PawPack Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 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).
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.)

The box came with this information card.
Multipet Halloween Dog Toy (spider with ropes) – Retail Value $13.88 (found on sale for $9.95)
We received one of these in a different shape in another dog subscription box this month and Nyx destroyed that one in a minute or two, but this one is holding up better. This is size-appropriate for a large dog, too.
Vegalicious Pumpkin Wedges (5.6 oz) – Retail Value $25 (found on sale for $17.25)
These are just dehydrated pumpkin rings. Nyx does fine with pumpkin so I have let her have a few of these. She thinks they are chew toys and it took her awhile to realize she could eat them. OF COURSE, the treats Nyx can have end up being $20 a bag. OF COURSE. (On the other hand, her food is $3.50 a can and she eats four cans a day so I am already spending $500 a month on dog food, so what difference does $20 more make?)
Here is a better look at one of the rings.
Wet Noses Organic Kaddoo Fruit Treat for Dogs (pumpkin/apple/peanut butter, 0.2 oz) – Retail Value $2.99
This is another thing I think Nyx will be able to have; the only ingredients are apple puree, pumpkin puree, and ground peanuts. However, since I had just given her the pumpkin rings, we have to wait a few days to make sure those don’t mess with her system before trying a new treat. Definitely happy to get at least two items Nyx can probably eat in a single dog box, though.
Sorcery Stix (6 oz) – Retail Value $8.99?
These are basically the same thing as the “Bone Polish” from this month’s Pet GiftBox, but with a different label. So here is what I said about those: These are green, dental chew-style treats. They are Pet GiftBox branded so I had to estimate the value (they offer some of their private label items in boxes, but not for sale in their shop). I estimated a value based on a similar size of Greenies. They also have similar ingredients to Greenies. Also based on Greenies size information, these are probably too small for an 87-pound dog.
Lulubelles Pupsavers Toy – Value $8.99
This is a squeaky plush toy but the fabric is reinforced and so far, Nyx hasn’t been able to destroy it. She does like it quite a bit though, and she’s been pretty violent with it so I guess it is well made.
Here are some shots of Nyx with the cheeseburger toy and a bonus shot of her tugging on one of the pumpkin wedges.
Verdict: I calculated a retail value of about $60 for the October PawPack ($48.17 with sales prices). This is a great value for this subscription! While we weren’t able to use the dental chews, there were two treats Nyx can actually try to balance that out, and the toys were pretty durable, so most of the box was a huge success. It’s rare I can give Nyx this many items from one dog subscription with her IBD so I know she was happy as well.
