Nothing beats the summer heat like a nice cool snack. Check out this DIY dog pupsicle recipe that is both healthy and delicious. 

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 are 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 nutritious. While other dog cooling gear helps to cool your dog from the outside, a frozen snack can quickly cool them from the inside out. 

Now your dog can keep cool with his own yummy treat, and you don't have to feel guilty about not sharing yours.
