Barney’s Biscuit Boxes: Advent Calendar for Dogs

It’s barely October and already we can find Christmas items in our favourite shops! For some it may be a little bit early to be tucking into mince pies and decking the halls, but it always helps to be prepared for the holiday season.

Those of us with dogs may be wondering what to get our four-legged pals for Christmas, and how we can celebrate the season with them. As the days draw in and the weather turns colder, it’s understandable that we look for ways to treat and comfort our pets through winter. It’s also an opportunity to think of dogs who aren’t as lucky as ours, who will spend their Christmas in shelters and rehoming centres, or even in puppy farms.

If you want to find a way to take care of the dogs in your homes, and those less fortunate, there is a way. Barney’s Biscuit Boxes are advent calendars for dogs, featuring human-grade treats from some top dog food brands, like Billy and Margot, Lovesniffys, Whimzees and more. Not only are the snacks free of salt, sugar, additives or preservatives, many of them contain actively healthful ingredients.

Not only will your dog love them, they raise funds for some really great causes. In fact you can select the rescue centre of your choice at checkout, so your favourite rehoming centre can benefit from your purchase. A second donation goes directly to the medical expenses of dogs who are rescued from puppy farms, as these dogs are often malnourished, poorly cared for and can carry parasites and infectious diseases as a result of the appalling environment. This means your money is going directly to dogs who need it most.

So if you’re looking for a way to treat your dog and contribute to great charities this Christmas, visit the website here!
