April 2014 HeroDogBox Review


Daisy’s HeroDogBox arrived in the mail yesterday!!  This review is for the “small” dog box (0-20 lbs).  Even though our dog is ~28 lbs, we decided to go with the small version due to toy size (the next step up was medium 20-50 lbs).

THE BOX:

Each box “sponsors” a dog  or organization that helps dogs in need – this month’s featured organization is Canine Angels!

THE COST:

HeroDogBox costs:

1 Month – $29/month with free shipping
3 Months – $24/month with free shipping (17% discount)
6 Months – $19/month with free shipping (34% discount)

THE GOODS:

 HeroDogBoxApr14 007

The Honest Kitchen Dehydrated Whole Foods in Keen and Force – 1 oz each – Free on their website

These samples are actually available for free on the Honest Kitchen’s website – so not assigning a value to them.  Will likely use these as a treat on the weekend.

Pet Silk Groomers Shampoo in Hawaiian Plumeria – 2.2 oz – $1.25

This shampoo smells quite good!  Can’t wait to give Daisy a bath with this (she smelled it and ran away – haha!)

 West Paw Zogoflex Hurley – mini size – $8

I do wish they will send  a soft toy one of these months – Daisy just doesn’t get into rubber toys…

 HeroDogBoxApr14 009

Wagatha’s Organic Dog Biscuits in Cranberry – 8 oz (Full Size!) – $6.99

Lil’ Lovee Apple Delight Treats – 4 oz. Sample Bag – $3.75

As normal – Daisy gives all these treats two paws up!  She REALLY loves the apple delights treats though, but she LOVES apples, so not surprising!

THE VERDICT:

We paid $19 for this box (with a 6 month subscription) and received approximately $20 worth of goodies.  Definitely not one of their higher value boxes – but I can TOTALLY get behind this company, from sponsoring and donating to a shelters to ensuring that their products healthy and/or organic and made in the USA! (treats from overseas scare me due to all the recalls there have been…)  I do hope the box goes back to the higher value next month and this month’s box was just a “miss”, especially since we won’t be using the highest value item (the toy).

Nevertheless, let’s just say that Daisy can’t WAIT for the next HeroDogBox to come!

  1. I’m in the middle of my six-month Hero Dog Box subscription and was somewhat disappointed with the April box. I agree with your review and don’t think the free samples (The Honest Kitchen and shampoo, clearly labeled “not for resale”) are appropriate for a paid subscription service. While my dog thinks the Lil Lovees treats are tasty, they arrived mostly crumbled to bits.

    I did not like that the shampoo wasn’t labeled with ingredients – I actually thought it was a different brand than on the card.

    The Wagatha’s and Hurley were of course the highest-value items. I like the West Paw company and had been wanting o try one of their toys. My dog can’t have plushies so I’ve been happy with the Hero Dog Box toys so far!

    • We are in the same boat (middle of 6 months) – I hope April was just a miss and that the boxes get better again next month! I thought the shampoo was a different brand too!! Took me awhile to find online!
      I’m glad that your dog enjoys the toys! Our dog is pretty picky when it comes to toys, but I know she’ll always love the treats! LOL!
