Can anyone recommend an advent calendar for a dog?

I know nothing about dogs but would like to send an advent calendar to my aunt this year, to let her know how much she is appreciated, even if we can’t see her much. She dotes on her little dog so I thought something for him might be nice too but I know nothing about dogs so don’t want to send something stupid, or bad for him. Any recommendations?

I got the lily's kitchen one for my dog for the past couple of years. She likes the treats and are healthier than the dog "chocolate" ones.

Another vote for Lily's Kitchen. I'll be getting it again this year.

Lilly's Kitchen here too. It's much more expensive than the Good Boy chocolate drop ones that are around £1.50 but it's really worth it.

Sorry to be a bore but I don’t really agree with advent calendars for dogs.
Surely they get confused when suddenly they don’t get a treat everyday any more when Christmas is over and you obv can’t explain to them!
Unless you use them in place of their usual regular training treats I suppose.
It is a good idea to get her something for her dog though if it means a lot to her

Thanks for the recommendations.
@Davidsparkle that’s a valid point. Any suggestions for a dog gift? I can’t emphasise enough how clueless I am about dogs.

Most dogs I know get a treat every day. My Jack Russell Terrier would go on strike if he didn't get a treat after his evening meal. And no, he is not overweight. Send your aunt the advent calender. Its a lovely idea.

I love spoiling my dog at Christmas. I'd much rather buy for my dig than most of my relatives.
