May Bow Wow Box!

May already! I cannot believe that, and for us to be getting the Bow Wow Box it must be late May. For those of you who are new to our blog, Bow Wow Box is a New Zealand based monthly subscription service for dogs. Each month we get one toy, and then a range of treats to try. When purchasing the box you can chose the size of your dog, as well as how many dogs and some of their preferences. You can also add additional toys or treats if you would like for an extra fee. We have been getting the medium sized box since the company first began last year. To get your own box visit http://www.bowwowbox.co.nz/

We got the All for Paws Lamo toy as our toy for this month. This toy is a gorgeous soft toy in the shape of a lamb. We have had a toy from All for Paws before that Diego loved. This toy is made in China. We gave this toy to Diego the minute we got the box, and within ten minutes the plastic innards had been ripped out, alongside some stuffing. For a dog that isn't crazy at destroying toys this toy would be great! It has a squeaker inside, and the plastic shaping which gives it a bit of difference compared to other plush toys. I couldn't find this exact toy in any New Zealand pet stores, however other All for Paws toys range in price from $10-$20 NZD.


First treats we got are the ZiwiPeak 'Good-Dog' Treats. These are small sections of flat lamb jerky which has been air-dried and contains no artificial preservatives, colours, salt, sugar, grains or fillers. These would be perfect as a training treat, as they are soft and a small size. However, for even smaller dogs they would be so easy to rip up into even smaller slivers. ZiwiPeak is a New Zealand company that makes a bunch of different types of dog treats and chews. These treats sell for $8.74 at Animates.

Next are the Zeal Free Range Naturals Venison Livers. These are 100% venison liver, so there is nothing extra added into these which is great. We often get Zeal treats in our Bow Wow Boxes and the boys absolutely love any of their range. They are crunchy, thick pieces of liver, and are great as a treat. I would not recommend these as training treats as they are large, and are not easily broken down. Like ZiwiPeak, Zeal is a New Zealand company, and all their products are 100% New Zealand grown/made. I also love their cardboard packaging which is recyclable. These treats sell for $7.59 from Pet.co.nz.

Lastly we got some Alfa Pet Veal Ribs. These are just 100% veal ribs, and we have recently given the boys some ribs and they love them! We have had this brand previously as well, and it went down a treat. All their treats are 100% natural, using either New Zealand or Australian meat and dehydrated. These sell for $5.99 from Alfa Pets website.

This box was a good selection of types of treats, however it seemed a bit lacking compared to what we have been receiving from previous boxes. I am not 100% sure, but I feel like most times we get four treats, so three seemed a bit of a let down. I am happy that all the treats we got can be given to our dogs, and that I can use them for different purposes. The toy was a write off, however that is typical for Diego so I am not too worried about that. The total box cost was anywhere between $32.32 - $42.32 depending on the cost of the toy.
