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.
1. Starbucks "Secret" Dog Menu
The next time you swing in to pick up your fancy caffeinated beverage, don't forget to order a "Puppuccino" for your four-legged pal.
They'll gladly hand over a small cup filled with whipped cream for your pup to enjoy.
2. Shake Shack
You can order the Pooch-ini for your dog, which is a vanilla custard with peanut butter sauce and a dog biscuit for your pup to devour.
Or you can order the Bag O'Bones, which is five ShackBurger dog biscuits in a convenient doggy bag.
3. Select Johnny Rockets
All dogs are welcome at all Johnny Rockets locations, and are offered a bowl of fresh water, on the house of course. Some locations, like Chino Hills, California, offer a dog menu with a few items to choose from.
These items include hamburgers, ice cream, and pupcakes. Life is ruff.
You can order the Pup Patty, which is a plain burger patty without salt for your four-legged friend.
It's a rumor that the Flying Dutchman, two patties with cheese and no bun, was added to the menu years ago with customers' pups in mind.
5. Tim Horton's
Famous for their Timbits, which are mini donuts, Tim Horton's offers plain Timbits without the added sugar, for your pooch.
If you ask for a pet-friendly Timbit, they will gladly give you one, with a limit of one per pooch.
6. Dairy Queen
Ask for a Pup Cup and they will give you a small cup of vanilla soft serve for your pup!
Some locations charge for the Pup Cup and others do not. Either way, your dog will be in dessert heaven!
7. Culver's Ice Cream
Most locations give Milk Bones to dogs that come through the drive through.
Some locations will serve their Milk Bones in a small scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Because Sonic is a drive-in style restaurant, dogs are always welcome!
Some locations will bring you treats for your pooch with your meal.
Some locations have treats for dogs that come through the drive through!
Also, check your local businesses. Places with drive-through windows (fast food restaurants, banks, etc.) sometimes have treats on hand for pooches riding shotgun. Or they'll sneak a little extra something in your order that is pooch-friendly.
