Bringing Barkuterie Boards to our shop seems like the perfect addition to our dog biscuit cutters. But the big question is how do you build a barkuterie board for a dog? What other food items can your add to a bark board that your pup will enjoy just as much as their homemade treats made with Loki Doki Dog's cookie cutters, while adding variety at the same time?
A board can stimulate a dog's senses with the different tastes, textures and smells, just as a charcuterie board does for humans. Creating a board for a dog really isn't hard, you just have to know where to start.
To help answer and questions of how to DIY your own Barkuterie Board, we brought in a guest blogger & someone who has a knack of building beautiful boards for both humans and dogs.

Tips to prepare foods for your pup's board
Cook raw veggies by steaming, for a softer bite.
Freeze fruits to slow down your pup while they enjoy their board.
Stamp fruits, veggies, cheese and other soft food items, into fun shapes with your Loki Doki Dog dog biscuit cookie cutters.
Always double check all foods are safe for your dog to consume, before serving. Check food labels when serving a packaged food item.
Acidic, rich and gassy foods, limit to a small tasting to avoid tummy upset.
