Some of my dog’s favourite dog treat recipes aren’t recipes at all.Most of the time, when I make frozen dog treats, I just open the fridge and toss together whatever I happen to have on hand. If they really like it, I post it here and call it a “recipe”. I get a lot of emails from folks who visit our frozen dog treat recipe page and ask if I think substitutions will work.
“Can I use sweet potato instead of pumpkin?” Absolutely yes. “My dog can’t have dairy, is there something else I can use?” Lots of possibilities! “My dog doesn’t like peanut butter. Any ideas?” You may not have a real dog, but yes.
I love getting these emails. I love any time that someone wants to try making a treat for their dog. Unlike baked treats, which require a bit of cool science to make them work, with frozen dog treats, the answer to “can I substitute something?” is almost always a resounding yes.
So, I thought why not share a mix and match frozen dog treat guide? That way, everyone can choose the flavours they think their dog will love the best.
It’s super easy, simply choose an ingredient from each section, mix and freeze. Just like that, you’ll have easy frozen dog treats that your pooch will love.
