• Icy Paws Frozen Homemade Dog Treats

    As a kid I remember my mother on rare occasions purchasing cute little 4 packs of frozen treats for our dog. They smelled rather like frozen pancake batter. To this day I still enjoy watching my dog enjoy his frozen treats, but now I prefer to make my own at a fraction of the cost. Here are two tried and true recipes your pet is sure to love...

    Both of these recipes can be poured into actual ice cream cones if your pet enjoys the cone too! Just be sure to tell the rest of the family that they're for your furry kids!

    Icy Paws Frozen Homemade Dog Treats


    64 oz plain or vanilla yogurt
    1 Small can of tuna (drained)
    2 Teaspoons garlic powder
    24 (3 oz). Plastic (not paper) bathroom cups


    Mix all ingredients in a bowl, spoon into plastic cups and freeze overnight. To serve,invert the cup, run under hot water for a second or two, pop the treat out of the cup into your pup's dish. He/she will be thrilled!


    Frosty Paws #2
    32 oz vanilla yogurt
    1 mashed banana or 1 large jar of babyfood (meat flavored)
    2 Tablespoons peanut butter
    2 Tablespoons honey

    Mix all ingredients in a bowl, spoon into plastic cups and freeze overnight. To serve, invert the cup, run under hot water for a second or two, pop the treat out of the cup into your pup's dish.

    If your pet has a habit of scarfing down foods too quickly, you can use a wider base style cup or bowl and this will help slow him down when he eats.

      We have a couple of grand dogs who love ice cubes. They will go crazy for these! Thank you for sharing the recipes.

      Great recipes and much better for their teeth than ice cubes. The second recipe made with bananas would be a good human treat, too!

      And for small dogs or more frequent treats, just use an ice cube tray.

      These recipes are great! However Do Not give your pets garlic in any form, it is a member of the onion family and will cause red blood cells to burst in your pet. Aspca.org has a good article on this (as well as petinsurance.com) the Aspca has a nice comprehensive list for reference. All the other flavors in the first recipe will make it tasty enough.

    At this time, I only have one dog (a sheltie). Being single and working a lot I don't see me replacing the one that passed for a while. Current dog loves being in charge at our house!
