After a very wet and mild start to the summer, the sunshine has finally put in an appearance! Hooray!
A sudden burst of vitamin D and everyone seems to be in a better mood. It can be hard work for our furry four legged friends though. They don’t always have the sense to take it easy or find some shade, so sometimes they need some encouragement to stay cool.
To help ours keep cool and hydrated we came up with the ‘Marmite Lolly’. I know it sounds a bit yuk, but trust me, they love them.
Heres what you do…
Add 1 dessert spoon of marmite to 750 ml boiling water and stir until disolved. Now pour into moulds to suit the size of your dog. ( I use a silicone muffin tray as my dogs are on the larger size, but you could use ice cube trays or lolly moulds). I then pop a treat in the middle of each and put them in the freezer until frozen. When they are completely frozen, you can remove them from the moulds and store in a freezer bag.
They make great treats for hot dogs on hot days!
