Drool Dog Recipe: Birthday Ice Cake for Dogs

IMG_3807_facebooksizeDogs love an occasional icy treat, which is just what we at Best Bully Sticks did to celebrate the birthday of Tuesday, our resident Great Dane puppy who turned 1!

We decided to incorporate one of our new exciting products, Chloe’s Sustainable Protein Treats, into our birthday cake. These fun, start-shaped dog biscuits are actually made of cricket protein! Crickets are a sustainable source of protein, iron, and amino acids, and the crickets used in Chloe’s treats are human grade. Chloe’s Treats are hypoallergenic dog treats with no eggs, corn, grains, or soy and come in delicious flavor combinations like Sweet Potato & Cinnamon, Peanut Butter & Turkey Bacon, Peanut Butter & Banana, and Apple & Turmeric. For Tuesday’s Birthday Ice Cake, we used the Peanut Butter & Turkey Bacon variety.

 

Now for the Instructions!PB bacon chloes

  1. Choose a medium size mixing bowl and line with the top layer of treats. In our case we chose Chloe’s Treats for their fun shape. Put just enough water in to cover the layer of treats and freeze.
  2. Once that layer is frozen, lay the treats you have chosen for the middle section against the sides of the bowl (you want your dog to be able to smell the treat). Fill with a thin layer (1/4 in.) of water and freeze them into place.
  3. Once that layer has been frozen, add the remaining water to fill the bowl. You want to leave at least an inch of room at the top of the bowl because it will swell as it freezes.
  4. When you are ready to give the treat to your dog, you can run the outside of the bowl under warm water to loosen it from the bowl.

Pro tip: Choose a bowl with an interesting shape. Decorative bundt cake pans are a great way to do this!

5 Ways to Celebrate this Valentine’s Day with your Dog

valentine corgi webAt Best Bully Sticks, we believe every day should be treated like Valentine’s Day!

After all, Fido deserves love, affection, good exercise, chews, and toys to keep him happy year round.

But if you truly want to celebrate, here are 5 ways to make this Valentine’s Day extra special for you and your canine friend:

 

1. Make some delicious treats in the kitchen. If you enjoy playing in the kitchen, show your dog some love by whipping up treats that he’ll go nuts for!

For some sweet decadence: Valentine’s Day Carob Dipped Dog Biscuits

For a cheesy, easy, gourmet snack: Chock Full of Cheese Cookies

If you don’t have the time to make drool-worthy dog treats for Valentine’s Day, you can show your canine best friend(s) some love in other ways.shutterstock_237411067_web

2. Get some exercise — it will benefit both of you! Take him for a longer than usual walk. Does Fido like to fetch? Get out that squeeze toy, ball, or Frisbee and wear him out — fit, healthy dogs make happy dogs!

3. Give him a new toy. Keeping your dog entertained is vital for his health and happiness.

4. Buy some of his favorite dog chews or treats or maybe one he hasn’t had yet. Browse our large supply of bully sticks, chews and treats, and dog bones.

5. And last but not least, cuddle! What better way to spend quality time together than a neck or belly scratch, a massage, or relaxing on the couch together?

 

From Best Bully Sticks, wishing you and your pooch lots of love this Valentine’s Day!
