Pet boredom? Here’s a fun thing to do for your fur baby: make barkuterie boards!

How is your pet doing as you both stay home and limit outdoor activities?

You might be running out of things to do and it could be the same for your dog, too, especially if he used to enjoy going for a walk and playing outside. Pet boredom may cause them to find ways to keep themselves entertained—and sometimes, it can be dangerous. Hence, it’s important to consistently bring excitement to their lives. This not only includes toys and games, but munchies as well. 

Here’s one way you can bust doggy boredom: make barkuterie boards! As seen in The New York Times, these grazing boards for dogs have been the talk of the town for their cuteness and creativity. Featuring a myriad of cheese, meat, fruit, and dessert options, it’s perfect for fur babies who enjoy channeling their inner foodie with you.

Just like the charcuterie boards that hoomans love, barkuterie boards also require variety. Take this one as an example, where fish, crackers, fruits, and veggies combine the goodness of sweet and salty flavors.

How do themed boards sound to you? A fur parent called this the “Puppy Bowl.” Check out how carefully the “field” of green beans was made and amped up with fishes and fruits on the sidelines!

The sky’s the limit when it comes to barkuterie. You can even play with shapes, as shown by this board made with biscuits, fruits, sweet potatoes, bananas, strawberry, and cucumber.

Talk about a treat overload with a cute heart in the middle! Bark smash is definitely a thing.
