Check following points before taking any decision >>>>
1) Feeding pets food that we enjoy is not only wrong, it can also be fatal. There are some foodstuffs that humans relish which cause illness and death if eaten by pets.
2) Chocolate, macadamia nuts and onions are good examples. Each of these foods contains chemicals which rarely cause problems for humans, but for dogs, these same chemicals can be deadly.
3) Chocolate contains theobromine, a compound that is a cardiac stimulant and a diuretic.
4) Onions and garlic are other dangerous food ingredients that cause sickness in dogs, cats and also livestock. Onions and garlic contain the toxic ingredient thiosulphate. Onions are more of a danger.
Also, there are lots other Human foods that are highly poisonous to dog. It's my advice to give your dog nutritious & beneficial dog foods like >>> http://www.agritura.com/index.php/cat/c380_Dog-Food.html

Lots of human foods are good for dogs, but remember if it is unhealthy for us do not feed it to your dogs(ie fast food etc.)Humans foods are what make up dry kibble though the cooking process destroys many nutrients, not to mention dog kibble is full of bad by-products and preservatives(and a low standard of ingrediants). Lean meats and most vegetables are good for them. I advise researching this to avoid giving anything toxic. But here is a list of things I know are toxic.
Xylitol ( found in candy and gum)
Garlic is supposed to have the same toxins found in onions though in a smaller amount. But in moderation is good for them. Though debatable I would discuss with your VET.
Tomatoes are ok but only in moderation ant definitely not tomatoe leaves.
I am sure I am Leaving something off.
Also, corn is not toxic but highly undigestable, which is why I can't understand dog food companies repeatably using it for filler. Liver is great for them, and full of vitamina a, but be careful not to give more than a few times a month.
