Pupjoy Dog Subscription Box Review + Coupon – November 2017

Pupjoy November 2017 Box

Pupjoy is a fully customizable subscription box for dogs. Treats are made in the US, 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, dog size, and frequency you’d like to receive boxes.

Pupjoy November 2017 Inside

This is a review of the “Grande” sized box, which includes 5-7 items and starts at $39.00. I chose the “Toys & Treats” option, with grain-free treats and a variety of toys (not just plush). I selected “Large” for the dog size, which is 50-100 pounds. (My dog, Nyx, is a Rottweiler who weighs about 87 pounds right now.) The total cost of this specific box ended up being $44.00.

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.)

There’s not a traditional information card for this box due to the degree of customization available.

Pupjoy November 2017 Catapult

American Dog Catapult Cage – Retail Value $16

American Dog toys have been popping up in a lot of dog subscription boxes lately. They are what I would call “medium durability” with a dog like Nyx. She can play with them a few times before she destroys them. (This one has made it through one session so far.) With a less-destructive dog, they would probably last longer.

Pupjoy November 2017 Einstein

Einstein Pets Santa’s Helper with Sweet Potato, Turkey, and Cranberry (8 oz) – Retail Value $12

These are free of wheat, corn, and soy, though they do have some oat flour. They are also free of preservatives and are made in the USA. All ingredients are organic, too! I like the combination of turkey, sweet potato, and cranberry for winter holidays. I will be passing this along to a coworker’s dog to enjoy since, unfortunately, turkey and oat flour are out for Nyx.

Pupjoy November 2017 Gingerbread Man

Zippypaws Z-Stitch Gingerbread Man – Retail Value $10

We get a lot of Zippypaws toys in subscription boxes but that is OK for two reasons: (1) Nyx enjoys them and (2) Nyx has a really hard time tearing them apart (especially these Z-stitch ones). You can see a few photos of Nyx playing with this below. They do have seriously annoying squeakers, though.

Pupjoy November 2017 Pork

Portland Pet Food Company Hopkin’s Pork n’ Potato (9 oz) – Retail Value $7

This is an unusual product for a dog subscription box but I think it is a nice change of pace. You can serve this from the pouch or heat it up in the microwave. Ingredients include pork, potatoes, carrots, green beans, eggs, beef heart, potato flour, vegetable oil, and powdered eggshells (presumably for calcium). I like that is grain free, plus it is a new brand for me.

Pupjoy November 2017 Sodapup

Sodapup Holiday Treat Dispenser and Chew Toy (large) – Retail Value $12

In case it isn’t easy to see in the photo, this has holes in the top and the bottom so your dog’s tongue can’t get stuck due to suction. Sodapup toys are pretty durable, too – we know from past experience. This is a treat-dispensing toy and now that I have found a few treats that don’t upset Nyx’s digestive system, she has a lot more fun with toys like this. We put some sweet potato straws from a past Pupjoy box in here and she had a good time getting them out (well, before it rolled under the couch, anyway…).

Pupjoy November 2017 Turkey

4 Paws Butcher Shop Turkey Jerky (4 oz) – Retail Value $13

These are single-ingredient treats so they are grain free! This is US farm-raised human grade turkey breast. I don’t know if the selection of turkey was deliberate or just next in the rotation (you’ll get a lot from 4 Paws Butcher Shop with Pupjoy), but it is seasonally-appropriate, as well, since we got this box in late November.

Here are some shots of Nyx with the gingerbread man toy.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $70 for the November Pupjoy box. That is one of the best values I’ve seen for this subscription. With the box this month, I feel like there was a good selection of premium foods and treats, plus some toys that are durable even for my destructive dog.  The presentation (box, etc.) is also nice. And don’t forget that you can customize this subscription quite a bit as well as reorder your favorite items in the Pupjoy Shop.

To Wrap Up:
