Dog food trucks – we want one in Australia!

It’s 2014 and food trucks are all the rage. Everyone is keen for some trendy street food, whether it’s yum cha, a taco (or three), veggie burgers or sliders! But what about the dogs? Isn’t this one of the best things about street food: that your dog can come along for the experience too. Well, in the United States a food truck for dogs has been making its way around the country.

Milo’s Kitchen — the San Francisco dog-treat maker — is this weekend wrapping up a cross-country tour of its “Treat Truck.” Since the truck began its trip from California in June, Milo’s Kitchen estimates that more than 1,000 dogs have visited the truck at each stop on the tour, which has in total been 16 cities.

The mobile food truck features homemade dog treat samples such as chicken meatballs and burger bites, all served on a silver platter. Also featured are the doggie lounge and a canine selfie station for pet owners to take home a memento of their visit.

While this food truck’s goodies were free (as the idea has been largely used as a marketing vehicle for the brand) I did find several other dog food trucks roaming the streets in the USA. They included:

We love the idea that when a gathering of food trucks (a food truck rally?) stops at a nearby venue, there could be one that caters to our furry best friends. C’mon Australia let’s get a dog food truck on the streets 🙂
