January 2015 Pet Gift Box Review

I love getting mail.  Particularly for my dogs.  We received our January Pet Gift Box over the weekend!

The Goods

America's Vet Dogs Camouflage Retriever Dog Toy.  Approximate retail value $10.49.  At first glance, the pattern appears camouflage, but is actually silhouettes of dogs in various colors.  It is cute, and seemingly made of durable material.  If this proves to be waterproof, it will be a definite winner!

Big Wumpers Rope and Plush Toy.  Unknown value.  Quite possibly the cutest toy ever.  Stuffed hippo with a rope running through it.  It does not seem to be durable enough to stand up to my dogs, so this item will be gifted or donated.

Beastie Bar Chicken Dog Treat.  I am a sucker for packaging, labels, etc.  This is packaged like a granola bar, and I love it!  Soft chicken treat bar that is made in the USA with good ingredients.  I am sure all three dogs will like this.  I feel it is soft enough for me to break off little pieces of it to offer it to all three dogs.

It's Purely Natural Pure Beef Jerky Bars.  Approximate retail value $6.01.  We have had this product in the past, and it was very well received by all three dogs.  One ingredient-beef.  The bars are also easily broken into smaller pieces to stretch them out or for use as training treats.

Safari Tennis Tugger.  Unknown value.  Rope and ball toys are always a big hit, and I am sure this one will be as well.  As always, supervise play with toys such as this.

I am pretty impressed with this Pet Gift Box, particularly when one considers that this subscription box only costs $17.99 per month.  Check them out for yourself!

I was provided with complimentary product.  All opinions are strictly my own.

January 2015 BarkBox Review

We received our January BarkBox over the weekend!  Reviews of previous and/or current BarkBoxes can be read HERE.

The Goods

Caru Real Pork Stew.  Approximate retail value $5.00.  A high quality wet dog food, that is made in the US with recognizable ingredients.  This company seems really nice, and I will definitely feed this to one of my dogs.

Ever Tuff Roller Chew Toy.  Approximate retail value $11.20.  Who doesn't love a good nylon chew?  This is an interesting shape, and is said to be good for dental health.  I am a fan of these types of toys, as they are one of the few things that my dogs cannot quickly destroy.  I am also thinking one could smear some peanut butter or something similar on this toy to make it even more fun.

Etta Says Crunchy Deer Chew.  Approximate retail value $3.49.  We have received many products from this company in the past, and they are always a HUGE hit, no matter what protein is used.  My dogs adore anything venison, so I am pleased to receive this.  Now to decide which lucky dog gets it...

Krunchie Tube.  Unknown retail value.  A US made dehydrated trachea.  As many are well aware, I am a huge fan of single-ingredient, natural treats and chews.  My dogs adore these types of treats, and they are reasonably long lasting.  I am excited about this for them.

Max & Ruffy's Blizzard Bites.  Approximate retail value $6.49.  These vegan, organic treats are made for BarkBox.  We have received other products from this company in the past, and they have been hit or miss with my dogs.  I have a feeling both Neeko and Bruce will like these particular treats, but not quite sure about Faolan.

Overall, I am quite pleased with this month's BarkBox. Rarely do I feel that my dogs can actually enjoy EVERY item in a box, but this is the case this month, and it makes me very happy. Some treats, a toy, a high quality stew and some chews.  To try BarkBox for yourself, and save 10% off your order, click HERE.
