It’s Time to Treat Your Furry Friend to a Pet Advent Calendar This Christmas

Advent calendars have been providing us with Christmas fun for over 100 years. Advent calendars for pets, however, are a more recent innovation.

Dog and cat advent calendars have become increasingly popular, with new variations emerging each year.

Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and even rabbits all get to join in the festive fun with their own special ‘small pets’ calendar.

Christmas is a time for family and our pets are integral to the family unit. So while you treat yourselves this year, treat your furry friends too.
