The Dog Days of Summer sure have been upon us lately with temperatures in the 90s and even 100s, which calls for fun cooling measures here in our pack!
Doggie Popsicles with KONG toys
I like using the classic, fillable KONG toys because they provide entertainment for quite some time AND because they’re so easy to clean…they can be washed on the top rack of the dishwasher, making clean up a breeze!
Only 2 Ingredients: Peanut Butter & Duck Sticks
I only used 2 ingredients for my Doggie Popsicles: Jif Peanut Butter & Loving Pets Natural Value Duck Sticks.
The Duck Sticks are made in the USA and are by-product free, as well as soy, grain, gluten, & wheat free.
They only contain the following: Duck, Turkey, Vegetable Glycerin, Mixed Tocopherols & Rosemary Extract (both are natural preservatives), and Natural Smoke Flavoring.
Natural Value suggests giving 1 treat per 15 pounds of your dog’s total body weight, but obviously this is only a guideline and will vary from dog to dog.
All I did was fill the KONG toys with peanut butter, added a duck stick to the creamy delicacy, and then let it solidify in the freezer for several hours.
Missy & Buzz couldn’t wait to dig into their cooling treats ~ they absolutely ♥ the Peanut Butter/Duck Stick Doggie Popsicles!
