One of the best ways to cool down on a hot summer day is with a delicious frozen treat. But popsicles, ice cream, and all that is yummy and frozen is not healthy for your dog to have - at least not frequently. Your dog will love these homemade popsicles (pupsicles!), and what's best is that they are simple to make and also nutritious. Now your dog can keep cool with his own yummy treat and you don't have to feel guilty about not sharing yours.
