5 Delicious DIY Dog Treat Recipes For Summer
It's hot, you're eating an ice cream cone — why should your dog miss out? If your pooch is giving you puppy-dog eyes every time you're sampling a refreshing Summer treat, these recipes are for you.
Sadly, our dogs shouldn't eat human ice cream, or not much of it. Dogs need to avoid sugar, for starters. But there are plenty of tasty, wholesome, dog-friendly ingredients you can use to create DIY freezer concoctions for your pet. From slushies to doggy ice cream, ice licks to pupsicles, these are some of our favorites from around the Rover.com office. Bonus: they couldn't be easier to make!
Health tip: experts agree that no more than 10 percent of a dog's calories should come from treats, so keep that in mind when you're dishing out these goodies. Also, before you get creative with ingredients, make sure to avoid anything that might be dangerous for dogs (see a list here).
