Humans aren’t the only foodies in town. From Boston to Chicago to L.A., the dogs have upped their game when it comes to cuisine, and the food truck industry is hereby put on notice.
Now is the time when owners of “doggie treat trucks” are staking their claim as “first” in their local markets. Many doggie food truck websites have made that claim. Of course, there’s always a bit of risk being first to market, but given how the dogs (and their owners) are responding, it seems like a pretty safe bet.
Check out these examples of dog treat trucks that are thriving (in no particular order). And in keeping with food truck tradition, we recommend following your local doggie treat truck on Twitter to find out where and when it’s time for your dog to nosh.
