17 Frozen Dog Treats That Any Pup Lover Can Make

Summer is one of the best times of the year, especially for those of us who only get warm weather for 3 months of the year.

It's a time to get outside, get active and have a lot of fun. And it's much easier to have fun when you can have your pet by your side. But just like humans, doggie can get overheated and dehydrated pretty easily when he's running around in the sun and heat.

Here are 17 frozen dog treats we've found that work great for rehydrating and refreshing your pup (and some of them you can share)!

Note: A lot of these recipes require a mold. Here are some of our favorite from Amazon.

Pup's Frozen Dinner

Ingredients:

  • 13 ounce can of your dog's favorite wet food
  • 2 medium plastic freezer bags

Directions:
Place wet food into the plastic freezer bags and use a rolling pit to gently remove all extra air from the bags while rolling the wet food into a thin, even layer in the bags. Lay flat in the freezer for 20-30 minutes until the freezing process has begun -- the sheet of dog food should feel firm yet pliable.

Using  a thin utensil like the back of a butter knife, press lines into the sheet of dog food, horizontally and vertically, where you'll eventually break it into squares. (Don't press so hard that you actually break the sheet apart yet, though.) Return the bag to the freezer until frozen solid.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup broccoli
