Kool Dogz

The ultimate outdoor frozen treat

Kool Dogz comes with everything you need to keep your dog hydrated, cool and entertained for hours on end. Just fill the bucket up with water or chicken broth, add your dog's favorite treats and toys and then freeze. Then attach it to the stand and watch as your dog has the time of his life licking this heavenly treat all day long. As far as summer dog toys go, this one is definitely numero uno.

Deep Freeze Arctic Bone - Half ice, half rubber... 100% fun!

The Deep Freeze Arctic Bone is a tasty frozen treat that can be enjoyed again and again, all summer long. Just fill the mold up with ice or chicken broth (you can even add a few pieces of kibble for some added enjoyment) and then freeze. Your dog will have a ball licking the ice bone and when it's all melted he can just keep on chewing on the rubber half of the toy. Pretty darn genius!

Chillin' Bones - Fill with yogurt, chicken broth or a fruit smoothie for a delicious frozen dog treat

A fun way to give your dog a tasty frozen treat that he'll absolutely love. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than buying those frozen doggie ice creams that you find at the supermarket. You can get really creative and fill with a yogurt, peanut butter and honey mixture or add some frozen berries and water or even chicken broth. Your dog will enjoy these tasty cold bones on any hot summer day. A great way to lower your dog's body temperature, give him hydration and some entertainment all at the same time!

More cool-down dog treats - They sure do make summer a lot cooler!
