Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Yes grapes a documented toxicity to dogs and deaths have occurred in some cases. That said just one or two grapes eaten now and again would rarely present a problem to a dog { Although really it is best to feed none at all }

2. As for the toxic amount the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Centre studies suggest that the lowest documented toxic dose was 10 to 12 grapes in a 20 pound dog. You can check this information and read more on this toxicity HERE

3. If you think your dog may in danger then please get back to me ASAP and I will advise you further.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
