5 Seasonal Drinks for your Dog

Who doesn’t love a hot drink when the temperature starts to drop? Whether you count the days until pumpkin spice lattes return or you love a classic hot chocolate, you can now share your favourite with your dog! We have pulled together 5 pawsome recipes for dog-friendly hot drinks.

Note: all of these recipes are dog safe and have been altered for dogs. There is no chocolate or raw eggs in the below recipes that would usually call for these. You should not serve the human versions to your dog as some ingredients are toxic to dogs.
