Beat the Heat: DIY Frozen Treats for Your Hot Dog

Abbie Drinkwater

Summer is here and while we might relish the sunshine and longer days, our furry friends can find the heat a tad overwhelming. Keeping our dogs cool and hydrated is crucial during these warmer months, and what better way to do that than with some delicious, DIY frozen treats? Let’s dive into some easy-to-make recipes that your pup will love, featuring the ever-healthy Soopa Pets treats!

Why Frozen Treats?

Before we get our paws dirty, let’s talk about why frozen treats are so beneficial for our dogs:

  1. Hydration: Just like us, dogs need to stay hydrated, especially when it’s hot out. Frozen treats provide a tasty way to get extra fluids into their system.
  2. Cooling Down: These treats help lower your dog’s body temperature, making them feel more comfortable during those scorching summer days.
  3. Mental Stimulation: Licking and chewing on frozen treats can keep your dog mentally engaged and entertained.

Ingredients That Are Safe and Healthy

When whipping up frozen delights for your dog, it’s essential to use ingredients that are both safe and nutritious. Here are some dog-friendly essentials:

  • Plain Greek Yogurt: High in protein and low in fat, it’s a perfect base for many frozen treats.
  • Peanut Butter (unsalted, xylitol-free): Dogs love peanut butter, and it’s a great source of healthy fats.
  • Fruits and Veggies: Blueberries, bananas, sweet potatoes, and carrots are excellent additions that provide vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Soopa Pets Treats: These treats are not only delicious but also packed with nutrients that are great for your dog’s health.
