We love to spoil our pets, possibly more than we spoil ourselves. We give our dogs top-rated food, squeaky toys to chew on, and countless kisses. And we like to mix it up to keep things interesting, which is where dog subscription boxes come in. Similar to subscription boxes for people, dog subscription boxes offer the opportunity to try new products, often at a good value. A subscription box can also fill a need—like delivering training treats regularly—which means one fewer errand to run.
You might have heard of one or two of these pet subscription boxes, but many new ones cater to the different needs of your pup. From health to fashionable outfits to a new indestructible dog toy or puzzle toy every few weeks, there is a box that suits you and your dog, even dogs that can be left alone and the smartest dog breeds.
One of the most popular dog subscriptions, BarkBox is our pick for the best all-around option. While it’s affordable, the main draw is the fun themes like Home Fur Thanksgiving, Snoopy, and magic that dogs and their owners will both enjoy. Every box comes with toys, two bags of all-natural dog treats, and a chew, each based on the monthly theme. You can customize the box for your pooch based on size (large or small breeds) and chewing style (super chewer or regular).
Cost: Starting at $23
Chewy Goody Box
Best for gifting
Chewy, the site dog owners know and love for everything from food to dog beds, also offers curated gift boxes for doggie birthdays, the holidays, or just because. The boxes are generally a mix of treats, toys, blankets, bandanas, and more. It’s a great way to try sample sizes of new products, too.
Frequency: N/A (individual orders)
Cost: Starting at $25
Best for variety
Your dog will be anticipating the arrival of this entertaining monthly box that contains his two favorite things: fun toys and yummy treats. Everything is made from natural materials and ingredients and produced in the USA, so you can trust it’s safe for your furry pal. When you sign up, you can customize the box to the size of your dog as well as the toys and treats you think your pup will most enjoy (or pick a toys-only box). The entry-level Popular Pooch box contains two treats, two toys, and one chew. This subscription dog box also makes a perfect gift for dog lovers.
Cost: Starting at $21
Best for customizing
If you are someone who doesn’t love surprises, this is the dog subscription box for you since you can fully customize it. It’s a BYOD, or build-your-own-delivery service, meaning you choose whatever you want to give your pup that month. Prices vary depending on the number of items you include in your case. Surprise and single, non-subscription boxes are also available to purchase. Pup Joy also has a VIP program that grants you free shipping, percentage discounts, and referrals.
Cost: Starting at $25
Best for exclusivity
Box Dog allows you to select what you want your dog subscription box to feature ranging from handmade treats, vegan skincare, dog jackets and bandanas, fun gadgets, and more. The discerning owner will appreciate that all the items are exclusive to Box Dog. When it comes to treats, you can request grain-free treats and note if your dog has any allergies. In fact, all ingredients are listed on each treat, and many are baked similarly to human cookies.
Cost: Starting at $35
Best for healthy treats
When it comes to feeding your dog, you can’t go wrong with all-natural treats and chews, and this is one of the top dog subscription boxes for that. Every delivery has four types of natural and safe meat chews for your pup to enjoy. Ingredients are expertly sourced—no rawhide or ingredients from far flung locations—to keep your dog healthy and jovial. The boxes are available for small dogs, medium dog breeds, and large dog breeds.
Frequency: Every 2 to 24 weeks. You choose!
Best for puppies
As the name suggests, PupBox is a subscription service that caters to puppies. In each box, you’ll find those must-haves for raising a puppy from tips for teaching, tools, treats, and accessories for grooming. The site also offers month-by-month training strategies based on puppy’s age and developmental stage to help guide you. By the time they have stopped chewing on everything and get past the puppy stage, you’ll have a well-behaved dog in your family.
Cost: Starting at $29
Best for giving back
For every box purchased, Rescue Box donates 124 meals to shelter animals. What your furry friend will receive is five premium pet products based on a fun monthly or holiday-related theme. Rescue Box only sends premium products, so you can feel good and do good at the same time. It offers boxes for cats as well (that’s right, we haven’t forgotten about you, cat lovers).
