Dog Advent Calendar Ideas for This Holiday Season

The holiday season is upon us. It is officially time to break out the tinsel, wreaths, and Christmas music. Give your dog a taste of fun every day of the holiday season with a dog advent calendar. An advent calendar is a collection of items hidden behind flaps in a box or tray. There is one for each day of December leading up to Christmas. 

They are traditionally a fun family activity to amp up the anticipation for the big event. Now you can have the same fun with your fur baby as well. Whether you choose store-bought or homemade, dog advent calendars are a great way to bring joy to the season.
