A few weeks ago, I shared a picture of Mauja and Atka enjoying National Ice Cream day with a Pup Cup from Dairy Queen. It was then that I was introduced to the Doggie Cone.
A.K.A. the greatest improvement on frozen treats.
Normally when I make frozen treats, I use our adorable little paw print tray for bite sized treats. It makes tasty snacks, but certainly nothing long-lasting. That’s where the Doggie Cone comes in.
The Doggie Cone is an extremely durable, mess-free way to create and serve frozen dog treats. It is made from food-safe ABS and Polypropylene to allow for a safe and sturdy cone. There are also two different fill-lines so you can decide if you want to make a small or large treat.
The fluffies say bigger is better.
A few other notable characteristics:
- replaceable support pole
- ribbed design for licking enjoyment
- ridged on top for freezing stability
- low profile design to prevent tipping
- concave design to capture two hours of melt at room temperature
- rubber feet to minimize sliding
I was sold on the Doggie Cone before it even showed up on our doorstep. I told Nick, “if this thing works, it is going to be the most amazing product for frozen treats”.
You can fill your Doggie Cone to suit your dog’s preferences – add water, broth, fruit, veggies… whatever your dog typically enjoys! I decided to use the recipe for The Honest Kitchen treats I made recently and just added a little more liquid. I wanted it to be a thinner consistency than the original recipe. Assembling your Doggie Cone is as easy as one, two, three.
- Twist the support pole into the base.
- Fill the clear top with your treat of choice.
- Put the base on the top and freeze!
I filled Mauja and Atka’s cones to the top and they were in fluffy paradise. It took them almost an hour to lick and chew their way through their treats. The only mess that occurred was from the pieces of meat I froze in the cone. As they chewed, sometimes the meat fell off the cone, but it was promptly eaten! Even with treat consumption taking an hour, we didn’t experience any liquid mess.
Note: It does say on the website that the Doggie Cone is typically not recommended for dogs over 100 pounds. Obviously Mauja and Atka are well over that weight limit. The reason is because giant breeds can pick up the cone with their extra large mouths. This could tip the cone and compromise the design. However, if your dog isn’t an aggressive chewer you shouldn’t have a problem. The fluffies were content to relax and lick and chew away.
