Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
No, but it could be unwise to do so without asking the owner. For example, the dog could turn out to be vicious. Or the dog could have allergies, or a medical condition.
But if you're asking whether it is an illegal act per se to give a dog a treat, the answer is no.
