Have We Got Some Pawsome News For You…
Pawpost, the monthly pet box for dogs and cats has teamed up with London Dog Charity All Dogs Matter to help dogs searching for their forever home. All Dogs Matter is a small organisation but thanks to their dedicated team, have already rehomed 95 dogs this year. Yet their work doesn’t stop as there are currently another 47 dogs still waiting to find their forever home. The Pawpost partnership will provide much-needed support to All Dogs Matter – for every box sold through the Pawpost website, Pawpost will donate £1 to All Dogs Matter, wooftastic news!
It was also a lovely surprise to hear that Pawpost chose a photo I had taken of gorgeous All Dogs Matter dog Babs to be on the compliments slip (above) which goes out with every Pawpost box! Who could resist a face like that? If you can’t, then good news as the star of the photo, beautiful Babs is still looking for her forever home! Check out Babs’s profile over on the All Dogs Matter website.
Pawpost kindly popped us a box in the post to see for ourselves. This was very exciting as this was the first time Belinha and Moleque had received their very own parcel from the postman. Who knows, perhaps it will endear them to him a bit more! So this post is not only about the brilliant partnership between Pawpost and All Dogs Matter but also for us to do a review on the Pawpost monthly pet box.
Pawpost Monthly Pet Box Review
For those of you who don’t know, Pawpost is a monthly pet box subscription service for your dog or cat. Each month you receive a box of goodies chosen by the Pawpost team which includes their four-legged product testing team. There’s a total of 5-7 products in the box with a mix of organic & holistic treats, toys, health & hygiene products and accessories. Each month is different and you can choose a small, medium or large pet box depending on the size of your pet.
What was in our box?
We had the April box for medium dogs and it was exciting to open it up and see what was inside. A bit like having a birthday every month!
Belinha and Moleque were definitely intrigued , especially when I told them it was all for them. Probably makes a nice change to them being told to leave things alone!
Here’s what we got:
Beautiful Joe’s Ethical Dog Treats which are lovely little pieces of air-dried, free range ox liver that the dogs went mad for. The company also has a great ethos (more on that in a moment).
Health Mutt’s Paw Amour which helps moisturize and prevent split paws. Made from Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Olive Butter and Beeswax – clearly quite tasty as Belinha tried to eat it.
Nose2Tail Hypo-allergenic Salmon Dog Food made from 66% British human grade salmon (Freedom Food labelled) as well as herbs, fruit, vegetables, vitamins and minerals.
Scruffy Chops Muddy Marvellous Natural Mineral Conditioner, a deep-sea mud mineral conditioner which is great for dogs with dry skin. According to the Muddy Marvellous website, “this is to dogs what spinach is to Popeye!”
Lily’s Kitchen Cheese and Apple Training Treats. Low-fat, organic training treats made from fresh russet apples and mature Farmhouse Cheddar.
The Cyber Rubber Tough Tyre Toy that also acts as a dental aid cleaning teeth and gums. We’ll see how tough it is when Moleque gets his paws on it!
So, what did we think?
Before we tell you what we thought, I want to mention a couple of things about The Dogvine Crew…
- Belinha: Will eat anything edible and quite a few things that aren’t! However, Belinha has suffered from pancreatitis in the past so I have to make sure all treats are low-fat and natural if possible.
- Moleque: Loves toys but seems to have the single-minded purpose to see if he can destroy any new toy I give him in less than 15 minutes. This makes buying toys a tricky (and expensive) process.
- Me: Quite fussy about products I buy and always try to buy grooming products that are cruelty free / not tested on animals wherever possible.
With all that in mind, I had always had my doubts if a monthly pet box subscription would be a good idea as I thought I wouldn’t use most of the items due to the reasons mentioned above.
Well I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised, the Pawpost box ticked all the boxes! The Beautiful Joes and Lily’s Kitchen treats were ethical, natural and organic, the Nose2Tail food was full of healthy ingredients, the Tough Tyre toy seems durable (and is still going strong) and the Muddy Marvellous Conditioner and Paw Amour were cruelty free…brilliant!
I love the fact that Pawpost also has a partnership with Beautiful Joe’s who donate a pack of their treats to a rescue for every pack bought. In this case, that means All Dogs Matter get a pack of yummy Beautiful Joe’s treats for one of their well deserving dogs every time a Pawpost box is bought as well!
Is it value for money?
I believe so yes. Not only is it a great way to discover new brands and quality products but it works out cheaper. I compared what it would have cost me to buy the items that came in my box individually, which would have been just over £31 plus delivery charges which can mount up if buying from multiple sites. Whereas the Pawpost monthly pet box costs £17.95 – £22.95/month depending the length of your plan (one, three, six or twelve months). Plus I will definitely use all these products so it is paws down good value.
What did Belinha and Moleque think?
Belinha and Moleque would like to say a big thank you to Pawpost for their box, I think it’s fair to say they loved it….
Where to Buy?
If you think your pooch would their very own Pawpost pet box, pop over to the Pawpost website to find out more / order. Pawpost ship worldwide and don’t forget, purchases made on the Pawpost website means more donations (and treats) for the lovely dogs at All Dogs Matter!
