Pupjoy Dog Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2017
Pupjoy is a fully customizable subscription box for dogs. Treats are made in the U.S., often from smaller or artisan producers. You can select a box for one or multiple dogs, a box containing treats only, toys and accessories only or all three categories of items. Other choices include grain free, protein sensitive, and organic, toy preferences, and dog size.
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.)
This is a review of Grande-sized Natural, $39 a month box, which includes grain free treats and “inquisitive”-durable toys (that is, designed for dogs who destroy soft toys). The size selected was “large,” which is 50-100 pounds. (My dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler who weighs about 86 pounds right now.)

There’s not a traditional information card for this box due to the degree of customization available.
There was also a gift card for blanketid.com, a pet ID tag registry system. I am not including this in the box value because when following the instructions online, I was consistently getting a price that was about $20 more than indicated on the gift card (which also appears to be in Canadian funds).
Rosie’s Salmon and Ginger Dog Treats (6 oz) – Value $9.99
These are grain free and soy free and made in the USA. They are small so you could use them for a training treat for a larger dog, or you’d be fine giving them to most smaller dogs as-is. This brand is new to us; 10% of their proceeds go to pet rescues, which I think is a nice touch.
Cocotherapy Pure Hearts Pina Colada (5 oz) – Value $9.96 (buy a 3 pack for $29.88)
These are vegan and grain free. They have ingredients that kind of make me want to eat them (don’t worry, I’m not eating dog treats). Unfortunately, Nyx can’t have buckwheat and these do contain buckwheat, but I have lots of dogs in my extended family I could pass these along to. These are made in the USA, too!
Gaines Family Farmstead Sweet Potato Chews (8 oz) – Value $10.99
These are blanched and dehydrated sweet potatoes with no other ingredients. I was able to give one to Nyx and she thought it was pretty awesome. I’m always happy to get treats like this from dog subscriptions.
Tuffy No Stuff Ring – Value $10.18
This has a lot of stitching and no stuffing in an effort to increase durability. Nyx has not been able to pull any pieces of this off so far, which is great. It is also size appropriate and she seems to enjoy it.
Canine Calm Aromatherapy Wipes from Earth Heart (10 count) – Value $7
These have a lot of different essential oils including bergamot, tangerine, lavender, rose geranium, sweet marjoram, and ylang ylang. You actually apply this around your dog’s ears (you can do face and body too). Nyx hasn’t been too anxious lately so I can’t say whether they’re actually calming but we will keep these around as sometimes loud noises do bother her a bit.
Pet Projekt Sport Large Green Nubby Toss Toy – Value $13
This is quite a bit more durable than some other PetProjekt toys we’ve received in other dog subscription boxes in the past, so that’s a win. I folded up a bit of one of the sweet potato treats and stuck it inside the toy, then let Nyx have at this for awhile. She seemed to be having fun. She hasn’t quite gotten the hang of removing treats from inside toys, I guess due to lack of experience.
Here is Nyx with some of the items from the box. She was really protective of her sweet potato treat.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $61.12 for the July Pupjoy box. That’s a pretty good value for a box that’s as customizable as this one. There were even treats Nyx could have, which is pretty remarkable (and it’s the second month in a row for that, by the way). The toys were reasonably durable as well as being size-appropriate, too.
