Happy Dog Box Review & Giveaway

Have you guys heard of Happy Dog Box? It's one of those services that provides you with a box full of awesome surprises every month, for one base price. 

I'm a big fan of these kinds of things, because I love the idea of sampling new products for my crazy but lovable dog. We tried the Bark Box for a while, actually, and it was pretty cool. But at the end of my 3-month subscription, I didn't bother renewing. In the end, we decided it was good but not the greatest thing ever. 

Then Happy Dog Box came along with this opportunity, and Desmond explained to me that it would be a matter of life and death if I didn't get a box in here right away. And boy am I glad I did.

That's a lot of good-lookin' goodies
By far, Desmond's favorite thing in the box. Kangaroo jerky. Who knew? 

I thought the products in this box were really good quality, and I love that it comes with a card telling you a little bit about each item. Getting some info on the products is great, but it also makes me feel confident that my box is the same as everyone else's, and we're not missing out on some hot treats or anything.

Other favorites from the box were--of course--the bully stick (Desmond seems to especially like these spiral types), the Dynamo Dog hip & joint treats (we're giving them to him every day, in place of his regular glucosamine supplement), and the treats dispensing toy. I put some stuff in there, and Desmond actually played with it. I mostly used treats small enough to just fall out as he batted it around. I'm not sure how this would fare with something larger that he has to work for. He's not the best employee at the company, if you know what I mean. He'll do the minimum required to avoid getting fired

I found it amusing that the poop bags & holder that were included in the box are the exact ones we already have. So I added it to a pile of donations for hurricane victims. People still need all kinds of things; I'm sure someone will appreciate it. 

Like other similar companies, Happy Dog Box is customized to the size of your dog. Desmond falls into the large category (the rep and I had a good laugh over Desmond's misleading skinny-butt looks). Here's a little description of the service their own words:
What’s in the box?
Every month you will receive a box of five or more premium products carefully selected from leading manufacturers and up-and-coming boutique brands around the country – anything from healthy treats, bones, and tough toys to hygiene products and new innovative gadgets! 
Worried about getting treats from China? I don't think that's gonna happen. Happy Dog Box says...
We source our treats from high-quality, independent treat manufacturers that are vetted for safety and quality. The treats we send are safe, healthy and delicious, GUARANTEED.
And nothing in our box caused my hesitation. In fact, some of the items in the box are featured on the site right now, so take a look here to read more about them (click on the top menu to find out what's in the box). 

Even better? Happy Dog Box is giving back to the community of dogs who aren't so lucky to have homes with families willing to supply them with never-ending awesome boxes of awesome treats and toys. 
It’s more than just a box of treats and toys. is committed to the happiness of dogs everywhere. That’s why we donate a portion of our profits to shelters in partnership with the San Francisco SPCA. It can be a hard life for these pups, so we do our best to provide healthy treats and fun toys to brighten their days. We might not be able to save every dog out there, but we want to do our part - four paws at a time.
