Wigglebutt Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon- April 2017
Wigglebutt Box is a subscription box for dogs. Items are chosen based on your dog’s size (choose “small” at under 20 pounds, “medium” for dogs 20-50 pounds, and “large” for dogs over 50 pounds). You can also specify how tough your dog is with his or her toys (“gentle/1,” “average/2,” or “ruff!/3”). For those of you who read my dog box reviews, you’ll know Nyx is in the “ruff!” category.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This review is of the Large, Ruff, $29.95 a month, box. My dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler who currently weighs about 95 pounds.

There was an information card detailing the items in the box – this month had a spring theme. There was also a card asking you to share on social media.
Chuckit! Hydro Bowl – Value $7.39
This is a travel water bowl that you can fold up and snap to a leash, backpack, etc. It’s a great summer item if you have a healthy, active dog and/or like to travel. Since I have a chronically ill dog who takes 28 pills a day and has a tendency to tear ligaments in her knees, I’ll pass this on to someone I know who takes her dog camping with her.
Seasonal Kerchief – Listed Value $6
You’ll usually get a seasonal kerchief in Wigglebutt Box. This one has some pretty, bright colors that really stand out against Nyx’s black fur. These are printed on one side and I’m not sure of the material, but it feels like cotton. This is plenty big enough for a Rottweiler neck, as you’ll see below.
Amazon Dog Waste Bags (1 roll) – Value $0.23
You get a roll of these most months in Wigglebutt Box. But it is a useful item and it means I have to buy them less often!
Imagine This Magnetic Dog Tales – Value $12.93
This is my second set of magnetic poetry for dogs, but this one is a little different. There are several of just the letter “s” which I guess is so you can use proper grammar, depending on the subject of your sentences. Anyway, this is a fun novelty item to include and I’m sure my husband and I will have fun coming up with creative sentences to put on the refrigerator.
Zippy Paws NomNomz Taco – Value $6.99
We get a lot of Zippy Paws toys in dog subscription boxes. This is not the most durable one ever (the strips of “cheese” fabric were vulnerable), although it held up longer than I thought it would. And it made me giggle, to see this in Nyx’s mouth.
Ethical Pets Cuddle Bunny Plush Toy – Value $7.92
This was a good inclusion for a Spring-themed box. It is size-appropriate for a large breed dog and Nyx actually hasn’t removed any stuffing yet!
Ethical Pets Beef Beastie Bar (0.8 oz) – Value $1.51 (buy a package of 20 for $30.15)
These are made in the USA from USA-farmed beef. These have a pretty simple ingredients list otherwise, including vegetable glycerin, sea salt, and some fruits and vegetables, so they have some fiber but are soy and grain free. These would be good on the go if you don’t want to take along a huge bag of treats; they have a soft texture and can be easily broken into smaller pieces.
Fruitables Pumpkin and Apple Crunchy Treats (7 oz) – Value $2.42
We’ve seen this brand in Wigglebutt Box before, but this is a different flavor. They are free of wheat, corn, and soy, and they are also free of animal proteins, so they should be good for a lot of dogs with allergies and food sensitivities (unfortunately for Nyx, they contain oat and barley ingredients). These are low in calories and made in the USA.
And here are some shots of Nyx in the kerchief and enjoying the toys. She was less hyper than usual for these photos and the toys are both still intact.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $45.39 for this month’s Wigglebutt Box. Most of the prices above are Chewy.com sale prices or Amazon prices, though, so I would say the MSRP of the items was comfortably above $50. At any rate, that is above the month-to-month cost of the box and is a pretty good value for this subscription. I thought the overall mix of items in the box was good. The toys were both hits and the treats seem to be good quality. If you are looking for a dog subscription that offers items currently in production (so you can buy more if your dog loves them), this is a great option.
