    • Icy Paws Frozen Homemade Dog Treats

      copycat Icy PawsAs 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.

        I make these with the tuna for my two Golden Retrievers, Scarlet and Benjamin, they love them and it is a great hot weather treat!

        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.

        My bassett hound loves ice, so I bet he will love these also!

      Re: Pet Urine Smells

      I dont think you can completely get it out once it has soaked down to the padding. All you can do is regular cleaning and use pee pads available at most stores now. I sprinkle liberally with baking...

      Re: Pet Urine Smells

      When I had this problem (with my 14 year old dalmation) white vinegar worked very well. I thought I would have to replace the carpet, but I didn't. It may work better on dog urine than cat urine. ...

      Re: Pet Urine Smells

      Hi All,
      Please don't use Febreeze as it irritates the lungs of many of us. It only covers smells. White vinegar neutralizes cat urine smell, although after a while I smell vinegar and think it is...
