I was visiting a fundog show in Hampshire last week when I came across a trade stand selling ice cream for dogs! What a brilliant idea! Actually it is a really healthy dog-friendly iced treat in a tub which contains pure, raw fruit and vegetable puree, aloe vera juice and flaxseed oil. These are great ingredients and this one is made by www.billyandmargot.com but why not trying to make your own at home?
Dogs will love the variety of textures and temperatures in a frozen treat when it gets hot. You can make their favourite KONG and stuff it with wet food and keep it in the freezer, or why not freeze some vegetables or tiny chicken pieces into some water or home made chicken stock (not stock cubes these are much too salty). Think of your dog in this heat, experiment, give them an iced treat!
I was born 20 yards from our allotment. My parents used to 'dig for victory' and never got out of the habit. I grew up on an allotment, so growing veggies is a way of life. I am also qualified as a dog behaviourist and I have set up my own business, www.blackdogdna.com
