Oh, Casper. You adorable, slightly overweight, lucky little product tester, you.
In just a few short months, Casper has become quite the connoisseur in the monthly dog goodies-by-mail department.
Our research has concluded that a quality goodie box should include the following: Something to chew, something to eat, and something to squeak. We recently put PoochPax to the test. What did Casper think? Here’s his official item-by-item rating, along with some details for the box:
Cost: $29 for one month, $24 a month for a 3-month subscription, or $19 a month for a 6-month subscription.
Cool things about this box: Box includes goodies that are size-appropriate for your dog.
Number of items in the box: 6
Item #1: Smokehouse Pet Bacon Twist. Casper was a fan. It took him awhile to finish this, mainly because it was pretty large in size. In this case, that ended up being a good thing, since I was able to easily cut in into smaller segments for him. He seemed to like the taste and it was easy for him to chew. Casper says 9/10 Paws.
Item #2: Flash & Glow Toy Ball. Unfortunately, this toy was too big for Casper’s little mouth. Since we weren’t able to test this one, we’re going to have to give it an “Incomplete.”
Item #3: A-Plush Pet Toys Stuffed Frog. Casper absolutely loves this toy. Durable and a fun shape. 10/10 Paws.
Item #4: Spunkeez Tug Toy. While Casper loves a good game of Tug ‘o War, he’ll only tug with stuffed toys. He wasn’t a fan of this toy’s rubber texture. 1/10 Paws.
Item #5: Exclusively Dog “Smoochers” Pumpkin Flavor Dog Treats. High-quality treat. Took Casper some time to get used to the pumpkiny flavor, but he’s warming up to them. 6/10 Paws.
Item #6: “Yaky Yam” Chicken Flavored Treats From Himalayan Dog Chew. Love love loved these treats. Loves the crunch, loves the taste, hates that I break them in small pieces for him so the treats will last longer. 10/10 Paws.
Overall, this box had a great mix of products. The treats were full-size packs, NOT small sample sizes. The toys were high-quality, although two of the toys didn’t work out for us (the box we received from PoochPax was a sample and not tailored to Casper’s size–I’m sure had it been, the toys would have been more small-dog friendly).
PoochPax is definitely worth a try. You can check out their website for full details on subscription lengths and packages.
