These sweet treats are perfect for your dog this summertime.

The dog days of summer are upon us, and no one wants to be baking dog treats over a hot stove. But that doesn’t mean your dog should go without. Instead of baking up snacks, try freezing them!

Not only are these so easy to make and fun for Fido to eat, they are full of nutritious tidbits that will keep your pup not only feeling good but nice and cool.

A silicone mold is the easiest way to make these. We got ours at Amazon.com.

A silicone mold is the easiest way to make these treats, but if you can’t get one, a traditional ice cube tray or small paper cup would work, too. The silicone molds come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

I love the ice sticks, because my pups like to carry things in their mouths and hold things between their paws. They’re also a great source of mental stimulation, as your dog works to figure it out!
