There’s nothing better on a Summer day than some fresh, juicy watermelon! Did you know that this is a great healthy food to share with you dog? You can let them nibble on a slice or take it one step farther and make frozen watermelon treats that your dog will love. Since I always love to take things one step farther, I whipped up these treats for Lucy on one particularly hot and muggy day. She loved them so much that she wanted to eat them right out of the mold, and the bowl, and my hand… she pretty much wanted to eat them all no matter what.
Make Frozen Watermelon Treats That Your Dog will Love
These were so easy to make, I can’t believe I haven’t done it before.The watermelon rind bowl is totally optional, but I think it looks so cute and made it even more fun for me to present the treats to Lucy. When you make these, you can totally share them with your pup like I did (I always taste what I make for Lucy!). You could also use the blended up watermelon to make a watermelon mojito for yourself!
According to the AKC, watermelon “is a health-food powerhouse, low in calories and packed with nutrients—vitamins A, B6, and C, and potassium.” When giving it to your dog, watch out for seeds that could cause an intestinal blockage. “It’s also probably not a good idea to allow a dog to chew on the rind, because it can cause gastrointestinal upset.”
