Dog friendly plants

Hi I'm looking to redo my garden at the minute and would like some help in compiling a list of dog friendly plants, I have a springer spaniel who likes to grab a mouthful of grass on walks so expect her to do same in garden although I will deter this I don't want any harm doing to her if she does. Hope you can help me. Thanks
Maybe they've evolved to NOT eat them? Just a thought.
Neither dog has been poisoned, yet both were/are keen grass munchers.
Most toxins are bitter or unpleasant, and dogs seem to know which to avoid.
I leave a patch of grass to grow long at the end of the lawn and she munches away on that and spends ages munching grass on the fields most days.
And when the runner beans are ready, I never seem to get any beans below dog height....
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
If your springer is a typical live-wire you might want to think about robust plants and avoid anything too delicate or easily trampled! I also put iron hoops across the front of one of my borders to stop my spaniel charging through after piegons and squirrels. Not sure if that'll work for a long-legged springer though!
