What Sets BoxDog Apart?
Unlike most other dog subscription boxes, where you get a box every month for your dog, BoxDog offers you 4 seasonally themed giant boxes every year. And when I say giant, I mean really giant – the box is huge!!
You can also customize this box pretty nicely in terms of toys, accessories etc. – you can pick any two items for the standard box, and any three items for an upgrade.
Another interesting twist is the vegan skincare item included in every box.
What’s In The Box
As we mentioned above, each box contains 2 or 3 items that you can choose. These span a large variety of different things such as toys, leashes, blankets, dog clothes, or even fun things like pet paint pens! Our resident doggy reviewer Daizy particularly loved the Tuffy Turtle toy – and although she of course managed to rip it open and get out the stuffing anyway, it at least took her a little longer than for many other toys – ha ha! And it’s a few days later now, and she’s still seeking it out to play with.
In addition, there are 4 types of treats. These treats are handmade, and are pretty gourmet treats – not the mass produced type at all!
On top of that, there is a vegan skincare item for your dog. We thought that was a pretty cool addition, and different from many of the dog boxes we’ve seen.
We’ll also mention here that the packaging / the box itself is actually very nice and seems to be very high quality too – so you just feel good when you see and handle it!

What You Pay
A standard BoxDog, with 2 items you choose, is priced at $39.99. You can also choose to include a third item of your liking, and that takes the price up to $49.99.
In comparison with many other dog subscription boxes, we thought this box was actually priced very fairly, especially considering that some of the items you can pick are quite premium, and that the treats that are included are handmade. Also, remember that you are getting this box only 4 times a year, rather than every month. So ultimately, you’re going to end up coming out ahead of many other dog boxes, especially if you parse out what you give your pooch over a few months.
Right now, they have a BOGO offer for Black Friday, so if you enter the code “BOGO” at checkout, you will be sent an additional box!!
The Bottom Line
Overall, we really like the BoxDog. You get a large assortment of various handmade treats, gadgets, toys, and skincare items, at a relatively reasonable price.
Especially their winter box – for which we will do a video review soon – seems like it’ll be really pretty awesome, and with their current BOGO offer, there’s no reason to try this one out if you’re looking for some nice gifts for your dog for the holidays.
