Pet Gift Box Review, June 2015 + $5 Discount on First Box!

June's Pet Gift Box managed to both delight and disgust.  If you have a dog, you know that disgust on the human's part often means delight for the canine.  "Jurassic Bark" is the theme for this box which contains five dinosaur themed items, one big toy and several treats and snacks.  I can't say I've EVER had the same reaction when opening a subscription box on!

I love the gift tag on the outer box which is hand addressed to my pup Tucker...nice personal touch!

First glance shows a lot of lavender....then, a quick jolt of disbelief when I realize what's included in this box.

The product card is brief; it gives the theme, a very brief description of each item and its retail price.

OK, let's just deal with this so I can move on.  There is an extra large turkey foot in this box, claws and all.  This is billed as a "Raptor Claw", meant to bring out your dog's inner Tyrannosaurus.  I am beyond repulsed; Tucker is beyond delighted.  I can't even look at this thing.  I don't want to touch it.  I don't want to unwrap it.  I don't want to deal with it.  I don't care if it is all natural, fully digestible, etc.  Tucker will have to enjoy this outdoors; I do not want it in the house.  Pet Gift Box, PLEASE don't send something like this again!  

Moving on to happier items...there is a big lavender plush Tyrannosaurus from Petlou.  This has a squeaker inside (the one in ours is very weak, almost to the point of being non-functional) and the torso is also stuffed with a crinkly material that a lot of dogs will enjoy. Very cute toy!

There is a package containing two Dino Tracks cookies from D.O.G. (Daisy & Oscar's Gourmet Bakery).  These are fresh baked all natural dog treats that I know Tucker will love.

Next are two Beastie Bars which are all natural and contain peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples, bananas and honey.  One of these is chicken flavored; the other is beef.  These are always a hit with Tucker.

This big 5 oz. lavender bag contains Paleo Treats from "I'd Rather Be With My Dog". These are formulated with ginger and coconut oil to improve a dog's digestive health.  I'm particularly glad to get these as Tucker has been having digestive problems....he grazes on grass, then I have to deal with the consequences. Maybe/hopefully this will be a solution.

With a retail value of about $35, this WOULD have been a great box if not for that repulsive turkey foot.  The theme was terrific and Tucker especially appreciates that all but one item is edible.  I particularly like that all of these products (except the dino) are made in the U.S.A. We all know that's important when it comes to your pet's well-being.

If you're interested in trying Pet Gift Box, the cost is $27.99 per month with discounts for longer term subscriptions.  If you sign up for a year, the monthly cost is only $17.99 a month, an absolute bargain for the quantity and quality of products you receive. Click here for a $5 discount on your first box!

I am really tempted to just toss the turkey foot but there is a set of big pleading brown eyes fixated on it....................
