3 of the Best Cool Treats for Dogs
With temperatures forecast to continue to soar in most states around Australia throughout summer, we have picked out three of the best frozen treats (on the easy scale) that we know your best friend will enjoy. It will help cool them down too off course.
Peanut Butter Frozen Dog Treats
These frozen dog treats are a great idea for our hot Aussie Christmas’s and must be the easiest pet treats you will ever make. Using just two ingredients, this recipe makes about two dozen treats and is a cheeky variation of 17 Apart’s Valentines pet treats. Here is what you will need:
1 x kg tub of all natural Greek yogurt
1 1/4 cups, peanut butter
Christmas shaped mold similar to the one we found on Armada Silicone.
Pre-heat the peanut butter to soften it first. This will make it easier to work with. Now spoon a small amount of peanut butter into the base of each mold in the tray.
For the next step, blend your Greek Yoghurt with a small amount of peanut butter and dollop spoonful’s of the yoghurt mixture on top of your peanut butter layer. If you prefer to keep the treat a bit on the lower fat side, just use plain yoghurt as your top layer instead of the peanut blend.
Press down firmly on the mixture, so that the peanut butter and yoghurt seal well, ensuring that you get enough mixture to the level of the mold. Pop into the freezer for at least four hours to set. Once frozen, you can pop out the individual treats for your pup to enjoy at their leisure, Yum!

1 Chicken Breast, cooked and chopped
2 cups chopped Berries (I used blueberries, raspberries and strawberries)
1 cup Water
- Mix all ingredients and puree in blender until smooth.
- Pour into molds and place in freezer.
- Freeze for 8 hours to allow them to fully set.
- Run warm water around the mold to remove the pup-sicles.
Puppy Ice Pops (courtesy of dogs about)
A fast and easy frozen "pop" dogs will love, this treat is as simple as one ingredient!
You will need:
Chicken or beef broth (fat-free, low-sodium, no onion ingredients)
Freeze overnight in ice cube trays or mini-muffin pans. You can feed a few alone as treats for your dog. Or, try placing on top of kibble or in the water bowl to enhance flavour. Again, experiment with mix-ins like finely diced carrots, apples, or lean meat.
So there you have it, three of the best and easiest cool dog treats that your pooch will enjoy this summer.
Bon Appetit Fido...you are way too cool for school! :)
