Frozen English Bulldog Treat Recipes 

Frozen treats are quick and easy to prepare, especially if you whip them up in the evening and let them freeze overnight. They are also an ideal way to help your dog cool down after a jaunt or bout of exercise. These two recipes come from Cesar’s Way and Bullwrinkle, respectively.

Baked English Bulldog Treat Recipes 

Baking your own dog treats is an extra-special way to say I love you. It also gives you a chance to have a bit of personalized fun by choosing cookie cutters in dog-happy shapes, like bones, squirrels, mailmen, cats or fire hydrants. Rub a bit of flour on the cookie cutters, and your rolling pin, to prevent dough from sticking. These two baking recipes are from Cesar’s Way and Food.com.

Advice for Treats: Make sure you pay attention to your dog’s reaction to any treats you make to ensure he’s not consuming an ingredient that causes him distress. You can also substitute ingredients if any of the recipes contain items your dog shouldn’t have, such as whole wheat flour. The frozen treats should remain frozen until serving, and you can freeze the baked treats in an airtight container to make them last for up to six months. Simply thaw for 10 to 20 minutes before serving.
