Wigglebutt Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon- November 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). 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.)
This review is of the Large, Ruff, $29.95 a month, box.

There was an information card detailing the items in the box. There was also a card asking you to share photos of your box on social media.
Seasonal Kerchief – Value $3?
You will get a seasonal kerchief in each Wigglebutt Box. This is size XL and it does fit Nyx (see her modeling it below).
Amazon Basics Dog Waste Bags (1 roll) – Value $0.25
I discovered Amazon Basics dog waste bags through Wigglebutt Box and actually bought a case of 900 of them not too long ago. They’re some of the least expensive dog waste bags out there, but they are high quality and who really wants to spend a lot of money on something that’s used to pick up dog poop?
Stemless Silicone Wine Glass – Value $5?
I can’t find this exact item online (there are a LOT of t-shirts with this saying, though…) so I am estimating based on similar items. You’ll usually get something in Wigglebutt Box designed for dog-loving humans. Non-breakable drinkware is a good bet for a home with a large dog!
Merrick Thanksgiving Day Dinner Gourmet Sausage Treat (1.23 oz x 2) – Value $3.58
Merrick dog treats are made from USA, Australian, and New Zealand meats and this particular product is free of wheat, corn, and soy. It’s also seasonal (this box arrived well in advance of Thanksgiving). And I find this brand to be high quality, in general.
Duke’s Pet Products Dog Brush – Value $1.21
I could only find these in wholesale lots. You are not really going to buy 240 of these at once, I think. Anyway, this is a little small for Nyx but I might try using it for one of the cats. Monkey needs constant grooming.
Multipet Loofa Dog Toy – Value $4.74
We got one of these last month in another dog subscription box (sorry, I forget which one). Nyx loves these although they are probably not the best toys for heavy chewers. Definitely supervise your dog carefully!
Zippypaws iPooch – Value $7.99
Nyx thought this was pretty awesome (see below). Lately, I feel the quality of Zippypaws toys is improving; Nyx is not as easily able to destroy them as she used to be. So I am always happy to see them!
Zuke’s Z-Bone Dental Chew in Clean Carrot Crisp (2.5 oz) – Value $0.67
This is a dental treat that has other health benefits as well – it has turmeric, which has anti-inflammatory properties, plus vitamin A/beta carotene from the carrots, and it uses natural ingredients and extracts like parsley, fennel, alfalfa, and rosemary to freshen the breath.
Wet Noses Grain Free Dog Treats w/Peas and Carrots (1.5 oz) – Value $1.99
These are free from wheat, corn, soy, eggs, dairy, and animal proteins, so they are great for dogs with allergies and food sensitivities. They are made in the USA, as well!
Naturally, in every picture, Nyx decided to show the BACK of the toy, which is black. Also, she still doesn’t get posing for the camera in the bandana. Nevertheless, she had a lot of fun with the cell phone toy and that is what counts!
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $28.43 for this month’s Wigglebutt Box. I think the actual retail value could be higher because a few of the items were hard to locate online and I had to estimate, plus a few of the prices above are Chewy.com sale prices. The total is about 20% below the cost of the box, but I think this was just an off month – usually the value of this subscription is about $10 more. One nice thing was that there were many lower value items, so if one thing doesn’t work for you, you may still find some value in the rest of the box. The treats were high quality and low on allergens, for the most part, and the iPooch toy was a particular highlight.
