PetCo Expands PupBox for Older Dog Owners
Have you been mourning the loss of PupBox since your pooch aged out of the puppy subscription service? Good news! PetCo is expanding the popular box to older dogs!
The pet store has announced they’ll be extending PupBox to four different life stages — Puppy, Young Pup, Grown Pup and Senior Pup — so you can keep treating your furry friend well after they’ve stopped teething on the side of your couch (we promise, it gets better!).
Now sure quite where your dog would fit? Here’s how the brand is describing the breakdown and what’s inside each box:
- PupBox: “Puppy – Ideal for newborns to six month-old puppies, this box will feature age-appropriate training guides to help address puppies’ rapidly changing needs and growth and development, supporting pet parents through key milestones such as crate training and socialization.”
- PupBox: “Young Pup – This box will be tailored to dogs roughly seven to 18 months old and will include important training guides to help ease the transition into adolescence, as well as content on more general health and wellness themes such as nutrition and grooming.”
- PupBox: “Grown Pup – For dogs ranging from 19 months to six years old (or older, depending on dog size and breed), this box will provide pet parents with evergreen tips and products that are essential for a dog’s adult life, with informative materials on topics such as mental health and seasonal themes.”
- PupBox: Senior Pup – “The age at which an adult dog becomes a senior dog varies by pet breed and size, but typically ranges from seven to 11 years of age. Senior dogs have unique needs across nutrition, activity level and overall health. These specialty senior boxes will feature treats, toys and educational content aimed at guiding pet parents through their dogs’ elderly years and will become available later in the year. Until these boxes are available, customers will be eligible to receive PupBox: Grown Pup for older dogs.”
Shipping won’t begin until September 15, but PupBox is already taking orders including gift orders.
They kick things off with a quiz that includes your doggo’s birthdate — one thing we’d love to see is an approximate section for dog owners who adopted a pup and don’t know — as well as information on gender, size, coat-type, and any allergies.
Plans for the older versions of PupBox are priced the same as the one for puppies with a new subscription starting at $39 a month and savings for longer commitments (a 12-month subscription is $29 a month).
