Each month, Loot Crate will release a theme that spans across their Core Crate, Loot Pets, Loot Wear, and Loot Crate DX. This month’s theme was Speed.

Every month, they include a collar charm that follows the theme. This month’s collar charm mirror’s the Loot Crate pin.

Stark Motor Racing Dog Shirt – Value $10?

This month, they’ve moved away from including both human and dog shirts. But, they also moved back to matching the shirt from the month’s Loot Crate.

Buckles loves a good photoshoot. This month, the shirt fit him well!

Mach-3 Munchies – Value $10?

The treats of the month were shaped like little jets. These treats are grain and gluten-free, and made in the USA. They are beef treats and Buckles loves them (no surprise there).

X-Tire Ball – Value $7 on Amazon

There were two toys this month – which I feel is a better value than a human shirt. The first toy is this X-Tire ball. At the center of this is a jingle ball – they’re really rugged as well. Unfortunately, Buckles doesn’t play with plastic/rubber toys, so this will be gifted.

Doggie Darts – Value $10 on Amazon

The second is also a plastic toy – although it’s a soft plastic. These are inspired by lawn darts, and while they are larger, would still work for our 15-pound dog – they’re small enough to pick up.

Verdict: We love the shirt and treats this month – but were left without usable toys, so it definitely feels like a down month for me. Overall, I’m glad they went back to two toys in each box, the shirts were fun, but in the end, it started to feel like much less value for the pup. While receiving two toys is great, two hard plastic/rubber toys isn’t great for our dog, who prefers soft plush toys – maybe there could be an option to choose the type of toy in the future?

What did you think of the Loot Pets “Speed” box?

  1. Is it a perment thing not to include a human matching shirt? I was going to order the oct crate because we love all things horror. I already get the standard loot crate but I wanted to get two human shirts that were both themed simular.

  2. I was very disappointed this month. I loved the matching shirts and am bummed that Loot Pets decided to stop including a human shirt. I ordered Loot Crate this month just to get the matching shirt. I don’t think I will be doing that again.
    My dogs are 7 and 10 pounds. The tire toy was too big and the bell is very annoying. The lawn dart is softer and one of my dogs just wants to chew it so I guess that’s better than it being completely unusable. I think one of the toys needs to be a plushie OR they need start having different toy options for different size dogs.

  3. I agree this crate was kinda disappointing. The tire bell is hard and the bell just scares my jack russel who usually loves all things loud and obnoxious . I think he would chew on it but the smell is so of putting he wont even touch it. The lawn dart doesn’t throw like a dart and is very large. Wish at least if the don’t have matching shirts they would make it diff from lootcrate one and more dog themed. It would be nice if they had long skinny toys so both large and small dogs could play. At least there treats are always on point and even smell good to people so pup was happy.

  4. Can you please tell me what size tee you usually order for Buckles? I want to order the October crate for mine and it will be my first time getting it so I have no idea what size to get my dog. She’s about the same size as he is but a little on the chunky side, I think she weighs about 19 lbs even though she should just be about 14 or 15.

    • He’s in a medium in these pictures – it fits him really well.

      • Thank you!

  5. Even if Buckles doesn’t like the toys or the treats, this subscription is always worth it to me because of that adorable tee!!
