Make A Barkuterie Board For Your Pet

Oct 8, 2021 | Pets, Treat Recipes

Happy “Friday Treats Friday” everyone!  I’ve posted before about Charcuterie Boards but have you ever heard of Barkuterie Boards?  Yes, there is such a thing.  I thought up this idea a few weeks back and thought I was so clever but after researching, I’ve found that these have been around for a long time now.  Just ask BringFido who have blogged about many of their Barkuterie Boards!

There is so much to think about when creating this fun snack for your pup.  Charcuterie Boards are packed full of foods our fur babies cannot eat so we have to add what they can eat.  So off I went to the grocery store only to come home and realize that I paid for strawberries and broccoli but they were missing!  Somehow they were left at the register so I came up with a different plan and used a combination of dog treats, cheese, fruit, and toys and I think these two boards came out really cute!  Jake and Maggie’s mouths were watering as I was creating these boards.  You can rest assure these were doggie approved.

This is a great idea if you are having a puppy party or any pet party for that matter!  Every year we celebrate Jake and Maggie’s birthday and you better believe these boards are on the menu for next year!  It is no different than setting up for a regular party so why not display your Barkuterie boards throughout the house if you can.  I placed one in our kitchen and another on a buffet table in another room.  Food placement is a big deal as well as color combinations and choices of food.  You absolutely do not want to add anything toxic to the board your pet will eat.

Create a visual stimulating board and use color in a fun way as I did with these Halloween toys I found on the sale rack at Pet Supplies Plus.
Mix texture and different sizes to your board.  For example: broccoli along with yogurt.
Make sure to introduce human food in small amounts, and avoid items toxic to dogs such as chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins, artificial sweeteners, and avocados.
Create boards that have a combination of pet foods, treats, and pet toys.
If you need to add height with containers, make sure they are pet safe.

Interested in more pet recipes, check out my previous posts here and below!  And as always, thanks for stopping by!  Just an FYI…Jake and Maggie did not eat all of these boards.  They were allowed a few nibbles to enjoy but just enough not to get sick.  These Barkuterie Boards will last us awhile 🙂

      Honestly this was a lot of fun. I wasn’t sure how to display everything on the board but it came out nice. Too bad I didn’t have my strawberries and broccoli that I paid for :-(. The dogs loved their treat boards 🙂
