Introduction: How to Make Pupsicles (For Your Dog)
Summer brings lots of fun, but it also brings lots of hot weather. Not only is it hot for humans, but it is also hot for dogs. Treat your dog to a popsicle that they will love.
Chicken stock (no onions)
Small dog bones
Step 1: Sterilizing the Mold
This step is the most important step. Cleaning your mold prevents any harmful bacteria growing from getting into your dog’s digestive system. I used hot water and dish soap. First pour hot water into the mold and put dish soap in as well. Let it sit for a good minute then dump it out and scrub it like how you would normally clean a bowl. Then take some more hot water and rinse it. Finally, dry it.
Step 2: Adding the Chicken Stock
For this step, you will need to pour your chicken stock into your mold. I poured mine to about 1/3 of the way per Pupsicle, but it really doesn’t matter. Once you are done, cover the mold with cling wrap. If you feel that the cling wrap won’t stay on, you can add some tape to hold it down.
Step 3: Adding the Stick and Freezing the Pupsicle
Make a slit in the cling wrap and insert a small dog bone. Put the whole mold in the freezer for a day or until you need it. Before you give this treat to your furry friend let it defrost for a minute so their tongue won’t stick to the ice. I hope you and your dog enjoyed the tutorial, but if there was something you didn’t understand, let me know I am happy to help!

This is so simple and easy i think my dog could make these for himself. Is there anything else you can mix in to give it some variety? Maybe peanut butter or something? Thanks for a great Instructable.

I really appreciate the positive feedback, I haven’t tried this but you can coat the outside of the ice with peanut butter before giving it to your dog. You can also very finely chop carrots and freeze them into the mixture. Make sure not to give them Pupsicles to often because if you add extra ingredients, the amount of fat will increase, which is not healthy for your dog.
