Pooch Party Packs June 2015 Box Review

Pooch Party Packs is a new subscription box for dogs that sends 4 or 5 treats, toys, and/or grooming supplies every month. Their unique angle is that each month they include a toy or treat from a small pet business in the US, which I really love. I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses and enjoy buying handmade and/or products, so the idea of doing the same for my dog is very appealing.

Pooch Party Packs offers three different size options for your dog: small (10-20 pounds), medium (20-50 pounds), and large (50+ pounds). Maddie is around 46ish pounds but we always size up for her, so we received the box for large dogs. 

Pooch Party Packs costs $34.99/month, $31.99/month with a 3-month subscription, or $29.99/month with a 6-month subscription.

This is so adorable! I was reluctant to let Maddie play with it since it’s just so darling and I know she would shred it within minutes. But in the end I relented…

And yep! It was completely obliterated almost instantly. I literally took this picture a minute after I gave her the toy.

I never considered using a spray in between baths for Maddie, so this was an interesting product to try. I think Maddie’s coat is so short it just made her feel almost greasy, so we’ll probably have to pass this on to one of her doggie friends. I’m sure it is a good product for dogs with longer hair, it just didn’t work for us.

Digging the patriotic bandana print! It’s going to be perfect for Fourth of July weekend! The reverse side is a white background with stars. I like that this is designed to slip over the collar, and also that it’s handmade by a small business.

Super cute and I like that they’re individually wrapped, but I do wish we had gotten more variety instead of 3 cookies from the same company. Maddie loves cookies and these were a hit with her. All of Pawsitively Gourmet cookies are hand decorated and manufactured in the USA with only USA grown ingredients.

Pooch Party Packs June 2015 Box ReviewOverall it was a mixed bag for us, mostly because the spray didn’t work out and that was a good chunk of the box value. The overall value came to $40.89, which is decent for a pet box. It just wasn’t a good fit for my dog since the spray is useless and the plush toy was very flimsy. I’m a bit disappointed since I received such a wonderful box in May and this one feels a bit thin like it’s missing an item or something. But I’m hopeful that when I try PPP again in the future it will be better. Like I mentioned in my previous review, I do think there’s a bit of extra value in discovering new small businesses that you otherwise would not have access to.
