I'm sure you've seen the ads for doggy-centered subscription boxes by now. There are dozens of options available, so how do you know which one will be best for your pup? You need a box that will offer products suitable for your dog and a choice that provides a good value for the money. The BoxDog Subscription Box is a great value, and it can be customized to meet the needs of almost any dog.
Subscription boxes offer some advantages when compared to shopping online or at a brick-and-mortar store. The products are automatically delivered to your doorstep each month – no shopping required. The value of the products is always more than the price you pay, and you usually get the option to customize the products to your dog's specific needs.
I wrote this review to give pet parents an idea of what they can expect to find in the BoxDog subscription box. I'll let you know what customization options are available and help you decide if it's a good value for the money you'll have to spend on the subscription.
You can also look at some of the other dog subscription boxes that I’ve reviewed to see for yourself just how the BoxDog box compares to similar products:

BoxDog Subscription Box Review
As I explain in my video review above, this is hands down the most customizable dog subscription box that I have ever seen! Most boxes allow you to choose your dog's preferences, but they select the items included the box. For example, you can tell them what type of toys your pet likes, any allergies he may have, etc…
BoxDog takes it one step further. They actually allow you to hand pick the items that will be in your box. They offer more than a dozen options, and you can select the products that will work best for your pup.
There are 2 options – the Giant Box and the regular monthly box. The Giant Box includes 4 types of handmade dog treats, 1 vegan skincare item and you get to select the other products in the box. You can choose from dog toys, clothes, gear and gadgets. There is at least $125 worth of products in each Giant Box.
The monthly box allows you to choose 4 items from the list of available options. The options change monthly, so you don't have to worry about getting the same thing over and over again each month. The value of the monthly box is up to $89.
The monthly boxes start at $34.99 per month. The Giant Box starts at $39.99 per box and includes 2 items of your choosing. You can choose more items, but the price increases depending on the number of items that you add to the box. I should also mention that the Giant Box is only delivered 4 times per year (seasonally/quarterly).
I was happy to find that BoxDog does not require subscribers to enter into a contract. Some subscription box companies make you sign up for a certain number of months, and you'll have to pay a fee to cancel you subscription early. That's not the case with BoxDog. You can skip a box or cancel your order at any time with no penalties.
I also like the fact that BoxDog members get discounted rates on select toys and treats in their stock. You can add any of these items to your regular shipment with no additional shipping costs.
So, let's say you get a quarterly box. You can scroll through the discounted products before your box ships and add 1 item or 10 items to your shipment with no additional shipping costs. You save money on the pet products, and you get free shipping – it's a win-win!
I've reviewed more than a dozen dog subscription boxes, and I have never seen a box that is so customizable. I have 3 dogs, so usually at least one of them will like any product that I receive. But, if you have one picky dog, it can be a challenge to find a box that offers a good value for the money.
If you've been waiting to find a subscription box that would be ideal for your pet, check out the BoxDog website. You'll be able to see the current options available to help you decide if this box would be a good choice for your pet. One thing is for sure, if the products are well suited for your dog, this box will definitely offer a great value for the price.
