My Puppy Is PAWSOME!

We give our kids toys and tasty treats when they are good. But we also treated our puppy Scrapper to new treats too. He has been such a good boy after all, learning commands, and getting used to us as his new family.

pawsome box review

Pawsomebox is a super easy way to treat your dog each month with nibbles, toys, accessories and hygiene products to keep you and your best friend happy. The box contents are a total surprise (for you and your dog) as each month’s box contains a different range of gifts and each box is tailored to your dog, when you create their profile on the website. The boxes are sent to you via a subscription, and you can choose from a monthly plan, a three month plan, a six month plan and a yearly plan and special discounts are available for those who wish to pay this way.

Dogs seem to love (like, really love) the postman, and even more so when he delivers a parcel just for them. Lets start with the box itself. Its big and blue and chewable. Scrapper loves cardboard and the thought of a box to play with made his day. But he was no way prepared for the delights inside of the box! Each box has a theme and this month’s was quite obviously Summer fun! The box contained 2 toys (a cute summery flip flop and a soft plush squeaky toy), 2 bags of edible treats, a towel just for him for when he’s all wet from playing with the garden hose or having a dip in the sea and a really useful lead catch to safely secure your dog when popping out and about.

Toys.

The first toy we found in our Pawsome box was a really cute flip flop (beats him chewing mine). Its bright and colourful so is great for him to spot as it flies across our garden, and it has a great rope attached to it for him to gnaw on, superb for him during his chewing stage, soothing his gums as his teeth come through at the same time. He is only small and the flip flop toy is small too, great for puppies as it isn’t too heavy or too big for him to carry into his bed.

The second toy was a beautiful doggy credit card! Well, kind of. The soft plush toy is very cuddly and the squeak grabs his attention and gets him to a frenzy right away! The ‘card’ belongs to the Royal Bone Bank and the card holder is ‘Doggy Prince’, respectively.

Both toys feel well made, durable and great fun. Scrapper cuddles the plush toy when he’s sleeping in his bed, and can be found dragging the flip flop with him around at all times when he’s playing. I’m just not sure if he knows whether to hit the beach first or the shopping centre.

Tasty Treats.

pawsome box treats

There were 2 packs of yummy treats for Scrapper in the Pawsome box for him to try. The first pack is from the dog treat experts 8 in 1. These healthy mini bite-sized treats are chicken and carrot flavour (sounds tasty enough for me) and has Scrapper smacking his lips for more. They are low fat, gluten free and have no added sugar. As Scrapper is only little, I broke one treat into 4 or 5 little lumps and used them as training treats. They broke up easily and didn’t crumble into a fine mess all over the floor, unlike some other treats. He found the treats very yummy and was keeping his eye on the pack at all times!

The second bag of treats are very posh. Woof & Brew have brought us a new super tea-infused biscuit just for your pooch. So pop the kettle on!  The biscuits are meaty, natural and gluten free, that are oven-baked. They boast a high meat content (and that’s post-bake not pre-bake), raw herbs and are infused with Woof & Brew’s signature health boosting herbal tea. These biscuits were also quite large but easy to break up into smaller pieces for smaller jaws to manage.

Easy-Tie.

This fantastic little functional accessory is a must for any dog owner. The Easy-Tie from Happy Paws allows you to safely, quickly and easily secure your dog to pretty much anywhere. Café tables, railings and posts become a convenient place to leave you pooch while you enjoy a cuppa or quickly pick up a loaf for bread (or dog food) from the shops. It is suitable for all dog types and all types of leads, keeping all dogs safe at all times. You simply thread it through the handle of you lead and click the belt around any narrow width bar, or post and click it shut. If the railing is too big for the Easy-Tie you can alternatively wrap the lead around the object and secure 2 parts of you lead together with the catch, making nearly anywhere safe suitable to use the Easy-Tie. We liked using the Easy-Tie in the car to clip around the head rest meaning that Scrapper wouldn’t jump out when I opened the door and into danger. And when it’s not in use, you can simply fold it into itself and sits compact on the lead so it is always to hand at all times. A great design!

Dog Towel.

Scrapper had his first bath this week. And while he is very small, it is still amazing how much water such a small dog’s coat holds. The super towel from Camon is made of super-absorbent, soft microfiber which reduces drying time and keeping your dog warm when they first get out of the water. We are yet to take a trip to the beach together, but when we are ready to pop to the sea-front this towel will definitely be coming with us!

The Pawsome box also had a great mini-mag called Paw Notes explaining all of the products in detail, a great tutorial of how to make your own tug toy and some fun doggy news. A nice little read to sit and enjoy while sipping a cuppa and your best friend digs into the box!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Pawsome box and all of its contents. The box seemed well planned and suitable for Scrappers breed and age, and was an absolute pleasure to receive quick and easily through the post. The contents of the box was definitely greater than the cost and it meant I was introduced to brands and products that I may never have heard of or thought about trying before. I definitely got just as much joy from the box as Scrapper did!

Pawsome are offering a free trial of their boxes to those who wish to give it a go and see if it is right for them (trust me, it will be!) and you just have to pay for postage. The boxes are £19.90 per month (if you choose a yearly plan, a discount will mean you only pay £15.90 per month) and you can cancel at any time. There is also a Purrfect box for cats too. I know my cats would really enjoy that… especially the cardboard box!

Meet Scrapper

Yesterday we welcomed another member into the family. A little boy (in a house full of girls) called Scrapper. He is a terrier and only 9 weeks old. He has a lovely temperament and has been great with the kids, he is a quick learner and just wonderful!

The cats Boo and Poppy are still a little unsure of him, but I am sure they will soon all be best of friends.

Let the training begin….

… maybe I could win Britain’s Got Talent next year.
