Have you ever wondered how to make your own dog charcuterie board? You've come to the right place! My name is Amanda and I am the owner of Wag Boards, curating the highest quality doggy charcuterie boards for your pups since 2020! I've been featured in the New York Times and the leading pet industry podcast, Wear Wag Repeat, so I know a thing or two about charcuterie for dogs.
So, grab an empty platter, find your pup's favorite treats, and get ready to make a dog charcuterie board!
These are three tips to consider when building a dog charcuterie board:
Color: let's face it, most dog treats are primarily brown or yellow in color. I like to use fruits and veggies to add in a variety of colors. Examples of fruits and veggies that I use are bananas, green beans, carrots, strawberries, and cucumbers. You can use fresh produce or even dehydrated or freeze-dried produce, the choice is yours!
Texture: I like to balance high-quality novel proteins with dog cookies to balance the textures on the dog charcuterie board. Dog jerky tends to have more varied textures, like tuna jerky, venison, or shrimp. Dogs might eat with their nose instead of their eyes, but as a dog parent, it's fun to make your board look aesthetically pleasing!
Shapes: there are a lot of different types of dog treats, so let's mix up the shapes on the dog charcuterie board. If you have round treats and square treats, consider alternating the shapes for variety. If you have dog treats that are in the shape of a bone, you could stack them on your board or scatter them around the board like sprinkles.
There are no right or wrong ways to make a dog charcuterie board, but the tips above are the items that I consider when I make my Wag Boards. If you prefer ordering a dog charcuterie board from Wag Boards, check out the shop and get your pup some fancy snacks today!
