Hooray for dog friendly restaurants! Not only do they make the dining experience more enjoyable by allowing our zodiac signs to tag along, but they also give us a great excuse to eat in the first place: “Yeah, I stopped by In-N-Out just because Barkley here was craving a Pup Patty, but, since I’m here, I might as well have a Double Double, Fries, and Vanilla shake to go, please.”
1. Starbucks: Puppuccino

If your dog is up to a shot of dairy now and then, invite her to a Starbucks Puppucino. It’s just a small cup filled with whipped cream.
2. In ‘N’ Out: Unsalted Pup Patty, The Dutch Flying (Doggie Version)
Next time you catch a Double Double for yourself, treat your dog to a “Pup Patty,” a simple duck without the salt, delivered in a doggie bag. Or if your pooch deserves something extra special and dairy-y, go for the Pup Patty Flying Dutchman: two cheese patties stuffed into two burger patties (make sure you ask for the unsalted puppy patties!).
3. Sprinkles: Doggie Cupcakes
Sprinkles’ menu offers dog cakes that are essentially sugar-free versions of their signature scrumptious cupcakes topped with yogurt frosting.
4. Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt: Frosty Paws or Dogsters Icy Treats

The Handel Ice Cream Series carries dog-friendly ice creams like Frosty Paws or Dogsters, a vet-approved icy treat available in a peanut butter and mint flavor.
5. Tim Hortons: Doggie “Timbits”

Fans of “Temps” by the bite-sized “Temps”? Did you know that you can also order your puppy a sugar-free dog version? Now do it, so there’s no excuse for not picking up a treat for your dog.
6. Dairy Queen (some locations): Puppy Cup

Not only will some DQ sites serve your pup, but they’ll do it for free. Call your local Dairy Queen to see if they offer Pup Cups, then bring your dog round for the royal treat.
7. Shake Shack: Pooch-ini, Bag O’ Bones
Like Sprinkles, this dog-friendly establishment has pooch stuff right on the regular menu. These include the Pooch-ini (dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce, and custard) and the Bag O’ Bones (five ShackBurger dog treats).
8. Rock and Bros: The Dog List

Rock & Brews is one of the more dog-friendly restaurants out there, featuring a full menu only for owners and pets are welcome to dine with you on their patio area where they are given a dog dish upon request.

Although dogs are welcome at all Johnny Rockets locations, and a water bowl is offered upon request, the restaurants have a dog menu featuring items like dog hamburgers, skim ice cream, and even pupcakes.
10. Le-Quotidienne dog treats
Do you feel like drinking coffee and pastries? Grab your dog, and head on to Le Bain Quotidienne! Dogs are welcome in their outdoor seating area, and dog shows are given by the staff upon request.
11. Culver (some locations): Vanilla Scoop with Milkbone Biscuit

We love Culver’s for its fresh, fresh and creamy frozen sauce. Your dog will love serving these milk bone biscuits inside a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Check to see if your local Culver’s offers this comforting treat for friends!
12. Lazy Dog Cafe: Doggie Rice Plate
The dog-friendly meal is definitely something you’d expect from a place called Lazy Dog Cafe, and this dish is SO good! Treat your pup to a large portion of beef with a side of rice. Borrowed.
