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.

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!
