Yes! In fact, blackberries are relatively low in sugar and calories, so they’re a good choice if you’re wanting to offer your pet the occasional sweet treat.

Are Any Berries Poisonous to Dogs?

Other berries, like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are all safe treats for your dog to have in moderation. Cherries are the exception: they can be potential choking hazards for your pup due to the pits, and nearly every part of cherries contains cyanide, which is toxic to dogs. You should also avoid feeding other berries with pits to your pup.


The fruit that should always be avoided is grapes and raisins, which can cause kidney failure. For any uncertainties regarding your dog’s health, we recommend contacting your dog’s vet.
