Wigglebutt Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon- September 2016
Wigglebutt Box is a subscription box for dogs. Items are chosen based on your dog’s size (choose “small” at under 20 pounds, “medium” for dogs 20-50 pounds, and “large” for dogs over 50 pounds). This is a review for a “large” dog box; my dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler who currently weighs about 83. You can also specify how tough your dog is with his or her toys (“gentle/1,” “average/2,” or “ruff!/3”). For those of you who read my dog box reviews, you’ll know Nyx is in the “ruff!” category.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Included was an information card listing the items in the box. There was also a recipe for dog treats, which will make sense in the next photo.
Yellow Bandana w/Flowers (size XL) – Value $3 (?)
We get a lot of bandanas in subscription boxes. This one actually fit a big Rottie neck. Photo below!
Amazon Basics Dog Waste Bags (1 roll) – Value $0.25
After the last Wigglebutt Box I got, wherein I learned that Amazon makes dog waste bags, I purchased a box of 900 bags. They are cheaper than the cheapest ones from Petsmart but still functional. I’m happy to have more. (Nyx is on lots and lots of fiber for her IBD so we use, on average, 4 a day. Plus I scoop the cat litter boxes into these. So we go through a lot of them.)
Wilton Blue 3” Dog Bone Cookie Cutter – Value $4.70
Nyx can’t have homemade dog cookies due to her medical condition so I might just use this for non-dog-treat cookies. I have a large collection of cookie cutters, but none shaped like dog bones.
Zippy Paws Chocolate Donutz – Value $7.99
We’ve gotten one of these before in another box. Nyx loved it. But the photos below are new! I have been finding lately that the Zippy Paws toys are a little more durable than some other brands.
Spot Ethical Knotical Tuff Stick (10”) – Value $7.59
Nyx loves rope toys. She hasn’t played with this yet because we got SO MANY dog subscription boxes over the weekend. But I know she will enjoy it.
Newman’s Own Premium Dog Treats in Turkey and Sweet Potato (10 oz) – Value $3.77
I guess I am out of the loop because I didn’t realize this brand made dog treats. We buy some of their “human” products regularly (it is one of the only brands of hot salsa that our grocery store carries) and find them to be good quality. These are free of wheat, corn, artificial flavors and colors, and preservatives.
Smokehouse Pet Products Beef Rib Bone (6”) – Value $0.99
I think this is disgusting but of course the animals were highly interested. Nyx can’t have it at this time due to a medication adjustment but maybe someday (it is obviously grain free after all). Sneaky also REALLY wanted this.

And enjoying the donut toy.
Here is the donut toy after Nyx had it for awhile. It lasted longer than some other plushes (and thankfully there was no stuffing to pull out).
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $28.29 for this month’s Wigglebutt Box. That is low compared to the month-to-month cost of the subscription. The MSRP is probably a little higher since some of the prices above are sale prices and I did have to estimate for the bandana. However, the previous month I reviewed exceeded the cost of the subscription, so it may be that this one averages out over time. And don’t forget that you can use our MSA2016 coupon or purchase a longer-term subscription to save a bit more. I thought the selection of items this month was pretty good, with some low-allergen treats and tough toys.
