As a kid I remember my mother on rare occasions purchasing cute little four packs of icy paws frozen dog treats for our sweet old 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 Dog Treats

64 oz plain or vanilla yogurt
1 small can of tuna (drained)
2 teaspoons garlic powder (see note below)
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!

Garlic, in small doses is considered to be safe for dogs. There are reports that using garlic (which contains Thiosulphate can cause hemoytic anemia or liver damage, but garlic contains only Trace amounts of thiosulphate and a dog would have to consume HUGE amounts of this for negative effects to occur.

  1. we have a couple of grand dogs who love ice cubes. they will go crazy for these! thank you for sharing the recipes.

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

  3. great recipes for our fur babies. i’m sure my handsome petey boy will love this! and perfect timing with the hot summer approaching.

  4. just in time for the texas heat my new puppies will love these! i’m not doing tuna at 100+ but the other sounds pretty good for them.

  5. just made the 2nd recipe..had more left so I put it into my buddy’s bowl n he didn’t even taste it he ate it so he is gonna love the iced ones…this for the recipe!!!.

  6. 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. has a good article on this (as well as the aspca has a nice comprehensive list for reference.

    all the other flavors in the first recipe will make it tasty enough. 🙂

  7. my lab loves these! every time i go to the freezer, he’s right on my heels! actually, he’s always right on my heels!


  8. 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!

  9. Will definitely be making these for my lab Raven. She already gets a couple spoons of yogurt as a special treat in her chow. Also give her apple slices (with seeds taken out) or some banana too.
