2. Best Dog Treat Variety Advent Calendar


Scrumbles Dog Advent Calendar

The first advent calendar to feature is from Scrumbles, the natural pet food company. Their advent calendar is packed full of healthy natural dog treats.

Behind each window there are 2–3 healthy treats suitable for dogs and puppies from 8 weeks.

We particularly love this Advent Calendar because Scrumbles have included 3 different types of treat -

️ Gnashers Dental Bones

️ Nibbles Calming Treats

️ Chicken Nibbles

All their treats all full of healthy ingredients with no added sugars or salts, handmade and gently baked plus they also come with added probiotics & prebiotics to keep your furry friend's tum feeling festive.

So a Christmas treat for your pup that not only looks beautifully festive but is super healthy and helps a good cause. Made right here in the UK, this Advent Calendar definitely gets the paw prints of approval.

4. Best Festive Dog Treats


Forthglade Turkey & Cranberry dog treats

If you are looking for great value Christmas treats, take a look at Forthglade's Turkey and Cranberry Soft Bites.

Forthglade already offer a wide selection of soft-baked treats from Calming, Fresh Breath and Rewards to more traditional flavours like lamb, salmon and duck.

Back by popular demand, their limited edition Christmas Soft Bites are softer, semi-moist training treats, offering a change to the usual crunchy, biscuit style dog treat.

Slightly larger treats than the Pooch & Mutt featured next in the review, cleverly each treat has a central groove to help you break it into two pieces so those treats can last even longer.

Devon-based Forthglade have a long standing partnership with several charities around the UK including - Veterans with Dogs, Dogs on the Street, National Trust and the South West Coastal Path Association.

5. Best Natural Treat Box

Fetch Club

Fetch Club Natural Treat Box for dogs

Looking for something great value and highly nutritious ?

Fetch Club, a small homegrown company, offer an extensive range of natural and highly nutritious dog treats all sourced right here in the UK. Their hand-picked Dog Treat Boxes make the ideal festive gift.

Natural dog treats are a great option. Not only are they a healthier alternative for our dogs but they taste better too. As they're dried, they have the benefit of being convenient with a long shelf life, without compromising on the health benefits.

Testing the Fetch Club Shop selection of natural dog treats

Fetch Club offer a range of three different sized boxes - the Mini, Midi and Maxi, all with a selection of natural dog treats. Ultimately, you have the benefit of trying lots of different types of treats and better still, they work out great value when compared to buying the individual products (30% saving on single packs when bought as a mixed box).

New to their range are Treat Boxes for Puppies which include a variety of protein sources suitable for puppies over 12 weeks old.

6. Cheese Fondue Dental Sticks

Pooch & Mutt

Pooch & Mutt Cheese Fondue Dental Sticks for dogs

A second selection from the Pooch & Mutt Christmas range. Their pack of 7 'Ski-sonal' Cheese Fondue Dental Sticks will not only taste great yummy, but they're a great way to improve oral hygiene.

Pooch & Mutt already offer a range of Calming, Superfood and Peanut Butter Dental Sticks which are great at removing plaque and tartar build up whilst keeping your pup occupied and mentally stimulated.

The unique star shapes allow the teeth to grip easily and get into the smaller spaces between your dogs teeth.

In testing, we found the super chunky, star shaped chews were at the larger end of the scale, so you could simply break them in half for smaller breeds.

We think that when Christmas gets just a little bit too hectic, your dog will thank you for a dental stick and some peace and quiet.

7. Christmas Dog Drink

Furr Boost

Furr Boost dog hydration drink Christmas recipe

Everyone knows that water is the smartest drink out there, but we are all increasingly looking at drinks that can not only hydrate but boost our dog's wellbeing and immune system.

Let's face it, many dog lovers are concerned about their dog's water intake and hydration levels.

UK company Furr Boost, offer a nutritious and functional dog drink which does a lot more than simply quench your dog's thirst.

Admittedly, it's still water which is essential for keeping your dog hydrated and refreshed, but the addition of meat, fruit, vegetables, vitamins and oils take this dog drink to the next level.

Better still, the aroma of the added ingredients, is far more tempting than plain water.

Available in a range of flavours, their NEW Limited Edition Christmas recipe is made with all-natural ingredients. The Turkey, Parsnip and Cranberry hydrating smoothie is the pawfect gravy topper for your fur baby's Christmas dinner.
