We haven’t tried a lot of pet subscription boxes, so when given an opportunity to try the Pet Treater monthly box, we were happy to do so. The theme for the box we got is “Football” and Luke was happy to be quarterback for the team for this.
To start with, I love the bright colors of the box, and the letter that Luke received from Pet treater’s cute little French bulldog, Cincy.
What I loved the most though was the number of toys that were included. Luke constantly needs new toys. His favorite thing to do in the evenings when his sisters are done for the day is to come sit by me and whine. I always say “What, Lassie?” and ask him to lead my to what he wants. Invariably he heads to the closet where he knows that new toys are kept.
I keep telling him there is not an endless supply of new toys. I’ve even tried stashing old toys in there for a while, and trying to pass them off as new, but he’s not fooled! Therefore, he was quite excited to see a selection of toys in this fun and colorful box.
Pet Treater is new to the subscription box game, having just started this last October, but I think they’ve got it figured out. All their treats are made in either the USA or Canada, and for every box they ship they donate an item – bed, blanket or toy – to a local shelter dog or cat. Each item in these boxes is hand selected, and you’ll see many familiar brand names along with some that may be new to you.
Here is what Luke got in this box:
- Your Pet Chef No Guilt Treats (2 bags!)- Grain free and handmade in the USA with fresh locally grown ingredients – ground chicken, cucumber, radish, and kale. Luke kindly shared with his sisters and they were a hit.
- Multipet Mr. Bill toy – We’ve had Multipet toys before and even though the dogs have to be supervised with them, they’ve loved each and every one. Yes, it really does say “Oh no, Mr. Bill!” when it’s squeezed!
- Nylabone Fun ‘n fit Treat Dispenser – This will come in handy when we finally get Luke using his crate again!
- Exclusively Dog Jerkeez – Pizza flavored! – Chewy chicken treats made in the USA. Shall we save these for the Super Bowl and the Puppy Bowl? They really smell like pizza!
- Nerf Dog Tuff Tug Football – Luke definitely loves this one, and even though he already chewed the rubber on the handle off (I actually cut it off once I saw him into it), it is still intact and making the rounds around the house. Even Sheba was trying to hog it yesterday morning!
- Unique Pet Treat Launcher – I’m not sure if the dogs or the humans will have more fun with this, but I can see it coming in handy for Luke’s training! I thought the loud noise it made might scare him, but it did not (I can never figure out what will scare or not scare my dogs, I swear).
- There was even an item just for the humans! A Salad-to-Go cup, a handy cup with a dressing container built into the top and fork attached to the side.
- A free bed! You can also get a free bed with your first subscription by using the special promo code provided at the end of this post. You can see the pillow bed in the photos. I did not make Luke lie on it to pose and play with those toys – he kept going there himself!
I was impressed with the size of the box and the quantity of items in there. If I had to find fault with anything, it was that all of the treats contained chicken. I know some dogs have allergies to that, and we had thought Luke might too. He had some itchiness back in the spring, and we knew it wasn’t from fleas, but thought it might be from food or seasonal. We had been feeding them fresh chicken around that time so we stopped that to see if it helped. He did stop scratching, but we don’t know if it was because we stopped the chicken or if another irritant went away. Anyway – we had planned to add it back into his diet slowly to find out for sure, since I cook a lot of chicken and want to include it in some of their home cooked meals; so I’m letting him sample the treats. I am also told by the company that you can make specific requests and they will try to comply with it even though they can’t make any promises.
I think anyone who gets these subscription boxes probably has an item here or there that they can’t use, and donating it to your shelter or giving it to a friend is a great thing to do.
In my opinion, this box may be one of the best values out there because of the size. Subscriptions start at $24.99 and go down to $19.99 for a 12 month subscription, and others are available in between. The subscriptions auto renew, but you can cancel at any time. They even have a one time box for $34.99 if you want to give it a try before committing.
