Summer Snacks to Make for Your Dog!

Summer months imply that you would be spending a lot of time indoors and avoiding the heat in the great outdoors. With so much time on your hands, why not embark on an incredible treat-making adventure. You would definitely have fun making them and your fur baby would no doubt have a great time helping out (trying to sneak a bite). 

Here are some treats that you can explore:

Peanut Butter Dog Doughnuts

This homemade dog donut is easy to make and very delicious too. The ingredients are within reach and there is no special process involved. Here are the necessary ingredients: 

  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 1 Cup flour
  • Cup peanut butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Eggs
  • Bacon Bits

Apple and Chicken Pup Pops

Think about popsicles, but for dogs. Your pup is sure to enjoy this refreshing treat just as much as kids love popsicles in summer. Here are the necessary ingredients: 

  • Cup water
  • Cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 1 Gala apple

You could use raw porkhide sticks, however, it is more ideal to use Enzy-Chews. They have the extra perk of tartar control and they are easier to digest as well. 

Yogurt Peanut Butter Banana

This is one of the most simple and straightforward treats for summer, and your pup is bound to love it. Here are the necessary ingredients: 

  • 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter (confirm that the brand you are opting for doesn't have any xylitol)
  • 1 large banana sliced 
  • 32 ounces plain yogurt (yogurt is an excellent source of calcium and double as a probiotic). 

Ensure that you do not add any artificial sweetener particularly those that have xylitol as a component because of its toxicity. 

Conclusion

These are some great treat ideas for your pet. In addition, ensure that your pet has access to water always so that they can stay hydrated.

Involving Your Pup in Summer Activities

Summer is a beautiful time to be outdoors and you would typically be up to a whole lot of fun stuff. Your pup would definitely appreciate being included in all of these fun activities, and here are some that they would especially love:

Pool Parties 

Summer heralds hot months and a lot of time spent in the pool, and Winter would no doubt love to splash around too. You can picture his tongue hanging out the side of his mouth and then the characteristic wiggle that splashes water all over you. If you can picture it, then you should definitely do it!

Backyard BBQs 

The lingering smell of meat in the air and the occasional treats you toss which are expertly caught by Winter. This is definitely a dream event by all standards; their favorite person in the world and treats! 

Picnics in the Garden 

You can enjoy the warm sunshine, some very cool lemonade, and pastries with the butterflies all fluttering around. This sounds like a dream paradise and definitely one you shouldn't enjoy alone. Your pup would have a lot of fun and probably get some exercise from chasing butterflies.

Cozy Dinners 

Cozy dinners on the patio in the cooling evening sound like a wonderful idea. You can take in the night air and sounds and you can be certain that Winter would enjoy the calm, laying at your feet. This is an awesome doggo-human moment and definitely one that you would remember for a long time to come.

Hikes 

Going on a hike? Be sure to bring your furry companion along. Nobody loves the outdoors and its sounds as much as they do.

Summertime is the Best Time for Puppy Photos

Summer means the warmer months and of course, spending lots of time outdoors. Since most places are accessible and open in summer, you can definitely find a lot of picturesque backgrounds to use for pictures. Here are some of the best places for puppy pictures that you can explore: 

The Beach 

The beach offers the dual perk of having a great time and taking beautiful pictures too. Following a couple of hours of running around the beach with your pup and playing in the water, well, it's picture time! You could explore a couple of picture ideas like putting a mini hat on your pet's head or having them stretched out on a beach chair. 

The Mountains 

The mountains offer an amazing, picturesque background for pictures. It's like being on top of the world, and the rest of the earth is just at your feet. This is definitely one place to take majestic pictures of your pet. 

The Fields 

Fields with wildflowers and rich soil could be great for a photo op. It would be like being cast into nature and if your pet is very playful, you could capture pictures of them in action. There is an off chance that a butterfly might rest on its nose, so, have your camera ready. 

Sunsets

Sunsets are never a bad idea for pictures. If anything, they make for a soft, beautiful, and calming background. Sunsets provide that incredible feeling in pictures that no other background can beat. So, in addition to enjoying a beautiful sunset, you get to keep a memory from it. 

Conclusion 

There are no doubt many backgrounds for photographing your pup, but these four definitely top the list.
