Sugar is safe for dogs

Sugar is not toxic to dogs, but it is unhealthy. Natural sugars found in their food are fine but It’s best to avoid feeding your dog raw sugar or any foods which contain additional sugar. Over time, sugar can lead to obesity and diabetes, both of which can cause a multitude of health problems. Eating sugary foods can also lead to an upset stomach and diarrhea. Make sure to avoid artificial sugars as some, such as xylitol, are toxic to dogs.
