Chocolates are not the only things that are bad for dogs, although chocolate is one of the worst. Here is a website with all the things you should not feed your dog. http://mooreshaven.com/pets/dogs/safety/badfoodlist/html

The main problem with most chocolate is theobromine which is poisonous to dogs, probably other animals as well, I think that dark (plain) chocolate has a higher amount of theobromine than milk chocolate. You can get chocolate made especially for dogs which is perfectly harmless ('Good Boy' doggy chocolate being one which can be bought in most pet shops).

Yep chocolates are bad for dogs...you can make them taste a little of it but make sure that you don't feed your dog chocolates everyday or even give your dog one whole bar...sometimes I let my dogs eat a small piece of chocolate but i only do it like once or twice a year...

Yes chocolate is poisonous to dogs and it can be fetal. Chocolate contains a chemical called theobromine which is toxic to dogs. The amount of theobromine is different depending of the type of chocolate. If a dog eats chocolate and gets poisioned (it depends on the amount of chocolate, the type of chocolate, and the dogs size) it might experience vomiting, diarrhea, excess urination, seizures, irregular heartbeat and coma. Very scary, poor dogs.

Dogs are allergic to chocolate products, cats are as well. Every dog has a different tolerence and depending on what that is it could either make them sick or cause fatality. My uncles labrador retreive ate a entire big bag of M&Ms and never even threw up... wheras I have heard horror storeies about dogs eating candy bars and dying. It really depends. Just try to keep things that are hazardous to your pets life away from their reach and all should be well.
