KONG’s New Easy Freeze Treat Kits and Mixes Keep Dogs Cool

GOLDEN, Colo., April 3, 2012 (For Immediate Release) – Spring weather has arrived, and along with it comes reminders that the dog days of summer are not far behind.  This year, it will be easier than ever to help dogs keep their cool during the hot days ahead with KONG’s new Easy Freeze Treats, incredibly tasty frozen KONG-shaped dog treats that dog owners make themselves!

When the weather gets warm, it’s not uncommon for dog owners to give their panting pooches an ice cube, a little bit of ice cream (not chocolate, of course!) or a store-bought frozen dog treat to help them cool down.  But with the Easy Freeze kit and treat mixes, it’s so much faster and easier to make them at home, and the Easy Freeze treats are a lot tastier than a plain ice cube and better for a dog than ice cream.  Plus, the Easy Freeze mix is all natural and free of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives that are common in many pre-made frozen dog treats, so dog owners can be certain that they are giving their canine charges something healthy and delicious to help even the hottest hound beat the heat.

The Easy Freeze kit’s bone-shaped freezer tray comes in two options – Medium/Large, which makes 12 mid-sized KONG-shaped treats, and X-Large, which makes six larger treats.  Both sizes come with three bags of treat mix so dogs can start chilling out as soon as the treats freeze.  The treats couldn’t be easier to make – just combine one bag of treat mix with water, stir, pour into the freezer tray and pop into the freezer.  It’s that easy!  With mouthwateringly irresistible flavors such as Chicken Soup, White Cheddar Cheese, Juicy Apple and Sweet Potato & Maple, staying cool has never tasted so good!

Both the Medium/Large and X-Large Easy Freeze kits have an MSRP of $11.99.  The Easy Freeze treat mixes have four easy-to-mix packets per box with an MSRP of $6.99.  They are available online and at pet retailers nationwide.
