Christmas Advent Calendars & Limited-Edition Holiday Treats For Dogs
Boy, let me tell you, my dog has it so much better than my cats when it comes to holiday goodies.
I just finished up this very same guide, except for kitties, over on our sister site- CatVills.
The selections aren’t even half as robust for my felines as for puppers.
I actually struggled to stop myself from going overboard with this list!
I narrowed it down to just my top 15 favorites (although I’ll add dog advent calendars as they become available, since those were harder to find).
I’m sharing my top 6 picks that are also available on Amazon for you on the table below.
Why 6? Well, that’s how many fit on the table! 😀 Check them out, then read on for the full list.
1. Zuke’s Mini Naturals Holiday Trees Turkey & Cranberry Recipe Dog Treats
Freya LOVES Zuke’s training treats, so she’ll definitely find their holiday recipe in her stocking from Santa!
They are just the right size to put in her favorite puzzle game that we play together every night.
I love that they’re made in the USA with high-quality ingredients.
2.Blue Buffalo Holiday Santa Snacks Oatmeal & Cinnamon Crunchy Dog Treats
I’ve been buying Blue’s Santa Snacks for my dogs for years!
Freya doesn’t really love crunchy snacks as much as my other dogs did, but she enjoys them as a seasonal treat.
While they’re obviously not grain-free, they don’t have any by-product meats in them.
No corn, wheat, or other junk fillers, either!
- 'TIS THE SEASON FOR DELICIOUS DOG TREATS: BLUE Santa Snacks are healthy dog treats made with high-quality ingredients including whole grains and cinnamon
- HOLIDAY CRUNCH TIME: Oven-baked dog biscuits with a satisfying crunch make perfect stocking stuffers
- NO CHICKEN (OR POULTRY) BY-PRODUCT MEALS: Plus NO corn wheat, soy, artificial flavors or preservatives
- GRAB OUR SANTA SNACKS SOON: Like melting snow these limited-time-only dog treats disappear fast
- Contains one (1) 11-oz bag of Blue Buffalo Santa Snacks Crunchy Dog Treat Biscuits Oatmeal & Cinnamon Treats
3.Goody Box Holiday Toys, Treats & Apparel
How cute is this Goody Box for dogs?
It’s a Chewy exclusive, and the one pictured is for small & medium breeds.
However, they also have one for bigger pups.
In it, you get 5 curated products, including treats, toys, and apparel.
I am kind of sad that the cat version gives you more (6 products), and I wish they offered different versions.
My dog hates clothing with a fiery passion, so I’d really only get 4 good items out of it.
If your pup doesn’t mind apparel, though, the price is fair.
It’s on sale for 10% off throughout October, too.
4. Greenies Seasonal Gingerbread Flavor Dental Dog Treats
When it comes to dental chews, Greenies is always a favorite among dogs and dog parents alike.
Their holiday-edition is gingerbread-flavored, and you’ll get four to a bag for large dogs, but 22 to a bag for small breeds.
They’re kind of pricey for Freya’s size, but absolutely fair for those with teeny pups.
- Contains one (1) 6 oz. 4-count pack of GREENIES Gingerbread Flavor Large Dog Dental Chews
- The unique texture of GREENIES Dog Chews helps clean down to the gumline to fight plaque and tartar and freshen breath, making these Christmas dog treats a great addition to their dog stocking
- GREENIES Treats for Dogs are veterinarian recommended for dental care and accepted by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) for helping control tartar and plaque
- Treat your dog fantastically with these dog Christmas treats that are easy to digest
- GREENIES are made with natural ingredients plus added vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, making them the perfect Christmas treats for dogs
5. Good ‘n’ Fun Holiday 12 Days of Dogmas Holiday Calendar Dog Treats
Freya had an awesome Christmas advent calendar that I got from Sam’s Club last year.
When it was gone, she cried to play “calendar” every night, so I scoured the planet for another one.
Unfortunately, it was too late in the season and they were all sold out everywhere.
So this year, I’m stocking up on every decent one I can find.
The Good N’ Fun calendar, unfortunately, has too much beef in it for my Freya (she’s sensitive to beef).
However, if your dog doesn’t have food allergies, it’s an adorable option!
- FESTIVE HOLIDAY PACKAGE: Set to the tune of the classic holiday song, the Good ‘n’ Fun 12 Days of Dogmas Calendar will get your pup in the holiday spirit!
- VARIETY OF CHEWS: Contains eight Triple Flavor Twist Sticks and four Triple Flavor Kabobs.
- GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN: Good ‘n’ Fun Triple Flavor Twist Sticks are made with real beef hide, pork hide and chicken. Good ‘n’ Fun Triple Flavor Kabobs are made with beef hide, chicken, pork hide, wholesome duck and hearty chicken liver.
- LONG-LASTING ENTERTAINMENT: Fun and delicious way to satisfy your dog’s natural urge to chew.
- QUANTITY: 12 chews per pack.
- Age range description: All Life Stages
6. WHIMZEES Holiday Tree & Snowman Variety Pack Dental Dog Treats
WHIMZEES practically has its own cult following in the dog world, that’s how awesome they are.
Along with delivering high-quality dental treats, they do it in the cutest shapes ever!
Their special holiday-edition treats aren’t just absolutely darling, they actually help fight plaque and bacteria, thanks to the unique shapess
These are definitely going into miss P. Hound’s stocking!
- CHEW 1X DAILY: Fights bacteria every day to promote oral health
- CLEANS 2X BETTER: Reduces more plaque than the leading dental chew

- LIMITED INGREDIENT: These vegetarian treats clean your dogs' teeth with limited ingredients providing a healthy treat for dogs with allergies or sensitivities
7. Companion Gear Advent Calendar Dog Treats
The Frisco Holiday 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar with Toys for Dogs is exactly what the name says.
Rather than treats, your dog gets a cute new toy every day of the season!
The only drawback- it’s made for small breeds only. SUPER SAD about that!
Again, though, if you have a teeny pupper, then this is really a fantastic deal!
It’s basically just over $2 per toy!
The tree is beautiful, too, and you can reuse it next year to fill with your own goodies.
8. DreamBone Holiday Variety Vegetables & Chicken Dog Treats
DreamBone is one of the most popular rawhide alternatives, and their holiday edition treats are just darling.
I love that they’re made with chicken and veggies!
However, they’re made in Vietnam, so be aware of that if you only buy US-made treats.
They do have great overall reviews, though!
- Rawhide-free: Dream Bone chews are easy to digest.
- Real vegetables and chicken: made with real vegetables and chicken for a scrumptious taste dogs love.
- Enriched with vitamins and minerals: these chews are a healthy alternative to rawhide.
- Helps maintain healthy teeth: chewing helps maintain healthy teeth.

9.Portland Pet Food Company All-Natural Dog Treat Biscuits
I saw these on Amazon and just loved what I read about them.
The small US-based company uses only the most wholesome ingredients possible.
They’re totally free of gluten, wheat, and grain, as well as a whole list of other not-so-stellar ingredients.
Plus, Portland Pet Food Company donates 5% of their net profits to local non-profit animal programs.
So, they really are a holiday dog gift that gives back!

10. Claudia’s Canine Cuisine – Santa Paws Classic Gourmet Dog Cookies
How stinking cute are these Christmas cookies for dogs?
Besides being absolutely darling, they’re made in the USA with human-grade ingredients.

11. Blue Dog Bakery Jingle Bites Gingerbread Flavor Dog Treats
These tasty gingerbread treats are always a hit in our home.
They’re made with real gingerbread, which naturally fights bad breath.
In other words, they make those slobbery dog kisses a lot more pleasant.
Each treat is just 3 kcals, and they’re 100% free of GMOs, animal by-products, and fake ingredients like artificial colors & what not.
Freya loves Blue Dog Bakery’s soft cookies, so these are going into her stocking, too.
12.The Lazy Dog Cookie Co. Soft Baked Mutt Mallows Gingerbread Cuties
I’m loving the name of these Christmas-themed dog treats- Mutt Mallows! So cute!
The brand actually makes a huge variety of soft dog cookies, but these are just right for the holidays.
All of their cookies are made in the USA and are free of corn, wheat, and soy.
- Delicious Christmas dog treats from Lazy Dog! Soft Baked with a Smoky Roasted Vanilla & Gingerbread aroma.

13.Cloud Star Wag More Bark Less Holiday Treats
We’ve looked at a few soft gingerbread-flavored dog treats, but what about something for dogs that prefer crunchy cookies?
That’s where these little gingerbread people from Cloud Star come in!
I’ve tried quite a few of Cloud Star’s treats with Freya, and she’s absolutely loved all of them.
She does prefer soft treats, though.
While they don’t have a special holiday packaging for their soft line, they do have a Turkey & Cranberry recipe that’s still pretty perfect!

14. Wüfers Dog Cookie Advent Calendar
I’ll be honest, this dog advent calendar is a bit pricey compared to others.
However, it’s filled with handmade and hand-decorated cookies, so every box is unique.
The cookies are made in North America with locally sourced ingredients, according to the company.
The box is beautiful, too, and if you’re careful opening the doors, you could totally use it again with your own treats.
- TASTY TREATS YOUR DOG WILL LOVE: Get the best gift for your dog this holiday season with Wüfers 2020 Advent Cookie Calendar. Our advent calendar comes in a magnetic closure box packaged in a gold foil design, and contains 24 tasty Wüfers cookies: 23 mini bones and 1 special mini-paw cookie on December 24th! Box Weight: 1.76 lbs / 0.8kg. Calorie content: 4,230
- MADE IN NORTH AMERICA FROM LOCALLY SOURCED HUMAN GRADE INGREDIENTS: Each one of our dog treats is freshly baked, hand-decorated and made with wholesome and locally sourced human grade ingredients. Your box comes with a variety of cookies that are big and small and are either frosting drizzled, enrobed, contain plain yogurt cups, etc. to satisfy all doggie sizes and taste buds!
- COMPLETELY SAFE FOR YOUR PUP: Our pets are our family. This means we extend our healthy lifestyle and beliefs to include them. Wüfers believes that treating your dog doesn’t have to include a long list of unmentionable and unrecognizable ingredients - if we can’t eat it, why should they?
- ARRIVES FRESH AND READY TO EAT: We pack our cookie boxes with care, to ensure the treats arrive in perfect condition and ready to eat. Each cookie is individually wrapped in recyclable plastic bags to preserve their freshness. So, whether you are celebrating for a day or a month, your cookies will stay as fresh as the day they were made.
- EACH COOKIE BOX IS UNIQUELY HAND-DECORATED BY A TALENTED TEAM OF DOG LOVERS: Since Wüfers dog treats cookies are handmade and hand-decorated, individual cookies may differ slightly from the pictures, but they’ll fit the theme, taste the same and probably look even cuter!
15. Himalayan Pet Supply Best Friend’s Advent Calendar Dog Treats
Now this is one advent calendar I’m definitely grabbing for Freya!
It’s priced affordably and stuffed full of tasty goodies from the Himalayan Pet Supply company.
We’re talking everything from soft cookies to yak cheese goodies!
Plus, all are made in the USA.
The ONLY drawback is that it takes a while to ship from Amazon and it’s temporarily out of stock on Chewy.
I believe that will change once the holiday season really kicks off, though.
- CHRISTMAS TREATS for your pups in this classic Advent Calendar format - Peek inside each window to find a tasty treat for your best friend
- 24 DAYS of TREATS from Washington State
- EVERY COOKIE, TREAT OR CHEW is made from all natural ingredients
- Happy Teeth - Cheese - Peanut Butter - Bacon | YakyPuff - Cheese Peanut Butter - Bacon - Chicken | Popping Yaky Charms

I know one dog who is going to be positively thrilled on Christmas morning!
Well, as long as she doesn’t find her stocking before the holiday like she did two years ago, that is.
I thought I hid it well, but she watches my every move.
When I wasn’t looking, she raided my bedroom closet and came running downstairs with her stolen booty!
I’m getting better at hiding it, though! 😀
