New canine-friendly tipples mean the first round is on your hound! Did somebody say dog beer?
Time for a Bark-B-Q!
With summer finally showing its face, it is time to start roasting all those juicy goodies over the charcoal, loading your plate and kicking back with a cold beer. Don’t get too comfy though, as your cheeky hound, never one to turn down the chance to whip a sausage from a wayward plate, can now wash down his booty with his very own dog beer. Among the delectable alcohol-free offerings available to man’s best friend while lazing alfresco, are:
Bottom Sniffer: This cheekily-titled UK brew claims to improve canine wellbeing through its herbal recipe, including: Dandelion and Burdock, Flax nettle, Seaweed extract and Rooibos. According to the manufacturer, doggy bottom sniffing is a means of identifying the diet, emotional state and gender of other canines; Bottom Sniffer is claimed to give your mutt a mouthwatering butt. We expect parched pups to find this natural blend ‘rear-ly’ tasty, so fill up your dog’s bowl (recommended, as opposed to swigging from bottle) and let the sunbathing begin. Bottoms up!
Bowser Beer: Over in the USA, yankee doodle poodles can also get their paws onto dog-friendly beer, thanks to the beef, pork or chicken-flavoured delights of Bowser Beer. Also containing healthy amounts of Vitamin B, Bowser Beer has added glucosamine, for healthy doggy joints. Bowser Beer also supports US working dogs in military combat zones by sending supplies as far as Afghanistan; a very worthy treat for brave dogs!
Snuffle Beer: A non-sparkling Belgian treat, made from beef or chicken, malt barley extracts, mineral oils and containing Vitamin B, Snuffle gives your dog a refreshing alternative to his master’s beverage of choice. So, crack a beefy bottle open and budge up on the lounger, as dog-napping is thirsty work!
Breakfast at Sniff-any’s
The more discerning hound-about-town might turn their nose up at Bottom Sniffer, with their poochy palate looking for something a little more refined. Step forward Woof & Brew’s delicate ‘Pawsecco’ wine, a dog-friendly tipple that will surely quench the thirst of the most sophisticated woofer. Available in Pet-House White and Pet-House Rose’ at £2.99 per bottle, this zingy, grape-free wine is purr-fect for celebrating any doggy occasion.
As with beer, Stateside hounds do not miss an opportunity to put their paws up and chill out … literally. Apollo Peak have expanded their canine wine range, with customers able to select from luscious varieties, including: Chardognay, Malbark, Zinfantail and Doggy Mary. Woof woof to that, we say! Using ingredients as diverse as relaxing Chamomile, refreshing Sea Salt, revitalising Peppermint and errr … Bacon (no, we don’t know either!) flavouring, these wines will add pep to your pup!
So, there you have it, no more excuses to serve your favourite furball plain water in their bowl, when such juicy canine coolers are ready to be served!
