Spoiling The Mutt: PetBox Review!

by agirlandhermutt on May 21, 2014

Korky and I have lived in 6 different apartments together. He also had a brief stint living with my parents when I moved to Connecticut. The last place we lived was our home. It felt right. It was just the two of us and we really became the best of roommates. As I was moving in with the BF/Fiance a little over a month ago I started to get nervous about Kork. Would he be ok? How long would it take to adjust? Would he want to go “home”?

After about 2 days my questions were answered. Korky was going to adjust just fine. He loves having attention from two people. The space is HUGE and perfect for him to run around/get into things. He is still with me and as happy as a little nugget can be.

Kork is truly my best bud so when the folks at PetBox contacted me to see if we would be interested in trying out one of their dog boxes I figured it was worth the look to see how I could spoil him.

PetBox is a monthly subscription box that allows you to select a mix of toys, treat and accessories for your pet OR to be surprised with a box that is selected by the PetBox people.

I was sent a box for review so my box was a surprise box for both of us!

I should mention that I love getting packages on my front porch. There is something fun about getting a little cardboard box saying hello when I come home from work.

Korky was intrigued when I told him it was for him. He was probably hoping that the box included a little comb for those out of control bangs. Fortunately, he does not look as homeless these days. 😉

The box was nicely packaged and everything stayed where it was supposed to. Question for any of you who get this box now or in the future…do they normally fill this top part of the box out or is this for me to fill out? Just for pictures?

If any of you have ever received one of the monthly beauty box subscriptions you know that one of the worst things you can get in your box is some type of liquid that has spilled out of it’s container. Fortunately, everything in this box was safe and sound in its’ original packaging.


Here is a look at our surprise treats.

One of the biggest things for me when looking at these monthly subscription boxes is if I am getting enough bang for the buck. I did some investigation on what each of these products would cost on their own if I bought them outright and the total for this box was $81.56. Not bad for a $29 haul, right?!

After receiving the surprise PetBox I realized that Korky and I would do better actually selecting the products ourselves because I don’t really like to experiment with treats. Kork has a SUPER sensitive stomach that we constantly battle. Unfortunately, most of these fun treats just are TOO much fun for Korky. Fortunately that option is available! PetBox has a variety of items to choose from for your box so if a particular type of product wasn’t your thing you could just choose something else. You can choose from toys, grooming products, treats, accessories and many other options.

That little poo bag holder went right on our leash, the photo book onto our coffee table and the bowtie onto his collar.

The little bowtie just attached to your exisiting collar so Kork can wear it and it not bother him one bit. I think he looks quite dashing, don’t you?!

No, you can’t see the bowtie as well in this pic but he is just SO.DANG.CUTE!

In addition to spoiling your super cute pet when you order a PetBox, you are also helping out other animals. PetBox feeds a rescue animal for each box shipped. They also host a #PetBoxFridays program on social media that lets the whole social media community nominate shelters to receive that week’s shipment of food and supplies. My little puppy loving heart loves this idea!

So do you, your pet and the pet community some good and try out the PetBox. Let me know what you think of it when you do!

*Just a note…I received this PetBox free of charge. As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own.*

Thanks for the review – I’ve been thinking about getting one of these for Milton, but I wasn’t sure if it was worth the money.

Also, Korky’s bangs are AMAZING. He is so handsome.

Why thank ya! Milton definitely needs a PetBox. Totally worth the money!

I know where you’re coming from… I was SO anxious moving Griffy into a new home, especially with my bf who who didn’t have a pet. Questions like, “will he pee in every room?” “will he bark and make the neighbors hate us?” “will he be sad we are leaving our old neighborhood?” plagued me for weeks before the move. But he did just fine.

We have the same battled with a sensitive-stomach. We tend to shy away from treats altogether unless we’ve had them before and we know we won’t be seeing them again later ;). LOVE that bowtie… I think Griffy needs one.

Oh gosh! Yes! Korky isn’t a barker but I am always worried he will become one when I move into a new place. 🙂

Korky only has treats now that are made by the same company that makes his dog food. Basically the exact same food but in a fun new shape! 😉

A bowtie is a must!
