A picture is worth a thousand words!

Basically the French translated goes like this - Fill a bucket with water or bouillon, add dog treats and dog toys and the freeze the sucker. Hours of fun for dooger. :highfive:

I might add to let the thing melt for a few minutes. That way the tongue sticking to frozen fence-pole phenomenon won't happen. Hey it happened to me once as a kid....ONCE. ;)

bouillon has a high salt content and too much salt is bad for dogs. So people should use a salt free bouillon to made this treat.

It is a great idea, but Halo would look at it, look at me, and think "Yeah that's not happening!" Wouldn't cookies get soggy?

On that same thought though, in the summer I use ice cream pails and freeze half of it overnight (water) and then in the morning fill the rest with water so that the dog has cool water all day. If you have two pails just rotate them. One in one out.

Come on Marko, you only froze your tongue once?? I even had my ski pole stuck to my lips once in Quebec!:D

I freeze yogurt in ice cube trays or chicken stock. Clark prefers to play with them and eventually licks the floor. He is not getting a job cleaning anytime soon.

mastiff, the ice cube idea is a good one. Glad I can toss them onto the deck

I really like this concept!

I don't have any dogs (cats only), but I sure will make some of these for my two friends who have dogs... What a treat it will be for them when I show up at the next BBQ!!!

It started with Bud:rip: he loved doggy ice cream just to expensive to feed 200 pounds of dog so I started with the yogurt and he loved it. So I have used cranberry juice no sugar and a bit of honey and water. Just be creative and no sugar substitutes bad stuff but I am not sure if you could use stevia since it is all natural. Bonus if you have an outside area to let them have fun with them.

This is a great idea,
I think i will try this in summer although it will melt faster,
i think my dogs will love it more.

People need to realize just because something is 'all natural' does not mean it is safe for our pets or all people . I would not give a dog any sugar substitutes until I find out if is toxic or not. . I hope people will look on line and see if pets can eat stevia to be on the safe side. If it is toxic it could be really bad for a small dog.

Xylitol come from plants and it very toxic to pets.
