Keeping your dog hydrated during the summer months is key. But sometimes they don’t drink as much as they should. We think they will be singing a different tune once they try these fruit infused waters.

Sounds fancy, but it is really simple as well as being delicious and healthy! These fruity pops of color are super easy to whip up can be a refreshing beverage that both you and your dog can enjoy together.

Here are a couple of our favorite recipes to try this summer:

Dog-friendly-fruit-infused-water

  Cucumber + Blackberry + Mint

  • Fill your pitcher with filtered water
  • Add a handful of washed organic blackberries
  • Wash and chop a small cucumber (or half of a large one) into coin shaped disks and add them to your pitcher.
  • Add 5+ mint leaves
  • Let set for about an hour in order to let the fruit infuse its goodness into your water.
  • When serving to your dog, fill their water bowl with just the infused water. We don’t want them to choke while drinking. If you would like to share a little bit of fruit, make sure to place the fruit in a separate bowl. Just enough to feel refreshed.
  • When serving yourself, feel free to get your fruit on!

Fruit-Waters-to-share-with-dogs

Blueberry + Strawberry

  • Fill your pitcher with filtered water
  • Add a handful of washed organic blueberries
  • Add a handful of washed organic strawberry halves (stems & leaves removed)
  • Let set for about an hour in order to let the fruit infuse its goodness into your water.
  • When serving to your dog, fill their water bowl with just the infused water. We don’t want them to choke while drinking. If you would like to share a little bit of fruit, make sure to place the fruit in a separate bowl. Just enough to feel refreshed.
  • When serving yourself, feel free to get your fruit on!

Enjoy!
