Yes. Melon are safe for dogs to eat and contain several benefits for dogs, including various vitamins and minerals and dietary fiber, among other things.
Melons do have higher sugar content than some other treats, so you want to share it in moderation. Definitely don’t share melon if your dog is diabetic. You also don’t want to give your dog too much dietary fiber—this can be hard on your dog’s digestive system. Be sure to remove the rind and seeds of the melon and offer only a few bites periodically. If you notice any changes in your dog’s bowel movements, you might be sharing too much melon and should back off.
