No. While caramel is not toxic for dogs, it is never a good idea to feed your dog raw sugar. Sugar can cause dental disease, obesity and diabetes in dogs (as it does in humans). If your dog consumes too much sugar, you might see a change in behavior such as hyperactivity or difficulty concentrating, followed by lethargy or irritability. Monitor your dog after eating any caramel, and call your vet if you have any concerns.
