Treats for a hot summer day

Updated: Jul 20, 2023

Ever pondered about your pup panting, maybe from the hot summer day? We have some great suggestions for keeping your dog cool and nourished. It’ll always be a great day for the zoomies with these chilly and refreshing treats!


Keep in mind, these are mainly sweets so don’t overfeed your buddy, iced water or at the very least plenty of water will always help.



Coconut drops

Our first treat is made of frozen coconut goodness with a hint of blueberry and honey- it also helps maintain a shiny coat on your dog. Not to mention, coconut even has immunity benefits for pups!


Here’s the ingredients:

· 1 Cup of organic coconut oil

· A handful of blueberries

· A teaspoon of honey


Method:

1. Add your coconut oil to a bowl and place over a pan of boiled water.

2. Wait until the coconut softens and shape into bite-sized balls.

3. Add the honey and a few blueberries as you’re shaping the coconut balls.

4. Place the balls on a tray and put them in the freezer.

5. Serve when hardened.

Note: can be stored in the fridge after freezing because coconut oil maintains its shape well.



Frozen Tater Kong

A great treat for a busy dog is peanut butter in their Kong, right? What about frozen, with potatoes and cheese instead! Or even bananas & yogurt?! That sounds quite tasty for humans as well, minus the Kong part, lol.


Here’s the ingredients:

· 1 cup of boiled potato

· 1 half cup of plain cottage cheese

· 1 half cup of grated low-fat cheese

Or

· 1 banana

· 1 cup of plain or Greek yogurt

· 1 teaspoon of honey


Method:

1. Blend or mash all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

2. Spoon your mixture into your Kong toys.

3. Put it in the freezer until solid and serve.


Chicken broth-sickles

Last but not least is a straightforward and healthy option to chill your doggies out. All you need is chicken broth and an ice cube tray to make this delicious snack. Something important to note certain ingredients in processed chicken broths can be toxic to dogs, mainly onion and garlic. Also, high sodium has been known to cause dietary issues in some dogs, while it causes dying in the others, lol.


Method:

1. Pour chicken broth in an ice cube tray.

2. Put it in the freezer until solid and serve.
