This will make your tail wag.

Gelatissimo has released a new gelato flavour that can be enjoyed by humans and their furry friends. The dog-friendly flavour, called Pawesome Peanut Butter, is also vegan and made with peanuts and soy.

Gelatissimo chief executive Filipe Barbosa said they did “a lot of research” to ensure the flavour was “100 per cent dog and human approved”, although it is not suitable for canines with a history of pancreatitis.

“It’s really important to us that we’re always catering to the whole family,” he said.

But there are more than a few places serving up treats for four-legged friends.

Royal Copenhagen in Brighton offers pooches a cup of frozen natural yoghurt mixed with peanut butter, honey and banana, and served with a dog bone biscuit on top.

At Norwood cafe Argo on the Parade, dogs can enjoy a “puppaccino”: lactose-free milk with carob, served with peanut butter biscuits.
