It is no secret that dog parents love spoiling their pups. So, establishments accommodated.
If you're looking for somewhere to take your pooch for a treat after a busy day, a long walk, or a trip to the vet, check out these nine restaurants with secret dog menu items and dog-friendly cuisine!
Keep in mind that most of these items should be fed as a treat only and not on a regular basis. For dogs with special diets or dogs that are sensitive to dairy, these items may upset their belly.
Don't forget that everything is in moderation
