More Dog Subscriptions To Consider

Here are a few more great dog boxes, recommended by our editors:

The Cost: $39.94 per month. Save with longer subscriptions. Sign up here!

What Our Readers Say:

“Always something to pull out to make your pup happy!” – Alex N.

What you get: If your dog’s favorite toy is the iconic KONG, you may as well stick with what works for ’em! KONG Box sends a classic with the first box (you know, the kind pups love to lick peanut butter or treats out of), then subsequent boxes include a combo of a KONG training toy, a “personality toy,” which is hand-picked based on your unique dog’s needs, KONG brand treats, and recipes & tips for keeping your playful pal as happy as can be. Each dog subscribed to this box has their own profile set up with their chewing style, size, and more, so if you have more than one pooch you can be guaranteed you won’t get the same ol’ toys. And, here’s a perk: KONG toys are made in Colorado.

Comments (20)

  1. I recently started feeding my pup @getjoyfood and have noticed significant difference in energy level and her coat!

  2. Bullymake Box is our favorite! I have a Dane/Mastiff and a Pit mix. They both love the toys that Bullymake Box sends. After months of super-chewing, the toys are still in great condition.

  3. My Barkbox without any frills was $36.86 after Tax. I am not sure where you get a $29 offer unless your subscribing

  4. I’ve had Bark Box for several months now. I purchased the “extra toy option” and with that we still only receive 3 toys every month and 2-3 treat. It’s not 4-6 toys. Wish it was. My dog is under 20 lbs. not sure if that would make a difference. I love their monthly themes! A surprise for me as well as I look forward to seeing what it is for the month.

  5. Dapper dog is $35 at the cheapest even with a discount code I don’t see anything on the website for $29

  6. I subscribed for the 6 month deal to the Dog Bundles. Never shipped my box, never responded to my emails or phone messages over a 10 day period. I think it’s a scam, so I cancelled and asked for a refund for the first box where they took my money but never fulfilled the order. So very disappointed in this, now I hesitate to try another dog box subscription.

    • Hi Debbie – Thank you for letting us know, our community is an important part of staying on top of these types of issues! We investigate all subscription box brands before they appear on our lists and we do our best keep them up to date when we’re alerted to brands that are having customer service issues or have shut down. This particular list just got updated for 2020 today (and I see Dog Bundles is no longer on the list).

  7. Would you please give more detail in your descriptions? I’d like to know how many toys come with each box, how many treats (or how long the treats will last), etc.

    Please compare the different subscriptions. Does one have 5* toys and 2* treats for $25 but another has 4* toys and 4* treats for $27?

    I’d also like to know why a subscription is ranked #1 vs #9. What you have here (and I read another list you recently posted) is just a list of a bunch of different services. These posts have helped me to see there are a bunch of different companies to choose from, but not really any information on what makes one better or worse than others.

    • Thanks for the feedback! We rank these lists in order of the number of votes they receive from our readers. We’re working on updates for 2020 now so we’ll see what we can do to make the description of each box more informative. 🙂

  8. I just cancelled mine today! It’s so frustrating that they are so quick to charge but can’t ship on time. I’m going to try bullyMake it’s a little more but it’s worth it if they are reliable. So disappointing cuz I’ve been with barkbox for a long time and soon as I switched to super chewer this stuff happens.

  9. Bark Box is not shipping to cananda but still taking payments. Also hard to disable auto renew. . . was a customer since 2014. . . cancelled and still being charge and had my subscription renewed after I disabled and they will not cancel early or refund for unrecieved boxes. . . sadly I have to advise any canadians stay far away from bark box now.

    • At that point I’d ask my credit or debit card issuer file dispute and cancel the credit or debit card so they can’t keep charging to it

  10. Might want to hold off on any long term commitment to BarkBox. It seems they are having CS, sourcing, and shipping problems and delays. Started in Sept. and continues.

  11. Pooch perks only ships to US. Theres no Canada option 🙁

  12. I subbed to the Super Chewer box last month and signed up for a six-month to get a promo deal. I signed up at the end of August and the August box shipped right away. They charge me the first week of September for that box. Well, it’s now nearly October and I haven’t even gotten a shipping notice. I reached out to them and got a c.s. response that there was some kind of delay and that they would be sending an email to explain. Never happened. I’ve always seen such good reviews about Bark Box, so it’s frustrating that this happened right out the gate and with basically no communication about what’s happening. I will be charged next week for the October box and still have no idea when September will arrive. I’m really hoping this is a fluke for them and the rest of the months will be fine.

    • they seem to be having issues shipping to Canada right now. I wanted to sign up but couldn’t. They really should have kept you informed.

    • I had the same issue and now they have the six month subscription on hold as they can not get it through customs. When I reached out I always got the same response. @ confident you will get it within the shipping time”. Wonder how confident now? They kept saying we will send you extra toys but what good is this if it can not get here. They should not take Canadian subscriptions if they cannot deliver

      • @Victoria – I have been a BarkBox subscriber for over a year now and I’ve still not received my September (or October) box and it is now Oct 24th. They’ve now, for the time being, stopped taking on any new Canadian subscribers while they sort this out. I got an email saying that they are able to ship out October boxes now but they had to make them all toys (no treats/chews so my guess is the issue with the border has to do with “food” products) and they said they were hopeful that the boxes would arrive by Halloween (I’m not holding my breath). I spoke to c.s. regarding my September box and they said it had been returned to them as it was not able to cross the border so they offered me either a refund or add an extra month to the end of my current subscription. Prior to this, shipping was always much slower then they anticipate (I always get my box around the 31st of the month when their arrival estimate says I should get it by the 21st) but this is an unprecedented wait. That said, they’re definitely the best box out there so if they do get this problem sorted out, I’d say stick with them!

  13. Chewy box says 29.99 on the website.

    • Thanks for catching that, Jackie! Just updated the price 🙂
