Consider monthly subscription boxes geared towards animals and the people who love them. Everyone loves getting something in the mail, your pet will too!
Subscription boxes are themed packages sent monthly to your door. It seems there are boxes geared towards any special interest or hobby from cooking to makeup to popular tv shows and movies. Pet owners are no exception. A quick google search brought up over twenty different options for pet-themed boxes, and not just for dogs and cats but also rats, rabbits, and birds! The boxes contain a variety of toys, treats, and apparel for pets and their owners, and every month is something new. Below are some of the top-rated boxes available for shipping in Canada.
BarkBox – Each month is a different theme consisting of toys, treats, and chews. One of the most popular subscription boxes.
PupJoy – A completely customizable box of toys and treats. Great for the dog who has dietary sensitivities or if you would prefer only toys you can do that too!
