    • Icy Paws Frozen Homemade Dog Treats

      car seats-b101-frosty-paws.jpgAs 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.

        Just pour plain yogurt into a container. Add small chunks of tuna, stir & freeze. Cut into bits & dogs will love them. I was out of tuna, so sprinkled garlic powder & stirred. They lived them too!

      Re: Our "new" Pet Bed

      I'm always willing to share pics of my babies :newmom: (I have 2 two-legged, and 2 four-legged)! Of course, the word babies is a bit misleading as the human 2 are 24 & 21. LOL!

      Our "new" Pet Bed

      Well, I'm not sure if this counts because it's more repurposing than making something... but what the heck!

      When we had our old couch our little dog (a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Prince) was...

      If you have an old chandelier hanging around, scrub it down, spray paint it white and attach a couple birdhouses onto it. You can use silicone adhesive so that it will be sturdy in the wind....
