The holiday season is filled with joy for many different reasons—from shopping to Santa, Mariah Carey to mistletoe. But here at Daily Paws, we're convinced that one of the very best reasons we love the countdown to Christmas are the Advent calendars. There's nothing sweeter than waking up each morning to find a little piece of chocolate behind each door for the month of December. It's a nostalgic activity that makes the holiday season that much more fun.

These days, the Advent calendar selection has expanded from the standard candy from childhood to include wine, cheese, and even beer to mark each day of the countdown. Sounds great, right? Except these human-friendly options aren't great for our four-legged friends. In fact, when it comes to dogs, chocolate and alcohol are downright dangerous. Thankfully, our pups can join in on the fun with an Advent calendar filled with toys, treats or a combination of the two. 

Since our pets are part of our families, be sure to include them in the holiday family traditions with one of the calendars listed below and treat your dog to 24 joy-filled days.
