- To store: Use Zip Lock bags for a tight seal or use some Tupperware, Rubber Maid or any tight sealing container. Sealed and stored properly these will keep in the freezer for 2 months, but they will never last that long because your pups will have them gone in no time.
Please note: You can replace the strawberries with watermelon, blueberries, mango or pumpkin. NEVER USE GRAPES. You can even add some peanut butter.
