Your pup is your everything. Why not feed them the best of the best? From homemade baked goods to frozen bites, there’s a lot of different ways to shower your dog with love in the form of food. Perk your pup up this summer with these four unique treats that your pup will paws-itively love.
Frozen Banana Bites
These frozen banana bites will not only make your dog jump for joy, but it will also cool them off during these warm summer months. Slice up one banana into 24 pieces. Blend 1½ cups of cubed watermelon, and separately blend 1 cup of pineapple. Using a silicone mold or ice cube tray, place a banana slice in each mold, followed by half watermelon puree and half pineapple puree. Freeze them up and, voila! Frozen treats your pup will love.
Us humans enjoy a good freeze-dried treat every now and then, so why not our dogs? There’s plenty of options on the market for freeze-dried treats, though Vital Essentials tops our list. Simply choose your dog’s favorite protein of choice, and you’ll feel good about knowing your dog is getting the most from their treat, with no added preservatives and loaded with a boost of vitamins, protein, and essential nutrients.
No Bake Peanut Butter Dog Treats
Four ingredients and 15 minutes. That’s all it takes! In a mixer, beat 1 cup of pumpkin puree, ¼ cup peanut butter, and ¼ cup of milk. Once mixed, slowly add in 2½ cups of old-fashioned oats until incorporated. Using an ice cream scoop, create small balls of the mixture, then cover and place in the fridge for at least one hour before serving. Less mess, little time, and delicious bites for your dog – it’s a win.
Frozen Yogurt Pupsicles
These homemade frozen dog treats are as fun to make as they are to watch your pup enjoy. Packed with healthy fruits and tons of protein, you can also feel good about what you’re serving your pet. And let’s not forget the cute paw print silicone mold you’ll need to impress your dog.
