Weekly Drool Recipe: Bully Flake Ice Cube Dog Treats

BFlake Ice Cubes 8.14.14

Temperatures are still high during the month of August, especially where we are in Virginia! To help dogs endure the summer heat, we created an icy concoction and visited the lovable mutts at Richmond Animal Care & Control to treat them on National Mutt Day!

Another dog holiday, DOGust 1st, happened the following day, so it was the perfect time to give some snacks and attention to these dogs waiting for their forever homes. Dogs love icy treats, so we combined a new product that’s easy to use with ice for a treat that these rescue dogs loved!

We recently introduced to our product line Bully Flakes: soft, highly-digestible bully stick flakes that are a great food enhancer. If your dog has sensitive teeth and is unable to chew bully sticks, Bully Flakes have the great taste of bully sticks in a different form! Bully Flakes can be sprinkled on your dog’s food daily, especially if they are picky eaters or lacking appetite.

A member of our Customer Service team brought home Bully Flakes to try in ice cubes with her pibble, and they were a hit! How much Bully Flakes you put in the ice cube is up to you- you can sprinkle a pinch or measure out a teaspoon.

 

Step by Step instructions for Bully Flake Ice Cube Dog Treats

1.  Using clean ice cube trays*, sprinkle or spoon out bully flakes into the individual cubes.

2. Add cold or room temperature water, filling to the top of the cube.

3. Freeze for 1 hour or more to achieve a frozen solid ice cube dog treat.

4. Feed your dog a few Bully Flake Ice Cube Treats as a way to cool down on a hot day or a reward for just being a great dog! We are sure he will enjoy it.

*If you reuse the tray, be sure to only use it for pet treats; it should not be used for human consumption.

There you have it! An easy, two-ingredient frozen dog treat perfect for hot weather.

 

Rocco especially loved our Bully Flake treats. He gobbled up four of them!
