August is known as the “dog days of summer.” This time of year our pups get hot, but we can cool them off by making frozen dog treats.
You can make your homemade frozen dog treats with yogurt, peanut butter, berries, and more. These treats are good for your dog and help them beat the heat — plus they’ll love a special snack!
