Amazingly, there are some dogs out there who are not beer lovers. We still pet them and tell them they are good dogs, but may think twice about inviting them over for poker. If your dog falls into this category, we suggest trying it over kibble, crushed ice, or diluted with a little water if they turn their nose up at the bowl. Adding pumpkin gives it a great flavor too. If that doesn’t work, give it to his best friend.
