I have never purchased a monthly subscription service for dog lovers before, mainly because of lack of information--what was in the boxes? How often would they arrive? Would my dogs like them? So when I was contacted to receive a free PetBox (in exchange for my honest review), I was excited to see what was what. (Keep reading for your chance to win one of your own!) Here's what came in the mail:
The PetBox arrived in a sturdy cardboard box that was attractive and easy to open. Kelly and Ike couldn't wait to check out the contents.
What is PetBox?
PetBox is a monthly delivery service that introduces its members to fun and healthy new pet products every month. But there's more!
How is PetBox different?
You can actually pick your own products and supplies that are most appealing to you and your furry friends. You will choose from a wide variety of quality and premium offerings. Or, go the traditional route and opt for a Surprise Box.
We got a Surprise Box, and we found 8 great items inside:
Aussie Naturals Duck Toy- made of suede, sturdy Jute fabric and high tensile strength Jutey Cotton rope. The body is filled with coconut fiber. Kelly is a strong chewer, and this toy is perfect for her! The suede will be a challenge for her razor sharp teeth!
NoviPet Omega 3 and 6- I've been learning a lot about vitamins for dogs and Omegas seem to be recommended by many pet parents and veterinarians. We have been giving Ike a fish oil pill for his itchy skin. Omega 3 & 6 may also help his skin and coat.
Earth Heart Canine Calm Natural Remedy Mist –Dealing with rescue dogs, we are often faced with dogs who have been in difficult situations, or have been through many transitions, and this holistic spray, which can be sprayed on the dog's coat or bedding, could very well help through the rough spots.
Clear Conscience Sliders Tender Chicken and Cheddar Recipe Dog Treats – healthy treats with organic flax and vegetables, all natural, no grain or gluten or glycerin.
Clear Conscience Sliders Tender Stikz- Hollistic dog jerky with beef as the main ingredient. Made in the USA.
The Honest Kitchen Smooches – Chicken and cranberry treats. Hand baked, wheat free and only 2.3 calories per smooch! I know how other dog bloggers rave about Honest Kitchen, and I'm excited that their treats are included.
Healthy Dogma Pumpkin ginger flavor Barkers –Low fat tiny treats, great for training rewards. I love the little "to go cup" in which they're packaged!
KeepDoggieSafe.com Pet Rescue Decal - window decal intended for use in case of fire or other emergency to notify emergency workers that there are pets inside your house that need to be rescued.
The retail value of the PetBox is $60. Subscriptions normally start at $29 per month. And, PetBox is donating 100% of proceeds from December to pet shelters!
