Does your pup need a cool treat on a hot day? If so, you can make an easy and affordable treat/toy for your dog. All you need is a plastic water bottle and water!
Remove any packaging or plastic from the water bottle, and if possible, wash off any glue residue left behind. Thoroughly clean the bottle if using any chemicals to remove the glue. Then, fill up the bottle with water and freeze.
When the water is frozen, give it to your dog to chew on, lick, and play with. The cap can be left on while it is frozen shut, but once the water starts to thaw, it is best to remove the cap to avoid a choking hazard. To make the toy more enticing, use chicken or beef broth instead of water, or create a mixture of the two. Experiment by freezing chunks of meet into the ice.
This can also be used as a puppy teething toy to soothe painful gums.
For best results, supervise your pup while playing with this toy!
