Default Dog Treat Advent Calendar

So a few years ago I bought this cardboard dog treat advent calendar & PB was so cute it didn't take her too long to figure it out. She'd wake up & run right over to it for her daily treat. I hadn't been able to find one for years so I made one last year out of mini stockings we can put treats in. We're at Day 2, any bets how long it will stay up?Dog Treat Advent Calendar-imageuploadedbypg-free1354483202.549921.jpg

That looks great! They are so smart they just love to act dumb

Bella has her own advent calendar, the kids said she couldn't be left out! It was from pets at home (uk) and has doggy chocs behind the doors

That is a great idea! I think I will dig out an old one we used when the kids were younger!

Well she sat in front of it for 30 minutes straight last night, staring me down, but it is still hanging nicely on the hooks. Finally gave up & went to bed.

This morning she raced right on over to it, sat, layed down, & rolled over. "C'mon lady what do I have to do to get one of those?!!"

You're lucky she's so patient, Bella would sit and bark and whine until she got what she wanted, or find a way to completely trash the lot when we're out.

Bella sounds like a Gandy clone.

I found one of the cardboard ones too in a big pet store (France) and Harvey is loving it! Especially since he is having a bit of leg problem I think it cheers him up a bit!
