    Hi Rich,
    Absolutely use green beans as a filler! They are not fattening and they're actually very good for the dogs. Make sure you get the unsalted version. I give my boys about 2 tbs with each meal. Alot of people here feed alot more than that though.
    Is your lab overweight?

    Green beans are great for Labs, especially if they want more food than they need (and what Lab doesn't?). You can use fresh, frozen, or canned - but if you use canned, make sure you rinse them to remove the salt. What I do is drain the liquid out with my fingers over top of the can, refill with water, drain again - and do that three times total with the fresh water.

    Since switchng Buddy over to a grain-free food, he gets a half-cup less kibble per meal so I add half of a can of green beans to each meal to help fill him up. That gives him one whole can per day. When I had an overweight Golden, he got a whole can with each meal.
