Very important! One thing to keep in mind, if your dog is lactose intolerant, or allergic to peanuts in any way, please reconsider the below recipes or at least consult with your veterinarian first BEFORE trying them out on your GSD.
Also, it is really important to remember to only give your dog minimal amounts of extra treats at any time! With all that in mind, here are the 4 Dog Ice Cream recipes I promised you before - in no particular order. I hope you and your German Shepherds both enjoy these new new cool tasty treats. Bone appetit!
2 cups low salt beef or chicken broth
2/3 cup water
2 or 3 ice cube trays
Small rawhide sticks
Mix water with beef or chicken broth and pour into ice cube trays. Place in freezer and serve cold. Add a rawhide stick halfway through the freezing. This recipe is quick, easy, and fun. It's probably best to serve this dish outside.
2 cups vanilla yogurt (or plain low-fat)
2 tablespoons honey
Mix ingredients and freeze in ice cube tray. Voila...sweet, cool bite-size treats for your pooch!
4 cups rice milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

To serve, remove paper liner and place treat in dog or cat bowl.
For a double treat, place a miniature dog biscuit in the filled muffin tin before freezing.
32 oz. plain yogurt

It’s true dairy products aren’t good for dogs, but yogurt contains much less lactase than regular milk and the live cultures are great for your dog’s digestive system. This dog ice cream recipe is delicious and good for your pet!
1. Mix all these ingredients in your blender, then dump into ice cube trays, paper cups, or even a kong toy to freeze and serve.
2. If you want to go all out for your mutt you can freeze these homemade frosty paws just like you would homemade ice cream. A salt-less automatic ice cream maker makes this as easy as using any other appliance in your home and the frosty paws will be ready to serve in 10 minutes.
For the ultimate treat, appropriate for desert at a doggy birthday party, follow steps one and two, then take the mostly frozen dog ice cream product of number two and spread it 1” to 1½” thick on wax paper. Freeze for five minutes and then remove dog ice cream from freezer. Next, use a paw shaped cookie cutter to cut a paw shaped “frosty paws”, remove ice cream around edges, and return paw shapes to the freezer to freeze solid.
NOTE: This can also be made with baby meat instead of the fruit and peanut butter.
