PawPack Subscription Box Review + Coupon – February 2016
PawPack is a monthly subscription box for dogs or cats. PawPack customizes your box to your dog’s size – my dog, Nyx, weighs 84 pounds. This is a review of the “large” dog box. PawPack focuses on eco-friendly, organic, and natural items for your pet.
PawPack sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The card this month talked about pet dental health month. I am well aware of this month as my vet promotes it heavily and offers discounts for dental cleanings during February and March!
Artvark GoGo Curly Bully Stick (8-9 inches) – Value $2.86
This value is based off a similar item, since you can’t see prices on the Artvark site unless you log in. These are all natural and sourced from South America and the USA. This same item was in the box last month, too, but I guess that’s a win if your dog likes them!
Wellness Trufood Grain Free Protein Bites Beef & Beef Liver Recipe (4 oz) – Value $6.80
This brand has been making the rounds of the dog and cat boxes the past month or two. These are grain free and Wellness is a brand I feel pretty good about. I will see how Nyx does with them as she has been able to handle beef in the past.
Whimzees Dental Treats Toothbrush (4 count package, small) – Value $1.33
I know this brand was a sponsor this month, but these are way too small to give to a dog Nyx’s size. A nice tie in to pet dental health month if you have a smaller dog, though.
Kate Aspen Paw Print Photo Frame (2.5 by 2 inch photo size) – Value $8.40
I will have to see if I can print out a photo of Nyx or one of the cats to put in here. It’s a nice little extra.
Kate Aspen Refrigerator Magnets (6 count) – Value $4.50
These are cute and we can always use more refrigerator magnets. I could only find these on eBay and overseas, so the link is to eBay.
Poop ‘n Go Bag Holder and Roll of Bags – Value $6.99
I think Nyx’s knees are healed enough for very short walks after many months of laser pain treatment and rest. So I will bring these along so as not to incur the wrath of the neighbors for leaving things behind…
Grain Free Wet Noses Berry Blast Organic Dog Treats (1.5 oz) – Value $2.57
I don’t think I’ve ever had a dog that actually wanted to eat berries. But I know there will be a ton of antioxidants here, plus these are grain free and organic and made in the USA!
Charming Pet Love Pulleez Forget-Me-Not Frog – Value $13.49
Plushes are always a hit. We got about 7 dog subscription boxes this week, though, so Nyx just hasn’t had time to play with this yet.
Zippy Paws Strawberry Donutz – Value $7.99
Zippy Paws is a regular inclusion in PawPack. Nyx generally loves them, although I don’t think most are made to survive an 84-pound power chewer. (See below.)
And here is a short photo essay on the three stages of giving any toy to Nyx.
Two: Actual play.
Three: Destruction and subsequent loss.
Verdict: I calculated a value of almost $55 for the February PawPack box. That is a great deal, even at the one month rate, plus it is a big improvement over last month. I thought there was a nice mix of toys, treats, supplies, and extras, and I always like the focus on natural and USA-made treats.
What do you think of the February 2016 PawPack box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
