ShaggySwag June 2018 Review
ShaggySwag offers a fun, original theme each month and this one features SuperShaggy and his Sidestick (hilarious!) along with a loose superhero theme. Love it!
SuperShaggy Plush Dog Toy – Estimated Value $12.00
How great is SuperShaggy? Del absolutely loves plush toys, so he was into this guy from the getgo. The only thing that would've made it better is a squeaker buried somewhere in there!
Harry Barker Canvas Log Dog Toy – Retail Value $12.00
Here's SuperShaggy's Sidestick—a log-shaped plush toy. Too funny! Something about the shape of this one must have really appealed to Del because he grabbed it right out of the box and went off with it. I chased him down and made him sit properly for it before he pranced through the yard with it. He did that weird, accidental mouth-throw thing that dogs sometimes do with toys and launched this log into a gigantic heap of branches that fell from a tree and is waiting to be used as firewood. I didn't have the gusto to climb through the branches to fetch this toy, so I suppose it'll have to be unearthed again later.
Look at that grin! So into the stick.
Now, this is a unique concept! I had never heard of dog popcorn before, and as it turns out, it isn't really popcorn—it, in fact, doesn't include any corn at all. It's basically puffed cheese curds that come to life in the microwave. I popped the bag in there for 55 seconds as instructed, waited 2 minutes for it to cool (the bag got all shrinky and crinkly in this time so I wasn't sure if I had done it right). When it was all cooled off, I opened it up to find this...
So curious! Not shown in this image: Del anxiously shifting his weight below, waiting for me to put his bowl down. He seemed a little confused by the crunch airiness of these puffs at first, but that didn't stop him from gobbling the whole thing down pretty quickly.
Polkadog Wonder Nuggets Peanut Butter Dog Treats, 8 oz. — Retail Value $7.95
These are way more Del's speed and very similar to what we've used in the past to train him. Peanut butter flavored anything is one sure way to win him over, and he practically (gently) bit my hand off eating these out of it!
Mango Tango Grooming Wipes – Retail Value $7.49
Earth Rated Poop Bags, 2 rolls (30 bags) — Buy 120 bags for $6.99
I got 2 rolls of these same bags last month, too, and was pleased since they're the bags we use anyway. I love this brand, but my husband and I would both prefer the unscented version. This scented kind doesn't mask the poop smell, it just adds a perfumey-ness to it. Not my favorite combo. But I'm still grateful for the bags!
ShaggySwag Sunglasses – Estimated Value $3.00
And now a little somethin' for the humans! These ShaggySwag exclusive shades have a bottle opener built into each arm. So rad! I tried to put them on Del, but he decided he's terrified of them and cowered before running away. Won't be trying that again!
Verdict: Consistent with last month, I got such a kick out of this month's ShaggySwag theme! Both Del and I loved the stick toy the most, and he was super into the PB treats. Best of all, most if not all of ShaggySwag's offerings are eco-friendly and made in the USA! Additionally, they support Badass Brooklyn Animal Shelters. Two thumbs up.
