There's no way to know. And it would be pretty hard to find out, I'd think. Though dogs are fast eaters, I always noticed that they lick ice cream slowly. Maybe they do it slow to prevent brain freeze?

I am going to go with its possible, or actually its probable. Just because we can't tell if the dog is having a "brain freeze" doesn't mean it is effected by eating something cold. Dogs react differently to some stimuli then a human does.

What happens when we eat something cold is a nerve in our mouth sends a signal to our brain causing certain blood vessals to swell like which makes us feel the "brain freeze." It is more then likely the same thing happens to dogs.

But maybe next time you go to the vet you can ask, and then let us all know :)
