I love treating my dog Eddie and recently was asked if he wanted to try a Pawsomebox. A Pawsomebox is a subscription box for dogs that contains treats and other items. I love the name, Pawsomebox, it made me smile. If you have a cat then you can treat them to a Purrfectbox instead.
The Pawsomebox contains 6 products which can be treats, toys, accessories or hygiene products. The box is sent out once a month and costs £19.90 for a month subscription. Subscriptions are for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 12 months and the longer you choose the cheaper it is. When ordering you need to choose the size of your dog, tiny, small, medium or large. I like the way it is tailored to the dogs size as not all toys and treats suit smaller dogs like Eddie.
The Pawsomebox is dispatched around the 15th of each month and an email is sent out to let you know it is on the way. When the box arrived Eddie seemed to know it was for him and sat excitedly waiting for it to be opened. He was really interested to find out what was in the box, I think he could smell the treats. I finally put him out of his misery and opened the box.
Contents of the Pawsomebox
Inside the August Pawsome box we found a great selection of goodies. There were three toys, two different types of treats and a fabric water bowl. The box also contains paw notes which is a great little magazine with information about dogs. The section about learning to speak your dogs language was really interesting. It explains why dogs do not like to be approached from front and other things I never knew.
The options water bowl will be very useful. When we go on trips with Eddie I take water in water bottles for him but he finds these difficult to drink out of. The fabric bowl is ideal for packing for long walks and trips in the car and can be folded away when not in use. We will have to go on a trip soon and try it out. I will have to add it to my list of essentials for travelling with dogs.
The Gimdog pudding was a totally new product to me. It is a creamy pudding which is used to top dried dog food. Only a few teaspoonfuls need to be used at one time. Eddie loved this and lapped it up very quickly. The sushi rolls were also a great success. They contain fish and Eddie absolutely loves them.
When it comes to toys Eddie knows what he likes and he made a beeline for the squeaky ball toy. He has had great fun playing with this and it is his new favourite toy. As well as being ball shaped it has legs which makes it much easier for him to pick up in his month. There were two other toys in the box, a squeaky plastic teddy bear and a soft squeaky bone. Whilst he has played with these they have not been as much as a hit as this orange ball. Every dog is different so a selection of toys is a great idea.

What did we think of the Pawsomebox?
The Pawsomebox contains a great selection of treats and toys for your dog. Eddie loved the toys and was happy with the treats. I was also really pleased with the water bowl which will get a lot of use while we are out and about. If you love to spoil your dog the Pawsomebox is a great idea. It would also make a lovely gift for a dog owner. The value of the products was certainly around the same price or more than the cost of the box and it is nice to open the box and be surprised. The packaging of the box was thought out really well and inside the tissue paper wrapping had paw prints on which was a nice touch.
