Happy Dog Box Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Box

Happy Dog Box is a monthly subscription box for dogs. We’ve been subscribing for a few months now and we’re happy with the quality and the value of the box – the treats have been healthy and made in the USA, and our dog has loved it too!

This box is customized to your dog’s size, so for reference this review is of the small dog box. (Our dog Buckles is a 15 pound Cairn Terrier Poodle Mix).

Happy Dog Box Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Card

Each box comes with a card detailing all of the items included.

Happy Dog Box Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Bones

Pet N’ Shape Pork Bones – Value $4 total

These are all natural and made and sourced in the USA.

Happy Dog Box Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Barkworthies

Barkworthies Knuckle Bone Filet – Value $6.30

Barkworthies Chews – Value $7

Our dog loves Barkworthies chews – too much! I’m a little nervous about giving him this Knuckle Bone Filet though, it seems like it’s too big for small dogs?

Happy Dog Box Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Toy

Sprong Pet Toy – Value $15

Smart N’ Tasty Duck Treats – Value $6

These dog treats are grain, dairy and soy free, plus they are made in the USA! And most importantly – our pup likes them! (He doesn’t care for this toy though!)

Happy Dog Box Subscription Box Review - March 2014 Biscuits

Big Daddy Biscuits Mixed Bag – Value $5

Unfortunately these biscuits escaped their bag in shipping! Our dog didn’t care for them anyway though (anything that’s too healthy/organic he tends to reject), so I didn’t bother contacting Happy Dog Box for a replacement.

Verdict: We paid $25 for this box and received about $45 worth of items. I’m very impressed with the quality of bones and treats they include in this box, and I think we may upgrade to the 6-month subscription to save more.

What do you think of the March Happy Dog Box?

  1. Our puppy loved this box. Our one treats were spilled as well, I contacted them and they refunded me for the amount of them. Talk about good customer service!

    Your website has been a bad influence on me, I’m subscribing to all kinds of boxes now, even reviewing them!

  2. I just signed up for Happy Dog Box this month, and I was super excited (my first dog subscription box). However, I’m getting a little bummed as it’s going on two weeks and still no sign that it will be shipped anytime soon (has been saying customizing box for quite awhile now) even though their website says the first box ships “within a week.” How long did you guys wait to receive your first box? Does this delay seem to be their usual way of doing business? I hope not, as this box seemed to be the best fit for my finicky little guy, who I try to feed as naturally and humanely as possible.

    • If you want to customize your box, you should definitely check out PetBox ( I’ve been using them for several months and they are GREAT. PetBox has a great selection of quality items and every month you could hand pick the treats your “finicky little guy” likes the most!

  3. I still can’t understand how everybody else theirs this month?? Mine just shipped today, they sent email

  4. Hey Liz — What dog subscription box would you recommend for my Buddy? He LOVES toys, but doesn’t get too crazy over the treats and food. I was ordering Barkbox for him for a few months and he got SO excited every time it arrived – he knew it was for him, which is the cutest thing in the world and totally worth the monthly charge. The only thing with Barkbox is that he really didn’t use most of the food/treat items so it just ended up being kind of a waste. Do you have any suggestions of boxes that send out more pup toys than treats?

    • I haven’t personally tried it, but PetsLoveToys let’s you pick which box you get between a treat box, treat/toy box, or just a toy box. I’m always lurking the site and the toys seem like real, good quality brands 🙂

    • I just read your post and DoggyLoot has a subscription service called “Toy of the Month”. I am not a subscriber, but thought it might be something you might want to look into.

  5. I thought they ship on the 23rd? Ive not got mine yet…

  6. I thought this box was a great value! I’ve been very pleased with it so far and they include a lot more items over some of the other pet boxes out there. Loved this one!

  7. This box looks so awesome. I pick up similar items at a small, locally owned Barkery though, and so I keep my dollars with her. Unfortunately, my dog seems to have doggie IBS as she cannot eat anything but rice without getting sick.

  8. My dog LOVED the Big Daddy Biscuits Mixed Bag! I need to order some now. Liz if you don’t want yours maybe we can swap something for them. 😉

  9. I just subscribed to this one for our puppy, it looks great and that it’s a good value. Can’t wait to get ours!

  10. I wouldn’t worry about the knucklebone. They just gnaw at it and it lasts forever. I actually would recommend taking it away when it gets small enough that they could potentially swallow it. This is a great looking box!

    • Agreed about the knucklebone. Definitely worse to give them products that are too small that they could swallow whole. And I’ve found with my dog that chew toys last longer if she has a hard time getting her entire mouth around them (hard to find things that big, though — she’s an 88 pound Rottie…).
