PawPack Subscription Box Review + Coupon – April 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 this month’s charity effort and the back had a list of products from the box.
Beco Bowl in Green – Value $8.99
This is made from natural bamboo resin and rice husks. It can be washed in the dishwasher but it can also be composted (fully biodegradable within 3-5 years). I think this is a pretty cool concept and I never would have guessed – it feels like some type of plastic. I hope to see more plastic replaced by similar technology in the future!
10-12” Prime Slice Back Strap Beef Ligament – Value $5 (?)
I like these one-ingredient treats; they’re wonderful for dogs with food allergies and intolerances. The value is a guess because the website listed on the label is wholesale only and required a login to see prices, so I tried to find similar items on the web.
Charming Barkers Large Black Oak – Value $9.99
This was a big hit with Nyx. The limbs that make up the arms move back and forth inside the main body. Of course she did eventually destroy it, but it lasted about three times longer than most toys (so 15 minutes instead of 5).
Beco Rope (2 knots) – Value $5.49
Nyx likes rope toys but this is far too small for a dog her size. I will pass it on to a neighbor.
Tucker’s Barkin’ Blends Freeze Dried Treats in Beef & Bacon (2.5 oz) – Value $8.49
More grain-free treats made in the USA! These contain only beef liver and bacon and are freeze dried. 2.5 ounces doesn’t seem like a lot but the bag is pretty big since freeze dried treats are not very dense.
You get two pictures of Nyx this month because I liked them both and couldn’t decide.
Verdict: I calculated a value of almost $38 for the April PawPack box. That is right at the cost of the box, give or take (since I did have to estimate a value and some of the items were on sale at the time I wrote the review, so some sale prices are quoted up above). Of course if you have a longer subscription, it’s a better deal.
This subscription is best for those who are interested in natural and organic dog products, especially if your dog is a bit smaller than mine (since the rope toy was not big enough for an 84-pound dog).
What do you think of the April 2016 PawPack box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
