I’m pretty sure February was the best month in the history of Casper’s life. Cindy and I decided to jump aboard the get-a-box-of-random-stuff-for-your-dog-sent-to-your-door-every-month craze by checking out two boxes: One from a plucky little upstart called Barkbox, and one from Petflow, a company that specializes in pet food delivery.
Today, we’re gonna dive into the goodies that came in our February Petflow “Spoiled Rotten” box. Tomorrow, we’ll tell you all about our February Barkbox.
While this will be a straightforward scale-of-one-to-ten rating of each the goodies in these boxes, the real winner here is Casper, who has been enjoying the toys and treats from these two boxes nonstop. Fat. Happy. Spoiled.
Petflow “Spoiled Rotten” Box:
Cost: $24.99/ month for $40 worth of products
Cool things about this box: All the edible products in Petflow’s boxes are made in the USA. If you have a cat, you can also get a box just for cats!
Number of items in the box: 8
Item #1: Luther’s Treats. Dog biscuits made with oats and oat flour, lavender and chamomile. Casper enjoyed their crunchiness. Casper says 8/10 paws.
Item #2: Clear Conscience Tender Beer & Cheddar Sliders. The treats look and smell like pieces of beef jerky. Full of beefy goodness. These treats need to be refrigerated after they’re opened (I found that out the hard way). Casper says 9/10 paws.
Item #3: Ark Naturals BREATH-LESS Brushless Toothpaste Mini Dog Treats. I’ll save the detail of this product for a future review, but the makers claim these treats help keep your dog’s teeth clean. Casper says 7/10 paws.
Item #4: Bright Bits Medium Single (Spearmint Flavor). A larger, single treat that is also supposed to help keep poochie’s chompers clean. Not Casper’s favorite treat in the bunch, but still good enough for 6/10 paws.
Item #5: Nutrisca Salmon and Chickpea Stew Canned Dog Food. The CEO of Nutrisca can be seen in a YouTube clip eating a can of this food for lunch. It’s possible that he enjoyed it more than Casper, who was quite “meh” about it. Casper gives it 4/10 paws.
Item #6: Silver Dog Charm Key Chain. It’s a keychain with some cute little doggie charms on it. Some folks might have a use for it, but this one totally felt like a filler item to me. Casper and I are giving this one 1/10 paws.
Item #7: Gimme Gummies. This is a bear-shaped, Kong-esque toy that you fill with treats. This product sets itself apart from the Kong thanks to the fact that you can bake treats right inside it (oven safe up to 450 degrees) or freeze it. Sounds cool. We haven’t used it yet. Casper isn’t a huge fan of digging treats out of toys, but we understand that other dogs love ‘em. Casper says 7/10 paws, based on its cool potential.
Item #8: Natural Balance Turkey Food Roll. In the past, I used these rolls as a grated food topper for Casper’s food. Initially, he’s psyched about having this roll grated up in his dinner–typically, he gets tired of the taste after about a week. Casper says 6/10 paws.
Overall, not a bad box. Lots of yummy eats that Casper thoroughly appreciated. We would have liked to see some sort of stuffed toy or maybe a bully stick to round out this box.
Tune in Tuesday for our review of Barkbox!
