This summer has been blazing hot and horribly dry. The weather has brought everything from horrible disasters like the terrible wildfires spreading across Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska to the small discomforts of hot dogs and no air conditioning to cool off.
We've been using our pool and the river to cool down. When Dogster's asked if we would be interested in trying out some of their ice cream for dogs, and hosting a giveaway for our fans, we jumped on it. Anything to help stay cool, right?
Dogsters comes in two different flavors, Nutly Peanut Butter and Cheese, and Mintë Kissably Fresh. They are made in the USA and have eight ingredients each, by my count. An interesting and awesome thing about their packaging is that they also have a braille accessible label for the visually impaired. It isn't something that I need, but I can really appreciate a company taking an extra step to make their product more easily accessible.
|These remind me of those little ice cream cups they gave you at school, with the wooden stick to use as a spoon.|
Also, since this is a frozen item that you purchase already frozen, it is awesome that they are available alongside the frozen novelties in grocery stores across the country. Which makes it easy to run to the store for some ice cream for the humans, and a frozen treat for the dogs, all at once.
And my dogs were fans. It took a tiny bit of encouragement when I told them to take it, I think because as a frozen item it doesn't have a super strong smell, but once they took a first lick, both of my dogs loved it. Pallo kept trying to steal the whole thing from me because he thought he could enjoy it better on his own.
I did end up sending him outside with it to enjoy, and he licked the entire container clean without trying to eat the container. If you have dogs who might be prone to eating non-food items like the container these come in, I'd just pop it out and into a dish for them, though it might not last as long since they could pick it up and chomp instead of just licking.

Both Koira and Pallo tried these. Koira tried the mint flavor, and Pallo tried the peanut butter. I didn't smell these things at all until I stuck my nose right down on top of them, which makes it a nice treat to give your dogs if you have a sensitive nose.
And the best news is that Dogsters sent me two cute collapsible bowls and two vouchers for a free product to give away to one of my awesome readers.
