When it’s hot outside, the perfect way to spoil your pooch is with frozen dog treats.

No summer is complete until you’ve thrown a few cheeseburgers on the grill. There’s something so wholesome about a backyard BBQ. Most people believe that human food is dangerous for dogs, but I think if done carefully – and in moderation – you can absolutely share this all-American food with your favourite dog. That’s why we created this cheesy meaty frozen dog treat recipe.

Cheeseburger frozen dog treats are one of Kol’s favourite summer foods.

It’s so easy to make your dog a cool and delicious homemade frozen dog treat.

This cheeseburger frozen dog treat recipe took 10 minutes start to finish. You can make it using a left over hamburger from your family barbeque – as long as it doesn’t have any onion or other toxic spices in it – or you can brown up some ground beef especially for these DIY Dog treats.

Kolchak was wild about this tasty and safe way to share a cheeseburger with your dog. I think that happy tongue says it all – these frozen treats taste GOOD.

Yield: 2 trays

The AKC recommends staying away from fatty cheeses like cheddar and using cottage cheese instead to avoid causing pancreatitis and weight gain. Most dogs love cottage cheese just as much as other cheeses!

Hi Mary,

I can totally understand your concern. Not all treats are right for all pets. If your dog is predisposed to pancreatitis or requires a low-fat diet, this wouldn't be the right treat. to give. After discussing it with my vet and doing the math, I'm pretty comfortable giving Kolchak (and most healthy, active dogs) low-fat cheddar cheese in moderation.

Low fat cheddar generally has 7 - 10 grams of fat per shredded cup. Split into the 16 treats this recipe makes, that's 0.6G of fat in each serving. They could even be made in a smaller mld ot reduce this further.Plus, it's generally recommended that treats be 10% or less of your dog's diet.

All of that said? If cheese or dairy fat is a concern for your dogs? There's absolutely no harm in using a different cheese than the one I've shown in my photos! We've made these with all kinds of cheese depending on what I have on hand - mozzarella, feta, cheddar, farmer's cheese, cottage cheese...You can use whatever makes you most comfortable!

Thanks for sharing an alternate idea - we appreciate it! Jodi and Kol
