Remove all traces of peel, skin, pith and seeds before feeding it to your Goldendoodle because these parts are too bitter for him to eat safely.
1-2 sections as an occasional treat are enough for most Goldendoodles. You should never give your Goldendoodle too many orange sections at one time because it can cause stomach upset if consumed in large amounts.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat peaches.
Peaches are a great source of fiber and vitamin A, so if you have a Goldendoodle who needs to maintain a healthy weight or one that has digestive issues, peaches are a great way to give them nutrients without having to add any other ingredients. Just be sure to remove the pit before serving it to your Goldendoodle as it contains cyanide.
Also, avoid processed peaches like peach cobbler or peach pie, as they may contain harmful ingredients.
Yes, pears are fine for Goldendoodles to eat. In fact, they’re a great snack because they’re high in copper, vitamins C and K, and fiber. They can also reduce the risk of having a stroke significantly!
One thing to keep in mind is that pears contain sugar, so if you give your Goldendoodle a slice, make sure it’s not too big. A small slice is ok for most Goldendoodles. You should also remove the pit and seeds first—the seeds contain traces of cyanide!
You’ll also want to skip processed pears like canned pears, as it may contain sugar syrups or other additives your pet might not digest and get sick.
Pineapple is a tasty and nutritious snack for Goldendoodles. It contains vitamins, minerals, bromelain, and moisture. Make sure you only feed your Goldendoodle the soft inner fruit and not the spiky skin or hard inner core.
To make sure you’re providing your Goldendoodle with the healthiest pineapple possible, remove any processed pineapples like canned pineapple or pineapple cake—these contain added harmful chemicals that can be dangerous for Goldendoodles. Only give your pup 2/3 small bites of raw pineapple at a time.
Yes, pumpkin is a great choice for your Goldendoodle. Pumpkin helps with your Goldendoodle’s skin and coat, and can help remedy both diarrhea and constipation in your Goldendoodle.
Never feed your Goldendoodle pumpkin pie mix. Canned pure pumpkin is ok for your Goldendoodle but make sure it’s 100% pumpkin.
Many pumpkin supplements and pumpkin pup treats are available on the market today. The amount varies with your Goldendoodle’s size and activity level, but start with a teaspoon per day.
The benefits of fresh and frozen strawberries are the same, so you can feel good about serving either one to your Goldendoodle.
When you’re serving strawberries to your pup, though, remember that they contain seeds, so always cut them into small pieces before feeding them to your Goldendoodle. You should also remove the stem from each berry before giving it to your Goldendoodle.
Also avoid processed strawberries like strawberry jam or strawberry ice cream—those are not healthy for Goldendoodles because they contain ingredients like sugar and other sweeteners that are not good for canine health.
Watermelon is a low calorie treat that contains vitamins, minerals, lycopene, and moisture. The only part of the fruit that is safe and nutritious for Goldendoodles to eat is the flesh. Goldendoodles should only eat small chunks of watermelon and they should be sure to remove all seeds, rinds and skin.
Half a cup of diced seedless and rind-free watermelon per 10 pounds of body weight is enough to satisfy your Goldendoodle’s hunger without overloading them with calories.
List of vegetable Goldendoodles can or can’t eat
Wondering which vegetables your Goldendoodle can eat or not? Here is a list of some vegetables your Goldendoodle can or can’t eat:
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat broccoli. Broccoli contains a lot of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and calcium, which are essential for keeping your Goldendoodle healthy. Broccoli stems and florets, both are safe to eat, either cooked or raw. However, always cut them into small pieces to prevent the risk of choking hazard!
Offer 1/4 (0.25) cup broccoli per 10 pounds of body weight of your pup.
Cabbage is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin C and calcium. It’s also high in fiber, which helps keep your Goldendoodle’s digestive system running smoothly.
It is best to lightly cook it or roast it so that it is easy for Goldendoodles to digest. However, do not season it with oil or salt, as this can upset their stomachs.
To make sure you don’t give your pup too much cabbage at once, offer just one bite per 10 pounds of body weight.
Yes, carrots are an excellent low calorie treat for Goldendoodles. Carrot contains vitamins, minerals, fiber and crunching on this orange veggie is great for your Goldendoodle’s teeth. Raw, frozen or cooked carrots, either are fine. However, cooked carrots are better since they are easy to digest. For raw or frozen carrots, chop them into smaller pieces to avoid choking hazards for your pup.
Carrot cake is fine as long as you add no harmful additives. 1 or 2 baby carrots are enough for an averaged size pup.
Can Goldendoodles eat celery?
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat celery. In fact, it’s an excellent low calorie treat for them. Celery is high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients that help your Goldendoodle stay healthy. It also contains a lot of moisture and fiber—which can help them feel full and satisfied after eating.
Celery sticks are ok for big pups (who typically have bigger stomachs), but keep the pieces bite-sized so they don’t choke on them. Celery leaves are ok too—as long as they’re organic and washed well before giving them to your pup!
Start with one or two pieces at first and only increase the amount as needed after observing how much your Goldendoodle eats at each mealtime.
Goldendoodles can eat cucumbers. Cucumbers are safe and healthy for Goldendoodles, as long as they are organic and not processed. They contain vitamins, minerals, moisture, and fiber—all of which are beneficial to your Goldendoodle’s health. Cucumbers also provide phytochemicals that help freshen your Goldendoodle’s breath.
While cucumber skins and seeds are safe for Goldendoodles to eat, avoid processed cucumbers like cucumber pickles, as they may contain harmful food additives like salt or sugar.
Goldendoodles can eat one or two pieces of cucumber per day depending on their size.
No, garlic is toxic to Goldendoodles.
Garlic contains N-propyl disulfide, a sulfur compound that causes hemolysis leading to anemia. Other symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weakness. Raw and cooked cloves and bulbs of garlic are toxic to your Goldendoodle. The toxic dose is 15 to 30 grams of garlic per kilogram of body weight. Contact your vet immediately if your Goldendoodle ate garlic.
Can a Goldendoodle eat onions? The answer is: no.
Onions can be toxic to Goldendoodles, and even small amounts can cause anemia in Goldendoodles. Goldendoodles who have eaten onions may have symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, weakness, and pale mucous membranes.
Onions contain N-propyl disulfide, a sulfur compound that causes hemolysis leading to anemia in Goldendoodles. The toxic dose is 15 gm/kg of the body weight of your Goldendoodle.
Every type of onion is bad for Goldendoodles—red, white whatever. Besides the flesh of the onion plant itself (which includes red onions), all parts of the plant are toxic to Goldendoodles too—including the leaves and juice. So if you think it’s okay because your Goldendoodle ate only the skin or slices off an onion—think again!
If you suspect your Goldendoodle has ingested any amount of onion at all—from whole bulbs to raw slices to powder form—contact your vet immediately.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat zucchini.
Zucchini is a low calorie treat and full of vitamins and antioxidants. Zucchini is also high in fiber and moisture that can help keep your Goldendoodle’s coat healthy.

Amount depends on the size of your Goldendoodle, but start with just one or two small bites.
List of some other snacks Goldendoodles can or can’t eat
Wondering which snacks your Goldendoodle can eat or not? Here is a list of some snacks your Goldendoodle can or can’t eat:
We do not recommend that you feed your Goldendoodle bacon.
Bacon is a rich, fatty food with a high salt content. Eating too much of this can be very harmful to your Goldendoodle’s health. It can cause pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas. Even worse, raw food can contain bacteria that can make your Goldendoodle sick.
However, giving your Goldendoodle small amounts of cooked bacon infrequently should not cause any suffering.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat beef.
The nutritional benefits of beef make it a good choice for your Goldendoodle’s diet. Cooked, unseasoned lean beef in small amounts is safe for Goldendoodles as long as they do not have allergies to beef. Your Goldendoodle will also get their protein and many important vitamins and minerals from this food source.
Beef broth, beef stew, and specialized Goldendoodle beef jerky without an excess amount of salt are also safe for your Goldendoodle. Never feed cooked bone to your Goldendoodle because it can cause damage to the digestive system and even cause death. However, larger raw beef bones can be used as chew toys for Goldendoodles.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat bread. In fact, they love it. But only plain white and wheat bread is safe for Goldendoodles to eat. Most other kinds of bread are not healthy for Goldendoodles and can cause them to become sick.
Too much bread can cause diarrhea in your Goldendoodle, which can lead to dehydration. That’s why it’s important to offer your Goldendoodle a crust from a slice of bread instead of a whole slice itself. If your Goldendoodle has an allergy or intolerance for wheat or white flour, then don’t give them any kind of bread at all because it could make their digestive system worse than before!
Yes, a small amount of cheese is ok for Goldendoodles. In fact, cheese is a great source of vitamins, fatty acids and proteins. However, you should be careful of what types of cheese you are feeding to your Goldendoodles. Mozzarella, cottage, swiss and cheddar cheese are safer than blue cheese, goat cheese, parmesan and cream cheese. Also, make sure that the cheese you feed your Goldendoodle doesn’t have any spicy toppings like pepperoni or jalapenos.
The amount depends on the size of your Goldendoodle. A few small bites should be fine for most Goldendoodles.
Goldendoodles can eat chicken. Chicken is a good source of protein, omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals—and it’s easy to prepare at home. Chicken breast meat is the best option because it contains less fat than the thigh or drumstick. You can also choose skinless chicken breast meat and debone it yourself to keep the fat content even lower.
If your Goldendoodle is on a raw meat diet, you’ll want to feed 1/8 to 1/6 cup of protein per 10 pounds of body weight per day.
Goldendoodles can’t eat chocolate.
Chocolate contains both theobromine and caffeine, which are toxic to Goldendoodles. Theobromine is an alkaloid found in cocoa beans, while caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that occurs naturally in coffee beans and tea leaves. Both of these ingredients are toxic to Goldendoodles when ingested in large amounts.
If your Goldendoodle ate chocolate, contact your vet immediately. If you don’t know if your Goldendoodle ate chocolate, call the vet anyway and let them know what happened so they can start treatment for your pup if necessary.
Educate your family about the danger of chocolate in Goldendoodles to prevent accidental ingestion.
Yes, your Goldendoodle can eat eggs. Eggs are a great source of protein and fatty acids, along with vitamins and minerals. They’re also easy to digest, so they’re good for Goldendoodles who have problems breaking down certain proteins.
However, raw eggs aren’t safe for Goldendoodles—they contain avidin that prevents the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin), which is essential for your Goldendoodle’s health. Biotin helps to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails and plays a role in the production of fatty acids that regulate metabolism. Raw eggs can also contain harmful bacteria such as salmonella, so it’s important to cook them thoroughly before feeding them to your Goldendoodle.
Eggshells are fine as long as you grind them up into small pieces so there are no sharp edges left over.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat fish.
Fish is rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. But all of them are not safe. Smaller, younger, wild-caught, shorter-lived species like salmon, shrimp and tilapia are safe for your Goldendoodle. Avoid longer-lived fish species like tuna, shark or swordfish as they can contain heavy metals like mercury.
Always clean them properly—debone them first and then cook it adding no harmful additives. Feeding your Goldendoodle one or two times per week in small controlled amounts is enough to prevent any health problems.
The simple answer to this question is no. Goldendoodles should not eat ice cream.
Ice cream, even in small amounts, can cause serious health problems for your Goldendoodle. Ice cream contains high amounts of dairy products and sugar, which are both harmful to Goldendoodles. The symptoms of ice cream toxicity include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, and seizures. While these symptoms may not be immediately apparent after eating ice cream, they should be monitored closely if you suspect your Goldendoodle accidentally ate ice cream.
If you believe your Goldendoodle has eaten ice cream, seek veterinary help immediately so they can assess the situation and provide treatment if necessary.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat peanut butter in moderation. Peanut butter provides protein, vitamins and healthy fats. However, ensure the peanut butter is pup safe without xylitol and chocolate. Also, avoid peanut butter pretzels, as it contains 3 times more sodium. Amount depends on the size of your Goldendoodle, but start with a half teaspoon per day
Goldendoodles can eat popcorn, but there are some catches. Plain, air-popped popcorn is safe for Goldendoodles to eat in small quantities as an occasional treat. Popped corn kernels actually contain several minerals important to Goldendoodles, like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc, along with fiber and trace amounts of vitamins. It’s also very low in calories.
However, processed popcorn is not safe for your Goldendoodle. Buttered popcorn or popcorn with other toppings like butter or sugar are not safe for your Goldendoodle because they are high in fat and sugar content. Also, un-popped or partially popped kernels can be a choking hazard and may even cause damage to your Goldendoodle’s teeth if ingested.
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat turkey.
Turkey is safe to feed your Goldendoodle as long as you provide them with cooked lean, white, unseasoned and boneless turkey meat. Turkey breast meat is the best option because it provides protein and fatty acids that your Goldendoodle needs. It also contains minerals like zinc, selenium and phosphorus, which are very beneficial for their health.
However, avoid feeding your Goldendoodle the skin of a turkey because they contain fat, which can cause GI upset and pancreatitis. Also, avoid processed turkey because it may contain harmful preservatives or fillers.
The recommended serving size of white meat turkey or dark meat turkey per 12 pounds body weight for your pooch is 20 grams of white meat turkey or 15 grams of dark meat.
Can Goldendoodles eat yogurt?
Yes, Goldendoodles can eat yogurt. Plain yogurt is a perfectly acceptable snack for Goldendoodles. However, some Goldendoodles may have trouble digesting dairy products, so you should always check with your veterinarian before giving your Goldendoodle any food. One teaspoon of yogurt a day is fine for most Goldendoodles, but if your Goldendoodle has trouble digesting dairy or other food products, it’s best to avoid it entirely.
You’ll want to avoid any yogurts with added sugar, as these can cause digestive issues in some Goldendoodles. Also, skip all yogurts with artificial sweeteners because it can lead to intestinal distress.
There you have it, a list of 37 common fruits, vegetables and snacks Goldendoodles can or cannot eat.
The list includes both fruits like apples and bananas and vegetables like carrots and broccoli. It also includes a few different snacks such as peanut butter and popcorn.
However, with any safe food, follow the 90/10 rule—90% calories should come from your Goldendoodle’s normal food, only 10% from treats like these.
