While you and your family may enjoy the countdown to the festivities, why not consider Christmas advent calendars for dogs so they can look forward to the arrival of Santa Paws too?
And since advent calendars for humans have expanded so we don’t just have chocolate choices, for example, we can enjoy wine and beauty products, so the ranges for pet dogs have also expanded.
There’s no doubt that our four-legged friends deserve a treat, or even 24!
So, here the Christmas.co.uk team look at some of the best Christmas advent calendars for dogs that are currently available.
Enjoy a doggy advent calendar countdown
One of the tastiest Christmas advent calendars for dogs we’ve come across is this offering from Barney’s Biscuit Boxes.
Their advent calendar has returned this year and it contains a range of the firm’s favourite dog treats.
There are 50% more treats in this year’s dog advent calendar so there’s one treat for every day of the Christmas countdown.
The advent contains standard bags of biscuits across 21 days, and there are meat jerky treats for the other three days.
That means doggies will get 21 boxes with three medium sized biscuits, which are easy to break in half and are based on the flavours that Barney’s produce throughout the year.
Your favourite pooch will get to enjoy apple and cheese, banana and honey, chicken liver, peanut butter, along with pear and venison.
The pet food manufacturer has also developed with their dog nutritionist a further 19 recipes using buffalo, lamb, venison, chicken and beef.
The jerky treats in the advent calendar are made from organic beef and they are vacuum packed to maintain freshness.
All of the biscuits from Barney’s include vegetables and fresh fruit and are made with human-grade ingredients.
This is a real treat for the pooch in your life.
Good Boy meaty treats advent calendar
Another advent calendar for dogs that caught our eye, is this offering from Good Boy.
With dog safe chocolate, every window hides a lovely treat.
The Good Boy Christmas meaty dog treats advent calendar is filled with super scrummy, meaty dog treats to ensure your dog’s tail will be wagging every day!
These festive favourites will be a great way to get your pooch involved in the festive build-up so you can both count down to the big day!
At Good Boy, the aim is to ensure that you and your furry pal are happy, so the calendar contains the tastiest treats and the coolest toys and accessories.
Making your dog’s tail wag as you open another advent window is what they want you to enjoy.
The Good Boy Christmas meaty dog treats advent calendar costs £5 and is available from a range of outlets, including Tesco and Morrisons.
Premio advent calendar for dogs
One of the issues for advent calendars for pooches is for the quality of the treats they contain – but that’s not the issue with Premio.
That’s because they offer high quality treats for your pooch and have a strong reputation for doing so.
This year’s offering sees these treats being delivered in various forms and flavours and there are eight different snacks to enjoy behind the 24 doors.
They range from star-shaped small pieces of lamb to chicken snacks.
There’s no doubt this is a quality offering, and each snack weighs in at 8g and has no added sugar – which is good because we need to watch our favourite woofer’s waistline during the festivities.

The Christmas.co.uk team also enjoyed this reusable dog advent calendar from Stag Design.
The firm makes specific breed calendars too for those who want to really personalise their festive pet advent calendar with breeds including cocker spaniel and Labrador.
