Bugsy's Box Review

Time to review another monthly subscription box!  They seem to be all the rage these days- and personally I love them- so  when I was contacted by the people at Bugsy's Box to do a review I was happy to say yes!

What is Bugsy's Box?  Here is what the company has to say about it-
"Each Bugsy's Box includes 5 to 7 items which are a variety of high quality, hand picked, well reviewed dog treats, toys, care items, healthy supplements, accessories and more surprises such as coupons which are often included as a bonus.

The idea is to let dog owners spoil their best friend with more exclusive and higher quality items which are usually harder to find in a local pet store. Not only do we save you the cost and time of actually going to the pet store but we also provide you with better items, a more exclusive selection and of course, much better prices."

The other great thing about Busy's Box is that all the treats and edibles in the box are made in the USA or Canada.  As you all know this is a must for us.

Copley Immideately sniffed out a carob treat sample that was in there.  You can see him enjoying it above.
Overall I give Bugsy's Box a thumbs up.  Judging by this box it is at least equal to, and perhaps a little higher quality than other subscription boxes I have tried. What was in the box you ask?  Let me tell you-

Incredibubbles-  I wish these would photograph well but they do not.  They are however the coolest thing!  They are very strong bubbles that the dogs love to chase then pounce on the ground to pop them once they are landed.  Nova LOVES them, and as you all know if Nova loves it they are here to stay.  My one criticism is that they are made in Taiwan- and are semi-edible so they seem to break Bugsy's Box's rule about USA treats a little bit.  From our perspective they are worth it though- if only because Nova loves them so much.
Eco Planet Doggie Bags-  I have been wanting to try out there for a while.  They are made out of plant material and eco-friendly.  They are the biggest, thickest, sturdiest dog bags I have seen ever!  I looked on their website and they are very reasonably priced.  They are going to be my go-to poop bags from now on.  If you have a bigger dog you should really try them.  I bet these are big and sturdy enough even for mastiff or great dane poop.
Animal Safari Toy-  I am loving this toy.  The dogs have been trying to destroy it for days and it is still completely intact.  That is saying a lot around here.
Fetch & Glow Ball-  These are pretty cool, glow in the dark balls.
YumZies Treats-  These are decent training treats and the dogs have enjoyed them in the past.  
The Barking Box- An animal cookie-like box of dog treats.
Loofa Light- The loofa toy we have all seen around but without stuffing! 

In conclusion I just have two criticisms for Bugsy's Box.  First I would prefer all USA toys as well as treats.  Second it would be nice if they provided websites for all the products in the box so it is easier for me to find them if I want to buy more.  That would not stop me from subscribing though, and I think they are worth checking out.

Thanks everyone!
