Pet Gift Box for Dogs March 2018 Review
Pet GiftBox usually does a pretty good job of sticking to a theme for each box; this month, there was a Las Vegas theme (does it make me old that I went there when I was 21 and that was 19 years ago now?):
The box came with this information card.
There was also a promotional card.
And there was a promo code for getting a custom pillow made to look like your pet. I get a lot of these and am sorely tempted to send in a photo of Mr. Kitty to see what they do with it.
Poker Chip Foam Toy
This was Pet GiftBox branded so you can’t buy it online. It is foam covered with a fabric outer layer. It doesn’t appear to have a squeaker. I am guessing this would float, although Nyx really doesn’t like the water, so we didn’t try to test that out. Nyx liked this well enough.
Sodapup “I Love You to the Moon and Back” Treats (4 oz)
We got treats from Sodapup with the same ingredients last month (grain free, animal-protein-free, with carob) in a different package, but I’m not complaining because Nyx can eat them (and, in fact, she loves them). These are kind of soft and crescent-shaped and are packaged exclusively for Pet Gift Box.
Jackpot Treats (6 oz)
These are also exclusive to the box and can’t be purchased online. These do have chicken as well as wheat flour, so they wouldn’t be suitable for dogs with allergies but will work just fine for healthy dogs. (They are free of soy and corn and are made in the USA, for what it’s worth.)
Playing Card Foam Toy
This is very similar to the poker chip toy, just basically a different shape. Nyx liked them equally well, but I think I would’ve preferred it if there had been two toys in this box that were a bit more different from one another. If your dog didn’t care for one toy, then, at least the other would possibly be a hit.
Dog Pawrignon from Pet Winery (12 fl oz) – Retail Value $14.95
I’ve received cat wine from this company before (Monkey loves it) but I don’t think I’ve received any of their dog products. This has fish oil, which can be good for skin and coat issues as well as the joints (especially in combination with a glucosamine and chondroitin supplement). Obviously, this is a non-alcoholic product that is just for fun (you can get fish oil pills that will last longer than this bottle, for cheaper).
Here are some photos of Nyx enjoying some of the items from the box. In case you were wondering what me reviewing so many dog boxes does to her, she is now at the point where she will play with something for only a few minutes, drop it, and look at me like “where’s the next toy?”
Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a value for the March Pet GiftBox for dogs since only one item is available for retail purchase online. The items did a pretty good job of sticking to the Las Vegas theme, probably due to the fact that most of them are exclusive to Pet Gift Box (and were produced for the box). Although I do wish there had been two different kinds of toy, overall I think the curation was decent. The treats are quite different from one another and some were even hypoallergenic!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: At a cost of $25 for this box, you’re paying approximately $5 per item.
