This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

pupjoy-february-2017-box

Pupjoy is a fully customizable subscription box for dogs. Treats are made in the U.S., often from smaller or artisan producers. You can select a box for one or multiple dogs, a box containing treats only, toys and accessories only or all three categories of items. Other choices include grain free, protein sensitive, and organic, toy preferences, and dog size.

My helper strikes again…

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This is a review of Grande-sized Natural, $39 a month box, which includes grain free treats and “inquisitive”-durable toys (that is, designed for dogs who destroy soft toys). The size selected was “large,” which is 50-100 pounds. (My dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler who weighs about 90 pounds right now.)

There’s not a traditional information card for this box, but they provide a website link where you can find more info about the box contents.

pupjoy-february-2017-ball

Ruffdawg Ball (XL) – Value $19.88

Wow, that is one expensive ball. (Yes, it’s an Amazon link, but it’s not a third party seller at this time/price.) However, it’s made of solid rubber and 100% made in the USA. Nyx’s knees are better now (she had torn ligaments in both of them in the past) so we have been experimenting by playing a little fetch in the living room and this ball is pretty good for that. Also, she likes to chew on it.

Givepet Campfire Feast in Salmon, Sweet Potato, and Blueberry (12 oz) – Value $10.95

The main protein in this is salmon and it is grain free. There are a lot of plant-based ingredients in here including things like tomato pomace and blueberry pomace that will be good sources of antioxidants and vitamins and fiber. These are made in the USA and the brand is cool, too – for every bag of treats you buy, they donate treats to shelter dogs.

pupjoy-february-2017-frog

Simply Fido Organic Pet Toy Collection Stuffless Frog – Value $11.99

This toy doesn’t have stuffing (yay) and is made from eco-friendly materials. However, it is far too small to give to a dog Nyx’s size, so I will pass it along to someone with a smaller dog.

Maggie’s Macaroons Cocotherapy Coconut Lemoncello (4 oz) – Value $8.99

These are grain free and vegan so they should be great for dogs with digestive issues and allergies. They have lots of healthful fatty acids and fiber and are not quite as soft as the macaroons with similar ingredients sold for human consumption. (Also they are made in the USA.)

pupjoy-february-2017-lamb

Clear Conscience Pet Lamb Airy Bites (2.8 oz) – Value $9.95

These are slow cooked bits of lung from pasture-raised lambs. They have a few vegetables as well, but they are grain free. I like the single protein source and the fact that it is not chicken, beef, pork, etc. Lamb often works for dogs with digestive issues. These are also made in the USA and are organic.

Animatwists Classic Set – Value $14.28

This is a modular toy where you can add or remove parts to maintain your dog’s interest. It is really hard to take this apart – I wanted to take out the part with the chew before giving it to Nyx (the chew is dairy-based and I wasn’t sure it would work with her IBD) and wow, was that difficult. On the plus side, at least your dog shouldn’t be able to take it apart, either. The plastic (?) part is very tough and stands up to heavy chewing.

Here is Nyx with the Animatwists toy. I removed the chew/treat module because of her IBD, but she enjoyed this a lot anyway. She kept trying to hide it from me.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $76.04 for the February Pupjoy Box. That is a really, really good value for a dog subscription box consisting of currently-in-production toys and treats, especially considering the degree of customization available with this box. Although one toy was too small, even without the value of that toy included, this box comes out well over the month-to-month cost of the subscription. Overall, I was very impressed with this month’s Pupjoy!

What do you think of the February 2017 Pupjoy? Do you subscribe to any dog boxes?

  1. What does Nyx think of Monkey Jr??

    • Well, whenever Angus is bothering Sneaky, there is a lot of hissing. And Nyx has to go investigate. It usually ends with her chasing Angus while he runs away at a high rate of speed (up the stairs, where Nyx won’t follow). But at least it gives Sneaky some relief.

  2. Angus is going to be famous in no time if he keeps photobombing all of your reviews! Hopefully he’s getting along with all of your other kitties now.

    • For some reason, Sneaky REALLY hates him. Hopefully she will get over that. For now, the best strategy seems to be to keep him distracted.

      On the other hand, we have been calling him “Monkey Jr.” because he is buddies with Monkey and is showing a very similar personality.

  3. Best dog box I’ve seen so far for quality and price. I’m def. putting it on my wishlist. I’m currently going through subs to add and subs to cancel. This will be on the add list for sure. My babies will love this treats and toys. 😛

  4. I love seeing Nyx with the toys!!! And what a great value for this box.
