A Note From Jenna:

I met Simba’s Barkery, a Dallas Texas based dog bakery, in February at the dog event “Krewe of Barkus” in downtown McKinney. I was so impressed with their treats (my dogs LOVE Simba’s pupcakes!) and we share the same mission to also help dog rescues in our businesses. Naturally Simba’s Barkery is now my go-to dog bakery for treats and doggy cakes!  Below they have created a special recipe you can share with your dog to celebrate National Strawberry Sundae Day. How fun is that!! I know your dogs will love it!

A Berry Sweet Day

The dog days of summer have begun. The pawsitive side – when I think of heat, I think of ice cream! Lucky for us July 7th is National Strawberry Sundae Day. So why not share this amazing holiday with your pup. After all, they deserve a fun way to cool off as well. Today, I will share with you how to turn that Strawberry Pupsicle into a Pawberry Sundae.

Pawberry Sundae

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops strawberry pupsicle
  • 1 blueberry pupcake
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Handful of dog biscuits – I used peanut butter flavored

Instructions

Rinse the blueberries and place them on a paper napkin to dry. Crumble the pupcake using your hands into small pieces. Place dog biscuits in a clean plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin.

To assemble the sundae, in a dog bowl, place the two scoops of strawberry pupsicle. Add the pupcake crumble on top. Add blueberries and sprinkle with the dog biscuits. You can add any other dog-friendly toppings you wish. Apples, bananas, carob chips, don’t be afraid to get creative!

Let your dog take a lick immediately. Watch out for those puppy eyes and #tongueouttuesday picture moment!

For my recipe, I used all treats from Simba’s Barkery.

Just a tip of caution, we may all be tempted to share our ice cream cone with our four-legged pals. And while human ice cream is not entirely poisonous for dogs, it should be avoided. Most dogs are lactose intolerant and milk based ice cream can cause indigestion and an upset stomach. Furthermore, the added sugars in human ice cream has negative effects on the dog as well. It can cause a sugar high which includes hyper activity, lack of concentration and eventually obesity, diabetes and dental issues. To stay on the safe side, please buy dog-safe all-natural ice cream.

My name is Nikita Hemani and I am the owner of Simba’s Barkery, an all-natural, gourmet dog bakery. The idea of Simba’s Barkery began in 2012 when I started volunteering with a local dog rescue as a foster parent. Since then I started baking treats for all my dogs at home.

At Simba’s Barkery we create treats that are carefully crafted from natural and quality ingredients. The treats are baked fresh every day with human-grade ingredients and the selection changes seasonally. Each treat then goes through an official tasting and approval by the The Barkery’s personal Labrador taster, Simba. For more information, you can follow Simba’s Barkery on Facebook or Instagram
