6. it also depends on the kind of chocolate
a bitter dark chocolate is much worse for a dog than sweet milk chocolate, because of the amount of methylxanthine alkaloids. Baking chocolate is the most dangerous, and white chocolate is the least dangerous. For cookies with your run-of-the-mill semisweet chips, theres probably no need to make him vomit... once he burns off the sugar he should crash and be okay.

Every once in a while, I share a Reese's PB cup with my dogs, and as long as I keep it at that, they're okay.
