Our latest Christmas hack is a pet advent calendar. Inspired by the fact that Baloo takes a daily supplement and the children are now allowed daily doses of chocolate. I wanted to find a safe and non toxic way for my fur child to join in the Christmas cheer.
For transparency this is not a paid AD but, I have previously been gifted the supplement contained in this hack. No other items are promotional.
What You’ll Need
I’ve gathered together a selection of vet approved treats as well as Baloo’s daily Antinol capsule. To give you some inspo, I’m going to list Baloo’s snack/treat allowances:
•Carrots: Baloo is allowed 2 a week.
•Dental Stick: Baloo has a Greenies dental chew every other day.
•1 small doggy biscuit per day.
•Chewy Treat Stick: 2x Orlando beefy chew per week
•We’ve also hidden a few chew toys in her advent pockets too (never leave dogs to play with these unattended though).
•Her daily supplement
•A hanging, fabric advent calendar ours is from the Middle of Lidl
How To Make A Pet Advent Calendar
Being careful not to pierce the blister packs we chopped the strip of supplement capsules up so each one could be placed in a pocket, but still packaged.
Next we popped in a carrot for every third day of the week and every second day of the week we added a dental chew.
For every day we added a small dog biscuit and then on alternate days to the carrots we put the beefy, doggy chew sticks.
We’ve made a video to show just how easy it was to do:
