With summer almost here you may want to have a few frozen dog treats ready for a nice cool treat to give your dog.

Frozen pumpkin dog treats are an easy treat to make for your dog that can be made 2 ways with only 2 to 3 ingredients depending on which one you make.

The main ingredient in both of these recipes is pumpkin, which has many benefits for dogs. You can read about the benefits here.

Two Ingredient Frozen Pumpkin Dog Treats

Five frozen pumpkin dog treats in the shape of an ice cube.

To make these you just need two ingredients, pumpkin, and plain Greek yogurt.

½ cup plain Greek yogurt

½ cup pumpkin (canned is fine)

Put the pumpkin and yogurt in a bowl and mix well. Once it is fully mixed fill some ice cube trays. This can be done in two ways.

One is to put it into a zipper baggie, cut the corner off, and squeeze it into the cubes.

The other method is to just spoon it into each cube. Either method works.

Then freeze for a few hours or overnight.

Once frozen give to your dog. Pumpkin can cause bowel changes in some dogs so it is recommended to start with small amounts and increase gradually.

Ask your vet if you are unsure about what is a good starting point for your dog.

Three Ingredient Frozen Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Treats

A stack of frozen dog treats.

For this recipe, you need pumpkin, plain Greek yogurt, and peanut butter.

½ cup pumpkin (canned is fine)

½ cup plain Greek yogurt

¼ cup peanut butter

Place all three ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Once mixed spoon or squeeze from a bag into an ice cube tray. Then freeze for a few hours, or overnight.

Once frozen these can be given to your dog. Again start small and consult your vet if you have any concerns about how much to give your dog.

As you can tell from the pictures both Luna and Morgan liked these treats. Morgan took hers so fast I could barely get the picture. They approved of both recipes.

Notes About Both Recipes

These recipes can easily be doubled or more, but keep in mind that you will end up with a large number of frozen dog treats that need to be given in small quantities. 

So far I have limited my dogs to one each, with Luna getting about twice the size as Morgan and haven’t had any issues. But every dog is different and too much pumpkin may cause diarrhea in some dogs.

As noted above, if you have concerns check with your vet.

Both of the recipes above can be stored in a freezer-safe container. I’ve had mine in the freezer for about a month and they seem to be holding up really well. My dogs gobble them up as fast now as they did the first time they had them.
