We’re heading into the hottest time of the year here in Ohio and there’s no better way to beat the heat than with a frosty, summertime treat! Here are three tasty recipes for quick and easy frozen dog treats that’ll keep your pup cool all summer long.
1. Watermelon Blueberry Cubes (for Fruit Lovers)
2. Peanut Butter & Banana Pupsicles (for Peanut Butter Lovers)
3. Chicken & Sweet Potato Pupsicles (for Meat Lovers)
These are three layer pupsicles with sweet potato on the top and bottom and yummy chicken chunks and broth in the middle.
The Results!All three recipes were a hit with Haley, but the clear winner was the peanut butter and banana treat. She loved the flavor and the fact that her favorite edible bone was buried inside all that yumminess put it over the top!
Bonus! A Frozen Treat for Raw Meat EatersIf you feed your dog a raw diet, Rodney Habib from Dogs Naturally Magazine has you covered with this healthy, frozen treat.
Frosty treats are the perfect way to keep your dog refreshed when the summertime temperatures soar. Plus, they keep your pup occupied for a while so you can put your feet up, relax, and soak up some sunshine yourself. The fun thing about making your own treats is, you can get creative and experiment with different ingredients. Next on my list is pumpkin with apple slices. Just be sure not to include any foods that can be harmful to your dog, especially anything containing xylitol which is showing up in more and more foods these days. Here’s a fun quiz from DogVacay to test your knowledge of dog-safe foods. Also, it’s a good idea to let the treats defrost a little before serving so they’re easier to eat.
If your panting pup is ready for a cool down, whip up some of your own frozen dog treats and tell us your dog’s favorite taste combinations.
