The Puppuccino is one of the best-kept secrets at Starbucks. If you want to pop in to 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 serving of 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, 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. While it’s not on this list, check out the healthiest dog treats next.
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. Plus, can dogs eat ice cream?

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. This is what Dunkin’ was called when it first opened.
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 for your dog to enjoy. The Pooch-ini is a custom-made dessert consisting of dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce and vanilla custard. Did you know this is how the chain got its name?
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. It’s also one of the most convenient fast-food restaurants!
