Wigglebutt Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon – May 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.
Doggy Incredibubbles, Peanut Butter Flavor (25 mL) – Value $3.55
Nyx doesn’t really understand bubbles (she eats them, and I don’t really want her eating soap). But the cats will like these (they don’t care about the flavoring so much).
Snicky Snaks Banana Coconut Crunch Bar (1.8 oz) – Value $2.99
These do have actual banana and coconut (which is more than I can say for some dog treats labeled with “banana” in the last month or two). They also contain oats and rice flour, but they are wheat, corn, and soy free and they are made in the USA. Note: these have been discontinued from several sellers.
Amazon Basics Dog Waste Bags (1 roll) – Value $0.23 (buy 60 rolls for $13.57)
You’ll usually get one roll of Amazon basics dog waste bags in Wigglebutt Box. These are super cheap and I buy them regularly from Amazon (they work just fine, and why spend a lot of money on something that you’re going to throw away eventually) so I am always happy to get more.
Wigglebutt Box Paw Necklace – Listed Value $14.99
There’s usually a gift for dog owners in this box. This month it was a cute paw necklace. I am one of those people who will wear either silver or gold tone jewelry, plus I prefer delicate jewelry, so this works for me. I think it will look good layered with a few other necklaces, too.
SPOT (Ethical) Rainbow Crinkler Tug – Value $8.29
Nyx likes tennis balls and ropes and she likes to try to make everything a tug toy, so she was happy with this. (My husband was not around to help with pictures and it is hard to hold the camera in one hand and tug with the other, so no photos of this one.)
Zippy Paws Nomnomz Fries – Value $6.99
We get a lot of Zippy Paws toys with this subscription but I find them to be some of the more durable plush toys, so I am OK with that! Nyx thought this was pretty fun and she wasn’t even able to rip out or disable the squeaker, so I’d say this was pretty durable.
Seasonal Kerchief – Listed Value $6
You’ll usually get a seasonal kerchief in Wigglebutt Box. This one has more of a generic dog theme, but it contrasts nicely with Nyx’s fur (and it’s big enough for a thick Rottie neck).
Blue Wilderness Trail Treats Grain-Free Biscuits, Salmon Recipe (10 oz) – Value $3.69
These are grain free and soy free so they will work for dogs with a lot of food allergies. They are made in the USA and are free of preservatives. They do have some chicken-based ingredients and Nyx can’t have them due to her IBD, so I will be passing the along to someone else’s dog to enjoy. (I’m not holding anything against them – there are very, very few treats Nyx can actually have.)
Here are some photos of Nyx wearing the kerchief and enjoying the French fry toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $46.73 for this month’s Wigglebutt Box. I’d say that’s about average for this box (it is over the cost of the subscription by more than $10, which is great, since some of the prices quoted above are Amazon and Chewy and Walmart sale prices) and I’d also say the box contents this month were fairly representative of what you would receive in a typical month. The toys appealed to Nyx and were fairly durable, too!
