Updated November 2022

Dog subscription boxes are stuffed with treats, toys, and training tools that can help you beat doggy boredom. They come straight to your door each month, and thanks to the ever-growing demand for dog subscription boxes, there is one that suits every special occasion and type of dog. Whether your pup wears his favorite plushie threadbare with marathon snuggle sessions or yanks out its stuffing and leaves a trail of fluff (like our adorable sausage dog Django), these 6 subscription dog boxes have you covered.

The Best Dog Box Subscriptions of 2022

1. BarkBox

The best and most popular subscription dog boxes for dogs include BarkBox

With more than 1 million subscribers, BarkBox is the most popular dog subscription box, and it is easily one of our (Mike and Steph) favorites. Plans start at a very reasonable price of $23 per month. Each BarkBox includes 2 plush dog toys, 2 full-sized bags of all-natural dog treats, and a meaty chew based on an adorable monthly theme. Think everything from wrestling to carnival rides to magic tricks. There are even themes related to pop culture and upcoming holidays.

Each BarkBox is curated for your dog based on his size, age, breed, and food allergies. Beef, chicken, and turkey allergies are built into BarkBox’s checkout. Its chews and treats are also manufactured in the U.S. and Canada from domestic and imported ingredients.

Good to know: BarkShop donates 5% of its profit to organizations nationwide that provide low or no-cost spay and neuter surgeries. The BarkGood program also donates $25 per box to 3,000 rescues and shelters across Canada and the United States when you sign up using their code.

2. Goody Box

Unlike some of the other options we have covered, Chewy’s Goody Box does not need a subscription. You can get as many as you like for your dog, or give one to a furry friend for an adoptaversary or special occasion. This one-time box is filled with 5 or more top-notch, hand-picked products. Each Goody Box contains 2-3 top-rated toys, 2 grain-free treat bags, a seasonal, machine-washable bandana, and a recipe card. Limited-edition themes keep each delivery fun and exciting for both dogs and their owners. While Goody Box is not recommended for heavy chewers, it has a “100% satisfaction guarantee” and can be replaced or returned within 365 days of purchase.

Price:

  • $24.99 per box

Shipping frequency: Goody Box is not a subscription box but rather a one-off dog box offering. You can buy as many boxes for your dogs as you like. Frequency of ordering is 100% up to you, and Chewy.com ships out each box within 1-3 business days once an order is placed.

Good to know: In the last ten years, Chewy has donated more than $76 million in pet products to U.S. shelters and rescues.

3. KONG Club

KONG Club is a monthly subscription pet service that combines KONG's best-selling pet toys with AskVet’s mobile pet health management platform. Available for both dogs and cats, each month KONG Club members receive a box stocked with a fun assortment of KONG toys, treats, tips, and seasonal recipes based on their pet’s size and age. Members also receive 24/7 live access to licensed veterinarians via a mobile app and access to a Rainy Day Fund which will pay up to $1,000 to help cover emergency vet visits (more on this below).

4. Bullymake Box

The best dog box subscription you can buy

Whether your pup shreds plushies and pulls out their squeakers, or chews chunks from his rubber toys, the Bullymake Box is filled with impossible-to-destroy toys made out of nylon, rubber, and bulletproof materials. Each Bullymake Box contains 2-3 durable toys (you can select the materials) and 3 full-sized treat bags.

The company designs and manufactures its own exclusive toys and treats in the U.S. Bullymake also caters to dogs with beef, chicken, and wheat allergies. It offers a “Toy Only” Box that has 4-5 nearly indestructible dog toys. Each Bullymake Box has seasonal theme, such as Deep Sea Chewer, and is tailored to your pooch’s play preference (i.e., chewer, fetcher, and tugger.) If your dog turns his chew toys into confetti, Bullymake will send you a free replacement as long as you take a picture of the sacrificed toy.

  • Month-to-month subscription: $39 per box 
  • 3-month subscription: $36 per box (8% discount)

5. Bark Super Chewer

The best dog box subscription you can buy

If your pup loves to rip open plush dog toys and make fluff fly, the Super Chewer Box will make his playtime last longer. Every Super Chewer Box has 2 super tough rubber toys, 2 all-natural meaty chews, and 2 full-sized treat bags. Super Chewer’s toys are always stuffing-free and are made with rubber foam, natural rubber, and woven nylon fabric. Made in Canada and the U.S., its chews and treats are corn, soy, and wheat-free. They can be tailored to your pooch’s dietary needs (e.g., low-fat or vegetarian) and/or food allergies (i.e., beef, chicken, and turkey).

Each Super Chewer Box has a fun seasonal theme, which is a major draw for dog owners. Last month’s Doggone Fishing Box featured a monster-sized bass kicker and a vanilla-scented fishing bobber. But you will also get boxes themed around popular movies, famous cartoon characters, and much more.

The Super Chewer Box has a “100% happiness guarantee”. If your four-legged friend hates a toy or turns his nose up at a treat, customer service will replace the item free of charge.

DOG SUBSCRIPTION BOX PRICE COMPARISON CHART (SEPTEMBER 2021)

The price of each dog subscription box is based on the length of your subscription. As of September 2021, here are the prices for BarkBox, Bark Super Chewer Box, KONG Box, Chewy’s Goody Box, Bullymake Box, and The Dapper Dog Box.

Django Dog Blog Subscription Dog Box Price Chart - djangobrand.com

As you can see from the table above, subscription dog boxes are cheaper when you choose a 6-month or 12-month plan. KONG Box is the most expensive option on our list while BarkBox has the lowest annual subscription plan. Though The Dapper Dog Box’s and BarkBox’s 6-month plans are similar in price.  Bullymake Box and The Dapper Dog Box are the only companies that have 3-month subscription plans. But Goody Box and BarkBox have the cheapest monthly subscription fees.

While you may want to pick a dog subscription box based on price, we recommend choosing one based on your dog’s food allergies and play preferences. For example, it might make sense to pay more for a KONG Box or Bullymake Box if your pup destroys his dog toys within seconds. Want limited-edition dog apparel and accessories? Consider opting for Goody Box or The Dapper Dog Box.

How to Choose the Best Dog Harness for Your Dachshund

January 18, 2023

Dachshunds are a small, stubborn, loyal, and adventurous dog breed. Mike and I (Steph) know from experience. We're the proud dog parents of Django, our 7-year old long-haired dachshund and adventure pup. Django has been all over the United States and Europe with us, and we even named our dog accessories and dog apparel business, DJANGO, after him!

Despite being one of the most popular small dog breeds, dachshunds are often difficult to outfit. It can be challenging to find a dog harness that comfortably and securely fits your wiener dog's broad chest, muscular build, and long frame.

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we discuss what to look for when choosing a walking harness for your sausage dog. We also examine how often you should exercise your dachshund.

Tumble Rugs Review #2 - Washable Rug Review - Read Before Buying

January 11, 2023

Tumble washable rugs review #2!

It's been over six months since we wrote our first review of Tumble rugs. Since then, our Tumble rugs have been through a lot. We have a rambunctious toddler who is almost 4 years old, a 10 month old baby who is learning he can throw spaghetti, and a low-riding long-haired dachshund who tracks in dirt, mud, and debris after every walk. Our Tumble rugs have seen milk and OJ spills, marker and crayon stains, dirt streaks, marinara splotches, endless dog hair...you name it.

We have 7 Tumble area rugs and runners throughout our home. Based on the location, each of our Tumble rug sees different levels of foot traffic, spills, dirt marks, and dog hair.

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide an updated overview and review of Tumble rugs based on our family's personal and extensive experience with the machine washable rugs.
