Best 24 Christmas Countdown Dog Advent Calendar Ideas

We love incorporating our dog into holiday traditions and that includes a dog advent calendar.  Fortunately, there’s a countdown to Christmas advent calendar for just about everyone in the family, and that includes dogs. 

In the past few years, I’m all about shopping mostly on my computer. I am not fond of long lines, fighting crowds, looking for a parking space, and leaving my dog behind. So if you’re in the market for a dog advent calendar, we scoured the Internet for 24 of our favorites. Your pooch deserves to countdown to the holiday with you, so here are our selections for festive fun.
