How do you recommend shipping dog treats that need refrigeration ?

by Tammy

Most recipes say will keep fresher in the refrigerator for 2 weeks and can freeze up to 4 months... and depending on the recipe will call for refrigeration.

The softer treats refrigeration and the harder treats do not have to be refrigerated, but I find there are lots more softer treat recipes available, and more fun to bake, that require extra attention for storage.

Give me heads up on your opinion with storage and shipping the proper way for safety and freshness.
Thank you!

Chef's Answer ~ Great question, especially since we're so close to a major gift giving season! :)

First, I want to make sure you read my article on how to ship dog cookies. There's lots of great tips and ideas there.

Second, and this isn't on the page above, is if you are extra concerned with the freshness of the treats, and keeping them cool, you can always ship the cookies in a lightweight foam container with frozen gel ice or frozen packs.

Keeping the treats refrigerated is a recommendation. It's to keep the treats as fresh as long as possible. I would recommend finding out how long it will take for your package to arrive to its destination before considering how to package it up.

If you still have questions, please let me know, I'd be happy to help.

Happy Dog Treat Baking (& Shipping)! :)
