stuffed turkey toy

Griggles – Stuffed Turkey Toy – $14.99

This toy is pretty big and adorable. It is supposed to have a squeaker in it, but I couldn’t find it. I’m sure my dogs will be able to scope it out!

IMAG2772_1

Mirage Pet Products– Holiday Bow Tie – $10.99

This is such a cute idea! I like that we didn’t get another bandana in the box this month.

Weruva– Food Topper in Pumpkin Patch Up! – $3.99

this month’s treats

Blue Ridge Naturals– Sweet Tater Fries (5 ounces) – $12.99

Dog Days Treats– Turkey Breast Jerky (3 ounces) – $9.99

I was pleased to see 2 full bags of treats in this month’s box! We tried out the sweet potato fries and my dogs loved them. They are big, too. Perfect for large dogs.

The total value of this month’s box is $52.95! I was really pleased with the variety in this box and the theme. I love the bow tie and the toy is also quite adorable. Well done (again), Pet Gift Box!

This month had a Halloween theme! I’m also pretty sure this was the first month Surprise My Pet used paper and a sticker. Nice touches! Watch our unboxing video HERE!

the treats

the treats

The snacks this month were all great. I do wish there had been a larger bag of treats, but my dogs love all of this stuff, so it’s OK with me!

Pawsitively Gourmet– Halloween Cookie

My dogs LOVED this! The topping is yogurt (instead of icing). A cute addition to the Halloween box!

Puptato Chips – Sweet Potato Chips (2 ounces)

These are dried, but crunchy sweet potatoes. A great, healthy snack for dogs!

Etta Says – Crunchy Rabbit Chew

We have tons of these chews in my house and love getting them in boxes. My dogs drool over these.

the toys

the toys

The toys were both appropriately themed for Halloween! My dogs rip up stuffed toys pretty quickly, but Mandela usually carries them around for a few days before he decides to destroy them. And he loves them, so I don’t mind getting them in the box (sometimes he’s not as interested in the very durable toys designed for large dogs).

Vo-Toys– Tricksters Toys in Spider and Eye

Halloween t-shirt

Halloween t-shirt

We also get a Halloween t-shirt in the box! It is an XL, but if you have a dog over 60 ish pounds, it will be too small. I appreciate the thought and idea. Mandela can wear this, though it’s a big snug across his chest. I didn’t get a photo, but check out our unboxing video (link above) to see me put it on him. I let my neighbor’s Corgi wear it and it fit him perfectly. Cute idea for Halloween and not something I’ve seen in a dog box before.

There was no product card this month with prices or information, so I don’t have prices for you. But if you do the annual plan, this box would only be $19, which is a great deal for all the goodies we got. I appreciate the attention to the theme, which is something new Surprise My Pet is introducing. Overall, I thought this was a nice box!

Zanie’s – Peek-A-Boo Toy – $8.99

This is one of those toys with the most annoyingly loud pitched squeakers ever, but the witch pops out when it gets squeaked and it’s adorable.

Griggles – Plush Pumpkin Toy – $12.99

This thing only has one squeaker, but it’s HUGE. Perfectly themed!

Halloween bandana

I wonder if this is becoming the usual with Pet Gift Box, because it’s the 2nd month in a row with a bandana. I put them on Mandela and he looks adorable.

These big cookies/bones are adorable and will be perfect for a rainy day or when my dogs are spending longer in their crate.

The total value of this month’s box is $43.95! I have been loving Pet Gift Box. After the first month’s snafu with shipping, I’ve had no issues with them since and love how thoughtfully curated everything is. I’m happy with this month’s assortment of goodies.

Pet Gift Box August 2015 + 50% Discount

My August Pet Gift Box FINALLY arrived! It took a lot of messaging back and forth with Pet Gift Box to get them to fix a shipping issue this month. They apologized and did fix it, but it took a lot of effort. I’m not impressed with their customer service, but I do love my box this month! I switched from Barkbox to Pet Gift Box because I wanted a change for my dogs. Pet Gift Box has awesome themes and great curation and this month was no exception!

Puppy Cake – Puppy Scoops Ice Cream in Maple Bacon – $6.99

Both of these treats are so adorable! You just add water and put in the fridge/freezer for a cold, delicious treat for your dogs after a hot day. I love the unique items in this box!

The total value of this box is $29.95, which is awesome if you do the annual subscription at $17.99/month. Every item matches perfectly with the theme and I like the variety of toys, treats, and a lifestyle item. Even though I wasn’t happy with the customer service, I’m really happy with this box and can’t wait to see what the theme is for September!

Hyper Pet tennis balls

Hyper Pet – Tennis Balls (4) – $3.89

My dogs love to fetch and swim, so these will definitely get used in my house!

Cloud Star dental bone (left) and treats (right)

Cloud Star – Dynamo Dog Dental Bone in Breath (for 50-80lb dogs) – $2.68

I was excited to see a dental chew in this box. I rarely buy these by themselves because they are expensive and quickly add up when you have 2 large dogs, so I’m happy to get one in the box.

Cloud Star – Buddy Biscuits in Roasted Chicken (6 ounces) – $4.49

My dogs love Cloud Star treats! These are soft and chewy and meaty. They are ginger bread man shaped, too, which is super adorable.

Multi Pet loofa

MultiPet  – Loofa dog toy (12 inches)- $5.99

This toy makes a unique squeaking sound and I know Mandela will love trying to rip this thing up.

Multi Pet Elephant Head

Multi Pet Elephant Head

MultiPet – Rope Head Elephant toy – $5.99

This toy is great for large dogs and tough chewers because the head is made out of rope. This will take my dogs much longer to rip up than if it were made out of plastic or rubber. And it’s so cute!

Healthy Dogma treats

Healthy Dogma treats

Healthy Dogma – Jamaican Bacon Barkers (6.2 ounces) – $5.95

We’ve gotten this brand of treats before and my dogs love them. I’ve never seen this flavor before either.

Etta Says chew (top) and Jones Natural Chew Co. hoof (bottom)

Etta Says chew (top) and Jones Natural Chew Co. hoof (bottom)

Etta Says – Crunchy Deer Chew (7 inches) – $.99

Jackson loves these so much. As he gets older, he doesn’t really want the larger and harder bully sticks, so these are perfect for him.

Jones Natural Chew Co. – Beef Hoof – $.86

We get cow hooves a lot in our house. They are so cheap (I have no idea why) but last SO LONG. My dogs carry these around for days. They are kind of stinky when they chew them, but they are a long lasting treat, which is perfect for large dogs.

July 2015 Surprise My Pet Box

July 2015 Surprise My Pet Box

The total value of this box is $30.84. That value is actually not as high as I expected it to be considering how many items we got! I also put the lowest prices I could find online (and there were huge ranges), so that value is on the lowest end. I love the curation of this box and how appropriate everything was for large dogs!

This toy crinkles and squeaks and has no stuffing (a definite plus in my book!). This is a big toy and perfect for big dogs! I know Mandela will love this.

K9 Granola

K9 Granola Factory

K9 Granola Factory – Carrot Chips (5 ounces) and Green Bean Chips (5 ounces) – $10 each

We tried the carrot ones and my dogs love these. Watch my dogs try them in our unboxing video HERE! I give them fresh veggies a good bit because they are healthy snacks. These are fresh veggies in a crispy, crunchy version!

Exclusively Dog Bones

Exclusively Dog – Dog Bone in Cheesy Bacon and Salmon & Mango flavors – $10 (for all 3)

These are larger than my hand! When I unboxed, Mandela tried to eat the bone in the wrapper right out of my hand! I love the size of these and even though they are crunchy bones and won’t take long for my dogs to eat, I consider these a special chew/treat that goes in our “rainy day box.”

True Drool July 2015

True Drool July 2015

The total value of this month’s box is $45. I’m really impressed with this box! I know this box is more expensive than some of the other on the market, but these large dog sizes of toys and treats are usually 2-3 times (if not more) the price of regular/small sizes, so I definitely think you get your money’s worth in this box. I also loved that there were a couple of brands and products I had never seen before and probably wouldn’t have known about to get my dogs. Discovering new products is part of what subscription boxes are all about!
