Yes
Raw potatoes are perfectly fine for dogs.
Skin and all, it is easily digestable.

Eat up little pup!

Jon, thanks for sharing the tip however we’ve read from multiple reputable sources that raw potatoes are not okay for dogs to eat as they are not easy on their stomach.

Doug, cooked potatoes are fine but raw potatoes contain solanine which can be toxic for dogs including the fact that it’s hard for them to digest.
