Pet Treater Dog Box Review + Coupon – September 2016

Pet Treater is a subscription box for dogs. Select from small (up to 20 pounds), medium (21-50 pounds), and large (51+ pounds). This review is of the Large Dog Size, $24.99 a month, box. My dog Nyx, a Rottweiler, is about 84 pounds right now.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This box included a letter addressed to Nyx!



There was also a card with a photo of a dog wearing the bowtie from last month and a theme spoiler for next month.


And ANOTHER gift code for Hello Fresh. Is there anyone who doesn’t have enough of these to paper the walls in a small bathroom by now?


Emmy’s Gourmet Canine Creations Guitar – Value $1.35

Pet Treater has been including a lot of treats from Emmy’s lately. This one is not on their site, but it is an individual treat so I have linked to similar items and used the prices from those. I like that Pet Treater is getting some custom items from a small business; the guitar works with the “Elvis” box theme, too!

Elvis Lives “All Shook Up” Candle – Value $3.60

This was originally part of a set of 5 (linked to above). There is a review of one on Amazon where it appears that the burning candle got hot and left a black circle on some furniture, so be cautious with this. (The “For Your Human” sticker was, of course, covering the candle burning instructions on the bottom…)


Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Launcher (18” long) – Value $8.30

This is supposed to launch tennis balls up to 250 feet. There are two things preventing Nyx from getting to play with this. (1) She has to play inside only since she is immune-suppressed, and it is not a good idea to try to launch anything like that in the house (which is certainly not 250 feet long, in any case) and (2) Nyx loves tennis balls, but she doesn’t understand fetch. She understands “chase and then bring it only partway back and chew on it and don’t let anyone take it away from you.” So this will probably be passed on to someone else.

Puppycake Cheesecake Mix for Dogs in Peanut Butter Flavor (11 oz) – Value $7.99

This is grain free, which is wonderful. It also doesn’t have any meat proteins (except gelatin), though it does have dairy. All you do to prepare it is add hot water, mix up, and refrigerate.


Furimals Warming and Cooling Pet Mat (22.25 x 12 x 1.5 in) – Value $17.99

This has an internal part that can be heated in the microwave or chilled in the freezer/refrigerator (so kind of like those Pyrex food transportation containers). I am pretty sure Nyx would eat this if I tried to give it to her (we’ve been through 2 or 3 beds at this point so I stopped trying). This may work better for less destructive dogs.


Here is the unfolded mat. It is also pretty small (way too small for Nyx) so I have put it under a sunny window for the cats to enjoy.


Elvis Presley Pet Collection Blue Suede Shoe – Value $14.99

This was an appropriately-sized plush toy. Of course it didn’t last long with Nyx (see below). You will get a lot of plush toys from Pet Treater and there is no “heavy chewer” option, so just keep that in mind if you are thinking of subscribing.

Exclusively Dog Smores Flavor Sandwich Cremes (8 oz) – Value $4.85

These are vegetarian but has quite a lot of sugar and should definitely be fed to your dog only sparingly, as a treat. This does have wheat flour and graham flour (which is wheat-based) as well as some soy and dairy, so it may not be the best for dogs with allergies.




Here is Nyx with the shoe toy. You may notice some areas where she has lost fur on her front paw and nose. These are a result of her Cushing’s disease and we are working to reduce her prednisone dose and hopefully reverse the hair loss. Her next vet appointment about this issue is October 1!

Verdict: I calculated a value of around $59 for the September Pet Treater dog subscription box. I would say this value is about average for Pet Treater, and that the mix of contents is also about what you ought to expect from this subscription. I do think they’re doing better with the treats lately as they are either new (the Emmy’s cookie) or currently in production and not close to expiration. The toys are generally size-appropriate, although the dog supplies/extra dog items (in this case, the mat) will not always be. If you are thinking about this one, I’d suggest going back through some of the past reviews, because this subscription is pretty consistent in what it offers from month to month.

What do you think of the September 2016 Pet Treater box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

Ragan stumbled across My Subscription Addiction in late 2013 and immediately subscribed to way too many beauty boxes. She’s now focused on boxes for her cats and dog, vegan/vegetarian food boxes, and craft subscriptions (and she didn’t give up beauty boxes entirely).

  1. This is only Chewys 2nd box from pet treater…be is right around the 20 pound mark…and although he is a rough and tumble little boy, he was completely unexcited with this box…the slipper, his mouth isn’t big enough to grab onto it. He received a rubbery purple hippo, that I like more than he does, while you got the ball fetcher, I would have loved that for him instead as we have a giant yard, but how do they know when they pack these boxes. The cookies well , he just doesn’t like them and the same with the cheesecake. But if you give him regular cheese, he will haunt you for hours for more. The heat/chill mat….all he wanted to do was chew on the bags that you either heat or chill, so I put that away before he punctured the bags, and wow it’s super small even for him…I can see a cat totally loving that in a sunny spot, gonna give that away to someone who can use it!

    Hoping the next box won’t be a “dud” like this one was…it was funny because he recognized the box and knew it was for him right away, he was all excited. It was so sad to see him pouting in the matter of minutes after he checked out his “loot”, complete with heavy sighs and all…I know he is only a little spoiled…

    Thanks for the warning about the candle. Better safe than sorry!

  2. My mom loooooooves Elvis the candle would be awesome if somebody wants to swap please post for swap or hit me up. THANKs
