Subscription boxes are all the rage at the moment. You can get them full of craft items for the children, beauty products for the ladies, alcohol for adults and even boxes for your pet from My Pet Gift Box.
I wasn’t sure if these were a great idea or totally ludicrous but either way I wanted to give them a try and see what Buddy would think of them.
My Pet Gift Box is a company that offer pretty much what the title suggests, gift boxes for your pet, or at least your dog or cat. They offer boxes that can be delivered monthly, 3 monthly or 6 monthly and also have gifts that can be bought as one off’s for special occasions such as birthdays or Christmas.
They offer subscription boxes for your dog from £24.99 and boxes for cats from £19.99. Once you have chosen your type of pet you can then select
the regularity in which you would like the boxes to arrive,
the size of your dog,
its life stage,
the type of treats your dog likes
and what type of toys they like.
This ensures that all the items included can be enjoyed by your pet making sure you get good value for money.
We were sent a puppy box for Buddy and it contained the following:
Kong Weave Knots teddy toy
THR Bizz ball
Pooch and Mutt fresh breath treats
Feelwells Healthy Natural training treats
Pawtato mint and parsley dog chew tubes
Funky Dog Car air freshener
Everything in our box was suitable for Buddy and the toys were perfectly hard wearing which is exactly what he needs right now as he seems to chew and/or destroy everything in his wake. It was also great to be able to test out a few new brands of dog treats to see which ones he liked and most importantly which ones he is mostly to return for when we are practicing his recall.
Despite my initial reservations these boxes are pretty cool and good value for money and a great way to try out new brands without the hassle of shopping around. I also think they would make a great gift for someone who has just got a new pet.
Although the subscription box was great and I love the idea of receiving these monthly I also think it’s worth pointing out that you can purchase a box as a one of, or order them monthly and if you do that you have even more choose. You can shop by breed of dog and then decide if you want a birthday box, toy box, treat box, bedtime box, box for a specific diet, the options are endless and they even have a get well soon box which i wish i had known about sooner I would have ordered it for Buddy after his op last month.
