A Denver-based company has sold more than 4,000 bottles of “wine” for cats. Now it’s time to see if dog people are that crazy too.

Apollo Peak just announced ZinFanTAIL and CharDOGNay, two wines for dogs, joining its previous feline lineup of The Moscato and The Pinot Meow.

Like the cat wines, these dog wines contain neither alcohol nor grapes. And while the cat wines contain catnip, ZinFanTAIL and CharDOGNay use peppermint or chamomile to produce a calming effect for your new drinking buddy, according to Huffington Post.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals warns chamomile could be toxic for pets. 

While the occasional glass of dog wine should be completely safe, Apollo Peak founder Brandon Zavala still encourages owners to check with their veterinarians before blowing off steam with your pup.
