I have owned dogs my entire life, and could not live without them. I adopted my dog Daisy three years ago, and she brings joy and happiness into every day. I enjoy making home made dog treats for my baby, and I take care to make sure my dog has the best food possible!

  1. BEWARE OF THE GAS!!!! My dog got into a plate I had out and OMG did my apartment smell bad afterwards… Must of been farting non stop for the entire night. My advice is if your dog eats any, make sure you crack the window!

  2. Whenever I have any, I usually give my dog one or two of the pod (shell) things. I don’t notice any bad gas, but its really not much. He really likes it.

  3. Thanks, my dog just ate an entire plate of raw edamame beans… I guess I now have to prepare myself… At least they were not covered in salt.

  4. Sometimes I give my dog a couple edamame beans in her food. I heard that it is high in protein and it is healthy for the dog.

    1. A couple beans can be good for your dog. They are high in protein which is good, but too much will give your dog an upset stomach. If your dog needs more protein I would recommend something other than edamame.
