We’re heading into summer and to help our dogs keep their cool, here are 20 easy frozen dog treats to beat the summer heat.
It’s the last day of National Pet Month, so it’s only fitting that we end with more dog treats! But not ordinary dog treats, frozen dog treats!
All 20 of these frozen pet treats for summer are dog-approved and easy to make. So, don’t let making homemade frozen dog treats intimidate you. Making your own cold dog treats is a great way to show your love to your dog and can be a fun summer cooking activity to do with kids too.
Items to Make Frozen Treats for Dogs
Besides mixing bowls, measuring spoons, and measuring cups, here are a few items that may be needed to make these frozen dog treat recipes.
- Silicone cupcake liners – When I make my dog Frozen Yogurt and Peanut Butter Cups, I use regular-sized silicone cupcake liners. I prefer silicone because frozen treats easily pop out.
- Ice cube trays – Ice cube trays are a great alternative to using dog-themed molds. Ice cube trays can do double duty of making ice and as a frozen dog treat mold.
- Blender – Some recipes that use real fruit may require a blender to get a smoothly blended dog treat mix.
- Puppy paw and bone silicone molds – This is optional, but if you want to make cute dog-themed frozen treats, get some dog paw and bone-shaped silicone molds.
- Mini dog treats – Optional, but you can add mini dog treats as decorative toppers to any of these dog frozen treats.
- Dog stick treats – Optional to use to make pupsicle treats. Place these into frozen dog treats for an extra surprise for your dog.
- Baking sheet – Some homemade dog treat recipes need to be chilled flat on a baking sheet.
- Parchment paper – If the frozen dog treat recipe requires it to be spread onto a baking sheet, placing parchment onto the baking sheet helps make removing the frozen treats easier. It also makes cleaning up easier too.
