My pups love spending time outside, but during the dog days of summer, I have to be careful that they don't get overheated. After they've been playing in the backyard, I like to give them a tasty frozen treat to quickly cool them off. They're so easy to make, and you can mix and match healthy ingredients based on your dog's tastes.

For best results, make these treats in a freezer-safe silicone mold — they'll pop out easily once frozen. (You can even find cute shapes like paw prints and fire hydrants online or at craft stores.) Keep reading for three easy recipes.

Give your pup an extra dose of protein with these PB&J-inspired treats. Be sure to use natural peanut butter that doesn’t contain xylitol (a sugar substitute that’s toxic to dogs). 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup frozen berries (we used strawberries and blueberries)
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
