The Puppuccino is one of the best-kept secrets at Starbucks. If you want to pop in Starbucks for a Frappuccino, you don’t have to look into your dog’s sad eyes as they watch you drink away. Just order a Puppuccino for your canine companion. It’s a small cup filled with whipped cream served in an espresso cup or sample size cold beverage cup. You can order it by name or simply ask for whipped cream in a cup. The Puppuccino is usually free, too!
Dairy Queen Pup Cup
Your dog will go nuts for a Pup Cup. It’s a mini sundae with Dairy Queen’s vanilla soft serve and topped with a dog biscuit. Based on our research, a Pup Cup costs $1.39—and at certain locations your dog might even get more than one biscuit. Some dogs are sensitive to dairy, so consult with your vet before trying this one for the first time.
Sprinkles Doggie Cupcakes
Sprinkles is a destination that everyone should try at least once, especially after knowing that its famous cupcakes are extended to dogs. Look for a special Pupcake that’s made with yogurt frosting and only costs $2.50.

Sonic Dog Treats
It makes sense that Sonic would be a pet-friendly restaurant since you never even step foot inside. You order and eat in your car or at an outdoor dining area. If you have your pet with you, they’ll often bring you a doggie treat so you won’t have to eat alone.
Culver’s Dog Treats
Known for frozen custard, Culver’s offers dog biscuits in its drive-thru. Sometimes the milk bone will come with a scoop of vanilla frozen custard, too. Be wary of your pet consuming too much dairy and sugar, but this sweet treat is the perfect portion.
Dunkin’ Puppy Latte
Certain Dunkin’ drive-thrus keep dog treats handy. According to social media posts, some Dunkin’ locations offer puppy lattes, or a Cup for Pup. The “latte” is a four-ounce cup of whipped cream without any flavoring or extra additives.
Ben & Jerry’s Doggie Desserts
The widely acclaimed ice cream company is known for its dog-friendly workspace, and recently they introduced frozen treats made specially for dogs. The pet-friendly flavors even come in signature Ben & Jerry’s pints.
Shake Shack Pooch-ini
An East Coast favorite that’s known for its delicious burgers and milkshakes, Shake Shack has the Pooch-ini on their menu for your dog to enjoy. The Pooch-ini is a custom-made dessert consisting of dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce and vanilla custard.
You can also order the Bag O’Bones, which is five ShackBurger dog biscuits in a convenient doggy bag. These are specially made by Bocce’s Bakery in New York.
Johnny Rockets Dog Burger
If you sit in the outdoor patio areas at Johnny Rockets, ask for a cut-up burger patty and water. The Johnny Rockets in Southern California’s Victoria Gardens restaurant even teamed up with a local dog bakery to put together a 20-item menu for dogs that includes Lickety Split Ice Cream and Pupcakes.
In-N-Out Pup Patty
In-N-Out is a must whenever you’re in California, even for your four-legged friend. If you’re in the mood for a burger and want to share, order a Pup Patty from the dog secret menu. It’s a plain, unseasoned burger patty with no salt.
You can also order your dog a Flying Dutchman, which is two slices of cheese in between two beef patties.
Lazy Dog Rice Plate
Lazy Dog is known for its dog-loving inspiration. Here, patrons are encouraged to sit at the outside patio and share people foods with their furry best friends. This establishment offers a five-star meal of cut up beef and rice for your pet.
Tim Hortons Sugar-Free Timbits
Canadian superpower Tim Hortons offers its famous Timbits to doggies in a plain, dog-friendly form. (If you’re not familiar, Timbits are similar to Dunkin’ Munchkins.)
PDQ Grilled Chicken Tenders
While not necessarily a secret dog menu item, PDQ’s grilled chicken tenders are fresh and never frozen. These safe-to-eat tenders are the perfect chicken treats to grab with your pup.
