Puppy Presents: Three paw-some monthly doggy gift boxes to try today!

Posted on October 19, 2016: Those of us who are regular online shoppers (and I would imagine ALL of us are), know this feeling all too well. A few days of excited anticipation, hearing the doorbell ring and finally(!) having that beautiful brown box of Internet-peddled goodies, from books to shoes, perfumes to auto parts. Nothing beats the feeling of opening up that box and partaking of the treasures inside. Being an avid e-commerce aficionado for a good part of the past decade, I still haven’t gotten over that feeling.

Now, what if I told you that - you can share this beautiful consumerist guilty pleasure with your dog! You and your best friend can tear into an immaculately wrapped box of goodies – toys, treats and apparel – meant exclusively for your paw prince or princess.

We at Gingertail found three popular online services that deliver doggy gift boxes for a monthly subscription fee to your home. The general procedure involves you selecting your dog’s age, size, personality, and breed. Then you decide how much you want to spend – packages range from Rs 1,250/month to Rs 13,500/month. Finally, you confirm your order and get a box or boxes, depending on your subscription package, delivered to your doorstep. Here’s the low down:

What do other Woof Boxers say?

“My Scruffy (Shih-Tzu dog) was never too fond of toys except the balls. But this Crab-shaped toy is his favorite now. Woofbox came with a surprise for him n me both. It had 6 items that included 2 toys, shampoo, tick-repellant collar, soft chew duck treats and most important stuff- 'Tear Stain Cleaner'. Shih-Tzus generally have watery eyes, hence reddish stains. The red-colour is due to breeding of red-yeast. I am happy to finally find a solution delivered right at my doorstep.Recommend Woofbox to all pet-owners.” – Ms. Lakhanpal
