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.
The 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!
These 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!
