Summer days can get pretty hot around here. At least that’s what I think and I don’t have a permanent fur coat on. I can’t even begin to imagine what it feels like for our canine companion.
Here’s a fun treat that dogs are sure to love when temperatures rise.
How to make a ‘pup’sicle
This is a simple treat to make. It requires minimal ingredients and takes no time at all to put together.
Low or no sodium beef or chicken broth (sodium tends to make one thirstier so the less, the better).
- Add one cup of broth to 5 – 7 cups of water in a plastic bowl.
- Mix and place in freezer until frozen.
I make two at a time. This way I can take on out of the freezer for our dog to enjoy, and when it melts too much, I put it back in the freezer again and take out the frozen one. Cold treats all summer day long.
If your dog isn’t sure about it at first, touch the ice and let your dog lick your fingers. They’ll get the idea.
Once the ice begins to break apart, take the ice out and let your dog chew on it. Some dogs love the cold crunchy taste, and it hydrates them too.
