So – the first thing to notice is that they’ve done away with the mini magazine for Loot Pets. It’s been replaced by these trading cards that display each item in your box. It’s a cool idea and makes every item in the box a bit more collectible.

This is the themed 20-sided dice shield charm for your dog’s collar.

The theme was Quest this month, and for Loot Pets, they enhanced it to be Quest for Bacon!

Makin’ Bacon Pancakes Dog and Human shirts – Value $10 each?

This marks the first month where they’ve included both shirt variations – and I think it’s a good idea! This will happen from now on.

Now that’s stuck in your head for the rest of the day! Can’t beat the remix version.

Loot Pets Subscription Box Review + Coupon April 2016 - bacon toy

Bacon Plush Toy – Value $11.44 on Amazon

This month’s toy was great! This is a pretty large dog toy, but thin enough where Buckles could enjoy tossing it around. It has a squeaker, too, which Buckles was pretty happy about.

He was very, very excited to get to play with his bacon toy! Action shot!

Questrips Beefy Treats – Value $10?

This month’s exclusive treats were Questrips! These are made to be like beef jerky – Buckles approves.

He gobbled his Questrip up pretty quickly!

Loot Pets Subscription Box Review + Coupon April 2016 - battlepug

Battlepug Volume 1 – Value $8-10?

I based the value on this according to the Amazon price for the hardcover. I was surprised to see a comic inside the box – this is the first month with this many human items (I can’t complain, but Buckles could).

From Amazon:

The epic tale of blood and drool begins here! Join Molly and her dogs Mingo and Colfax, as she recounts the legend of “The Warrior and the Battlepug” – a tale of a fearless barbarian, his trusty and freakishly large pug, and evil baby harp seals. This volume collects the first year ofMike Norton’s Battlepug – the perfect opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the fan-favorite webcomic by Mike Norton, Allen Passalaqua, and Crank!

Here’s a look at the artistic style of the comic – It looks like a fun read!

Verdict: Buckles and I had fun unboxing this month’s box! I was really excited to see how this month would change with the addition of the human shirt to the mix. There were still 5 items this month, like last month, but two were dedicated to the dog owners. I think I like this change and the dog still has plenty to play around with. One thing I do know, this is one of the boxes that our dog gets overly excited for each month, so that’s a win, too!

What did you think of the April Loot Pets? Do you like the new format?

  1. Omg! Them including the matching shirt for the human is a major selling point! If they do that every box I will definitely sign up, but is it every box? Or was it just this one?

    • Moving forward every box will include a matching wearable for humans and their dog! 🙂

  2. BEWARE IF YOU HAVE A LARGE DOG.
    I was so stoked for this box, but my dog is an 80lb “German Shepherd” sized mutt, and even though I selected the xxxl,which is supposed to fit a great Dane on their fit chart, it was too small by at least two sizes.
    Also, the bacon toy we got had a hole because of skipped stitches. It has crinkle instead of a squeaker, and the packaging emhasizes “durable stitching”! Lol.
    They’re sending a replacement toy, but as for the shirt just a 5$ refund. Which is a little silly. Bummed that the “pet” items for this pet box were a major disappointment.,because this is a fun box.

    • I would pretty much never count on sized clothing items working for a large breed…we can’t even get the bandanas we sometimes receive in other boxes to fit around Nyx’s massive Rottweiler neck.

  3. Aw, I love the anticipation tail wag shot. These reviews are the best. Can we get Buckles in every review?

    Also a huge fan of the Bacon Pancake remix!

  4. Buckles is adorable!

    And I am super jealous of that shirt!

  5. That Buckles is just adorable!! My pampered pup saw this review and now he must have this subscription too lol!

  6. Yay! Buckles!
    That’s nice they include both shirts so you don’t have to sub to both boxes to get matching shirts, but then there’s less dog items in this box now… doesn’t matter to me bc I just read Loot Pet reviews to see Buckles 🙂

    • Thanks for the Buckles love! 🙂
