As a dog parent, you probably thought you knew all the ways to spoil your beloved canine-until now!
Loved by dogs all over the world, Puppuccinos are a great occasional treat for your doggie to enjoy while you sip on your own coffee. In this blog post, we’ll give you the low-down on how to make one for your pooch, what ingredients and equipment you need, and how often you can treat your pet to this delicious treat.
What is a Puppuccino?
Puppuccinos are a popular Starbucks menu item made especially for our four legged friends. It is basically just an empty cup filled with good old-fashioned dog-friendly whipped cream. It is a massive hit with both humans and dogs alike, so why not spoil your fur baby by creating your own puppuccino below!
What You Will Need:
- Dog friendly whipped cream (such as Kong Stuff’N Puppy)
- An espresso cup or toy you can stuff (such as Kong Classic or Sodapup Coffee Cup)
- A doggie treat or some biscuits to put on top (such as Bonio Dog Biscuits)
How To Make a Puppuccino:
- To make a puppuccino, fill a small cup, bowl, or toy with some dog-friendly whipped cream.
- Top with a yummy small dog treat, some sprinkles for good measureand serve immediately.
- Make sure to take lots of photos of your dog enjoying his pup cup-you don’t want to miss this cute mess!
How Often Can I Give My Dog a Puppuccino?
Like all treats, puppuccinos should be served in moderation. These should not be given daily-not even weekly! A puppuccino is an occasional fun treat, such as at your dog’s birthday pawty. Too much of these desserts can easily upset your pup’s stomach and cause issues down the road if provided in excess.
What Should I Avoid in My Puppuccino?
It goes without saying that you should avoid anything that your dog is allergic to. If you have a dog with many allergies or sensitivities, it will be harder to create a safe puppuccino for them. Always stick to dog-safe whipped cream and avoid altogether if your dog is lactose intolerant.
In addition to individual restrictions and sensitivities, there are certain things you’ll want to avoid for all of your pups. These include:
- Artificial sweeteners, especially xylitol
- Nuts, particularly almonds
- High fat cream
- Raw dough
- Excessive sugar
