PawPack Subscription Box Review + Coupon – October 2017

Pawpack October 2017 Box

PawPack is a subscription box for dogs. They are now owned by Pet GiftBoxand 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.

The box came with this information card.

Pawpack October 2017 Spider

Multipet Halloween Dog Toy (spider with ropes) – Retail Value $13.88 (found on sale for $9.95)

We received one of these in a different shape in another dog subscription box this month and Nyx destroyed that one in a minute or two, but this one is holding up better. This is size-appropriate for a large dog, too.

Pawpack October 2017 Vegalicious

Vegalicious Pumpkin Wedges (5.6 oz) – Retail Value $25 (found on sale for $17.25)

These are just dehydrated pumpkin rings. Nyx does fine with pumpkin so I have let her have a few of these. She thinks they are chew toys and it took her awhile to realize she could eat them. OF COURSE, the treats Nyx can have end up being $20 a bag. OF COURSE. (On the other hand, her food is $3.50 a can and she eats four cans a day so I am already spending $500 a month on dog food, so what difference does $20 more make?)

Here is a better look at one of the rings.

Pawpack October 2017 Kaddoo

Wet Noses Organic Kaddoo Fruit Treat for Dogs (pumpkin/apple/peanut butter, 0.2 oz) – Retail Value $2.99

This is another thing I think Nyx will be able to have; the only ingredients are apple puree, pumpkin puree, and ground peanuts. However, since I had just given her the pumpkin rings, we have to wait a few days to make sure those don’t mess with her system before trying a new treat. Definitely happy to get at least two items Nyx can probably eat in a single dog box, though.

Pawpack October 2017 Chews

Sorcery Stix (6 oz) – Retail Value $8.99?

These are basically the same thing as the “Bone Polish” from this month’s Pet GiftBox, but with a different label. So here is what I said about those: These are green, dental chew-style treats. They are Pet GiftBox branded so I had to estimate the value (they offer some of their private label items in boxes, but not for sale in their shop). I estimated a value based on a similar size of Greenies. They also have similar ingredients to Greenies. Also based on Greenies size information, these are probably too small for an 87-pound dog.

Pawpack October 2017 Pupsavers

Lulubelles Pupsavers Toy – Value $8.99

This is a squeaky plush toy but the fabric is reinforced and so far, Nyx hasn’t been able to destroy it. She does like it quite a bit though, and she’s been pretty violent with it so I guess it is well made.

Here are some shots of Nyx with the cheeseburger toy and a bonus shot of her tugging on one of the pumpkin wedges.

Verdict: I calculated a retail value of about $60 for the October PawPack ($48.17 with sales prices). This is a great value for this subscription! While we weren’t able to use the dental chews, there were two treats Nyx can actually try to balance that out, and the toys were pretty durable, so most of the box was a huge success. It’s rare I can give Nyx this many items from one dog subscription with her IBD so I know she was happy as well.

What do you think of the October PawPack? Do you subscribe to any dog boxes?

  1. The coupon code isn’t working 😞 I’m looking forward to trying this out with my Rott

  2. Pumpkin is excellent for dogs! It can actually prevent diarrhea in dogs prone to that (with Addison’s disease, for instance.)

    If your dog loves pumpkin, you might want to check out Wet Nose brand pumpkin cookies. This is the ingredient list– Organic Rye Flour, Organic Oat Flour, Roasted Pumpkin, Canola Oil, Ginger, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves.

    My parents dog, who has a very sensitive stomach and is a picky eater, would move mountains for these treats! And you can get them at pet co.

    • I mix pumpkin in my dogs food when they’re having any tummy issues. Also, a herb called slippery elm is amazing for GI issues in dogs and humans. I love it and always have the powder on hand.

    • Unfortunately, Nyx can’t have grain of any kind due to her inflammatory bowel disease. I used to give her canned pumpkin daily but we’ve had to move on to psyllium fiber (she gets SEVEN capsules of that per day) because of her digestive issues. I’m just glad there was a single-ingredient treat!
