DIY Frozen Kong Treats For Dogs

Here’s how to stuff Kong toys with dog-friendly treats, freeze ’em, and give ’em to your dog on a hot summer day:

Tips For Serving Frozen Dog Kongs

1. The longer you keep the Kong in the freezer — stuffed with goodies — the more challenging it will be for your dog to get the treats out. Use that to determine how long you want to keep the Kong in the freezer. 2. A frozen Kong toy filled with treats can sometimes become a little messy as it thaws out. (It depends on exactly what you put inside and how those things liquefy at room temperature… or hotter, if outdoors.) 3. Make sure that your dog has a place to enjoy his frozen (and now thawing!) Kong treat somewhere that is easy to clean — like outside, on the deck or patio.
