It’s no secret that Charlotte is full of pups, dog lovers AND dozens of dog-friendly bars, breweries and parks. But what’s even better are the goofy treats available to treat your pup at these hang-out spots and other shops around the city.

Here are the top 6 craziest treats I’ve found for dogs in town:

Foot-long bone

If you’re allowed to eat beef jerky, why not treat your furry friend with a piece of originally crafted beef jerky? These jerky treats are prepared and marinated overnight to be bagged and ready to serve the following day. Fun fact: This is the most popular item sold at PetWants and cats love it too.

Where to find it: PetWants: The Urban Feed Store, 2324 B Distribution St.

Price: $7/bag

Dog Beer 

Want your pup to drink with you during happy hour? Try Bowser Beer. The non-alcoholic “booze” is made to be healthy for any pup (it’s made with human-grade meat, no added salt or fat, and malt barley) and could be served chilled or poured over a bowl of dry kibble. The puppy brew comes in beef and pork flavors.

Where to find it: Lincoln’s Haberdashery, 1300 South Blvd.

It’s easy to keep the party going at Canine Cafe with their abundance of options — so I also can’t overlook the yogurt “daiquiris,” great for summer. You can get them in liquid form, or frozen solid (recommended for bigger dogs). The treats are made with pumpkin, peanut butter or honey.
