PawPack Subscription Box Review + Coupon – June 2017
PawPack is a subscription box for dogs. They are now owned by Pet GiftBox, and they’ve recently undergone a bit of rebranding. Treats are still all-natural and premium, but this box is now marketed more towards heavy chewers (like my dog!). For reference, my dog is a Rottweiler, who currently weighs about 87 pounds.
This is a review of the large (51+ pound) dog box ($31.5o per month).
PawPack sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Benji’s Farm Shiny Skin/Nail/Coat Treats, 7 oz, peanut butter– Value $12
These have pea flour as the main starch/protein source. I am not sure if pea is OK for Nyx or not, but I am going to try a little bit of one of these on her and see. There is no animal protein or grain in these (for us, that’s a good thing). This has ingredients that are supposed to support skin, hair, and coat health, and Nyx could definitely do with some support there. (She is immune suppressed and got demodectic mange last year. Thankfully that was all cleared up with some Simparica and baths with medicated shampoo, but she still has dry skin issues due to being on prednisolone for her IBD. Anyway, any little bit of help we can get is appreciated.)
Havepaws Jerky Chips in Talkin Turkey, 4 oz – Value $8.99
I’ve been seeing this brand some in subscription boxes this year. It is grain free and has a single protein plus some vitamins. This is made in the USA from turkey sourced in the USA, which is really important to look for when it comes to pet treats (for safety reasons).
Barkworthies Lamb Ribs – Value $1.39
Single ingredient treats are always great for dogs with food issues. I suspect this would be hard to get away from Nyx so I need to find another lamb-based treat first to see if she can handle lamb before I let her go to town on this. (So far, venison and chickpeas are on the OK list!)
Pet Qwerks Animal Sounds Babble Ball – Value $5.80
We have 3 of these now but that is totally OK. (When the battery runs out, it is cheaper to get a new one than to replace the battery. Be sure to recycle with other e-waste!) This is the funniest dog toy ever. Nyx just tries to chew on it, but it is a hard plastic she is not able to break. We keep one on our mantel, and it goes off whenever there is a loud noise (sometimes Nyx barking, or particularly loud thunder). This makes about 20 different animal sounds at random. So, like, Nyx will bark and then you’ll hear a cat meow or something. Nyx tilts her head and gets this look of obvious interest on her face. Anyway, we love these.
Jolly Pets Flathead Medium Duck – Value $8.99
This is a stuffing-free toy, and Nyx thought it was a lot of fun. It was also fairly durable–she’ll get to play with it a second time, and that is the mark of a good toy for us.
Here is Nyx with the duck toy. I love the faces she makes when she plays with toys.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $37.17 for the June PawPack. That is a good value for a natural treat/heavy chewer dog box. We got a toy we already loved, a new durable toy, and a few treats that may actually be safe to give to Nyx (we introduce new treats VERY slowly to her due to her digestive issues, so it will be awhile before she can try everything).
