That's very strange, considering that onion and garlic are toxic to dogs.

The organosulfoxides (sulfurs) in onions, garlic, leeks and chives react with the cell membranes of the red blood cells of dogs, causing the cells to lyse (explode). Cats are even more sensitive to the lytic effects of allium (onion family) toxicosis than dogs.
It is a common myth that a small amount of onions or garlic is not harmful to dogs. In fact, many homemade dog treat recipes include garlic powder as a flavoring because dogs tend to love it so much. Dogs are more tolerant of garlic than onions, and small amounts of either often do not produce effects that are noticed.

be very careful how much you use.

I made a fruit salad the other day that was basically chunks of fresh pineapple and papaya with sal con limon and cayenne sprinkled on it. Cayenne goes particularly well with fresh tropical fruit.

Growing up, I had a malamute who loved nothing more than to pull onions out of the garden and devour them. She lived until 15, fairly old for a dog of that size. She was apparently impervious to any toxic properties of onions over those 15 years.

If you're looking for savory, garlic powder, onion powder, and FRESH squeezed lemon juice will improve the taste of almost anything. Good luck with your cooking experiments

Some people can smoke their whole lives and not get lung cancer. It doesn't mean it's good for you.
