October, 2016 - Subscription Box Ratings

Yeah, yeah, yeah …. I know, I haven’t done this series in forever! :-( Forgive me, but life has been a bit busy and Bruce Wayne’s health concerns took priority over everything!

Needless to say, we are bringing this series back …. Because, why not? It’s fun for us to showcase our feelings about the month’s subscription boxes and fun for us to give away our favorite box to a friend of ours.

For October, we had the pleasure of receiving boxes from BarkBox, PoochPerks, The Dapper Dog Box and Pet GiftBox. If you are interested in purchasing any of these boxes, I will include links and discount codes at the end of the post.

Below is our “ranking system” for the October subscription boxes we received. I’d like to remind everyone that this ranking system is just for fun and completely based on Bruce Wayne’s preferences. As many of you know, Bruce Wayne is extremely picky and what he likes, your dog might not like and vice versa. This is our way to give back to our supportive friends and let you try a box you might not have had the pleasure of trying yet. :-) Keep reading for a chance to win a box!

Box Name Toys Treats Extras/Accessories Overall Value Rating
BarkBox 1 3 3 3 3
PoochPerks 3 1 n/a 1 1
The Dapper Dog Box 4 1 2 2 2
Pet GiftBox 2 4 2 4 4

Bottom Line: For the month of October, our favorite subscription box was PoochPerks! I absolutely loved the treats that came in our box. Bruce Wayne is still chowing down on the pumpkin treats and the pumpkin puree was a huge hit in aiding him to eat his chicken and rice meals when he had to eat a modified diet. The ZippyPaws bat toys were the perfect size for Bruce Wayne and he has actually still been throwing them around the house, lol.

While we would honestly recommend any of these boxes, this PoochPerks box for October really won us over!
