Costco Dog Delights Advent Calendar Review

Dogs are often treated like family members, so of course they need an advent calendar too! Last year, Costco’s dog advent calendar offering (the Irish Rover Dog Advent Calendar) was recalled. I was happy to see that Costco brought back dog advent calendars in 2022 with a new supplier. Is the Dog Delights Advent Calendar worth buying for your furry friend? Find out everything you need to know about it here!

I love my dogs and see them as part of my family. We have two dogs, an 11-year-old and a one-year-old, both are Shih Tzu Yorkies. When I was recently at Costco I saw the new Dog Delights Advent Calendar for Christmas 2022 and decided to treat my dogs to one.

Location in Store

You can find the Costco dog advent calendar in the pet aisle. The item number is 1691635.

What’s included in the Costco dog advent calendar?

There are 24 days of treats and each day has an individually packaged little bag of treats. The entire weight of the advent calendar is 560 grams and if you have a smaller dog, that’s quite a few treats! I appreciate that the treats come individually packaged because one bag lasts me more than one day.

What kinds of treats are in the Costco dog advent calendar?

There are six different kinds of treats in the box, beef tender bites, bacon flavour protein cookie, chicken pot pie protein cookie, chewy beef mini trainers, chewy lamb mini trainers and beef liver bites. There are no toys in the calendar.

Do dogs like the Costco dog advent calendar?

My dogs did this taste test for me and they love the treats! Our young dog, Kiwi ended up stealing one of the bacon flavour protein cookies and swallowed it whole which lead to her coughing it up and honking for a few minutes but I’m pretty sure she loved it!

The advent calendar costs $23.99 Canadian which isn’t bad for a fun and unique gift for our furry friends! There’s actually a decent amount of treats in the calendar, especially for small dogs.

  1. Got the advent calendar from last year for my pug.she did not get sick from any of the treats but stopped. Giving them to her when it was recalled. Hopefully this years will be better. At least it’s Canadian made this year. There are some calendars out made in China which I will NOT purchase.
