My dog loves his ice cream especially on a hot day. I buy the 2 ounce cups of real ice cream and after we eat the ice cream I save them and wash them out to use for the dogs. It is a great way to recycle. I even keep the lids to place back on while the dog ice cream is freezing.


1 qt
plain yogurt
1 qt
of liquid (chicken broth, beef broth, water, whatever!!)
mixins to please the palate. example: canned chicken, other canned meats, canned pumpkin, mashed banana, peanut butter, etc.

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients well. Pour into small cups (small plastic 2 ounce ice cream cups would work great) and freeze over night. Serve frozen.
***NOTE***NEVER use chocolate, onions, garlic or other ingredients that are harmful/fatal to dogs)

I tried this for our pooches and they were in doggy heaven. We added a bit of raw garlic to the broth to help keep the pesky summer fleas and ticks away. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, me too!!! Levi passed away this August 23rd. He was my last baby. Actually, we have had so many losses over the past few years starting with my husband Sept 2007. Then that once in a lifetime dog you'll never have again with my Rottie Ladi Nov 2008. Then my first ever Rottie Axel January 2010. Then Ladi's son Levi Aug 2011. When the time is right I'll get 2 more Rottie's. But for now I'm still grieving all the losses.

I give my dog one a week. I don't think one a week or even one every two weeks will add that much in weight, especially if you use chicken. You will have to be careful of the chicken broth though because it is salty. You can use water in place of the chicken broth or heavily dillute the chicken broth to lessen the salt. My dog hasn't had a problem with gaining weight. But you'll have to decide. And if your dog gets enough exercise I wouldn't worry about it too much. In fact, I'm planning on switching my dog to a complete raw diet.
