A month early for summer, but Mother Nature doesn’t always care about the calendar, it’s hot this week. Don’t forget to keep you pets safe and well-hydrated. Here is a simple frozen treat that is healthy, cooling, hydrating, filling, and can help their digestion. Your dogs should love it and your kids will love making it. They might even like eating it, too!
I wasn’t really looking for a homemade dog biscuit recipe, I’ve got more than enough treats on my to-bake list already, but one came looking for me anyway and it proved to be a great father/daughter project for Ally, my dog lover. And judging by Dash’s reaction, it worked out alright for him, too.
I tried homemade dog biscuits with our first dog, Lola, twice when I was feeling particularly paternal (this was before the kiddos arrived making that a permanent feeling). I remember each time distinctly because I was in no rush to repeat the recipe. The first one involved lots of raw meat that had to be formed and cooked. The second attempt involved a smell so ghastly that it lingered in the house for days. It should be noted in neither episode did my discomfort stop Lola from snarfing down all the treats.
