After a hard day on the trail, what could be better than some Ice Cream for your Trail Dog.  Give your buddy a healthy snack by following these recipes by Brandy Arnold of the Dogington Post

Who doesn’t love ice cream on a sunny day? Dogs generally find frozen treats irresistible. Because human ice creams can contain harmful ingredients and doggie ice creams are often pricy, why don’t you try to prepare homemade versions of these frozen delights to help Fido keep cool and happy!
