The Best Advent Calendars for Dogs

Christmas Advent Calendars have become so much more than just cheap chocolate. But it shouldn’t just be humans who get in on the act – your dog needs to have a window to open on the lead up to the big day, too.

So, when you’re opening your gin, beauty, coffee or cheese advent calendar every morning, remember you also have one or two more windows to open as well.

Below are the best advent calendars for dogs on the market at the moment, whether you’re after something handmade which can be used year after year, or which contains a treat they have never had before.

    BEST PERSONALISED

    This advent calendar is for those pooches who are well and truly spoilt.

    There are the full 25 drawers, and it is personalised with their name so there is no confusion over who it belongs to. As a bonus, one of the drawers is filled with 3 personalised bones, baked especially for them with their name on, to enjoy on Christmas Day!

    They include dog-friendly organic peanut butter and cinnamon for a festive twist, so are super tasty and healthy.

    With natural oven-baked treats for any dogs aged 4 months and over, this calendar is perfect for anyone who is a bit wary of the quality of human advent calendars and wants to be extra careful.

    It features their bedtime biscuits, training treats and Rise and Shines, three of the best selling products in the Lily’s Kitchen range. There is a full breakdown of all of the ingredients involved, and the ingredients are all of the best quality.

    Good Boy is a brand known for their quality on a budget, and this advent calendar is cheap but cheerful.

    Perfect if you want to give your dog a treat but feel that spending any more is a little ridiculous. It is dog-friendly chocolate inside, which is good if they know that it is chocolate in yours too and they will settle for no less than having what you’re having.

    This wooden tree is pet safe (in case they get through cardboard boxes every single year and end up ruining their daily Christmas advent treat), and there is a bone attached to each of its daily loops.

    It is suitable for dogs over the age of 6 months, and could easily be reused year after year if you want to cut back on waste and don’t mind doing a bit of DIY when it comes to attaching your own treats.

    All of these treats are made from carob, packed with vitamins B and B2 and then sprinkled with hearty oats, before being baked with extra crunch for healthy teeth and gums.

    You can personalise it with their name, and the bone shape will ensure that you (and they) know it is theirs. The carob means it is something a bit different to the usual biscuits or training treats included, too.

    This box will only see them through the 12 days of Christmas as opposed to the 24/25 which other advent calendars offer, but with good reason – what you get blows ordinary treats out of the water.

    You get 12 numbered doggy gifts, one for each of the 12 days of Christmas. There are treats and a super fun rope dog toy. The treats are a cod wreath, 2x Christmas bites, 2 x Fish fingers and 3 x Mr Fisher’s, which beats tiny bite-sized training treats any day of the week.

    BEST BISCUIT

    Fussy about the biscuits included in advent calendars, gift boxes and other selection boxes? This wreath includes Bonios, so you can’t go wrong and any dog will love them. Or, why not pick Denta Stix if that is more their cup of tea?

    It is a great advent calendar for anyone who doesn’t want waste cardboard and plastic and looks perfectly festive so you can hang it up on the mantelpiece. It can also be used year after year by just adding your own bones, so is a good investment, and it is personalised with their name.

    24 numbered felt windows and the option to personalise with a name up to 12 characters, this is a great ‘forever’ advent calendar which can be used year after year, just like the stockings for the kids.

    You use your own treats in this one, which is perfect if your dog suffers from a sensitive tummy or you just want to control what they eat. It can be hung up on display, and will look lovely with everything else.

    Your dog can’t be left out when it comes to opening up the daily advent window. This calendar is beautiful enough to have on display, even when all of the treats have gone!

    It can be refilled every year, and all of the numbers are scattered about so you can hunt for today’s bone. The baked biscuits have natural ingredients and are the closest thing to a dog-safe chocolate biscuit, and next year you can then choose to put your own treats in there.

    Personalisation comes in the form of a white ceramic bone which hangs from the calendar, and which can then be used as a Christmas tree decoration.

    These are natural treats, made from 100% pure chicken hearts and duck necks, pure lamb lung and beef liver or pure salmon fillet. The kids definitely won’t want to get theirs mixed up…

    But, it is a recipe dogs will love. They are freeze-dried, retaining all their great flavour and vital nutrients. Great as a reward or daily treat, and perfect for wolf dog breeds such as German Shepherds, Huskies, and Malamutes.
