A Starbucks cup.

Coffee runs are more fun when your dog is by your side. And now, when you go to Starbucks for your caffeine fix, you can get a little something extra for your pup to enjoy. It’s called a puppuccino, and it’s available on Starbucks’s secret menu.

We love that Starbucks offers this item for dogs, because it means that we can get our pup a little treat while on a road trip, or when visiting a new city. It’s just a nice surprise for my dogs. Hit up your nearest Starbucks and treat yo’ self, and your dog!

What is a Puppuccino?

A puppuccino is whipped cream served in an espresso or sample size Starbucks cup. 

Yup, just whipped cream! There’s no caffeine, or harmful additives. 

It’s on Starbucks’s secret menu, and is available for all good dogs. 

How do you order a Puppuccino?

Simply ask for a puppuccino or for some whipped cream in a cup for your pup.

Are Puppuccinos safe for dogs?

Yes, when eaten in moderation. 

Whipped cream is generally fine for dogs, as long as they don’t have too much.

Your dog shouldn’t be downing puppuccinos every day, but one here and there as a special treat should be fine. 

How much do Puppuccinos cost?

Puppuccinos are free!

Yup, that’s right, your dog can enjoy a delicious puppuccino for no cost at all, which is good since my dog has no money.

I always ask for one when I’m ordering my own Starbucks drink.

If you’re not ordering a drink along with your puppuccino, then be warned that you might be charged for it. If you’re not charged and you still get it for free (score!), be sure you tip your barista generously.

What’s in a Starbucks Puppuccinos?

Starbucks whipped cream. 

According to Starbucks, their whipped cream contains cream, milk, mono and diglycerides and carrageenan.

Sounds scary huh? Let’s break it down:

  1. Cream
  2. Milk
  3. Mono and diglycerides – to prevent separation and keep the texture right.
  4. Carrageenan – used to make sure the liquid stays mixed. 

Can you order a Puppuccino on the Starbucks app?

Unfortunately, because puppuccinos are not on the actual Starbucks menu, you can’t order them through the Starbucks app in advance or get them delivered to your door. 

You can order them in person and when using the drive through.

Can I get a puppuccino at other locations?

No Starbucks nearby? Is that even possible?

Not to worry. You can get similar items at other chains.

Dunkin’ Donuts offers puppy lattes. They’re similar to puppuccinos – whipped cream in a cup. 

Shake Shack sells the Pooch-ini, a doggy dessert made of dog biscuits and vanilla custard. They also sell a Bag O’ Bones, which is a bag of five dog biscuits made by New York’s Bocce’s Bakery. 

Dairy Queen offers Pup Cups, which is a dog treat smack dab in the middle of vanilla ice cream.

Has your dog ever had a Starbucks Puppuccino? Did they love it?

  1. Amazing they’re free when Starbucks doesn’t ask if I want whip and when I ask for whip they act like I asked for gold leaf to be applied to my drink even though I pay as well as tip generously.
