PupCrate Dog Subscription Box Review + Coupon- December 2016


PupCrate is a subscription box for dogs. They only send treats that are made in the USA. Choose from a small dog box (0-20 pounds), a medium dog box (20-50 pounds), and a large dog box (50+ pounds).


PupCrate kindly sent us this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Large Size, $29.95 a month, box. (My dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler who weighs about 84 pounds right now.)

Included was a card with more information about the items in the box.


Charming Christmas Balloons “Monkey” (L) – Value $7.99

This didn’t last long but Nyx sure had fun for a little while. This is made from latex and was not wrapped separately so be careful handling things from the box if you have a latex allergy. There are actually quite a few toys in this line, with many of the non-Christmas ones available at Target.

Frisco Dog Waste Bags (1 roll) – Value $0.75

PupCrate pretty much always includes a roll of dog waste bags. Lately, it has been this Frisco brand. They’re not super exciting or anything, but it is a type of product I need, so I am happy to get them.


Lulubelles by Huxley and Kent Pow-er Plush Twisted Mint (red, LG) – Value $12

Nyx thought this was great, and it was more durable than I would have expected. I can’t ask for more than that!

Pearhead Pawprints Ornament – Value $9.95

Of course, the people at PupCrate wouldn’t know this, but this thing makes me really sad. When my last dog died (in 2012), the vet’s office took an impression of her paw in plaster and gave it to me. So I can’t look at these things without that association. I will pass this on to someone else (preferably someone who keeps a Christmas tree in the house during the holidays).


Polkadog Treats Wonder Nuggets with Peanut Butter (8 oz) – Value $7.95

These are made in Massachusetts and are free of wheat, corn, and soy. (They do have barley flour and oats, so they’re not grain free. However, they don’t have animal protein, so they will be good for a lot of dogs with allergies.)

Holiday Mini Whoopie Pie by Preppy Puppy (2 count) – Value $2?

You can’t view items on the Preppy Puppy site without having a wholesale login so this value is an estimate. I’ll pass them along to someone whose dog doesn’t have food issues since I have no idea what’s in them.



It didn’t take too long before Nyx tried to start pulling the ends off of this, but she wasn’t able to do so in the few minutes I let her have the toy. She’ll be able to play with this one again!

Verdict: I calculated a value of $40.64 for the December PupCrate. That is a really good value for this box, one of the best I’ve seen. Nyx thought the toys were pretty awesome and the box did a great job at sticking to the holiday theme (I did get it before Christmas).

What do you think of the December 2016 PupCrate dog subscription box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
