It might be simpler to list what's NOT unique about BoxDog. This company has really turned the entire industry on its head, and pet parents seem to be pretty happy about it. The BoxDog boxes come quarterly, so it's not a major monthly commitment. Plus, you'll get to select from a variety of totally unique, adorable, and delicious products to put inside your box. But the best part is that these pet boxes are all handmade. Here's a closer look at this quite impressive feature.
Have you noticed how unique each of the BoxDog toys and treats look? That's because each one is a handmade masterpiece. You're not getting generic junk for your loveable ball of fluff. No, these items are of the highest quality, carefully crafted by hand, and the dedication and detail really show. Donuts, chews, cookies, and other BoxDog bakery treats are baked by BoxDog chefs in a USA kitchen. In fact, these treats are made so fresh and pure that even humans can eat them.
We'll be honest, ordering from BoxDog gave us a bit of a hard time until we figured out the whole system. Once we did, it was just smooth sailing from then on. But that initial getting-to-know-you process was a little off-putting. For those who haven't done it before, here's how to order from BoxDog:
- Choose which box you want - You can choose the monthly plan, quarterly, or grain-free quarterly box set.
- Choose the items you want included in your BoxDog box - Click on the item to add it to your box, and toggle the buttons to add more than one.
- Pick your free gift - Members get a free $30 gift, too. You can choose between a cool summer mat, cookie gift basket, or hammerhead shark plush toy.
- Fill out your details - Give BoxDog things like shipping and payment details
- Wait for your box to arrive.
BoxDog ships out your first box immediately. In normal times, you’d get your box within 3-5 business days. But because of COVID-19, shipping times are slightly longer. You’ll get four giant boxes each year, one at the beginning of each season.
The beauty of BoxDog is that the contents are tailored according to your requests. You'll get to decide what goes into your box. Each box comes with 3-4 types of handmade treats, cookies, or chews, 1 vegan skincare product, and a dog toy, gear, or gadget of your choosing. Here's what BoxDog has to offer:
Toys are plush and tough to withstand lots of chewing. These are also machine-washable, and some even float in water. Some of the popular handmade toys include Tuffy lobster, BoxDog boombox, huge hammerhead, and the ever-loveable Cookie Monster.
Does your puppy have a bit of a sweet tooth? BoxDog's handmade treats will do just the trick. You can choose from some adorable, colorful, and flavorful dog treats like:
- Cookie gift box that comes with 5 handmade cookies and a 6 oz bag of treats. These cookies come in a variety of themes that differ every month.
- Ocean creatures box that has 5 delicious cookies made in the shape of sea creatures like starfish, octopus, and seahorse.
- Cookie Monster cookies, need we say more?
- Gourmet cookie assortment
- Frosted woof bones in various colors
- Puparillos, dog biscuit cigars
- BoxDog bagels
- BoxDog cheese sticks
- BoxDog peanut butter bones
BoxDog also has a range of grain-free treats, including cranberry cookies, cake pops, and peanut butter bacon bones. And the best part is that you and your dog can partake in these delectable delights together because the cookies are made for human consumption, as well.
You can choose from gear like bandanas and cool collars, or skincare products like sunscreen. The skincare products are also vegan and cruelty-free. So, you can feel good, making your dog feel good. It's also nice that BoxDog doesn't charge extra for larger dogs or for heavy chewers. Just sayin'.
I ordered this as a one-stop-shop for my pup's first Christmas. Our box was delayed because of a warehouse issue. They 2 day shipped us a new box so it'd be here in time for the holiday! We got the Winter Seasonal box in time for a Santa delivery. Absolute jaw drop. How did we get all this for that price?!? Everything so far is great quality. Boomer loved his s'mores treat (which even smelled and felt like people s'mores!) I am obsessed with our first box and he loves it all! - Keri
My dog loves the treats. I left them with a dog babysitter when I was out of town for two weeks and said to parcel them out one a day and a new toy every once in a while. This kept my dog happy in my absence. I like them so much we have ordered extras. - Toe
I tried to upload pictures and a video but it wouldn’t let me. Anywho.. this dog box is by far the best one and I’ve tried literally all of them. My Doberman is sensitive to everything and these treats don’t bother him at all. The toys he loves they last longer that most other toys my dog is extremely destructive. The customer service from this company is far beyond the competition... they have my Business for as long as they want it..- Timothy White
We have had one box so far and my dogs were VERY happy. My tough chewer took a couple of days to make a hole in the soft toy and loves the ball. He and my old dog went crazy for the treats, even the big,crunchy ones that the old boy will usually reject. The extras were very useful. Good value for money. Already looking forward to the next delivery and my dogs know the box now so will be excited to see it! - KTK
BoxDog has a standard plan that delivers four giant boxes every season (quarterly). These boxes are bigger than your standard pet box, and they’re meant to last for approximately three months (till you get your next shipment).
If you just can’t wait or know your dog will finish everything before the mailman turns around, you can opt for the monthly BoxDog instead. These boxes are delivered on a month-to-month basis, and you can cancel at any time. No commitment. The monthly boxes are complete build-a-box fashion, meaning you pick what goes into your box. Here’s a list of prices for each:
|Type of box
|Price per box
||4 treats, 1 skincare item, choice of toy, clothing, or gear
||4 bags of treats, 1 skincare product, choice of toy, clothing, or gear
The contents of these boxes are valued at over $125, so you are really getting a ton for your money. BoxDog boxes ship for free within the 48 contiguous United States. It costs $12 to ship to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico, and $20 to ship to the UK and Canada. And btw, members get a discounted rate on all items, up to 70% off the retail prices.
