Pet Treater Subscription Box Review – January 2016


Pet Treater is a subscription box for dogs.  Select from small (up to 20 pounds), medium (21-50 pounds), and large (51+ pounds).  This review is for a large dog box.  My dog Nyx, a Rottweiler, is about 84 pounds right now.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


Here’s a first look at the contents.

The Subscription Box: Pet Treater

The Cost: $24.99 per month on a month-to-month plan, with better deals for longer subscriptions.  Tennessee residents will have to pay 9.5% sales tax.

The Products: Treats, toys, and helpful items for dog owners (leashes, poop bags, grooming supplies, etc.).

Ships to: US (free)

There was no information card in this box, but it did include a letter addressed to Nyx!


Nylabone Fun ‘n’ Fit Treat Holder Wobbler – Value $9.99

I’ve seen a lot of Nylabone products in Pet Treater boxes.  This specific one is a little hard to find except from third party sellers on Amazon.  It seems like a pretty sturdy item.  The only thing that bugs me a bit is that Pet Treater often sends out toys like this without the treats that are designed to go in them.  So if you want to use the toy as intended, you have to go and spend more money to be able to do so.

Nerf Crunchable Football (6 inches) – Value $9.99

This style doesn’t appear to be part of the current Nerf product line so I’ve linked to something similar.  Nyx was able to break some of the rubber ridges, but it did take her awhile to do so!


Unique Petz Treat Launcher – Value $14.99

Nyx has torn ligaments in both knees so I don’t want to encourage her to go running after treats (most of which she can’t eat anyway).  I am going to experiment by using this for the cats.  If it ends up terrifying the cats, I’ll send it to my parents who have a fenced-in backyard and two dogs who require lots of exercise.

Your Pet Chef No Guilt Treats (3 oz) – Value $7.50

These are gluten and grain free and made in the USA.  They are dehydrated at low temperatures so they are raw.  What is kind of cool about these is you can have the company custom make you treats with your choice of proteins (including, potentially, proteins that are not in the drop-down list on the product page).


Exclusively Dog Jerkeez Pizza Flavor Chewy Dog Treats (7 oz, 2 packages) – Value $13.98

It’s a little weird to get two of the same treat bag in a dog box, but from what I can tell, this is current packaging and these are good until December of this year.  These are made in the USA and the first ingredient is chicken.


Zanies Americana Ball and Rope Tug, Blue – Value $8.99

I lost the tag for this one but managed to locate what I think is the correct item (in a different color) online.  Nyx really enjoyed this, as you will see below.  It lasted under 10 minutes, of course, but that is the usual for Nyx and plush toys.

Salad-to-Go Salad Shaker – Value $2.81

Every month, Pet Treater includes an item for people.  These are pretty random.  This month, it was a salad-to-go cup.  These are apparently designed as trade show giveaways (companies can order in bulk and have their logos printed on the side).  This one did not have a logo on it.


They included a card with a spoiler for the February box.  This is kind of a weird spoiler for a dog subscription box…


And of course, no dog box review would be complete without a goofy picture of Nyx!

Verdict: I calculated a value of $68.25 for the January Pet Treater dog subscription box.  This is keeping pretty close to their monthly average and is quite a bit over the cost of the box.  Once again, a lot of the items were only available from third-party sellers on Amazon and/or were discontinued by their manufacturers, so you have to keep that in mind when subscribing.  For a toy, it probably doesn’t matter.  And the treats had quite a few months of shelf life left.  I do like (a lot) that the toys were size appropriate for Nyx, since we’ve been having some trouble with that lately from other dog boxes.

What do you think of the January 2016 Pet Treater box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. yay Nyx!

  2. Just a tip for those treat toy combo items. One of the best things about those toys is picking treats that your own dogs love – you don’t need to use the treats branded for that item.

    I used to work with digs and filled about a bajillion of the traditional Kongs and we rarely used just the specific branded treats. For instance with the traditional Kong type items instead of the pricey Kong filling you can use peanut butter or pumpkin puree (or whatever is a similar consistency that works for ypur pet’s diet) for the main filling and stuff it with any smaller bits of treats (I’ve used Bil Jac’s training pieces, Blue Buffalo treats, broken up Begin Strips, broken up Puperoni, broken up dog biscuits, Cheerios and other treats – always depends on dog’s diet).

    For the treat toys that have small openings that come out as the toy is rolled just use treats small enough to come out of the openings but not so tiny that that all fall out at once.

  3. I want to see pictures of the cats going after treats shot from the machine haha!

  4. That’s the spoiler item for next months Peaches and Petals box item also I think.

    • I wonder if they stuck those cards in the Pet Treater boxes by accident? Both subs are from the same company. It does seem like much more of a Peaches & Petals item.

      • I think you’re right, was a probably a mistake due to the same company. I didn’t have one in my Pet Treater January box, but there was one in my Peaches & Petals box. I’ve never seen Pet Treater give a ‘spoiler’. They include a card for sharing your pet’s picture with one of their toys tho.

      • And I think I didn’t get that card about the dog picture this time. Guess someone grabbed from the wrong stack when they were packing my box.
