PawPack Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2017
PawPack is a subscription box for dogs. They are now owned by Pet GiftBox, and they’ve recently undergone a bit of rebranding. Treats are still all-natural and premium, but this box is now marketed more towards heavy chewers (like my dog!). For reference, my dog is a Rottweiler, who currently weighs about 87 pounds.
This is a review of the large (51+ pound) dog box ($31.5o per month).
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.)

The box came with this information card.
Jolly Pets Tug-n-Toss Mini – Value $4.98
Jolly Pets toys show up in Bullymake Box fairly often, so I know they are durable. I also know there is no way I’m playing tug with an 87-pound Rottweiler and a toy this small (though I’m sure she would love it…). I have found a small number of treats Nyx can have, though, including some sweet potato strips I can put into the hole here, so she is able to play with it on her own.
Dante’s Doggy Delights Shark Cookie – Value $2.27 (buy 6 cookies for $13.63)
Although it’s not labeled as such, we received the gluten/grain free version of this cookie (you can also get wheat based ones for a little less money). This has almond flour and coconut flour so it is a little fatty, but nice enough for a one-time treat for a dog. This is from a small Canadian company that sells on Etsy. I never would’ve discovered them otherwise. I do like it when I learn about new Etsy sellers from subscription boxes – Etsy is kind of overwhelming otherwise.
Lulubelles Happy Shark (large) – Value $16.99
The theme for this box was sharks and it was surprisingly cohesive considering the items in the box. Although this is a plush toy in a box for heavy chewers, Nyx did not manage to destroy it (see some photos of her playing with it below). It has reinforced fabric with some kind of webbing – a sample was attached to the tag – and this seems to have helped. Nyx mostly wanted to bite it right on the mouth.
Fish4Dogs Squid Bites (75 g) – Value $6.99
This is made from squid, vegetable starch, and glycerin (from palm trees). I like how open this company is about their ingredients. They appear to be UK-based but have a US shop (linked to in the product name). I have never given squid to Nyx so it is probably safe for her to have (dogs with IBD have to be fed novel or hydrolyzed proteins, with novel simply meaning something they haven’t had before, especially something that’s a bit more unusual or harder to find). Anyway, I have to introduce new foods and treats super slowly with Nyx because of her condition but I definitely appreciate getting something new and different.
Sassy’s Goodies Grain Free Blue Shark Bites (5 oz) – Value $8.33?
I didn’t see the shark treats on the Sassy’s Goodies site, but they have lots of other 6 ounce bags of treats for $10 so that’s how I estimated the value. These are grain free. I have to do a bit of investigation before I decide if Nyx can have these; other kinds of fish are out but I don’t know how similar the proteins are between, say, whitefish and shark. There’s a good possibility these will be OK, though. (I find it rather funny that these are discussed as having been made with local ingredients in Missouri. I am from Missouri and I don’t know where they would get shark for meat…perhaps it is the other ingredients that are local!)
Here is Nyx with the shark toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $39.56 for the July PawPack. Although one toy was on the small side, overall, I am pleased with this box. The value was about $8 over the month-to-month cost of the subscription and the treats were suitable for dogs with various food allergies and intolerances. Also, there were a lot of new brands for us in this box. I also have to give them points for really sticking to the shark theme this month; it is one of the better efforts I’ve seen from a subscription box in this regard.
