Melbourne’s weather is (slowly) starting to heat up, and we’re all starting to get ready for the heat that looms in the months before us. Air conditioners are turned on and freezers are stocked up with ice-cold snacks and ice cubes to help us keep our body temperatures down. Although your pets may love to bask in the sun on a summer’s day, they would love an icy treat too! Follow our steps below to create a fun, simple and delicious DIY ice treat for your dog, or any other pet that’s willing to try!
What you need:
- Ice cube tray or cupcake pans
- Chicken broth or water
- A packet of your dog’s favourite biscuits/treats
Note: The ingredients used can be switched out for pretty much any dog-safe ingredient that will freeze. You could add as many layers as you like—be creative!
Fill the ice cube tray or cupcake pan with the chicken broth or water.
Add the biscuit or treat. If it’s a smaller treat, add a few and let them sink to the bottom of the tray for a special surprise! If it’s long and solid, it will make a great edible doggy popsicle stick!
Carefully place the tray in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until solid.
Watch your dog’s face light up as you hand over a treat!
