Try our Lily’s Kitchen Advent Calendar Challenge!

Will your dog do a trick for a Christmas treat?

To celebrate the start of the Festive Season we have back in stock a very limited number of these fabulous Lily’s Kitchen Advent Calendars, you can get yours here Shop Advent. If you would like one for your dog (and let’s face it why wouldn’t you!) then we have a little challenge that will make your dog think you are the best owner and will make the treats last even longer too!



At Pack Leader Dog Adventures we are big fans of playing, training and generally having FUN with our dogs so we thought it would be a great idea to get you interacting more with your dog

You have 24 days of treats but just are you going to use them?

Of course your dog will no doubt gobble them up very quickly so why not make him work a little harder for this festive snack.

The challenge is to get your dog to do one (or more new tricks) over the three plus weeks of advent.

This can be anything you like it to be, a sit, a down a spin, an over, a beg, a bow or any of the many other tricks you can easily teach any dog.

  • Tip the easiest way to teach your dog a trick is to simply show him the treat (Put it under his nose) then lure him slowly into position. So for a sit the treat goes under the nose and then slowly lift the treat above his head to just above his brow then the second his bum hits the floor say good boy and give him the treat. Then repeat a few times until he has it



Now there are 24 tasty treats for you to use (actually there are more than one behind some of the doors) so how many tricks can you get done before Christmas day?

Let us know and post a picture or a video on our Facebook page here Pack Leader Dog Adventures Facebook page

We very much look forward to seeing your dog’s having fun!

Ho Ho Ho!
