Blockhead Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon– November 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 information card.
Flavorit Sweet Potato Bone – Value $11.99
This had a super strong scent (almost maple-like). I did not even need to put anything on it and Nyx loved it. (She loves everything, to be fair.) It also did not aggravate her IBD so that was a nice bonus. And she has not damaged it yet!
Smokehouse Pet Products Pork Skin (1 oz) – Value $1.75
These are made in the USA by slow-roasting and are 100% digestible. They are also supposedly safer than rawhide and generally get good reviews on Chewy.com.
Nyx can’t have pork, but luckily there was another willing tester available…
Nylabone Healthy Edibles Wild with Real Bison (4.9 oz) – Value $3.99
I gave Nyx one of these once, before her IBD diagnosis, and she ate the whole thing in an hour. So, my advice is to supervise your dog closely and take it away after a few minutes. But, it should be enjoyable and these can (eventually) be fully consumed.
Turkey Dog Cookie – Value $3?
There was no brand here so the value is an estimate. This box arrived before Thanksgiving. I passed this along to a neighbor since I am not sure what the ingredients are and Nyx has dietary issues.
(This photo turned out the best of all the photos I took of these. Sorry for the cat head. I think Sneaky wanted the cookie.)
JW Pet Company iSqueak Bouncing Baseball – Value $5.75
We have lots of JW Pet Company rubber toys. They’re quite durable and Nyx gets a kick out of the squeaking sound. (The squeakers are much harder to disable than with other toys, too!)
Petsafe Squeak ‘n Treat Booya – Value $12.99
This is a new product for us. It dispenses treats AND squeaks. Nyx has been playing fetch with it a little bit in the living room and it seems to be holding up pretty well so far.
You wouldn’t think a simple bone chew toy would be interesting to photograph, but Nyx really has a good time with these things!
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $39.47 for the November Blockhead Box. That is a few dollars over the cost of the box, which is a good value for currently-in-production (non closeout) dog toys and treats. What I like about this subscription is that the toys are size appropriate and very durable, both key when you have a destructive Rottweiler!
