Make Mine a Double Scoop!
Temperatures rise, the days are longer and the smell of BBQs waft through the blissful air.
As the peak of the sun hits, many of us run to our freezers to grab a taste of something creamy, cooling and beyond refreshing. That’s right – Ice Cream.
From 99’s to Cornish Cream, here in Cornwall we love everything about ice cream. With a plethora of flavours on offer, ice cream is treat like no other. So as we stock up our freezers with a mass array of frozen treats, we look upon what we can give our pets to stay just as refreshed as us.
Here at the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we consider ourselves innovators in the dog food market. Stocking treats that showcase the best of British produce, our newest product is one that will wow in the summer sun.
Ice-Cream for dogs!
Yes. That’s right. We said it. Ice Cream for dogs. Made by the brilliant brains of Doggy Doggy Yum Yum (potentially the best brand name on the market), the team have created a delicious ice cream just for your dog to enjoy in the scrumptious summer sunshine!
Created by a family of ice-cream makers, Doggy Doggy Yum Yum is a family owned company based in Bridport, Dorset. Their founder Annie Hanbury is a Bologna-trained professional ice cream maker, so knows a little bit of what makes goes into our favourite frozen treats that makes them gloriously gorgeous.
Annie, a passionate dog lover, embarked on the journey after witnessing so many of her customers buying her ice-cream for their pooches. After much research and experimentation (and some very happy mutts eating many samples), she came up with their first flavour: Peanut Butter and Banana.
The company’s ethos embodies their love for ingredients and pet welfare – just because something is made for dogs doesn’t mean there should be a compromise on ingredients. Therefore, every single one of their ingredients is organic and carefully chosen. They believe in the flavour of their ice cream so much that they even try it themselves!
Inside every 125ml tub of pawfect peanut butter and banana ice cream is a range of incredible ingredients that create this dogtastically delicious frozen treat. With doggy bellies vulnerable to lactose in milk, every tub of Doggy Doggy Yum Yum ice cream with made with 100% live coconut yogurt. Containing no artificial flavours or refined sugars, it is suitable even for vegetarian and vegan doggies.
Featuring coconut yogurt, banana and peanut butter, this delightfully delicious summer treat is a fantastic reward for your pet on a hot summer’s day. But what makes this ice cream so incredibly innovative is the thought process that has gone into the selection of ingredients featured in every tub. With banana, peanut butter and coconut all having a range of health benefits for our four-legged friends, here’s why Doggy Doggy Yum Yum is not only delicious but nutritionally beneficial too:
- Live coconut yoghurt contains live cultures which are good for the gut; it contains vitamin C, magnesium, potassium and iron. It is also known to have a range of ‘anti-inflammatory properties that make it a good supplement for dogs affected by arthritis, hotspots or flea allergies’. It also boosts the immune system.
- Bananas contain potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C. They are high in fibre which is good for gastrointestinal problems. They also have a lot of magnesium which is good for bone growth.

With a 100% compostable tub, all-natural and wholesome ingredients, and even a spoon ready to eat, it is no wonder we are proud to become a stockist of this brilliant and beautiful brand.
