Here in Ohio, it feels like spring has just begun but with Memorial Day a few days behind us, the dog days of summer will soon be upon us.
The heat of summer always makes me a little nervous with Sherman and Leroy, especially as they grow older, so anything that I can do to keep them cool and comfortable during this time of the year, I will do.
One of the many things that I do is offer them plenty of fresh, cool water and fun, cool treats.
Leroy loves anything that’s frozen and anytime the freezer opens up, he’s right there waiting for an ice cube or DIY frozen dog treat that I have stashed.
I always try to keep my frozen treats as simple and as healthy as possible that I can within his dietary needs.
So in case you’re looking for some cool treats to give your dog this summer, I’ve rounded up a handful of the best and easiest DIY frozen dog treats from some of my favorite pet bloggers that are sure to have your dog drooling this summer!
But before we get to those delicious frosty dog treats, here are a few tips to get you started.
Tips on making DIY frozen dog treats
If you’re using an ingredient in your homemade frozen dog treats that your dog has never had before, make sure to introduce the treats slowly to avoid giving your dog an upset stomach
Get creative as you want with containers for frozen dog treats. You can use something as simple as a small paper cup or purchase cute silicone molds in fun dog shapes.
Since frozen dog treats can get messy, try to give them outside to avoid making a mess or creating stains in your house.
If you decide to give them inside, make sure to have some stain remover on hand to quickly clean up any mess that is left behind from the treats. Our favorite stain remover is Spot Shot® Pet Instant Carpet Stain & Odor Eliminator.
Spot Shot is non-toxic and safe to use around pets when used as directed.
Now onto those treats!
Most of these cool treats are low in calories and super easy to whip up and store in the freezer for a few weeks when stored properly!
And don’t forget to keep some Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain & Odor Eliminator on hand just in case that frozen dog drool leaks on your carpet!
