Since our BarkBox subscription ran out I decided to get just a six month plan of another one for the pups. There are lots to choose from but I went with a Canadian one that wasn’t hugely expensive. Bowzer Box sends out a selection of treats and toys carefully selected to make you and your dog happy. You start off by selecting your dog size from small, medium, or large. You then pick a term from 1,3, or 6 months. All plans automatically renew but there is a slight discount for the longer terms. Boxes start at $29.00 a month and there is a $4.50 shipping charge also. They donate 10% of the fee to dogs in need, so you get to feel good about helping without having to do anything.
The box was full to the top again and once you remove the paper you can see a bit of what you got.
The theme this month is It’s A Zoo Out There and they play on that two ways. One is that the stuff is zoo themed and the other is that the malls are getting crazy with holidays coming up. The card gives you a bit about each item and the website for them.
Rollover Premium Pet Food Stuffed Beef Hooves
These are a cleaned hoof, stuffed with beef liver, lung, heart, and kidney. They also do add some filler and minerals in there. These are made in High River, AB. and since the hoof is fully filled your pup has to work a bit to get all of it out. Archie has a bone that he has been working on for a while but he’ll happily trade it in for this I think.
Fruitables Skinny Minis Grilled Bison Flavour
These are a soft chewy treat that are calorie wise for chubby pets. Thankfully Archie is one of those. These are made more for a small dog then one his size. These are mostly made up of potato and rice but there is some actual bison in there too. They are also free of gluten, wheat, corn, and soy.
Shed Guard Fresh Scent
I think this is more for me then Archie but with holiday season and nice clothes coming up this will be good for spraying down the chairs. You spray this on a surface that has pet hair on it, wait for it to dry, then use the brush cap or vacuum to easily remove the hair. You can also spray it on clothes and then toss in the dryer for a few minutes to get rid of hair that way.
One 4 Pets Eco Friendly Pet Waste Bags
So what makes these ones special from the regular ones is that they are biodegradable, which is pretty cool. Once you throw them away they actual dissolve into components that are not harmful and won’t be still floating around the landfill in 50 years. We don’t use these bags too often as Archie has ginormous craps that require a grocery bag but they are handy to have around. They even double as barf bags in a pinch.
Multipet Loofa Zebra (Dog)
I’m not sure why they call this dog zebra but I guess it’s the colouring? He has a squeaker in the middle and lots of things that stick out that can be chewed off. Every once in a while a big long toy like this becomes a sucky toy for Archie. It’s so cute and even though it becomes super slobbery you just want to let him go at it.
I once again have to complain that I selected a large dog package and the treats are not all made for big dogs. The hoof and toy definitely are, which is good. I am always left feeling just a little disappointed with this box. They send out good stuff but it really is not as good as BarkBox was. We have three more to go in this one so we’ll see if they can change my mind. I do love that they are Canadian, and source from Canada for at least some of the items.
