5 Reasons You Should Get An Advent Calendar For Your Pet

If you listen closely, you might be able to make out the sound of sleigh bells jingling in the distance, which can only mean one thing: the festive season is just around the corner! Here at Yappy, we believe that pets deserve to join in the festivities just as much as everyone else. So, this year, why not make it pawticularly special for your pooch, and let them join in the countdown to the most wonderful time of the year? Allow us to introduce our dog and cat advent calendars!

The ultimate Christmas gift this season for your furry friend, an advent calendar is a simple gift that keeps on giving. Read on to see why they are a furbulous gift and sure to make you very pawpular with your cat or dog.

1. Deck the Halls

As December arrives, we know that one of the best parts of the Christmas period is decking the halls with all your favorite decorations. Lights, tinsel and baubles transform our homes into a winter wonderland, and when it comes to advent calendars, our range of designs are no exception.

Jolly and festive, each advent calendar has its own unique design featuring your favorite four-legged friend, bringing a little sprinkling of Christmas magic to each day. After filling each pocket with your cat or dog’s favorite treats, there’s no doubt that your pet will be paw-sitively ecstatic every day!

2. Sustainable

Christmas can often be a wasteful time of year, from plastic and manufacturing, to landfill increase, it has an impact on the environment. So it’s important to be mindful of how we affect the world around us while still enjoying Christmas to the very fullest.

To help combat our contribution to this wastage, our advent calendars are reusable instead of disposable, meaning that these pawsome dog and cat advent calendars can be used year after year, becoming a new and sustainable tradition in your household.

3. Pet Friendly

We know the struggle when it comes to cats and dogs at Christmas. More often than not, our pets see decorations as twinkly playthings we hung up just for them. It is because of this that flimsy, fragile ornaments are out, and sturdy decorations are well and truly in.  

Made from strong canvas material, our Yappy advent calendars are designed to be durable, and the high-quality fabric makes them nice and sturdy for continual use year after year. Plus, their hanging design allows them to keep looking great while being kept safely out of reach of any pesky paws.

If you want to bring even more puppy or kitty cuteness to your Christmas decorations, our personalized dog baubles and cat baubles are a fantastic addition to your tree this year, and their sleek and hard-wearing appearance makes them reusable year and year, what more could you ask for at Christmas?

4. Tasty Treats

If you can’t spoil your cat or dog at Christmas, then when can you? Your pet will be your biggest fan after filling their advent calendar with all their favorite treats! An advent calendar for dogs is the perfect excuse to slip your pup a few extra treats this Christmas. Counting down the sleeps ‘till Christmas has never been better than enjoying it with your four-legged friend.
