The Healthy (and Delicious) Treat All the Dogs Are Barking About This Summer

Summer is here and she certainly isn’t being bashful about making her presence known.  Warmer temperatures often mean time for cool, refreshing treats; not just for you, for your dog too.  Dogs enjoy a cool or frozen treat as much as you during the dog days for summer.  Have you ever had frozen coconut yogurt for both you and your dog?  No need to go to the tropics to enjoy this tropical delight, this frozen dog treat can be made from the comforts of your home.  Make sure to set aside some for you too, this is too refreshing not to enjoy yourself.

Coconut flakes are great for dogs
Coconut flakes have many health benefits for you and your dog


  • 1 cup coconut water
