We all love going out with our pets, this includes taking out dogs or cats to our favorite places, parks, and even cafes.
Fortunately, there are now lots of places and cafes that allow pets in their stores or patios. In Starbucks’ case, you can go with your pet to the patio or seating area, so you can have a cup of coffee while enjoying some time with your partner.
But you wouldn’t want them to just sit there and wait until you finish your drink or breakfast, they deserve something too! But can you purchase something for your pet at Starbucks? Let’s find out!
Does Starbucks Have Pup Cups?
Yes, you can get pup cups at Starbucks for your dog and maybe even some cats. Pup cups are a delicious treat for dogs made with sweetened whipped cream, milk or water, and ice. Pup cups are completely free at Starbucks, so you and your furry friend can enjoy a coffee date together.
Starbucks gave a nice fun name for these dog treat called “Puppucino” so it keeps the whole cafe experience even for dogs!
If you want to know more about how these pup cups or puppucinos are made, how healthy they are, and how much it’ll cost you then we suggest you keep reading!
What Are Pup Cups?
Pup cups are very simple treats for customers to feed their dogs which come in a small cup so dogs can stick their face in and get to the bottom. Most of the time, a pup cup is a small cup filled with whipped cream, milk or water, and ice you can give to your dogs while you eat.
Some ice cream shops also make their version of pup cups with ice cream specifically made for dogs. The ingredients and flavor may vary from peanut butter, bacon, and any other food that dogs like as a treat.
Does Starbucks Still Do Pup Cups?
Yes! You can get pup cups at any Starbucks as of 2022, and we don’t think they’ll be gone anytime soon.
If you happen to go to a Starbucks where they don’t serve pup cups, just ask and they will point you in the right direction.
How Do You Order a Pup Cup on Starbucks App?
You can’t order a pup cup using the Starbucks app, this is because the Pupuccino as Starbucks calls it, is not actually on the menu.
The only way you can get a Puppucino is by being at the store and asking the barista for one, and of course, you need to have a dog or a cat with you, so you wouldn’t be able to get one for yourself
Is Starbucks Pup Pup Safe for Dogs?
The pup cup at Starbucks is not too bad for them, it only consists of whipped cream, so giving them this as a treat every once in a while is usually safe for most dogs and some cats, but you have to be aware of your pet having digestive issues or any other condition that might make you think twice about buying a pup cup.
These are the ingredients needed to make a Puppucino, in case you want to give a little treat to your dog, but you want to be extra careful with what you get.
- Mono and diglycerides.
- Manufactured vanilla syrup.
Some of these ingredients could be slightly harmful to your dog but it depends on a lot of factors, so if you have a very healthy young dog, chances are he’ll enjoy the treat and nothing will happen.
In any case, it would be a good idea to ask your vet, just so you can be sure before your next visit to Starbucks.
Is a Puppucino Safe for Cats?
It’s not too dangerous but it’s not healthy either. Contrary to popular belief, most cats are lactose intolerant, and Puppucinos are basically just whipped cream, so it can be bad for your cat.
However, you can still give your cat small spoonfuls of it, if you think your cat is healthy enough and can handle milk.
While the “free” price tag and fun idea are very tempting, Puppucinos are not very healthy for your pets but as long as you don’t make it a habit it will probably be ok.
Is There a Starbucks Dog Menu?
There is no actual dogs menu at Starbucks, and the reason for this is that there are not enough meals or drinks, it’s just that one special “Puppucino”, which is still a nice thing to offer to customers with pets.
The Puppucino would actually be a part of Starbucks’ secret menu, however contrary to other secret menu drinks, almost every Starbucks employee or barista will know what you are talking about just by saying the name.
When you want something from Starbucks’ secret menu It’s better to ask for drinks by telling the barista the ingredients, thankfully with the Puppucino, it’s so easy to remember that you just need to ask for it by name and that’s it.
How Much Does a Puppucino Cost?
They are completely free! So yes, you actually just have to ask for it, but even though it’s not a rule, you should buy something else too, or at least give a tip to the barista, since they are giving you a good service.
It’s good to know that our favorite places are being more and more welcoming to all kinds of people and even animals, so much so that they even offer a special treat to your pets completely free.
Starbucks has gone through some changes with its pet policy since they opened, and now they are even trying to get the “Puppucino” on the official menu, so it’s great to see how far they’ve come.
Hopefully, we will get more Starbucks with patios, so that more customers can experience the joy of bringing their pets to Starbucks, and who knows, maybe someday a pet menu may become a reality.
