Subscription Boxes for Pets
I can’t recommend BarkBox more if you’re looking for a monthly subscription box for your dog. I’ve been a BarkBox subscriber for many years now and my dogs love the toys and treats inside their BarkBox. I especially like that BarkBox has options based on your particular dog. Their original box includes a themed collection of two toys, two bags of treats and one chew but also a Super Chewer box that comes with two fluff-free tough toys, two bags of treats and two meaty chews.
Barkbox starts at $39/month.
Is there a subscription box for cats? You bet! Meowbox is a top-rated monthly subscription for your cat. Boxes include 5-6 carefully curated, high-quality, and unique toys for your kitty cats. Best of all, for every box sold, a portion supports cat shelters and rescues!
Meowbox is $22.95/month.
Chewy also sells a one-time, no subscription necessary box for both dogs and cats called the Goody Box. These boxes are also hand-curated for your specific pet needs including Christmas and birthday boxes, small and large dogs, and cats. Including in each box are toys and treats.
Goody Box from Chewy starts at $24.99.
Dog Chews for Any Dog
Since one of my dogs is a super chewer, I like to give her dog chews that aren’t toys. Our favorite ones to give her bully sticks and elk antlers because they come in a variety of sizes. I like to buy these on subscription so we’re never out of them!
What to Get a Dog that Has Everything?
The truth is, dogs don’t know the difference between a luxury gift or a new box of Milk Bones. But, every dog has needs.
I usually replace all the dog beds at Christmastime and I put them out under the tree with a special treat. My family’s newest puppy has destroyed most of the beds and blankets so they are in desperate need of new dog beds this Christmas.

There are some amazing and unique toys for both cats and dogs. Anything that doesn’t fall apart at first play is a winner in my book. Plus, interactive toys that keep animals entertained tops our list.
