Wigglebutt Box Dog Subscription Review + Coupon – June 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 86 pounds.

There was an information card detailing the items in the box.
Good Value Mouse Pad Photo Frame – Listed Value $5.99
Wow, a mouse pad photo frame. I haven’t seen one of these for awhile. I don’t have any recently printed photos of my pets but I think I have some older ones I could use. My mouse pad at work is looking kind of gross so maybe it is time for a replacement (or maybe it is time for me to stop eating at my desk…). (I can only find this exact item on a wholesale site with a huge minimum order so I have used the value from the information card.)
Seasonal Kerchief – Listed Value $6
Wigglebutt Box sends a seasonal kerchief every month. This box arrived far enough in advance of July 4 to be used then, which is nice. This was plenty big enough to fit around Nyx’s big Rottweiler neck, too.
Darford Grain Free Dog Treats (bacon flavor, 12 oz) – Value $8.09
These are made in British Columbia, Canada and are grain free. They also have blueberries and cranberries, which may help with urinary tract health. Unlike a lot of other dog treats, they don’t contain any chicken-based ingredients, so if your dog is sensitive to chicken (it is a somewhat common pet allergen), these would still be acceptable.
Gnawsome Silly Faces Mustache (4.75 inches) – Value $1.99
Nyx liked chewing on this although she didn’t understand how to do it for the camera, so there are no photos. (If a dog puts it in his/her mouth the right way, it looks like the dog has a mustache…)
Amazon Basics Dog Waste Bags – Value $0.25
You’ll get a roll of these pretty much every month. This is about 3 days’ worth for Nyx (she is on a high fiber supplement) but I’m happy with the quality of the bags. I have actually bought more of these several times after discovering them here.
Hare of the Dog Jerky Sticks in 100% Rabbit – Value $2.69
This looks like something Nyx will be able to have. I introduce new foods slowly because of her IBD and she had just had a new treat last week, so I am holding off for now. But rabbit usually counts as a “novel” protein for dogs with dietary issues, so I am excited to have this!
KONG Squeezz Ball (XL) – Value $4.78
I’ve been a fan of this product line for a long time. These toys are sturdier than most. Nyx has had quite a few of them, in nearly every shape, so I know. This ball squeaks and has a hollow place where you can put a treat or something. Nyx had a hard time figuring out the treat part because she gets so few treats, puzzle toys are just confusing to her. (She did eventually catch on.)
Fetch Topsy Turvies Cow/Beaver – Value $2.99 (sale price; MSRP is $6.99)
This is a plush, although Nyx did not even manage to put a hole in it during the few minutes she had it. I would watch a larger dog playing with this. Nyx kept trying to put the whole thing in her mouth and she very nearly succeeded. For what it’s worth, it seems fairly sturdy and well-made.
Posing for the camera. I can’t believe she actually sat still!
This toy didn’t photograph with a black dog well, but Nyx enjoyed it anyway.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $32.78 for this month’s Wigglebutt Box. That is pretty close to the cost of the box and is a little bit low for Wigglebutt Box. But, if you use the WELCOME10 coupon or longer-term subscription, you could save a bit and make this box a better value. Nyx did quite enjoy the toys and will be having one of the treats later in the week, so she is happy.
