There’s not a traditional information card with this subscription, but you get some pictures of dogs so that’s always fun.
There was also a coupon for a box item and a gift voucher for Naked Wines.
There was also a subscription referral card to pass along to a friend or family member with a dog, along with some treats.
Charlee Bear Bear Crunch in Bacon & Blueberry (0.5 oz) – Estimated Value $0.28
These are small, hard, crunchy treats. They are a good size for training. The starches here are peas and chickpeas and they actually don’t have any chicken in them, so they would be good for dogs with various food sensitivities.
Beer Paws Beer Biscuits (2 count) – Estimated Value $1.50?
This is a sample of a product available on the linked website, so I’ve estimated the price based on the price of the linked item. These are made from spent brewer’s grains and contain no hops (since hops are toxic to dogs). This company is located in Kansas City and they partner with lots of small, craft breweries.
Emmy’s Gourmet Canine Creations Turkey Cookie – Estimated Value $1.35
Most months, you will get a treat from Emmy’s Gourmet Canine Creations. This time it is seasonal and other times it will match the box theme. I think it is fun that they are partnering with a small company, and because of the cookie themes, you know you are getting fresh products.
Seasonal Kerchief – Retail Value $3?
Sometimes you will get a seasonal kerchief. Lately, I think they have been printing their own. I couldn’t get a good picture of Nyx in this because of the nature of the design – the edges of the diamond-shaped graphic got obscured by wrinkles. This is printed on very inexpensive, not-very-soft material.
Noah’s Bark in Bodacious Beef (0.31 oz) – Estimated Value $0.29
Noah’s Bark in Cha-Cha Chicken (0.29 oz) – Estimated Value $0.27
Noah’s Bark in Peanutty Perfection (0.36 oz) – Estimated Value $0.33
These are hard, bone-shaped dog biscuits. They are free of wheat, corn, soy, added sugars, animal by-products, and artificial colors and flavors. The company donates a portion of profits to local animal rescues, too. These do have grain-based ingredients (rice, barley, oats) so I will be passing them on to a neighbor’s dog to enjoy.
These are free of soy, corn, and glycerin, and they are made in the USA. They are super lightweight, air-puffed, and low in calories. They are a bit on the large side, which is fine for a large-breed dog. I am familiar with this brand from cat subscription boxes and they do generally tend to make minimally-processed treats with short ingredients lists, which is nice.
Bow Wow Pet Natural Fluffies (rabbit with rope) – Retail Value $10?
These are hard to find online but I did see an expired Groupon listing with a 3-pack for $29.99, so that’s where I got the value from. This is a stuffing-free toy with a rope on the end, meant for tugging (which is Nyx’s favorite activity of all time). Nyx enjoyed tugging on this with my husband holding the other end, though she did want to chew on the rope some, too.
Loving Pets Totally Grainless Sausage Bites (6 oz) – Retail Value $4.99
These are grain free and made in the USA. These come in several flavors but we received chicken and cranberry, which is great just in time for Thanksgiving. These are advertised as being appropriate for dogs of all sizes.
Howard Pet Products Vintage Flat Softball (large) – Retail Value $13.59
I’m not sure what the coating on this is made from, but it kind of looks like old leather (maybe a bit too soft to actually *be* old leather, though). Nyx thought this was pretty awesome. It was size-appropriate and easy for her to grip in her mouth.
Amigo Cleansing Towels (8 x 8 inches, 2 packs of 7 each) – Retail Value $7.99?
These used to be available at Walmart but not anymore, so the value is an estimate. I can’t really give an animal a complete bath with these, but they work well enough for touch-ups. They are just large-ish wipes with a little bit of a scent to help eliminate odors. They have vitamin E and aloe so they are a bit moisturizing and soothing, as well.
Crafters & Co. Happy Cup (berry rooibos herbal, 12 sachets) – Retail Value $12.95
This is a berry rooibos tea. I am a fan of drinking hot, herbal teas before bed and this one reminds me just a little bit of summertime (good, when it’s starting to get cold out). I should note this is probably a bit old, as it expires in January of 2018 and the tin was a little dented, though the company still makes this flavor if you end up liking it.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $63.53 for the November Pet Treater dog subscription box. That is well above the month-to-month cost of the box and also considerably above the average value of the box (granted, I had to estimate some of the values). This was a very treat-heavy month, so it wasn’t the best for Nyx, but she is an unusual case when it comes to dog food and treats so I won’t hold that against Pet Treater. There was a lot of fun, seasonal stuff here, and the toys were both huge hits.
