My parents’ black lab used to love playing with and eating ice cubes. It was an easy treat to give her and she seemed to enjoy it quite a bit. I’m certain she would have loved a Kool Dogz Ice Treat. With the Kool Dogz Ice Treat Maker a dog owner can now make a huge ice block for his pooch with this six-piece ice making contraption.
Not only will it take up a gigantic amount of space in your freezer, but it also will take up a fair amount of space during the winter while waiting to be used in the dog days of summer. From the product description:
Each Kit contains a reusable bucket (with lid), bone-shaped stainless steel cap bar and 3 piece steel serving platform. The bucket included will make an ice block about 5″ tall and 7.5″ in diameter. When placed on the platform the top of the ice block can either be 7.5″ (without the extension post) or 14″ (with the extension) from the ground. You can freeze just about anything that your dog loves, but here are a few suggestions: kongs, mini steaks, chicken broth, etc.
Your dog may enjoy an ice treat now and then, but how much are you going to use this thing to justify its storage in your cupboards for at least six months out of the year? I have a feeling your dog will be just fine without a giant ice block to lick. And, even if you wanted to make your dog an ice block, couldn’t you just as easily use a bucket or a bowl you already own to mold the ice?
