How to be the Leader of the Pack by Patricia B. McConnell – Value $4

Here is the Amazon description of this booklet:

Learn how to love your dogs without spoiling them and provide boundaries without intimidation. This dog training booklet clarifies how to be a benevolent leader and avoid aggression related to fear or dominance. If you want to be a natural leader to your pack and teach your dog that being polite is fun, this booklet tells you how to do it in a peaceful, kind way. The ideas and exercises are based on the way dogs communicate with each other, so they are highly effective and easy for your dog to understand. Written by Patricia McConnell, it is an essential part of any canine library!

I treat our dog more like a roommate/best friend, so I probably could benefit from reading this little book!

The box also came with training cards – this box seems to have a pretty big emphasis on training.

Wag More Bark Less Mini Hollow Fetch Bone – Value $10

Water Bottle Buddies – Value $5

This Fetch Bone is made of natural rubber and seems pretty much indestructible.

As soon as I saw this Gingerbread Man Bottle Buddy in the box, I knew it had to go to my sister-in-law’s puppy – he is obsessed with empty water bottles! (The Bottle Buddy comes with a water bottle inside it, and you can replace it with a new one whenever needed).

Snout Soother – Travel Size Value $4.95

Stewart Pro-Treat 100% Pure Chicken Liver Treats for Dogs – .3 oz Value $2

This Snout Soother product is made for dry or chapped dog noses! It’s supposed to be especially good for short snout breeds, and I think we’ll pass this along to our friends with bulldogs.

I’m happy to see these freeze dried snacks are 100% chicken, and made in the USA. Our pup loves them too!

Clear Conscience Pet Lamb Airy Bites – Value $4.95

Clear Conscience Pet Beef Trachey Chewz – Value $6.95

Both of these treats are made in the USA with wholesome and natural ingredients. (And since the main ingredients are meat, I have a feeling our dog Buckles will love them).

Paw Pack Clicker – Value $1?

Paw Pack Treat Bag – Value $4?

These go well with the training cards and book – I wonder if it is too late to try clicker training with a very stubborn 7-year old Cairn/Terrier poodle mix?

Verdict: The value of this box is about $43 – the exact cost of the box. (I didn’t put a dollar value on the training card info included, but I think it is a nice addition to the box). I’m impressed with the quality of the items they included, and if you’re interested in this box, I would recommend signing up for a 6 or 12 month plan with the 20% off coupon to make sure you get a great value each month too. (For example, this box cost would be $27.20 instead of $43 with an annual plan and 20% off).

I also like that they cater to both cats and dogs!

What do you think of Paw Pack?

  1. I love the idea of these pet boxes, but we have not found a toy yet that our dog cannot destroy within 30 minutes of her obtaining it. (She is an english bull terrier mix)

    • Would the replaceable water bottle toy be helpful for you? I like that it can be “refurbished and reused” after destructo-dog has a go at it. PetBox and PetsLoveToys all offer a choice of toys each month. Perhaps you could find something a bit sturdier with them? My dog loved every single toy he got from PetBox and plays with them more than any others. And he’s a shredder/chewer champ.

    • Thats also our problem. Gunner is lab, rottie mix and he destroys everything! Its stinks.. So we found this one box, its only 18$ (With my coupon code, you can get it for only 14$!! Code “gunnerdog” for Pet Gift Box) But we get anywhere from 2-4 toys, along with 2-3 bags of treats, and then side things, like this month we get cream for itchy,red spots. And then last month we got a food bowl! Id really recommend trying 1 month of it. The boxes are so cheap, you really dont even have to worry about if they are gonna be destroyed(:

  2. Hey Liz! It’s never too late to try positive training techniques! Old dogs CAN learn new tricks. That being said, i am in an Animal Assisted Interactions Associate’s program at my local community college and would love to swap for any of the training items from this box!

  3. I’d live to see a review of the cat box (or any cat boxes really). Is there any chance of you getting the cat one to review?

    • Me too!

      I have four cats and I’ve tried a few cat boxes but there are so many out there, I’m not sure which is the best for my situation. I’m just working my way through, trying a few months at a time, but reviews would be great.

    • YES!! Me too. I have three cats and feel like no boxes really cater to them, just dogs. I’d be really interested in some reviews of cat boxes 🙂

      • I’d be happy to sign up for a few boxes and review them – but since I only have a dog, I probably won’t be able to do a great job at the review. If anyone is interested in reviewing cat boxes (and maybe more than that) – send me an email! (Liz @ mysubscriptionaddiction . com)

        Otherwise I’ll do my best!

        • Hi Liz, I’d love to review cat boxes! I have 5 cats and I’ve been hoping to see cat box reviews. I’ll send you an email. 🙂

  4. I think I’d be annoyed at receiving training materials in a box. Especially when it seems all over the board wiyh it in just this one box. Heck, it talks about dominance theory/pack hierarchy being debunked, but then includes a book teaching you how to be an “alpha”.

  5. Do we know if this box is customizable by dog size? If not that’s unfortunately a deal breaker for me since I’ve had bad luck with pet subs and getting toys that were way too big for my small-medium pup.

    • Yep – I believe they have 3 size options! 🙂

      • That’s great! We’ve tried all of the big ones including PetBox (our fave so far, still offering the Groupon deal for $33 for 3 months-$11/box!), Pets Love Toys, and Bark Box. The size customization is definitely the key. We’re signing up for this one now (we being me and the dog, lol). Thanks!

  6. Love the picture of your dog in the box, Liz. Our dog assists with the opening of her Barkbox each month also. Our dog looks very similar to your dog with the same hair style and coloring. She is a schnoodle, which is schnauzer/poodle.
