Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)

Dan Churchill — executive chef at Nolita’s Australian-inspired, impact-driven cafe Charley St and the host of The Epic Table, a star-studded podcast devoted to discussing environmentalism in cooking — is known for taking a laid-back, entertaining approach to healthy eating. Having such a master chef (literally, he was on MasterChef Australia) in the family is pretty fortunate, even for pets. Churchill’s lucky dog, Mav, doesn’t need to beg for table scraps because her dad whips up delicious treats specially for her.

Recently, the eco-conscious chef shared the super simple recipe for his Epic Homemade Dog Treats, packed with nutritious dates, oats, and peanut butter. They were a hit with The Wildest team’s pups, so we asked Churchill for a new summer treat suggestion to keep our pets cool this summer. And he understood the assignment — read on for a mouthwatering Frozen Blueberry Dog Treat recipe.
