Basic Training with Pet Gift Box | #PetGiftBox #Military

Khaleesi is always excited to see her new Pet Gift Box arrive! It might sound strange, but as soon as she sees me walking to her with a box, she starts going crazy! She just knows that it is filled with goodies for her. This month’s theme was Basic Training and all of the items inside were military themed. My husband is former US Navy, so we are a huge military family. We love Pet Gift Box because we get to try out new snacks and toys before we would go out and purchase them. The box this month included five great items.

Get Yourself a #Free PetGiftBox Subscrtiption Box | #PetGiftBox

Disclosure: Mama Smith’s Review Blog received this item in exchange for her honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% hers.

PetGiftBox

I love when our Pet Gift Box arrives at our door every month – and so does Khaleesi! She runs around like crazy and I can tell she knows that it is for her. It is so strange how she recognizes that box when it comes. She loves to stick her head in it and find everything that comes for her. The February box is all about Valentine’s Day and love. It was filled with lots of great items and of course, we love all of them.

PetGiftBox

There were two super cute toys for Khaleesi – a Love Buddy ($10 Value) and a Baby Love ($6 Value) – and she loves them both. As you can see in the unboxing video she started running around with them immediately. These came just in time as a few of her old toys needed to be thrown out as they were getting a bit worn out.

PetGiftBox

She also got some yummy treats – Bubba Rose Biscuit Heart ($4 Value) and Select Dogs Heart Shaped Treats ($8 Value). I was excited as soon as I saw the car magnet ($6 Value) for me too! I put it on my car right away. I love PetGiftBox because they include a card that tells you the value of every item you receive – so you know how much you saved by being a subscriber! It is also nice because Khaleesi gets to try out treats and things we would never have known about if it wasn’t for them. If you love your fur baby – then try out PetGift Box – you won’t be disappointed! And remember, they also have boxes for cats too, not just dogs!

December Pet Gift Box Review | #PetGiftBox

Disclosure: Mama Smith’s Review Blog received this item in exchange for her honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% hers.

Dec 2016 Pet Gift Box

Khaleesi loves getting to open her Pet Gift Box with me when it comes in the mail. She sees it and I swear, she immediately knows it is packed full of goodies for her! This month, we put hers under the tree when it arrived and let her open it up on Christmas Eve. My 4 year old (who has watched me do numerous unboxings), asked if she could do the video for this one. I let her take the reigns and helped out just a little bit. You have to check out the adorable video below – I think she did great (and I think Khaleesi agrees with me).

This month’s theme was, you guessed it, the holidays! I love this because it allows Khaleesi to really celebrate with us. I was really pleased with every item in our December Pet Gift Box, as was the rest of the family. My favorite item included was the Holidays Fur All Scented Candle ($3.50 Value). This comes from One Fur All Pet Candles which I have reviewed before (read that here) and I am a huge fan of them. This candle smelled amazing with a mix of fir needles, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. It really smells just like “the holidays”. Another great item is the ZippyPaws Holiday Scarf ($8 Value). Khaleesi looks adorable wearing hers – and she has even gotten compliments on it while strutting her stuff around the neighborhood.

Khaleesi’s favorite item is probably the Bundle Up Buddy Chew Toy ($10 Value). She has been carrying around with her everywhere since it arrived. She even sleeps with it! My girls enjoy playing with it with her as well. It is pretty well made and even squeaks! Khaleesi also has really enjoyed the Holiday Buddy Biscuits ($6 Value) that she received in her Pet Gift Box. These soft and chewy mini gingerbread med are the perfect holiday treat for your fur baby! They are wheat, corn, and soy free as well as made in the USA.

Last but not least, our December Pet Gift Box included a PetGiftBox Gourmet Holiday Blend ($10 Value). These 100% all natural pet treats with no additives or preservatives ensured that Khaleesi got to indulge along with us this holiday season! And trust me, she loved them! Pet Gift Box always includes a card with details (and cost) of the items in your box. This way you can find them easily if you want to repurchase them, and you also know how much you saved by subscribing to Pet Gift Box! This is hands down the best subscription box for your pet if you ask me – and remember, they are not just for dogs, Pet Gift Box also has a cat version!

You and Your Dog will LOVE the Ruffit Dog Carrier | #HGG #Ruffit #Pets

As you may or may not know, my family owns a pug that we have named Khaleesi (Game of Thrones). She truly is a part of our family, and we like to take her with us wherever we go. Because she is a pug, she can get overheated pretty easily while walking, and so we end up carrying her a lot. Sometimes, if we are out for a walk and pulling our daughters in a wagon, she ends up riding with them for the majority of it. My husband also enjoys going for bike rides, but has been bummed that he cannot take his little queen (you will get it if you watch Game of Thrones) with him. But now, thanks to the Ruffit Dog Carrier, he can!

November Pet Gift Box: Happy Thanksgiving | #PetGiftBox #GiftsForPets

Disclosure: Mama Smith’s Review Blog received this item in exchange for her honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% hers.

pet gift box

My little pug Khaleesi loves getting her Pet Gift Box every month. She runs to me as soon as she sees the that box – I still don’t know how she knows what is inside, but she does. I guess you could say she is used to it as we have been getting Pet Gift Box for a year now. They theme their boxes every month and so I was pretty sure I knew what type of items would be in the November box – and I was right!

pet gift box   pet gift box

The November Pet Gift Box was all about Thanksgiving! I love this because Khaleesi is a big part of our family so it is fun to celebrate along with her too. We received so many great items in this month’s box, I really was so excited about all of them (and I think Khaleesi was too!). For treats we received Sweet Tater Fries ($13 Value), Dog Days Treats Turkey Breast Jerky ($10 Value), and Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up ($4 Value). The Sweet Tater Fries are made in the USA and naturally nutritious. Khaleesi loves them and would have eaten the entire bag in one sitting if we let her. As for the turkey breast jerky I am so excited that she will ahve her own turkey to eat while the family is around the table sharing what we are thankful for this Thanksgiving. These are sourced and made in the USA. They pumpkin patch up is so healpful – we have had these type of products before and they are great. It helps settle your pet’s tummy after a big meal.

Khaleesi also got a Tom the Turkey Chew Toy ($15 Value) which she loves to play with. He is super cute and she just loves him. She also received a Holiday Bowtie ($11 Value) that looks super adorable on her. We just love it! She looks so fancy in it. Overall, it was another great Pet Gift Box – although, I have come to expect that from them. They always include a card with information on everything that was in the box and the values of them. This is great because you can see just how much you saved by subscribing!

October Pet Gift Box Unboxing + a #Giveaway | #PetGiftBox #ILovePGB

Disclosure: Mama Smith’s Review Blog received this item in exchange for her honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% hers.

Oct Pet Gift Box

Khaleesi loves getting to open her PetGiftBox every month! This month we were on vacation so it was a little late for her, but she was ready as soon as she saw it! This month’s box was all about Halloween – well, HOWLoween – so it was perfect! I loved that she could join right in the Halloween fun with my daughters. This box was filled with lots of cool holiday themed goodies for her – and she loves them all!

 

 

 

The toys that she received are a BOO-BAT (value $7.99), Candy Corn Plush Toy (value $4.99), and a skeleton castle toy (value $3.99). She immediately started playing with all of them (which you can see in the unboxing video below). She has been carrying the candy corn around since she got it and we think it is the cutest thing. My girls love playing tug-o-war with it with her.

Oct Pet Gift Box

As for the treats, we got some Pumpkin Smoocher Drops (value $10.99) and some Bark Bars Spooktacular Cookies (value $4.99). Khaleesi has been eating these up! She was so excited to get her very own treats on Halloween night! I love that they are all natural and wheat, corn, and soy free. Knowing they are safe for her makes a huge difference! Khaleesi also got a new boo-dana. She has been wearing the ones from her previous box but I am glad she has one for this special holiday now! She loves sporting bandanas and always gets compliments when she is out for a walk.

Oct Pet Gift Box

Pet Gift Box has boxes for cats as well as dogs, and many different subscription options. My favorite thing about this box is that they always include a card with the values of the items you receive and a little bit about them. This is great because you can easily find items if you wish to purchase them again. You will also know just how much you saved by being a Pet Gift Box subscriber! Go ahead and get your furry friend a subscription, they will love you even more for it!

September’s PetGiftBox + a #Contest | #ILovePGB

Disclosure: Mama Smith’s Review Blog received this item in exchange for her honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% hers.

Sept PetGiftBox

My dog loves getting her PetGiftBox every month! I swear, she recognizes that box when she sees it. I love when it arrives too – but for different reasons. It always features treats that are healthy for her, which can be hard to find! I love getting to try out new brands because a lot of the time, they are ones that I would never have known about if it was not for PetGiftBox. A new box showing up to our door also means new toys. Khaleesi may be a small pug puppy, but she can destroy a toy like you wouldn’t believe. They tend to last her about two months – and that is being generous – so it is always good to add more to her collection. I will say that the few toys that have made it through months and months – seem to be PetGiftBox toys! This is the best pet gift box that I have come across. And don’t worry if you have a cat – because they have cat boxes too! If you subscribe here you will receive your first box FREE!

Sept PetGiftBox    Sept PetGiftBox

One of the really fun things about PetGiftBox is that every month is themed! This month the theme is “Hawaiin Lu-arf” and I was really pleased with all of the goodies that arrived. As far as toys go, there was just one this month – a Hula Girl ($9.99 value)! She is surprisingly pretty durable and has already been through several rousing rounds of tug of war. There was also a Hawaiian Bandana ($5.99 value) which I love seeing Khaleesi wear. She has not tried to scratch it off once, so she must like it too. It gives us a little bit of Spring/Summer in Upstate New York where it is quickly becoming Fall.

Sept PetGiftBox    Sept PetGiftBox

This month, Khaleesi got three treats in her box! I know that makes her very happy! The Cocotherapy Five Star Gingered Pumpkin Dog Treats ($11.99 value) have been great for training! She has been going to obedience school to break her puppy habits and these are the perfect size to give her when she does something good – not to mention she loves the flavor! She scarfs these down really fast. We also received the perfect treat for a hot and humid day – Cool Treats Pina Colada Smoothie ($2.99 value). Just pop them in the freezer for a little bit and then serve. Khaleesi loved hers so much that we plan to purchase more for her. The last thing in our box was the Ultra Chewy Passion Fruit Tropical Mini Bones ($5.99 value). These are calming and sweet so your pet will enjoy them while they help clean up their teeth and control tarter. Khaleesi sure loves them!

I was very impressed with this month’s box, as always. I really love the fact that they include a postcard which talks about everything you received – plus lets you know the total value of your box so you can calculate how much you saved by subscribing! PetGiftBox is a great subscription box for any pet – dog or cat – and be sure to subscribe here you will receive your first box FREE!

If you would like to win yourself a PetGiftBox – and one for a friend – PetGiftBox has a great Instagram photo contest going on right now. Simply post a photo of your pet with a sign saying “I love PetGiftBox” and the hashtag #ILovePGB, tagging @PetGiftBox in your post (and be sure to follow them too!). Contest ends 10/1/15.
