Dogs Need Ice Cream, Too

A frozen treat truck with snacks designed especially for dogs is coming to area dog parks for the next two weekends.

There have been excessive heat warnings in the area off and on all summer, and if you're struggling in the heat, imagine how hot our furry best friends are!

That's why this weekend and next, the ice cream man is dishing out something pups can wag their tails at -- doggy ice cream!

Best Friends Pet Care is a company that provides boarding, camp, grooming and training across six pet centers in New Jersey (obviously, they love dogs!). And lucky for our four-legged friends, they're traveling the area with a "treat truck” giving out free ice cream and cookies to dogs playing at local dog parks.

The treat truck has been traveling down the east coast since the start of the summer.

Check out this schedule to see if any treats are coming your way!
