With temperatures set to soar to a whopping 30C this week, many of us will not only be looking for ways to keep ourselves cool, but also our pups. From sunscreen and paddling pools to cold treats and bowls of fresh water, it’s important to ensure our dogs stay cool, happy and healthy throughout the heatwave.
Thankfully, budget supermarket Aldi has come to the rescue. First with its sell-out dog sunshade bed and now, with the launch of its brand-new pup-friendly ice cream – perfect for four-legged friends that are prone to drooling at your Cornetto.
Hitting shelves this week (spookily on cue for the mercury shooting up), Aldi’s beechdean doggy ice cream comes in two doggy-tempting flavours and costs just £2.99 for a pack of four (110ml each).
You (and your pooch) will be able to choose from either pea and vanilla or apple and carrot, with each cold treat being 100 per cent plant based and made with real fruit and vegetables.
If these nutritious and cooling snacks are just what your pooch needs for the heatwave and beyond, here’s everything you need to know – including when and where your pup can get its paws on a pack.
Aldi beechdean doggy ice cream: £2.99, Aldi.co.uk – in store from 16 June
With barbecue season on the way, let your dog join in the fun with its own cold treat to help cool them down in the warm weather.
Available in either pea and vanilla or apple and carrot flavours, Aldi’s new doggy ice cream will help cool them down and it is also a nutritious snack, thanks to being made with real vegetables and fruits.
Available in-store only from 16 June, Aldi is the first UK supermarket to launch its own dog-friendly ice cream – and at such a competitive price, we predict a sell-out, just like its sunshade bed. See you in the pets aisle.
