We all know summer is all about the heat, and as the temperature rises outside, your dog can feel overheated. There are a lot of pet hazards that come with the summer, all of which you’d never want your dog to experience, most especially heat stroke. This is why it is essential you keep your dog cool during the hot weather. What better way to do that than to provide your dog with summer dog treats?

Giving your pet some deliciously frozen or chilled summer dog treats can help cool them down in the hot weather. Frozen or chilled dog treats are a great surprise for your pet. These treats will not just make your dog cool, they can also relieve your dog of boredom when she is cooped up inside. We have put some delicacies together for you to make for your dog this summer. Our suggested delicacies are healthy and will ensure that your dog remains cool.

Before we take a look at these summer dog treats, please note before giving your dog a new type of food, it is essential you consult your vet first. This is to know if the food you are preparing for your pet is good for its hygiene. With that said, let’s take a look at the nutritious treats we have put together for your dog:

FROZEN JAM AND PEANUT BUTTER TOAST

Get some water and some freshly strained strawberries (organic will be perfect), mix them together, then pour the mixture into an ice cube tray. Add some peanut butter and place everything in the freezer. Leave for a few hours so it can solidify, and once that is done, serve to your dog and let it enjoy some really delicious, fruity goodness.

DOGGIE S’MORES

This is another delicious summer dog treat your dog is really going to love. If you really want to treat your dog to a nice, safe, and delicious BBQ treat, all you have to do is get some carob (you can either buy this or make one by mixing yogurt with carob powder) and some Greek yogurt between two of your dog’s biscuit. Once you are through with the lining up, put the biscuits together and freeze. The outcome will be something your dog will love. Do not use chocolate for this recipe as chocolate is poisonous to dogs.

CHICKEN STOCK AND PARSLEY FREEZIES

This is a perfect low-calorie summer dog treat, especially if your dog is on the chubby side and you’d like to avoid fatty and sugary ingredients. All you have to do with this recipe is to simply make some ice cubes with organic chicken stock, then add some parsley to it so your dog can enjoy some fresh breath. Before serving your dog this recipe, you need to ensure that you have first checked for sodium levels in the chicken stock because they can contain some really high levels of salt.

Don’t forget to use the Poof Pet Activity Tracker for your dog. With the help of this lightweight and waterproof device, you’ll be able to keep track of your dog’s activities, calorie intake, and sleeping patterns. This will help you with making sure your dog remains healthy throughout summer and beyond.
