A really cute cookbook for dog lovers. Full of barkcuterie boards, along with recipes that could be used outside of building these boards, this book was really cute. It had great pictures of the boards, recipes, and some cute dog pictures to boot!

Note: there are two editions of this on Goodreads so I am reviewing under both titles - I have been approved to be a Goodreads Librarian but have yet to have my powers granted so until I can combine them, there are two separate reviews.

I don't have a dog but I have two wonderful dog nephews that will bark in pleasure at the sight of these boards. (There is even a cat board for my fur babies...yes we have birthday parties for all the pets in our family so this board will be used!)

Great ideas, and solid instructions so your friend and furr-iends will be astounded at your snack boards as these are some gorgeous boards of foods...why not make one for humans at the same time as many of the fruits and contents are people-friendly as well.

I want to thank Netgalley and the author for gifting me the ebook. What a cute book. Beautiful photos and the recipes are very easy to follow along with the layout of your puppy board. I think these would be a cute idea if you are having a gathering and people bring their dogs etc. Great for all seasons.

This is a great book with fairly simple recipes that are easy to make. It’s a beautiful book and the recipes are perfect. I’m definitely making some of them for my dogs.

Being familiar with the fun, cute videos of Hammy and Olivia, I was expecting, well, cute and fun. It's all that and more. Not only do we get colorful photos of Hammy and Olivia to illustrate whatever the creation is celebrating, but the book is well-set and an easy guide to follow. It's very well done, especially for two adorable corgis. <insert chuckle>

You say you don't have a board or cookie shape cutters shaped like a paw print or bone? No problem. As is noted, you can certainly use what's at hand but a list of online resources is available at the end. But, with a bit of artful arrangement, you can easily use even a plate to display your results. It's just cuter and, well, more doggie with the shapes.

As for the recipes, they are simple and easy to follow. Hammy and Olivia introduce each, though their humans do manage to get a few words in here and there, including an introduction. Ingredients and tools are listed and the recipes themselves tend to be short, easy steps. No massive reading required. You also have full color photos of not just the dogs ready to celebrate but the boards themselves to use as a visual guideline. And, yes, for those owned by cats, there are some adorable cat themed boards, too.

The authors also provide a boxed list of safe, safe but should be used only sparingly, and things you should never feed your pets. It's all handy and on one page, easy to copy and keep handy for everyday occasions, not just celebratory ones. I liked that the authors added a caution that just because a food is listed here as safe, you need to be aware of pet allergies or bad reactions to foods and substitute as needed.

Thanks #NetGalley and #QuartoPublishingGroup- #RockPoint for making this adorable and creative barkcuterie guide available. My Daisy dog's birthday is coming up soon, not to mention her Gotcha Day , so....hmm. She’s a corgi mix and gives this one 4 paws up and a tail wag.

The cat mom needs a Meowcuterie too!

Who needs this book? Obviously WE US ALL!

Because just look at the corgis ♥️

Let’s calm down a bit and talk about the book.

I love the contents so much cos it’s for our dogs we are talking about. The number of recipes for them (I don’t think I have this many recipes ready for us minions to save our lives) but lucky us this book has enough healthy recipes for our paw pets.

The presentation is really awesome. The ingredients used are fairly available throughout the seasons and the recipes fairly easy to prepare. Find your pick for each season and we have a happy dog who’s enjoying all the good food!

Thank you, Quarto Publishing Group- Rock Point, for the advance reading copy.

Thank you NetGalley for the advanced copy of this book. Hammy and Olivia's parents wrote this really cute book showing us all how to make splentacular barkcuterie boards for our dogs. There are boards for many holidays and seasons each with recipes and beautiful pictures. Some food items on the boards will need to be prepared while others are simple fruits and veggies or store bought treats. We always prepare charcuterie boards for New Years Eve so this books has given me some wonderful ideas for making a boards for my pugs this year. They will be extremely excited. I would recommend this book for anyone who loved to cook for their pups!
