PoochPax: November 2013 Review

I introduced a new monthly subscription for dogs, PoochPax, in my Fun Findings post a couple weeks ago and was very excited when the PoochPax team offered to send me a box to review! Each month, the PoochPax subscription box includes 4-6 age and size appropriate toys and treats for as low as $19 each month (you can select a 1, 3, or 6 month subscription).

I really enjoyed the good mix of treats and toys (3 of each) in November’s PoochPax and hope that the future boxes will continue on this path! Check out the contents below!

The Spunkeez tug-o-war toy (~$3) isn’t the type of toy Sheba typically plays with, so this one hasn’t gotten much face time with my pup. I’m thinking I might end up donating it to a shelter because this is definitely a toy that would be great for a puppy!

Himalayan Yaky Yam Treats
These Lotsa Chicken flavored treats from Yaky Yam ($5) were Sheba’s absolute favorite! After she ate her first one she kept looking at me for more. These treats are also gluten-free, which I love. Gotta love the fact that my dog snacks healthier than I do! These are also made in the U.S. which is also nice to see!

A-Plus Frog Rope Toy
The A-Plus Frog Rope Toy (~$4) has been getting a decent amount of attention since arriving in Sheba’s PoochPax. Although it’s partially meant to be another tug-o-war toy, Sheba mostly enjoys the squeaky part of the toy on the frog’s stomach.

Bacon Twist
The Bacon Twist ($2.50) was the big winner in Sheba’s first PoochPax, and who can blame her? Bacon’s delish! I also love that this treat was included because it’s one that will keep Sheba occupied for a little longer when I’m at work or out running errands.

Flash & Glow Ball
Sheba loveeeees playing with balls, and this Flash & Glow Ball ($10) was no exception. Although she doesn’t really notice when the ball flashes (upon impact), she still really enjoys chasing this one around.

Smoothers Drops with Yogurt Treats
Despite us humans going gaga over pumpkin everything for fall, the Pumpkin-flavored Smoothers Drops with Yogurt treats ($6) weren’t a hit with Sheba. I think I’ll pass these along to a friend to see if another dog can enjoy these.

All together, November’s PoochPax retailed out to about $31, more than the $19-$29 cost of the box (depending on your subscription), which is great! Additionally, a portion of each PoochPax is donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind. It always makes me feel even better supporting a subscription when part of my purchase is going toward a good cause!

PoochPax also holds a contest each month via their social accounts, giving away an 11×14  customized canvas of the winner’s pet, and all you have to do is post a picture of your furry friend. Love it!
