It’s not just children (OK and adults) who enjoy the countdown to Christmas with an advent calendar. Our beloved pooches can join in the fun, with an advent calendar for dogs.
Who doesn’t love getting a treat every morning? Barney & Sandy get excited, sniff and paw the advent calendar, and, as we don’t have children, it makes us smile and gets us in the Christmas spirit too.
Four years ago, the choices for dog’s advent calendars was limited, but now, there seems to be plenty, from the healthier option through to dog-friendly chocolate ones!

Please always ensure there’s a bowl of fresh water available for your dog after feeding treats. Don’t feed too many chews and treats to your dog to avoid weight gain and adjust their regular meal portions accordingly.
