Cool and clever ideas... they definitely have to be an improvement on those "Frosty Paws" they sell in the frozen section of grocery stores. My dogs won't go near 'em!!

if you're feeling lavish towards your pet, you can always use broth (chicken, beef, etc) to make the base liquid instead of just water. 

as for carob chips, you can often find them for people at health food store (probably cheaper)

I work at a wildlife hospital, and we make ice cube treats like those for the opossums. We put pinkie mice in them, with the tails sticking out of the ice. The opossums go nuts over them.  Grin

Another one I do is freeze baby food in ice cube trays (liver, chicken, beef, etc).  I own a little doggie daycare and the littles just go nuts when I give them the frozen baby food!  Next time I am definately going to use chocolate molds!!!  I think I am going to fill the chocolate molds with the baby food, freeze in molds, package and leave in my clients' freezers - much more healthy than the Frosty Paws.  Thanks so much for the idea!!!  Here are some kong stuffing suggestions (this is where I got the idea of filling the kong w/chicken broth)

That's a really smart idea. My dog loves ice cubes! And I'd give him puppy ice cream, but he had surgery for stones so now he has to eat special food... but this would work well!!

Maise!! What kind of dog is that?  Is the one in your picture (under your name) the same one in the icecube pictures, only a puppy?
See, I ask because we took in a stray dog that looks exactly like that.  She was starved, beaten, scabby, but completely adorable.  The vet told me she was around 4 yrs old, maybe, and could be maybe an akita/chow mix.  She has that purple chow tongue and black snout... but she is like a walking barking teddy bear.  She has the best temperment towards people considering what her previous owners did to her. 
So, anyway, your dog is adorable...and looks just like my dog (her name is NuBert)  Cheesy Grin Cheesy
I wonder what my NuBert really is.... hmm.  Currently she's passed out on my bed... and snoring a little. ha  Wink

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Molly is a Chihuahua Terrier mix. Her dad was a chocolate Chihuahua and her mom was a Chihuahua Terrier mix too but looked more like a Cairn Terrier. Mollys brothers and sisters all looked like their mom, she's the only one with Chihuahua features. Everyone says she looks like a baby German Shepherd with her dark muzzle.
NuBert sounds cute. Do you have a picture you could post?

I made these for my puppy, Delia, and she LOVED them! Esp. in the hot summer sun- but these are, most definitely, an OUTDOOR treat  Wink Cheesy Thanks!

I found odd ice cube trays at IKEA and froze six inch long sticks of ice for our puppy.  They're too small to add much too, but she loves to be able to hold them to eat them.
