Here are three trucks worth checking out if you're within barking distance:

Bow Wow Bones (Austin)
Five years ago, Lara Enzor opened this treats-on-the-go truck for pets. Her signature delight: ice cream flavors like Howlin' BBQ (with brisket bits) and Happy Hippy (with peanut butter, banana and hemp powder). When it's not zipping around the capital, Bow Wow Bones hosts "yappy hour" events at apartment complexes and, on one special occasion, a retirement home celebrating a therapy dog that had visited residents for 12 years.

The Seattle Barkery (Seattle)
In 2014, husband-and-wife team Dawn and Ben Ford began transforming a 1968 Chevy step van into a pooch-centric bakery and coffee station for pet owners (you can find it outside Starbucks headquarters or at local dog parks). Dawn makes most of the goodies for her canine clientele, including mini cheesy doughnuts, peanut butter banana bones and ice cream sundaes (scooped into ginger and cinnamon dough bowls) topped with bacon sprinkles or cheddar shreds. The Barkery's main taste tester: Sherman, the couple's rescue Pekingese mix.

Fetch (Birmingham, Alabama)
Allison Whitfield-Smith has dished out sweet and savory snacks to four-legged customers since 2015. She offers carrot cake smoothies, honey-and-ham biscuits, paw-shaped peanut butter sandwiches and custom cookies for Alabama and Auburn college football fans. Hut, hut, bite!
