Keeping your Puppies cool.....

Are you like me, in trying to keep your dogs cool in this increasingly hot weather? Do you remember my Instagram post from a few weeks ago.....?

When my client Jeremy showed me what he had done to cool down his beautiful Rottweiler puppy Bobby, I had to take a picture and share it with you all.  But now we go a step further as Jeremy has kindly agreed to share some of his recipes with us all. Jeremy came up with two delicious recipes to keep Bobby nice and cool (Keep scrolling for super cute pictures)

May I present to you Jeremy's Recipe for:

If there is one thing I love it's ice cream and it turns out the same can be said of my 18-week-old Rottweiler. Here are the recipes for two of her favourite flavours.

Peanut Butter & Banana

INGREDIENTS:

1 x medium ripe banana
3 x tbsp. smooth peanut butter (please make sure your peanut butter doesn't contain Xylitol as its dangerous for dogs)
2 x tbsp. unsweetened natural yoghurt
2 x tbsp. water

METHOD:

Peel and break up the banana, putting the pieces into a bowl.
With a fork, mash the banana pieces up until they become a thick paste.

Add the peanut butter and natural yoghurt to the banana.
With a fork whisk the mixture until all the ingredients are combined.


Add the water and mix to combine.


Pour the mix into an ice cube tray and freeze for 4 – 6 hours or until solid.

Fruits of the Forest

INGREDIENTS:

14 x Raspberries
6 x Strawberries
14 x Blueberries
2 x tbsp. unsweetened natural yoghurt
2 x tbsp. water

With a fork mash all the fruit up.


Add the natural yoghurt and water to the fruit and mix until well combined.


Pour the mix into an ice cube tray and freeze for 4 – 6 hours or until solid.

Once the mixture has frozen then you can pop out an ice cream cube or two as a treat on a hot day, or whenever you think your four-legged friend deserves one!

Bobbie loves it when I make these for her, not least because she gets to lick the bowl clean after I’ve finished.

This would also be great in small amounts, frozen into a Kong or Goodie Bone which you can get from our Online store if you don't already have one, take a look below. As with all treats for your dog they should always be supervised when eating and try in small amounts as part of a balanced diet. You are the only person that knows your dog best.
Let us know if you try this out and if you have recipes of your own or any other dog cooling ideas you would like to share below.
