I have yet to meet a dog yet who doesn't love ice cubes, and the Lapdogs are no exception.  When we heard about the Freezy Pups Kit, they couldn't wait to get their paws on it for review!  It's time to take our pup's ice cube treats to the next level with the coolest treats around.

The Freezy Pups Kit comes from Head of the Pack, a company based on the simple idea of developing a unique and different type of dog treat made from "good stuff." Founder Heather Klemm, a professional dog trainer and behaviorist, observed how often her clients gave their dogs ice cubes as snacks but always thought plain water was a little boring.  She suggested they mix healthy ingredients into the water to give it added flavor and her clients raved about how much their dogs LOVED them! The positive reaction inspired Heather to create a treat that dogs found tasty and fun to eat, as well as one that was fun and easy for the owners to make.

FreezyPups4The Freezy Pups Kit includes an adorable bone-shaped ice cube tray and a one-use packet of each of the four organic flavors: Chicken Soup, White Cheddar Cheese, Juicy Apple and Sweet Potato 'n Maple.  All of the flavors are wheat, corn, soy and gluten free and contain no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors.  And, you know the Lapdog household loves that they are Made in the USA!

FreezyPups5These treats couldn't be easier to make!  You simply mix one flavor packet in 7 ounces of hot water, then pour the mixture into the tray.  Place the tray in the freezer and ... now this was the hardest part for the Lapdogs ... wait.  Once frozen, you can serve as is or use them to add moisture/flavor to your dog's food (just melt a couple of cubes into your pup's kibble).  Each treat is less than 4 calories, so you can feel good about feeding them freely!

We made the Juicy Apple flavor for our first batch and as soon as I took the tray out of the freezer, I had an instant audience of little beggars!  I can't really blame them however... the Juicy Apple smelled simply delish as we were making them!  And just look at how adorable they turned out...

The little beggars were more than pleased and no one seemed to mind waiting in line for their turn...

The Lapdogs have always been huge "icy" fans, so when you add tasty flavors to the mix, they clearly think icies rock.  They have given the Freezy Pups Kit their Official 16 Paws Up Seal of Approval... or maybe that's 20 paws up because their foster brother Bentley threw in an extra 4!  Little Ben thought the apply icies were the bomb!

Hmmm... I don't know that the fur-girls do love ice, but I'm delighted to see that the mix is corn-free and the flavors include Sissy-approved versions.

My dogs love to eat anything, but it's funny to watch them eat ice or frozen treats. They think it's such a bonus the freezy pups kits are free of bad things for their health!

My dog Walter the Pug followed Freezy Pups on twitter and liked their FB page.

Those are so cute. My pack all love to chew on and eat ice so these would be fun for all of us.

By the way, my tee shirt arrived and is adorable. Thank you. I'm sure it'll get a lot of use this fall.

What a great idea! Max, Sam and LittleDog love ice cubes. Right now they're getting little heart shaped ones but I'll bet bone shapes would be way tastier. Thanks for the tip Nic! Have a great weekend.

Bubblesknits said...

Okay, now that's just a great idea. :) Micro always snags the ice cubes that the kids drop on the floor when they fix a drink, so he must think they're pretty awesome, too. Off to check out their website.

My dogs are so weird. They don't like ice cubes unless I freeze a treat in them. Come to think of that maybe they're just really smart????? hummmmm.....
