Lobster is safe for dogs

Dogs can eat lobster. Lobster is a good source of protein and relatively low in fat and calories. It is a good source of vitamin B12, zinc, phosphorus, copper, and selenium. When feeding lobster to your dog, it is important to cook it first as raw lobster can contain harmful bacteria or parasites. It is best to serve the meat plain and avoid any ingredients that may be harmful to your dog, such as garlic, salt, butter, or mayonnaise. Try and avoid the shell since large pieces can cause a blockage or have sharp edges which can cause problems if swallowed.
