Dog Popsicles: awesome summer dog treat or epic fail?

June 3, 2015
Dog frozen treat

 

 

Well as many D.I.Y’ers know, not every project is successful. I recently came across a post for doggy ice treats for hot summer days. I thought to myself “hey, it’s like ice cream for dogs”, my ever so curious pitbull will LOVE IT.

Here is what you need:

  • Water
  • Some rubber dog toys
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock
  • A freezer safe bowl

Step 1: Add one cup of Chicken Stock to about 1 liter of water (or more if desired) in your bowl.

Step 2: Throw in some Rubber toys, I just used two for this experiment. Use something familiar to your pet, so it captivates their attention.

Step 3: Throw it in the freezer and allow it to set.

All of our ingredients in the bowl and ready to freeze

 

I left my concoction in the freezer over night to make sure it was good and solid. About midday, the hottest time of the day here in Trinidad, I gave it to Delilah.

All frozen and ready to go!

A little lick and a sniff, and that was it.

She sniffed it for about 1 minute and walked away. I think it’s safe to say for me, this experiment was an EPIC FAIL. On my second attempt at Doggy Popsicles, I added a bit more chicken stock to see if this would stimulate Delilah’s sense of smell,* sigh*, unfortunately still an epic fail. Now before I swear anybody off this treat, let me tell you a bit about Delilah. She is a hyper, energetic, off the wall kind of dog. She is extremely active, so for something to captivate her attention, it needs to either squeak, roll, crunch or bounce.

Let me know how your doggy’s reacted to this summer treat. Comment below.

 

Next times:

 Remember in school when you had to do “did wells and next times”?? Well my “next time” is to try to add a new spin on it and add some canned salmon. I’ll keep you posted on my results.

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Truly hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your notion is outstanding; the issue is some thing that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m pretty content that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing relating to this.

    I was just searching for this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative websites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.

    An attention-grabbing dialogue is value comment. I think that it’s best to write extra on this matter, it might not be a taboo subject however generally individuals are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
