You’ve heard the saying, Ball is Life? It’s hard to believe that next month Alder the Whoodle is going to be 4 years old! So naturally, a board with 3 Chuckit! balls in the center is appropriate for the ball-obbsessed sweet boy. And for my central-Oregon followers, here’s a great post on Hiking with Dogs in Central Oregon!

What are Charcuterie Boards for Dogs?

When I looked up Charcuterie Boards for Dogs, I was super excited to see that others have already thought of it, and the popular term is “Bark-Cuterie.” How cute is that? Or, what about Chow-Cuterie? That is cute, too.

Basically, it’s an epic board filled with dog treats! Here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. Invite a few of your friends over who have dogs.
  2. Size the board to the number of treats you will need for the dogs.
  3. Don’t forget to add human food that is safe for dogs.
  4. Of course, as always, don’t waste the treats. Box up what wasn’t munched on and send it home with your guests, or keep for your own dog snack stash.

Charcuterie Boards for Dogs

Here’s a fun dogcuterie board that would be fun to make if you have friends coming over with their pets. I thought I’d let you know, we feed Alder the Whoodle dry dog food (excellent quality), and we have also tried The Farmer’s Dog food, which he loved.

We limit snacks and treats for him, but even if we didn’t, he runs and runs and is very skinny! It’s the poodle in him, we think. Although, we think Alder is more Wheaten than poodle.

Do you know anyone who has a Whoodle dog?

First of all, can dogs eat anything?

Here’s a list of human foods that dogs can eat (or that Alder enjoys):

  • Carrots – both raw and cooked
  • Peanut Butter
  • Eggs
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Blueberries

We visited Trader Joe’s and tried some new snacks for this board too. I’ve never purchased their dog treats before, and Alder definitely has his new favorites now.
