February 2016 PetGiftBox for Dogs Unboxing
I recently reviewed the February 2016 PetGiftBox for cats and I was happy with the value and items I received. I also ordered a February 2016 PetGiftBox for dogs to see how the value compares (and to have a chance to play with my friend’s cute dog, Nais!) Will the dog box prove just as good as the cat one?
(P.S. If you want to see more of Nais, check out the Instagram fruit_and_cloud.)
The first item out of the box was a Charming Pet brand Love Pulleez Forget-Me-Not Frog. This is a cool dog toy that has stretchy arms that can be pulled from side to side for tug-of-war games. The head of the frog also has a squeaker in it, which Nais liked. As you can see in the video, Nais went for the toy immediately! This type of toy sells for $11 typically.
The second item was another toy - a Zanies brand bone embroidered with a heart to fit the Valentine’s Day theme. The bone also has a squeaker in it - I believe that one survived the night. I value this toy at $9.
The third item was an “I <3 My Dog” magnet, similar to the “I <3 My Cat” magnet in the cat box. I liked that the other box had included an item for the pet’s human, and I feel similarly this time. It’s a neat item that people can put on their fridge, car, or other magnetic surface while fitting the box’s “love” theme. These magnets sell for around $5.
The fourth item, which I think was Nais’ favorite, was a bag of Isle of Dogs brand treats.
Look at that cutie do tricks for treats! The bag of treats is 12oz, which is a decent size for a subscription box item. This size bag is valued at $8.
The fifth and final item was an “I Woof You” cookie from Bubba Rose. This is a cute-looking cookie that I’m sure Nais will enjoy; he was too stuffed with the Isle of Dogs treats to try it while I was visiting my friend. These cookies sell for about $4.
I don’t actually have a picture of the box filled with items, because I left the items at my friend’s house, but you can see the individual items in the pictures above. Overall, Nais enjoyed the items in the PetGiftBox, so I’d consider them a hit. Were they worth the cost? My calculations price the box’s items at $37, which is even higher than the MSRP estimate of $34 that PetGiftBox offered. Both estimates are higher than the box’s cost, which can range from $18.99 to $28.99. Like last time, PetGiftBox provided a high quality selection of valuable items that any pet can enjoy.
