Dog Boxes and why I stopped

I have stopped buying the Dog Boxes from and all other sites because of cost. Yes, I still check my showroom every month but I put the account on hold and haven’t bought a box in months. Why? I haven’t bought one in months because of cost and need.

Yes, the retail cost of all the products is more than the cost of the box. My cost problem is with two dogs and two very different personalities in them a single box (unless it’s all treats) doesn’t do much good for them. Geordi LOVES squeak toys. He doesn’t rip them apart but just squeaks them as fast and as hard as he can. He’s even figured out how to squeak them and run with them at the same time. Shadow LOVES balls and laser pointers. We can’t even click a pen near her because it sounds like the laser pointer being turned on. See, very different puppy personalities. As for the treats, I can’t go through 2-3 bags of them a month. Don’t get me wrong I love to spoil the pups but typically they don’t get spoiled with treats every day.

So why don’t I spoil them everyday with treats? I don’t spoil them everyday because if I did they would expect it and it wouldn’t be a special thing anymore. Also, they still have to earn their treats. It’s typically something easy peasy as sitting pretty, up and downs on command, shaking, or even happy ears (aka they perk their ears up). The only time they expect and demand treats is after bath time and nail cutting. See how 2+ bags of treats last me a long time?

So given all this I’ve stopped buying them. We just don’t burn through the toys or treats fast enough to make it cost effective for me; a single box alone is almost $20.
