Sugar isn't good for dogs. Nor is it necessary.They can't metabolize it well. You've got a great recipe ripe with natural sugars ~ veg as naturally sweet as *yams* and carrots.
However, if you have a recipe where you feel it definitely needs *something* use black-strap molasses, never refined or even cane sugar.
