December PetBox - Dog Box

I love all the different boxes out there for the fur babies but I stopped subscribing because Maddie had an overload of toys and snacks. I found a deal for a three month subscription to PetBox and I thought what the heck it's been awhile since she's received mail. PetBox is a monthly subscription offering items for your dog and or cat. You can choose to be surprised or you can pick the items out yourself. I'm guessing if you are subscribing for a dog and cat then picking out the items yourself would be beneficial. For this subscription I only signed Maddie up and chose the surprise me option. They offer 4 different size boxes ranging from $9.95-$59.95 a month with discounts offered for 3 months and 12 month plans. Shipping is included in all plans. This review is for the snack box.

Price: $9.95-$59.95 a month depending on size of box. 

The good:



Pets - Lots of people have dogs and it can be hard to figure out what products work.  This is a great way to try stuff out without spending a ton of money.  

Semi-customized - your 10lb. Chihuahua won't be receiving a toy larger than it's whole body.  (Although I know lots of Chihuahua's that like to think they are bigger than they are and would love the challenge)

Need a gift - It's like a shower gift for someone with a new fur baby.  How cool is that.  Congrats on your new bundle of fur, here's 3 months of goodies to get you started.  

Pricing options: I like that they have different pricing structures with one as low at $9.95 a month. 

Dog like surprises? - Dogs usually love surprises. Everything is a surprise to them.  They can join in the surprise fun with you when you open their box cause you won't know what you get until it gets to you. 

Donation - They donate a weeks worth of food to a shelter each week. 

Points: You earn points based on the size of the box you buy. I'm not sure if you get points every month or just once when you subscribe. 

Need more goodies: You can redeem your points for more toys, treats, supplies, etc and add them to your box with no additional shipping fees. 

The not so good:


Skip a month: There doesn't appear to be an option to skip.



This months box had only treats and no toys.


I added this little toy for the kitties, although Maddie likes playing with it also.



Contents of the PetBox:

Old Mother Hubbard Jingle Jangle P-Nuttier Treats. Value = $2.99

Sadie's Sweet Pawtato Chips sample. Value = $1.00??

Add-On

Cat Dancer Interactive Cat Toy. Value = $3.50

The total value of this box is $3.99 and I used points I had to add the cat toy. I am disappointed in the value of this box and that it had two treats and no toys. The sample treats had 3 pieces of dried sweet potato in it. Maddie seemed to enjoy them and I've heard sweet potato is good for dogs. 

Verdict: This box had a small value. I liked that I could add the cat toy on and used points.
