These restau­rants have hid­den menus of­fer­ing spe­cial items es­pe­cially for pups!

Off-menu com­bos and lim­ited-time ad­di­tions (think the Star­bucks’ brightly coloured Uni­corn Frap­puc­cino craze) have been tak­ing the restau­rant world by storm lately. But did you know that some spots have yummy, un­pub­li­cized treats just for four-legged pa­trons? Just think of the fun—and the photo ops just made for In­sta­gram shar­ing! Not all lo­ca­tions have these pup-friendly of­fer­ings avail­able, so it is worth check­ing ahead of time to avoid dis­ap­point­ment and those sad, puppy-dog eyes, and re­mem­ber that these fun of­fer­ings are meant to be a very oc­ca­sional treat. Also, just like peo­ple, not all dog tum­mies can han­dle dairy. If your pup has any food sen­si­tiv­i­ties or al­ler­gies, check with your vet be­fore in­dulging in these treats.

Shake Shack – Pooch-ini & Bag O’Bones

Treat your furry friend to a Pooch-ini and maybe they won’t try to steal your fries! This doggy dessert fea­tures vanilla cus­tard, peanut but­ter sauce, and dog bis­cuits made es­pe­cially for all Shake Shack lo­ca­tions, mi­nus sta­dium and air­port lo­cales, by a NYC bak­ery. You can also grab a Bag O’Bones, which is five dog bis­cuits packed for the road!

Rock & Brews – The Dog Side of the Menu

This chain, founded by some of Amer­ica’s Rock and Roll roy­alty (Kiss’ Gene Sim­mons, for one) serves com­fort food for the whole fam­ily, pooch in­cluded, in a lively set­ting with a dog-friendly pa­tio. Ask for The Dog Side of the Menu and your pup can feast on ba­con, a grilled hot dog, mini burger pat­ties or grilled chicken breast. They even have Bowser Beer

for Dogs (that would be beef, pork, or chicken-flavoured non­al­co­holic “beer” for dogs) to wash it all down!

Sprin­kles Cup­cakes – Dog­gie Cup­cakes

Con­sid­ered one of the first cup­cake bak­eries, Sprin­kles makes it easy for you to get your sugar fix with re­tail shops, cup­cake ATMs, and door-to-door de­liv­ery—but did you know that they have treats for dogs on the menu? The Dog­gie cup­cake fea­tures sugar-free cake topped with yo­gurt “frost­ing” and a cute lit­tle bone.

Star­bucks – Pup­puc­cino

Next time you swing by for your caf­feine fix, bring Fido along and ask for a Pup­puc­cino. While this may sound fancy, it is sim­ply an espresso cup filled with whipped cream! Dogs will love the light, sweet treat and you will love how adorable they look when it in­evitably gets all over their snout.

In-N-Out – Pup Patty

While this fran­chise has a well-known hu­man se­cret menu (An­i­mal Style, any­one?), you can also snag a Pup Patty—a plain ham­burger patty with no salt or sea­son­ings. If you feel like re­ally spoil­ing your dog, ask for the Fly­ing Dutch­man, which is two beef pat­ties and two slices of cheese!

Dairy Queen – Pup Cup

Do you and your ca­nine com­pan­ion share a sweet tooth? Head over to Dairy Queen and or­der a Pup Cup. The small serv­ing of vanilla soft serve will re­ally hit the spot for ice cream lov­ing dogs!
