Homemade Summer Dog Treats
Keep your fur-babies cool with these tasty summer treats.
Whip up some simply delicious freezer-section treats for your pup with wholesome ingredients they’re sure to love.
Fido’s Ice Pops
Mix dry dog food and pup-friendly vegetables (avoid onions and garlic, as well as avocado, we know it’s a fruit but just in case you didn’t) with chicken stock and freeze the mixture in an ice cube tray. Pop one out when they need a treat and help them cool down.
Add plain frozen chicken stock cubes to their food dish during mealtime.
Make big blocks of flavored ice in an old milk jug with the top cut off or small freezable bucket for an outdoor treat they’ll pick at all afternoon.
Pet-Friendly Ice Cream
Mix together four tablespoons of plain low-fat Greek yogurt, two ripe bananas, and peanut butter. Freeze the mixture in a container with a lid and scoop it out like ice cream.
Hollow Toy Filling Suggestions
Fill and freeze a hollow toy overnight to make a cool treat that lasts all day.
Fill it with:
• Non-fat plain yogurt
• Peanut butter
• Chicken broth with beef jerky
• Mashed bananas
• Canned pumpkin
• Canned dog food
• Low-fat cream cheese
