Tailgating Treats in True Volunteer Spirit: University of Tennessee Dog-Friendly Barkuterie Board

Are you ready to turn your dog into the ultimate Tennessee Volunteer fan? Get ready to score big with a tailgating or watch party experience that even the legendary mascot Smokey would approve of! We're talking about creating a "barkuterie" board featuring white and orange foods, perfectly aligned in a checkered board design to celebrate the University of Tennessee spirit. Here's how to make it happen, complete with dog-friendly foods that are as delicious as they are nutritious.

White Dog Safe Foods

Cauliflower: This cruciferous veggie isn't just for humans. Cauliflower offers a dose of dietary fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin C for your furry friend, contributing to their overall well-being.

Yogurt: High in calcium and protein, plain yogurt acts as a probiotic that promotes a healthy digestive system for your pup. Just make sure it's free of added sweeteners.

Mozzarella: Opt for mozzarella, a low-fat, low-calorie, and low-sodium cheese option. It's protein-rich and supports crucial body functions in dogs.

Cottage Cheese: Fermented cottage cheese contains minimal lactose, making it a gentle option for dogs. It's packed with calcium and protein, making it perfect for a healthy treat.

Orange Dog Safe Foods:

Carrots: Packed with Vitamin A, carrots support your dog's immune system, skin, coat, and eye health. They're a crunchy, tasty way to add vitamins to your pup's diet.

Sweet Potatoes: These orange gems are rich in vitamins A, C, B6, and more. They promote healthy skin, coat, eyes, and muscles in dogs while also being a scrumptious treat.

Cantaloupe: A low-calorie, high-fiber fruit, cantaloupe aids digestion and hydrates your pup with its 90% water content. It's a refreshing option for warm tailgating days.

Pumpkin: A versatile food, pumpkin supports digestion, helps with diarrhea and constipation, and offers essential micronutrients. It's a nutritional powerhouse for your pup.

Now, the fun part – arranging these vibrant white and orange treats in a checkered board pattern on a pup-safe board. Imagine the smiles on your fellow fans' faces as they see your dog's tail wag with excitement over this creative and health-conscious display.

So, as the Volunteers hit the field, let your pup hit the "barkuterie" board and indulge in these delicious and nutritious treats. With a lineup like this, your furry friend will be a true Vols supporter, ready to cheer on the team in style. Go Vols, and Go Dogs! 🏈🐶🧡

Disclaimer: Always consult your veterinarian before introducing new foods to your dog's diet, especially if they have allergies or specific dietary needs.
