Hi everyone,

I'm new to the idea of the monthly subscription service for dogs... Has anyone ever tried these services before? If so, what would you recommend? I heard it’s supposed to provide a box of goodies and toys for your pups every month and delivers right to your door for a really affordable price. I am actually a big fan of Birchbox that does a similar thing, except with high-end makeup products and would really like to give these monthly subscriptions a try for my dogs. For the time being, I shop at our local pet shop for dog food but would like to make a switch and give my furbabies another option to try new things that they will enjoy. I've heard so many good things about these pet boxes that I really would like to give it a go... Can you tell me some of your favorites?

Thanks everyone for your help! I really appreciate it! smile

Kitsune- Trouble

Divide and- cuddle!!

We had Kitsune signed up for BarkBox for awhile. We liked it. The stuff they sent was all pretty high quality. Kitsune has food allergies, so some of the treats we weren't able to give him, but other then that I never really had any complaints. They don't send food though - usually just treats and toys. A few times we got grooming supplies too.

Actually, I have a pet blog and wrote a bunch of BarkBox reviews. If you want to take a look you can see what we got each month: Paw Print Pet Blog BarkBox Reviews

If you do decide to sign up, you can use our referral link to save $5 off your first order. Just copy/paste this URL: https://barkbox.com/r/8XgSxmqMEF/

I've heard of other dog subscription services but haven't tried any others yet. I think eventually I'll probably try some of the others as well. I think I have just as much fun as Kitsune does seeing what we get each month laugh out loud

I've never done monthly subscriptions. Heck, I don't get treats from the store much. I get pork shoulder bones to chomp on, a soccer ball to chase around, a yard to romp around in, and several humans to wrestle with.

But, I've heard a lot of good things about the Spoiled Rotten Box from petflow.com for $25 a month.

Personally, though, I'd rather get some grass-fed beef and free-range chicken and whole trout if I had $25/month to spare.

If you are looking for just quality, all natural treats, no fuss, we offer fresh baked treats straight from our bakery to your home every month with monthly featured fancy treats as well. With us you know they are baked fresh, not something that has been sitting in a warehouse somewhere and being sold by some online retailers. We are also a licensed and vetted dog bakery, not some fly by night operations.

One can choose from different collections for toy size dogs or large dogs. Please check us out. You'll be surprised how affordable we are for the high end quality treats we have. Check out the pictures and you'll know what I mean. Check out our Facebook page too to see what all our happy customers are raving about.

I personally love Pawalla, I get their monthly boxes for my dog and the cats.

Every month you get canned food, treats, toys and supplements for your pet, all picked out by a nutritionist so you know you're getting quality products. Here's a link if you want to check it out:

I've tried a bunch of other monthly goodie boxes and this is by far my favorite.

I like Wag-in-the-box. They rarely do samples, so you get full packages, and they really work hard to use boutique companies, so you get some things you may never heard of or thought to try.

I did a review on them not long ago, and I have a coupon code.
