Summer Treats to Beat the Dallas Heat for You and Your Dog!


It’s getting hot hot hot and summer is definitely here in Dallas. Now we are not only allowed to wear white again, but it’s also completely encouraged to indulge in iced coffees all day and frozen treats by the pool. While the canines can’t have coffee and cocktails, there’s no reason our dogs can’t join in on a sweet snack!

We have found the best pupsicles out there and incredible adult frozen beverages to go along with them. The perfect treats for the perfect pair - a girl and her best friend.

Use any traditional popsicle container, ice cube tray, or adorable silicone molds like the one below to freeze the pupcicles.
