Now Serving Frozen Pup Treats!
Summer is here!! As it gets warmer, there’s more outdoor fun to be had; park play, beach outings and backyard BBQs. It’s all so much better with our furry friends, but as it gets hotter, it’s easier for our furries to get overheated and dehydrated. That’s when our pups deserve a frozen treat!!
Frozen doggy treats are a great way to keep your dog hydrated, plus they are fun to make!! All the ingredients you need are probably already in your fridge and freezer. The possibilities are endless!
Why make your own homemade dog treats? It’s easier than you think and more affordable than store bought ones. Also, you can be sure that all the ingredients are safe and free from all the scary fillers in commercially made treats. Dogs thrive on whole foods just like humans do.
Let’s get started with some easy recipes…
