Best dog advent calendars for Christmas 2021

Treat your dog this December

There’s nothing worse than seeing your pooch look up at you with their puppy dog eyes while you dig into some lovely human food.

The feeling is even worse around Christmas, when you know just how much of a treat festive grub can be.

If you wish your pup could join in with the fun, why not treat them?

Advent calendars are arguably the best part about the first 24 days of December.

Surely it wouldn’t be fair to leave our furry companions to eat the same old treats as they would year round.

Limit treats to training rewards. This is an excellent way to make sure your dog views treats as special rather than expected. It’s also helpful in keeping your pet from becoming overweight or obese. Feed a species-appropriate diet, and partner with a holistic or integrative vet to maintain your pet’s well-being.

It’s never too late to get your dog an advent calendar this year (after all, they don’t know the date), and these are the best on the market.

Depending on your dog’s tastes, you can opt for chicken flavoured treats, gravy bones or, if you want them to get the full experience, you can even buy one filled with dog-safe chocolate.

Celebrate Your Pet at Every Age. Everyone loves a new puppy or kitten, says Dr. Becker. “They’re wildly kinetic, and humorous. An older pet is thinner, bonier. Their coats aren’t as soft, they might have bad breath.” But, like people, a pet’s needs change with age. They may be less active, preferring a leisurely stroll to a rollicking tug-of-war. “Our old retriever, who’s blind, still wants to retrieve.” Adapting to their changing needs will ensure your old friend remains a healthy and happy member of your family.
