Guess I'll add that one of my dogs favorites is "pup-sicles". Living in south FL, it's awfully HOT. I take the pop-sicle trays I bought for the grandkids and pour in stock (chicken, beef, whatever I have on hand) and stick it in the freezer. When it's about half frozen, I add a Butler's P'nut butter cookie (my guys LOVE them) as the "stick" and pop them back in to finish freezing. Once they're done, I turn the crew out with the kiddie pool which is filled a little over halfway with water and a couple of tubs of ice, give them their pup-sicles and they have a ball. It keeps them entertained and cool at the same time for a couple of hours.
i am a very bad pet owner. i do not cook for my dogs. i was cooking scout her training treats for awhile but then pyrmom turned me on to the natural balance dog food rolls and i use that instead. scout loved these: take a package of hot dogs. slice the hotdog half wise instead of longways. then cut those pieces up in to 4 pieces. put them on a microwavable plate with a paper towel under them and 1 over them. microwave them on high for increments of 2 minutes until all the pieces are dried up but not burnt. they last for at least a week outside of the fridge. you can freeze them and take them out as you need them for training. every dog i know loves them.
scout1, I thought I'd try the hot dog idea, but then thought hey! We've got a dehydrator that we haven't used in years. Hot dog chips for treats right! Well, about 10 hours later they still weren't completely dried out so I pulled them out. My wife and the dogs both like them, but I'm going to try it your way next time! ltlgto
