Winter is Furlicious with Freezy Pups!
Frozen Dog Treat Review and Giveaway

As I told the folks at Freezy Pups recently, we're the go to blog for cooler weather reviews of frozen dog treats. Florida Winters are remarkably mild and make for year round enjoyment of water activities like Tanner's daily swims and even frozen treats. Today we also discovered a new game: Bobbing for Freezy Pups.  Tanner quickly retrieved and devoured 6 Freezy Pups for our SafeMade Pet silicone, paw-shaped bowl.  You've got to try this with your water-loving dog. It is a new way to experience water fun.

Tanner was Fast
at Retrieving the Freezy Pups


Ready?
My biggest question in this review was " How can a treat made with water actually taste good?" Much to my surprise the answer was clear. Freezy Pups uses USDA Organic ingredients to create and then dehydrate the treats. Our job is simply to re-hydrate them with water, followed by freezing for a unique, cooling snack.


Of course Freezy Pups don't have to be served frozen. The melted consistency is surprisingly creamy and rich, making a wonderful topping for a bowl of dry kibble. Special occasions may call for a few Freezy Pups melted atop our Organix kibble--maybe Thanksgiving!

It's That Easy!
Tanner and Oliver enjoyed, even eagerly pursued this photo shoot, waiting patiently for the reward they knew was coming. I enjoyed watching them lick and savor the flavor of their new-found favorite frozen treats. This was much faster than our usual pupsicle recipe that requires mashing and blending up foods to then pour into an ice cube tray. Preparation of Pupsicles is one simple step: Mix with water. Once you've poured the mixture into the ice cube tray and frozen it, you're in business with a batch of yummy, delicious and nutritious treats for your fidos.


I was first introduced to Freezy Pups earlier this year when I ventured to Global Pet Expo, . Their booth was swamped with interested shopkeepers and nosy curious bloggers like me. After their product was awarded the coveted 2011 Best in Show, I was assured a very slow opportunity to review this product. Thank goodness I finally got my samples.

Oliver Enjoys his Frozen Snack
As tough as it was to make contact with the very busy Freezy Pups gang, I couldn't give up. Organic is what we do here at All Things Dog Blog, so this was not a product I could miss out on. I became a woman possessed. Fortunately I was on their waiting list for product--a very long one. 


Now that Tanner and Oliver have approved, my job is not done. I plan to try stuffing Kongs with these frozen yummies next. Doesn't that sound like a wonderful afternoon treat? And the flavors; they're home runs! Imagine White Cheddar Cheese, Chicken Soup, Juicy Apple, and Sweet Potato 'n Maple.
