What Can You Freeze for Your Dog?
•Vegetables & Fruit - Yep, plain ol' veggies like green beans, squash and sweet potato are fun to freeze and give as a cold treat. Just as fun are icy cool bananas, strawberries ...
and apples.
•Chicken & Beef Broth - This should be a staple in your doggie pantry. It's a great base for great homemade dog treats.
•Fruit Juices - You can use fruit juices for cold treats on a hot day. It's best to use juices that are lower in sugar. For example, look for juices that list "no added sugar".
•Yogurts - Another base ingredient, is plain low fat yogurt. You'll find many ways to mix this into your frozen dog treats.

 •Baby Foods - These make a nice addition to a cool snack. Use organic fruit or vegetable blends for added flavor.
Tips & Techniques
•Ice Cube Trays - When using ice cube trays to freeze treats for your dog, you may want to buy a set just for him. You can make them a different color or style than the trays your family uses. There's nothing worse than putting a chicken broth ice cube in your glass of water!
•Cupcake Liners - You can use paper liners instead of ice cube trays to freeze treats. Once frozen, let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes. Then simply tear away the paper liner and watch your dog enjoy her treat.
Keep in mind, any time you're warm, your dog most likely is, too. So, when you come back from a long walk, hanging out by the pool or really working up a pant by competing in agility or fly-ball, remember, homemade frozen dog treats are sure to hit the spot.
