How It Works

The company provides treats, toys, and fashionable bandanas for pets of all sizes in a pet subscription box customized for your pup. They accommodate your dog’s allergies and chewing habits, too, with allergy-friendly treat options and super chewer toy upgrades.

Every delivery contains five items: two toys, two treats, and a bandana. All the items revolve around a theme, which changes monthly. Which toys are included per box depend on the size of your dog and your customization options, such as adding the Heavy Chewer option.

To subscribe, click on “GET A BOX” on the website’s homepage. Each new subscriber will receive the current month’s themed box. Select your subscription term from the list; 1 Month, 3 Month, 6 Month, and 12 Month options are available. Then click “BUY NOW” to continue.

The next page features an offer for a Heavy Chewer upgrade. This option costs $5 more and includes durable and tough toys. Click either “I WANT THIS” or “NO THANKS” to continue to the signup page.

Your next options are your dog’s gender, size, and allergies. Size selections range from Tiny to Huge, while allergy options include no known allergies, grain allergy, chicken/grain allergy, and beef/grain allergy.

Make your selections, then click “CONTINUE.” One final offer will pop up, for a specific toy upgrade. Choose “I WANT THIS” or “NO THANKS” to continue.

Finally, review your order, enter your account, shipping, and billing information and then click “CHECKOUT” to make your purchase. You can also check the “This is a gift” box to send the subscription to another party. Alternatively, you can navigate to the Gift page and order a gift subscription that way.

To order a Heavy Chewers box, you can click on “FOR HEAVY CHEWERS” on the upper left side of the website’s homepage, then follow the same steps as above to complete your order.

What Makes The Dapper Dog Box Unique?

The Dapper Dog Box caters to dogs’ needs rather than following a one-size-fits-all approach. Every box contains toys and treats that are custom-selected for your pet’s size, chewing nature, and allergies.

There are options for heavy chewers and dogs who are allergic to various proteins or grains, plus the treats are always 100 percent natural, made in the USA and organic or grain free, don’t contain artificial preservatives, and don’t have soy or corn.  

Plus, each box purchase donates $1 to rescues and shelters across the US.

The Dapper Dog Box Reviews

According to The Dapper Dog Box reviews on the company’s Facebook page, they earn a five out of five overall. This is thanks to subscribers’ comments that highlight the uniqueness of the products received, the quality of the items, and their praise for the customer service.

One The Dapper Dog Box review noted that the owner, Kerrie, reached out to them personally regarding the subscriber’s order. It’s clear that the owner is very involved in day-to-day business, which is a perk mentioned in many reviews.

My Dog Is A Heavy Chewer, Is This Box Right For Them?

Company History

The Dapper Dog Box is the brainchild of Kerrie, the original founder. She explains on the company’s website that she had a hard time finding a subscription box for her dog, especially because her dog needed allergy-friendly options.

Kerrie noted that her company’s goal is to deliver healthy treats and durable toys to subscribers’ pets, saving time and money while ensuring quality products that your dogs will love. As customers have noted in The Dapper Dog Box review responses, Kerrie is also very hands-on with answering customer inquiries.

For a glimpse into a typical subscription box with the company, see the unboxing video below from the brand themselves. Also, note that each box contains toys tailored to your dog’s size, so the pups in the video received smaller toys in line with their size.
