The Goods

  1. KONG Squiggles. Regular price: $6.90 (if it is size medium)

This is a fun squeaky toy. It is crinkled and short but when you pull on it it stretches to about twice as long! It has minimal stuffing and a squeaker at the top and bottom. My dog, Kona, loves this toy so much! It’s great for tug-of-war fetch (he fetches it and brings it back but won’t let me throw it again without a good game of tug-of-war first).

2. SPOT Dura-Fused Leather Toy. Regular price: $5.19

I really tried to get Kona to play with this toy, but he just refused. He seems to only like toys that either have fur, squeak, or both. But if they don’t have either of those aspects he is not interested. Bummer!

3. FouFou Dog Pet Wipes. Regular price: $2.77

These are made with natural bamboo fibers and are pre-moistened with natural cleansers and deodorizers. Kona was recently diagnosed with allergies, and I have to wipe off his paws after every walk to help prevent the allergies from flaring up. These wipes are perfect for doing just that, and I would have never even thought to use them if it hadn’t been for this subscription!

4. SPOT Football. Regular price: $2.62

Kona loved this toy! Fur? Check. Squeaky? Check. He was super excited when we were playing with this toy, doing a sort of run/prance when he’d go fetch it, and run in circles while I held it before I threw. It was clear this was his favorite toy of the bunch, because his feelings about toys are pretty transparent in how he acts. Winning!

5. It’s Purely Natural Beef Jerky. Regular price: $4.26

These treats felt like freeze dried blocks of meat. I’ve bought jerky treats before and they’ve all felt like human beef jerky, but this felt nothing like it. The consistency was similar to a hard cookie. These treats are made in the USA, and free of glycerin, soy, gluten, and wheat. I am impressed with the ingredients, just beef, tocopherols, and rosemary extract. I looked up tocopherols, and it’s a natural preservative that uses compounds found in wheat germ oil, egg yolk, and leafy vegetables, that collectively constitute vitamin E. It is a safer, natural alternative to chemical preservatives. Kona absolutely loved these!

6. Natural Value Sweet Potato Crisps. Regular price: $1.57

These feel like Funions and are air puffed, low fat and low calorie. They’re also made in the USA. Kona really enjoyed these tasty treats! They also only have 3 ingredients (sweet potatoes, rice, and flour). You know how people feed their kids healthy foods by disguising them as snacks and candy? This is the dog equivalent of that lol. Good and good for you.

Value

The total value for the items in this month’s box is about $23.00. The cost for the subscription is $25.00/mo if you pay monthly, $23.00/mo for 3 month subscription, and $19.00/mo for a year subscription. Most of the prices I found for these items were “on sale” (a higher price with a line through it and the price I used shown next to it). But I’m sure the owners of this company buying in bulk are getting an even better price so I don’t think I’m underestimating. Either way I think it’s worth the price to surprise Kona with new treats and toys every month, and I like the excitement of not knowing what he’s going to get until it arrives!
