The box came with this information card.  This month, they partnered with Dog for Dog, a company that donates a product to dogs in need for every product purchased.


Pet Gift Box T-Shirt – Value $10 (?)

I am in need of some new t-shirts for sleeping and hanging out around the house and this will do quite nicely.


Dog for Dog Retrieval Stick – Value $7 (?)

Dog for Dog isn’t yet selling toys on their site so I guess this is part of a new product line.  Nyx thought this was pretty awesome although there was a weak spot where the squeaker poked against the outer coating.  She had a hole in that in no time.

Dog for Dog Stuff-a-Ball Treat Toy – Value $5 (?)

Nyx can’t have most treats do to her IBD but I may freeze some small bits of her regular food (which is canned) and stick them in here.


Dog for Dog Bungee Dog – Value $12 (?)

This value is also just a guess.  Nyx hasn’t had this yet (she only gets to destroy one toy per day) but I fully expect her to love it.  And it is size-appropriate, which is nice.


Dog for Dog Dogstreat with Duck Minis (7 oz) – Value $7.99

The only protein in here is duck and there are no byproducts, which is awesome.  These minis would be good for training treats if you have a larger dog.  These are made in the USA.

Dog for Dog Peanut Butter Dogsbar (1.41 oz) – Value $2.99

These are kind of high in sugar (first ingredient is brown rice syrup and third is blackstrap molasses) but they don’t contain any animal ingredients at all, so would be a good choice for dogs with allergies.  If you don’t want to order online, these seem to be available in PetSmart stores.

I was trying to take a photo of how much dog saliva was coating this thing and Nyx photobombed.  I like the look in her eyes.


And the toy after Nyx had a few minutes with it.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $45 for the April Pet GiftBox.  I did have to guess on a lot of the values, but even if I am off a little bit, that is more than the cost of the subscription and I thought it was a great variety of items (especially considering they were all from the same brand).  Nyx liked the toys and the treats are going to be suitable for a lot of dogs with allergies, which is wonderful.

What do you think of the April Pet GiftBox?  Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. I only received about half of the items that are in your box.
    I am writing customer service about this issue.
    It always rubs me the wrong way when I find out items aren’t dispersed fairly.

  2. This looks like a good box for April! I like that they partnered with Dog for Dog. What was the size on the t-shirt? I wonder how they do sized items like that.

  3. Great photo of Nyx eyeing the toy. Enjoy your reviews!

  4. Thanks for the review! I love reading yours since I have a large dog,too. Just curious, do NYX and the cats get along? Would love to see a pic of them all together. Our cat “tolerates” the dog; meanwhile the dog thinks they’re best buddies lol.

    • They get along all right. It helps that I got Nyx when she was three months old and barely bigger than the largest cat, so she has grown up with them. (They are all considerably older than she is.)

      I have a few pictures of individual cats with Nyx but it is hard to get them all together at the same time. Monkey seems to like her the most and Madison is cautious around her. Nyx knows better than to go after the cats because she has gotten swatted in the nose with claws a few times.

  5. Got the same box last month minus the t-shirt. That kind of rubs me the wrong way. They also still haven’t shipped this month (faq says by the 10th).

    • Post updated to reflect this is the April box. (I just received it in May.)

    • That happened to us too but since I upgraded the subscription box on April 30th, their computer system counted it for April’s box and not May’s. I contacted their customer service about it and they told me we can just keep both boxes and they won’t charge us for our June box. Just email them and let them know the issue, they were very apologetic about it and our friend’s pup benefited from their error.

  6. Do you know of a treat / chews only? We love pet boxes, we get Barkbox, but neither dog plays with toys so the toys always get donated. Seem a bit of a waste.

    • Unfortunately I’m kind of in the opposite situation. Nyx’s IBD means she can’t eat most of the treats she gets, but she will play with pretty much any toy.

      • Although now that I think of, Petite Fours was more treats and didn’t have a toy every month.

    • Pupjoy has a treats only option! I subbed for a few months and we were very happy with it. One time they sent a treat with garlic in the ingredients, so I emailed customer service to let them know this is toxic for dogs, and they sent a replacement immediately. They also let you pick from the following treat preferences: All Natural, Grain Sensitive, Protein Sensitive, or Organic.

  7. This is box is the same as the one we got for April. Are they repeating the theme this month?

    • Since the information card doesn’t say a month on it, it is possible they sent me a leftover April box to review.

  8. Too cute!! Give that toy back!!! Lol

  9. We take the dogs on 6-8 mile hikes where they go off leash so they do at least double and the dogsbars are great for that! They are basically like taking a cliff bar for yourself. When the dogs start to get a little tired we give them a few bites and they are off and zooming around again.
