Our furry friends are big parts of our lives, so it’s only natural that we want to treat them when we treat ourselves. And Starbucks puppuccinos are the perfect way to do that!

So what is a puppuccino?

Well, a puppuccino is just a puppy-sized Starbucks cup filled with whipped cream! 

Sounds simple enough, but pups are going crazy for this delicious doggy treat!

Are puppuccinos safe for dogs?

Most dogs can enjoy a delicious dairy treat like whipped cream. But, like all the sweet things in life, they're best enjoyed in moderation. 

If your pet struggles with a sensitivity to dairy or any other digestive issues, give them a little tester and see how they react first. Too much whipped cream could lead to vomiting, diarrhoea, and gas.

How do I order a puppuccino in the UK?

You won't see puppuccinos on the menu and, unfortunately, you can't order them in advance with the Starbucks app or through their delivery service. Indeed, the puppuccino is one of Starbucks’ secret menu items!

But Starbucks staff are all aware of the puppy beverage, so just ask for a puppuccino the next time you end a nice long walk at your local Starbucks store.

How much do puppuccinos cost?

Puppuccinos are completely free of charge, although letting the dog-friendly staff give your beloved pet a few strokes seems fair enough. Plus, they might even get a few extra squirts of cream in their cup!

Given all the positive puppy feedback, we reckon the puppuccino is here to stay.
