What is a puppuccino?

What on Earth is a Puppychino?…Pupiccino? …Puppuccino?… However you decide to spell it, if you have been scrolling through pictures of dogs in the last few months like we have, you may well have noticed the puppuccino, a phenomenon making its way to Ireland from across the pond. So what is it? Well, it was dreamt up by Starbucks and started life on their infamous Secret Menu. A small cup of whipped cream perfectly sized for your pup’s nose to fit in… or to get stuck in! With no coffee or caffeine involved, it is a great way for paw-rents to share the sacred ritual of going out for our beloved coffee from the best dog-friendly cafes.

How to order a puppuccino? 

If, like us at Paws Friendly, you see nothing wrong with asking your dog what they would like to do today, why not check out our website and find a nearby dog-friendly cafe serving puppuccinos? Don’t worry about sounding silly, the cafes which do offer puppuccinos are run by equally dog-crazy people, and we thank them for it!

Most places won’t charge you for adding a puppuccino when you are placing an order, however leaving a little tip for their kindness will surely spread good dog karma. 
Are puppuccinos safe? 

Like cheese, Puppuccinos are generally considered safe for dogs, however, they do contain dairy so if your pup is lactose intolerant or has a sensitive stomach, it is best to err on the side of caution until you have consulted with your veterinarian.
