Our Verdict



What's in a Dog Subscription Box ?


Most dog subscription boxes consist of a selection of toys and treats delivered to your door in a monthly dog box - What's not to love?

Best dog subscription boxes

Research shows that dogs will overwhelmingly choose to play with a new toy over more familiar objects.


A subscription box is a simple and great value way of adding a new toy to your collection and will help keep your pooch engaged and interested.


I know what you're thinking, but it doesn’t need to be like that dreaded gym membership. Most subscriptions have no commitments and it’s easy to 'paws', change or cancel your subscription at any point.

Our Picks of the Best Dog Subscription Boxes


1. Ultimutt Dog Box

Best Dog Subscription Box Contents


Heading up our review is Ultimutt Dog Box. This subscription service for dogs, delivers a quality box of treats, toys and adorable accessories straight to your door every month.


They also offer a one-off gift box which would make a fabulous idea as a surprise gift for a friend with a new puppy or a one-off amazing treat (without subscription) for your pup - simply because you love them.

Ultimate dog subscription box including treats

We put an Ultimutt Dog Box through its paces and discovered that the team put considerable thought into carefully curating an assortment of dog treats and toys.


We were genuinely impressed by the variety and the quality of the brands included. From an Edgard Cooper treat bar, Lily's Kitchen treats to Petface and Kong Toys, the whole box oozed quality.


Some boxes contain Adios Plastic compostable poo bags. These super eco-friendly poo bags feature highly in our Best Dog Poo Bag Review

Ultimutt Monthly Dog Subscription Box

Ultimutt Dog Box also include some unique and quirky items that you won’t find in your high-street pet stores and in doing so support small businesses which is always a big plus.


The boxes cost £232.99 a month or £27.99 or a box every other month, and you can cancel or change at any time.


But it doesn't stop there ! Ultimutt have extended their range to include a box for every occasion-


🎁 Birthday Box 7 treats and toys - £32.99

🎁 Puppy Box for excited puppy parents - £21.99

🎁 Surprise Doggie Gift Box - £29.99

🎁 Tough Chewy Gift Box for that power chewer in your life - £32.99


So lots of different options depending on whether you're buying for your dog, a puppy, a chewer or as a gift for a friend and their four-legged friend.


Overall, we felt the Monthly Box was amazingly good value, outstanding quality and full of fun and excitement - just the tonic to brighten each month.

2. Fetch Club

Best Natural Treat Box


There's also a new type of subscription boxes for dogs which is proving to be extremely popular with dog lovers everywhere - Dog Treat Subscriptions. A range of natural, healthy dog treats delivered regularly.


Not only are natural treats healthier for your dog, but they taste better too. Let's face it, we don't always know what ingredients are hiding in some of the treats on our local supermarket shelves.


The first thing to say is that although they are super healthy, natural dog treats don't always look the most appetising to us humans - rabbit's ear anyone ?

Fetch Club natural dog treats for dogs

If you fancy dipping your toe in the water with natural dog treats but are unsure what to choose, a perfect place to start is a mixed box from UK company -Fetch Club.


Their range of Treat Boxes for dogs are handpicked packed full of natural, quality treats and definitely no nasties.


Ultimately, you have the benefit of trying lots of different types of treats and better still, they work out great value when compared to buying the individual products (30% saving on single packs when bought as a mixed box).


Their cheapest box, the Mini (featured above) at just under £10 includes :-


Pure pate, a yak stick, rabbit ear, venison meat strips, pig's ear, fish fingers and

duck sausages.


We recommend Fetch Club treat boxes because they also offer the option to buy one box without a subscription if you prefer. This is an ideal option if you want your four-legged friend to try the treats (trust us - they're pawsome)


Fetch Club also offer Letterbox Treat Boxes. Hassle-free treats which land on your doormat! Your trusty Royal Mail postie will drop a letterbox size package of all-natural treats through your door.

3. Postman Pooch

Best Subscription Box for Celebrations


Postman Pooch offer a wide range of dog subscription boxes for you to choose. There are a total of 6 different boxes based on your dog's size and the number of items you want to include.

Postman Pooch dog gift box

Their most popular monthly dog box is excellent value at only £24.95 and contains 5 items including natural treats, toys and an accessory.


They also offer a puppy subscription box from £24.95 and even one for heavy chewers from £29.99 so there's a monthly dog box to suit every dog.


Regardless of which you choose, your first monthly dog box comes with a free dog bow tie and there are more freebies with boxes 3, 6 and 12, so the longer you subscribe the more rewards your dog receives.

4. Woof-box

Best Customisation Options


Woof-box offer a selection of monthly dog boxes for subscription or if you prefer, a one-off purchase (which is a great way to try a box before committing to a subscription).


Each dog subscription box from Woof-box contains 5-7 items. In addition to dog treats, tasty chews and biscuits, each box includes a dog toy as well as either a hygiene, grooming or innovative dog product.

Woof-Box dog subscription box filled with treats and dog toys

You can select a monthly, 4 monthly or 12 monthly plan clearly signing up for a year is best value. In testing we found the Woof-Box sign up a little frustrating and there seemed to be a lot more information about costs than the products in the box.


Even more customisation is available, as Woof-box gives you the option to choose more or less chews, biscuits and treats in your box.


You are also able to choose either a soft, plush toy or opt for a tough toy which will last longer if your dog is a destructive chewer. You can also choose between larger or smaller toys depending on breed.


The standard subscription box starts at £24.99 a month but to take advantage of this price you do need to sign up for a year. If you want a contract which you can cancel at any time, this will cost £29.99


Reasons to Buy

+ Lots of customisation options

+ Varying subscription lengths


Reasons to Avoid

- Not the cheapest

- Confusing ordering system

5. WufWuf

Best Themed Boxes


The first thing to say is that we adore WufWuf's cute themed boxes.

Contents of the latest WufWuf dog subscription box

The team at WufWuf create a series of adorable unique themes throughout the year such as W..UFO space theme, Jurassic, Rockstar and Petflix & Chill.

+ Themed boxes

+ Customisation options

+ Box for chewers


Reasons to Avoid
