You may have spotted the barkuterie board trend on TikTok over the last few months - and you might have even given it a go yourself - but now, you can actually buy a beautifully designed board specifically for dogs!
The ULTRA Barkturie Board (with ‘barkuterie’ being a play on words with ‘charcuterie’) takes inspiration from NUTRO ULTRA dry dog food, which has a designated space in the centre of the board.
With the help of this new board, owners can segment lots of different types of foods for the dogs to enjoy, ensuring that they receive all of the necessary nutrients, vitamins and protein from their food.
From fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, and bite-sized chunks of banana, to veggies including carrots and zucchini, as well as a spoonful of plain yogurt, there’s lots of things you could put on there to treat your pooch.
To make the treats last even longer or if it’s being enjoyed on a hot day, consider freezing some of the foods to provide your pet with a cooling, new texture.
Actress Haylie Duff - along with her two four-legged friends, Chicken and Birdie - has partnered with the brand to offer a unique, one-of-a-kind experience to win a virtual Barkuterie “eat-and-greet” along with their very own ULTRA Barkuterie Board.
