Are you looking for new toys and treats that would keep your dog’s tail wagging in delight? Are you having difficulty choosing considering your best friend’s size, age, temperament, and breed? This dilemma is the reason why dog subscriptions had become a trend today.
As some of my readers may know, I dogsit exclusively for a very wealthy client. They have a very spoiled, very sweet nature Shih-Tzu (Charlie Bear!) That pup is easy-going, extremely affectionate, and piggy. I think that dog eats better than I do…ha! As well as a great buddy to our dog (Grace) this little Shih Tzu is also an amazing side hustle for income. I netted $6,000 a year with very minimal work whenever they needed Charlie acclamations. Little Charlie is low on exercise and he loves being near humans and sleeping in the sun most of the day. I only wish I had 10 other Shih-Tzus all the same! I found this client on Rover and Charlie’s family and ours have become good friends!
The ONE thing that comes out of pocket most of the time (although we do get dog toys & treats from his owners) is treats and toys for Grace and Charlie to play and share. The doggy subscription box idea was great during the pandemic with a newborn baby! We didn’t really want to stop by Petsmart to pick up new dog toys and treats when there’s a dangerous virus out. This seemed like a perfect choice for us!

Why Get Dog Subscription Boxes?
Aside from the fun you and your dog experience in unveiling the box, the products these boxes contain are guaranteed best, high-quality, and all-natural, hand-picked by experts. In fact, items in subscription boxes are usually exclusive and are not available at the local grocery or nearby pet stores. Even better as it saves you money as products usually cost a fraction of what you would pay purchasing from retail shops.
There are many companies to choose from, each providing a variety of goodies for your canine companion. And one of the best monthly dog subscription box providers at present is Shaggy Swag.

Conveniently, ShaggySwag accepts all major credit cards and PayPal for your payment. You can also get discounts by using promo codes that their partners offer.
Is it worth the spend?
The freedom of getting all you want in one box makes ShaggySwag a very interesting choice for a monthly subscription box. Customizable and fun, perfectly curated monthly box. After 3 months though, they recycled many of the same/similar items. I’m guessing they had excess stock. The toys and treats were just as good quality as I expected in comparison to other dog subscription boxes!
If you received a bad box or a damaged item, you contact ShaggySwag, and they will send a replacement item free of charge so both you and your dog’s satisfaction are met. You can do the same in case a different item from what you ordered was sent to you.
Canceling Shaggy swag
After 3 months we decided not to renew because the variety was lacking. But for $25? If it had more variety then it would be pretty worth it. I mean I counted the value at a DISCOUNT brick & mortar pet store as $20 – and that’s the value price. So $5 more for that with free shipping isn’t bad. If there was more variety, I would LOVE to keep subscribing. The price was right, the toys are fun, seeing our pup crazy for all the contents is soooo worth the money.
