November, 2016 - "Be Thankful" Dapper Dog Box
The theme for the November Dapper Dog Box is “Be Thankful”.
The Toy in the November Dapper Dog Box is:
- Spot Plush Football - (retail value $3.50) This is a plush stuffed football that houses a squeaker in the middle. Bruce Wayne hasn’t found the squeaker yet, as he doesn’t usually bite down on plush toys hard enough to squeak them, lol. He’s always very delicate when it comes to stuffed toys. Even though it’s too thick for him to get his Chi-Chi mouth around, it is light enough for him to toss around.
The Treats in the November Dapper Dog Box are:
- Grandma Lucy’s Sweet Potato Treats - (retail value $12.99 for 2.0 0z.) I know that this seems like a costly treat for only 2.0 oz., however, keep in mind that freeze-dried treats are always lighter in weight since they are well, freeze-dried. You actually get a good amount of product in this bag. I am always super happy to receive single-ingredient treats for Bruce Wayne and he loves these sweet potato treats! :-)
- CocoTherapy Fruit Crunch - (retail value $12.00 for 1.5 oz.) OMG! I couldn’t be happier to get these treats in our box! I was first introduced to the CocoTherapy brand through our first Dapper Dog Box and Bruce Wayne absolutely loved them and I love the ingredients! This is our first experience with the “fruit crunch”. This is what I would describe as a super healthy trail mix for dogs. Finding healthy yummy treats for Bruce Wayne makes me so happy and I’m so thankful to The Dapper Dog Box for introducing me to this healthy brand.
With that being said, I always vow to keep our reviews completely 100% honest! As you can see in the “first impressions” video below, Bruce Wayne did not like the fruit crunch, however, Bruce Wayne is very picky and does not often eat a new treat right away, so it’s not that surprising to me. I will try again in a day or two. He is also very finicky about textures, lol. (Feel free to reach out to us to see if he warmed up to it on our second attempt.)
- Clear Conscience Pet Sliders - (retail value $3.80 for 2 sticks .5 oz) The flavor we received is Beef, which is Bruce Wayne’s favorite protein by far! The sticks would make for a great treat for a larger dog and can easily be broken down into smaller pieces for a smaller dog like Bruce Wayne. They make for a great on the go treat for your dog. We have a ton of Instagram friends that love this brand. Unfortunately, because Bruce Wayne has to watch his fat intake at this time, we will have to either hold these until his next round of testing or give them to his crazy Uncle Patches.
The Extra/Accessory in the November Dapper Dog Box is:
- Coco & Pistachio Dog Bandana - (retail value $32.00) Oh my goodness! What a great score! The bandana alone basically covers the cost of this amazing box. Again, this is a company that I’m being introduced to by The Dapper Dog Box (such a huge benefit of subscription boxes.) We received the Red Tartan Plaid, which I absolutely adore. Red is one of my favorite colors on Bruce Wayne. It really pops against his black and white fur. I love the fringed sides and the leather label adds to the class of this bandana. Within our dust bag is a coupon for a free monogramed leather plate added onto your next bandana, which we will certainly have to take advantage of.
Estimated Value of the November Dapper Dog Box $64.29 (OMG)
Overall Opinion: The theme of “be thankful” is the perfect theme, as I was truly thankful to have received this box! The value alone is amazing, but I honestly loved every product we received! The football toy is great considering we are in football season. I know some people like to get more toys than treats, but I love getting more treats than toys because honestly, that’s what Bruce Wayne likes more. And The Dapper Dog Box always sends the best treats! I often joke that the owner, Kerrie, crawls around in my head and figures out the exact treats I want to give to Bruce Wayne, LOL. And the bandana is just icing on the cake! It’s such an amazing accessory to receive in our box. I was blown away when I actually got to see and feel it.
B-DUBS VERDICT: Bruce Wayne gives the November Dapper Dog Box 4 out of 4 grinchy paws
