The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:
*1) Burn more calories then you're consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity. Get a fitness calculator that you can put on your cell phone and computer. This will allow you to easily calculate this formula, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.
*2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.
Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as white potatoes) and drink lots of water.
Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow: http://www.rayandterry.com/html/images/P...
*3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.
Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure your doing all resistance training exercises correctly. A great book to buy that teaches you the resistance training basics is “Weight Training for Dummies”. A superb magazine to buy with excellent resistance training routines that will not get you bored is "Muscle and Fitness". Signup for the free newsletter.
A good book to buy that teaches you the cardiovascular training basics is “Fitness for Dummies”.
*4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.
*5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is “Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005”. A superb book to read is “You The Owner’s Manual”. An excellent periodic publication is the “Nutrition Action Health Letter”. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at http://realage.com
Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier. Email me if you want a good indoor air purifier recommendation and if you have other questions.

"Human foods" that my dog gets on occasion are baby carrots, apple slices, oranges, peanut butter, romaine lettuce, yogurt (1 tablespoon), cottage cheese (1 tablespoon), and dried seaweed (like used in sushi). (Note: fruits and veggies should always be fresh, not cooked.)
This website lists things that you should avoid giving her because they are toxic to dogs:

chocolate, raisins, grapes... but its best for her not to eat any... just because it causes begging, which is not a good behavior for her to learn. also if you feed her table scraps she is eating more.. so you might want to cut down on her regular food so she doesn't get over weight..

The other answers have given good advice on what NOT to feed. Whatever you do feed, make sure you put in in her dog bowl and feed her after you have eaten. Never feed from the table itself, as this will produce begging behaviour. BTW, for teething puppies, a carrot nicely cooled in the fridge usually goes down well.

Do NOT give your dog chocolate, onions, grapes, or raisins - they're toxic to dogs. High-fat foods should only be given in very small quantities, if at all - too much fat can cause pancreatitis.
The ASPCA poison control site says you should also avoid macadamia nuts, avocados, alcohol, garlic and chives, and uncooked yeast dough. Cow's milk should be avoided (lactose intolerance), but a little bit of plain yogurt occasionally is OK (the lactose in yogurt has been converted to a digestible form).
Veggies such as green beans, carrots, squash, and pumpkin are fine in moderate quantities, as long as they're unsalted. Broccoli is OK if you only give a little, but too much can cause gas & bloating. My dog gets unsalted green beans with her supper to keep her waistline trim, and she loves them. We also give her bits of other safe veggies occasionally, and sometimes a spoonful of plain yogurt.

Human is food is no good for dogs. The only thing that should ever be fed is plain chicken & rice for dogs with stomach aches. Dog's become hooked on human food & won't eat their own food if its continued. Human food is fattening & full of sugar. There is TONS that are toxic, such as onions, grapes or raisens, chocolate, garlic, nuts, potato peelings, ruhbarb, spoiled foods, alcohol, tea & coffee, tomato leaves, brocolli, mushrooms, salt & yeast dough. Please discontinue or you will have a very fat dog.

No choc, raisins, grapes or onions, they can kill or seriously make the dog sick. Otherwise nothing spicy, greasy, or highly seasoned. Give tablefood in small amounts to prevent upset digestive systems. Cooked veggies or chopped up fine are good, most fruits preferably overripe and cooked meat w/o fat are all OK. Rice or plain pasta too. Do not give too much as it will throw off the nutrition in her dog food.

If you are feeding a breed such as a Great Dane then absolutely NO puppy food of any kind including large breed..the protein and calcium levels are way to high and can cause serious growth issues.

Originally Answered: is it okay if you use human organic shampoo for your dog?
Dog shampoo is preferable (the oatmeal kinds seem to work best for sensitive dogs) but some human shampoos work well. If you don't mind risking some itching and skin irritation, go ahead. It may be fine, but sensitive dogs may experience drying of the skin or excessive itching. Organic ingredients doesn't mean hypoallergenic or gentle.
