PupCrate Dog Subscription Box Review – March 2016
PupCrate is a subscription box for dogs. They only send treats that are made in the USA. Choose from a small dog box (0-20 pounds), a medium dog box (20-50 pounds), and a large dog box (50+ pounds). This is a review of the large dog box. My dog Nyx is a Rottweiler and right now she weighs about 84 pounds.
PupCrate kindly sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Included was an information card with more information about the items in the box.
Hare of the Dog Rabbit with Aronia Berry Dog Treats (2.5 oz) – Value $9.49
These only have two ingredients, rabbit and aronia berries. They’re made in the USA and preservative free. I don’t think Nyx has ever had rabbit before, so that counts as a novel protein for her and might be safe for her IBD. We’re going to try these out and see.
Earth Rated Poop Bags (1 roll) – Value $0.75
Always useful to have more poop bags. And these are biodegradable, which is nice.
Sweet Potato Chews by NBONE (5 oz) – Value $10.80
This is another treat with only one ingredient. I am loving these no-filler treats in this box. (Some sweet potato chews have chicken flavoring in them, but these don’t!)
Patchwork Pet Collections Gus Greybar (13”) – Value $8.99
Of course Nyx loved this. I like these toys with rope arms. You can pull the rope through to either side. Nyx has such a hard time figuring out why she can’t pull the arms off of these. (She went for the squeaker in this one, instead.)
Shamrock Cookie from Preppy Puppy Treats – Value $2.50 (?)
You can’t see prices here unless you log in, so this value is a total guess. It’s nice for a St. Patrick’s Day theme and the ingredients are listed on the information card, in case you were wondering.
Nyx had damaged this toy quite a bit by this point. Here she is while we are attempting to distract her with another toy so we can take this one away. Because at this very moment, the toy looked like this:
Verdict: I calculated a value of $32.53 for the March PupCrate. This is a little bit more than the cost of the subscription (and is even a better deal with a coupon or longer-term subscription). What I really like is that the treats are good for a lot of dogs with allergies and food intolerances – they’re free of many common allergens and have very limited ingredients lists. Having a pet with serious dietary issues, I appreciate that it is hard to find treats like this, so I love discovering new brands in a subscription box.
