So you want to get yourself a Dog Subscription Box. But you don’t know which one to get. We take a look at the best dog subscription boxes around. And how to get a free trial (or in some cases, for a discounted price).
Dog Subscription Box UK
Dog food subscription boxes have become really popular in the UK over the last few years. They’re easy to set up and super convenient, and mean you never run out of dog food and end up at the convenience shop paying double the price!
There’s a growing number of these monthly boxes subscription companies now, so depending on what sort of food your dog eats there’s likely to be a subscription box that suits your dog and you.
However….while I love my Tails.com monthly subscription box we’re all about saving money here or getting the most out of the money we do have and so as always it’s really important to make sure you’re not spending more than you need to.
There’s a range of issues to take into account when you’re buying dog food apart from the cost of it (quality of the food etc..) and so you need to weight these up against the cost of any woof-box you’re thinking about getting. If that makes sense!
And of course when your foods delivered it usually comes in an eco-friendly box, or as we call it a puppy box, and if the dogs not in it he likes to chew it. Think of this as an added bonus!
Dog Food Subscription Trial Boxes
One way to make sure the subscription box you go with is the right one for you is to try it out first. And if you can do that for free then all the better!
There are some companies that offer a totally free trial and others that give you a discounted price so you can try their food.
