The Goods

    1. Gourmet American Flag Cookie. Regular price: $6.99

image

Kona would not eat this at first. I tried breaking it up and he only ate the smallest pieces, so I just broke it in to as tiny pieces as I could and eventually he ate it all. I tasted it out of curiosity and it was definitely for dogs, but I did taste a definite hint of graham cracker flavor which I thought was cool. Here is Kona pretending not to notice the treat… he is silly sometimes :).

  2. Blue Stars Dog Bandana. Regular price: $3.50

image

This bandana was huge, that’s the first thing I noticed. I had to fold it a bunch to get it to a size Kona would look OK in. It is really cute though. To me, it is very Fourth of July-ish, and since the box came on the 30th the flare is a little late. I guess patriotism can be in style any time, though!

   3. Grill-icious  All Natural Beef Treats – Loving Pets. Regular price: $7.00

image

“Loving Pets Grill-icious Bite Size Beef Treats will have your dog sizzling with excitement. These lean and tasty “flame-kissed” meats are mixed with antioxidant-rich sweet potato. When you give your pet Grill-icious, you can feel great knowing your pet is getting the best because Grill-icious treats are free of soy, wheat, gluten, corn and grain and have no additives or preservatives.”

These are shaped like little burger patties and are more hard than soft. Kona eats them without needing me to break them first, though, so that’s good. I love any treats that are healthy AND Kona approved!

  4. Bone and Paw Print Mold and Recipe for Pupsicles. Regular price: $6.95

This is a mold for “Pupsicles”, which are dog popsicles. It comes with a recipe but not the ingredients. To make these you need 2 bananas, 1/8 cup honey, 33oz plain yogurt and ½ cup peanut butter. I have not made them yet (I haven’t been to grocery store), but these sound awesome! I’m definitely going to try one for myself…

   5. Mini Encyclopedia of Dog Health – Roberta Baxter. Regular price: $12.95

image

Keeping a dog in good health from its puppy stage to old age is every owner’s responsibility. This profusely illustrated book gives dog owners the information, advice and guidance they need to deal with everything from minor canine complaints to life-threatening problems. It begins with a detailed section on dog anatomy, illustrating a dog’s muscles and skin, digestive and urinary systems, blood and respiratory systems, nervous system, and reproductive system. The sections that follow cover:

  • Keeping Your Dog Healthy: Feeding, exercise, grooming, breeding and puppy care, and geriatric care
  • Guide to Health Problems: Visual checklist of symptoms, skeleton and muscles, skin wounds, digestive disorders, liver and urinary problems, heart and circulation, respiratory conditions, senses and nervous system, and reproductive problems
  • First Aid and Essential Techniques: Maintaining a first aid kit, emergency scenarios and how to cope with them, bandaging techniques, and nursing a sick dog

The book is illustrated with approximately 400 color photos, diagrams, and other graphics. I love that this exists, so I can use it as a reference point when I’m worried about Kona. I love Kona so much that I worry about him every time something out of the ordinary happens, like when his poop looks different or he seems extra tired. It will be nice to have this to reference when I have questions and figure out what’s going on, on my own

  6. Chilled Pet Water Bowl – Frosty Bowl. Regular Price: $7.50

image

This pet bowl provides your pet with a constant reservoir of cool, clean water. The bowl keeps your pets water cold and fresh for 8 hours or longer. It’s non-toxic gel core freezes in 2 hours and lasts longer than ice. Just freeze it, insert into the base of the bowl and fill. The bowl is compact and chew resistant with a slide-proof base. My favorite thing about this bowl is that it is dishwasher safe. This way on Saturday’s when I clean I can just throw it in the dishwasher with the rest of the dishes and not have to hand wash it. Cold water is something I’m pretty sure only humans desire, animals are probably used to warm water in the summer. This is actually a pretty pointless novelty item, but I can see why some types of dog owners would be attracted to it, lol!

7. Spa-In-A-Sponge for Dogs – Spongeables. Regular price: $6.99

image

Spongeables new “spa in a sponge” for dogs is infused with natural PH balanced shampoo for a clean shiny coat, gentle aloe vera for healthy skin, and tea tree oil to prevent hot spots and skin irritations. It has built-in conditioner for soft fur and is great to use for a quick bath. Normally I groom Kona, but I’ll keep this on hand in case he gets in to a mess and I have to bathe him on the spot.

      8. Woodstock Peanuts Stuffed Dog Toy with Squeaker. Regular price: $14.99

image

This toy is fluffy, plush, and has a loud squeaker. This is Kona’s absolute favorite type of toy, so I knew he would love it. We played fetch for a bit and then he followed me around with it in his mouth until he realized I was done playing, lol. I like this toy because it’s Woodstock, duh!

Value

The total value of the items in this month’s box is $66.87. The subscription is $24/month with the month to month subscription. This is the subscription option I pay for, but there are less expensive plans if you buy all at once. I think the value is great, I am staying subscribed to this one! A lot of the boxes I am subscribed to occasionally have values more than twice the cost of the box, but Pet Treater is unique in that every box is at least 2x as valuable as the cost. If you only want to subscribe to ONE box for pets, this is the box I suggest.
