Blockhead Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon– December 2016
Blockhead Box is a new subscription box from Fight4Them, which is an organization of dog lovers and combat athletes working to prevent dog fighting and animal cruelty. Expect chews, toys, and treats for your dog as well as clothing and other gear for dog owners. And feel good knowing that a portion of all proceeds to charities, rescues, and humane law enforcement! Toys and chews are designed especially for bully breeds and heavy chewers.
My dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler, so according to some lists (and insurance companies), she is a bully breed. When I lived in my condo, her best friends were bully breeds. And there have been lots of bully breeds in my family in the past including boxers, English bulldogs, and a Bull Mastiff, so this box was definitely of interest to me both in terms of products and the causes it supports.
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 review is of the Large Dog, $35.95 a month, box. Nyx weighs about 90 pounds right now.

The box came with this card.
Etta Says Premium 12” Duck Chew – Value $2.99
We’re familiar with this brand from Barkbox. I like getting edibles made from unusual proteins like duck as these are usually better for dogs with food intolerances.
Pet Qwerks Antler (Peanut Butter Flavor, Size XL) – Value $7.46
We’ve gotten one of these before in another box (maybe Bullymake Box?) and Nyx thinks they are AWESOME. And the flavoring doesn’t aggravate her IBD. This held up for quite awhile, too. (Actually, she will be able to have it again one of these days.)
Sodapup Crazy Bounce (Large, Orange) – Value $12.97
Sodapup Can (Large, Black) – Value $14.99
We’re familiar with this brand (and these products) from Bullymake Box. They are tough. Nyx has been more interested in fetch lately, and she finally seems to understand it, so the crazy bounce toy can be put to good use. I will spread a little of her wet food inside the can and she will find it endlessly fascinating.
Seasonal Kerchief – Value $3.57
I like how the green stands out against Nyx’s fur! And this was big enough for a Rottie neck.
Reindeer Poop – Value $4?
Blockhead Box often contains a treat from a small or independent maker. Unfortunately, this bag burst during shipping and the treats were all over the inside of the bag (hence the paper towel and not appearing in the first photo of the items). It is probably still fine to give to a dog (most of which will gladly eat off the floor!), but there wasn’t an ingredients list, so unfortunately, Nyx won’t be able to have them. (There was no brand information on the package and I couldn’t find an obvious match online, so the value is an estimate.)
Nyx in the kerchief. She doesn’t understand sitting still for the camera (you mean you’re not supposed to lick it?) so my husband is holding her in place.
Some of my favorite pictures of Nyx are her with really basic toys like stick-shaped ones and bones. I took a couple dozen but limited myself to sharing these few!
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $46 for the December Blockhead Box. That’s a great value for this box. Plus, I thought the toys were definitely tough and appropriate for heavy chewers, and Nyx LOVES the antler chew. I also think it’s great that most, if not all, of the items, are currently still in production (so you can buy another one if you want to).
