Spoiled Rotten Dog Box Review: Spoiling Your Pet Naturally

Posted on Jul 31 2013 - 9:55pm by Susan Bewley

Spoiled Rotten Dog Box

Do you love to spoil your animals? Come on, be honest. We all have a soft spot for our dog or cat, especially when they give us those cute looks. To many of us, they are no different than kids, and we are always trying to find the healthiest, most fun treats for them. Since we got our Alaskan Malamute puppy back in May, she has been the center of attention. It’s almost hard to believe she is going to be six months old on August 21. The good news is that now that she is a bit bigger, can enjoy more of the big girl treats on the market. While I only feed Reya natural food and treats, it is still overwhelming with all the choices on the market. As someone who loves subscription boxes, I started looking into some of the companies out there, where I came across Petflow’s Spoiled Rotten Box. When I approached them to review one of their boxes, they were excited for Reya to sink her teeth into these adorable treats and provide an opinion!

Spoiled Rotten Box: What is it?

Since I try to keep our home as natural-oriented as possible, I was very picky about pet boxes – I didn’t want Reya introduced to anything that might be dangerous. With Petflow’s Spoiled Rotten Box, I didn’t have to be concerned since it was filled with only items from premium, natural companies that make products right here in the United States. Not only that, but everyone on the Spoiled Rotten box team spends a year testing the toys, treats, and accessories going in the box, letting you know you are really getting the best hand-picked products. From what I have seen, this truly is the case, making it the perfect box for pet lovers or as a fun gift for someone who seems to have just about everything!

Spoiled Rotten Box: InClover Grin Daily Treats

Like many owners, I try buying treats that help my pup’s teeth. We had actually just run out of Greenies and I was beginning to worry when the Spoiled Rotten box arrived. The InClover Grin Daily Treats are grain free, all natural, and leave your pets teeth looking beautiful without giving your pup digestive issues. Reya wasn’t sure what to think of these treats at first but very quickly warmed up to them. Now, all I have to do is shake this bag for her to come for her daily dental treat!

Spoiled Rotten Box: Natural Balance L.I.T. Limited Ingredients Treats Jerky Bars

Oh boy, these have to be Reya’s favorite treat in the Spoiled Rotten box. The Natural Balance LIT Limited Ingredient Treats Fish and Sweet Potato Jerky Bars seem to be one of our favorite quiet time treats. These treats are grain free and made without artificial flavors and colors, making them perfect for natural owners like me. The only downside is that they smell strongly of fish (and so does her breath after eating one of these). With how much she loves these treats though, it seems like a fair trade!

Spoiled Rotten Box : Kikkerland Dog Bone Lint Remover

While I love my Reya puppy, I don’t always like wearing her fur. Like every pet owner, I have problems with her shedding everywhere.  Like many Alaskan Malamutes, she has been starting to blow coat – shedding even more than usual. Even though this is completely normal, it means that we are sometimes wearing what seemed like another dog on our clothes. Since we use quite a few lint removers in our house, getting the Kikkerland Dog Bone Lint Remove was much appreciated. This seems like a higher quality lint roller than you get at most stores, allowing you to get more hair off with each sheet!

Spoiled Rotten Box : Randall the Raccoon

Out of all the items in the Spoiled Rotten Box, this was one of the few items that wasn’t in some ways enjoyed or used because of Reya. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Randall the Raccoon (he is actually quite adorable), but Reya was just too big for this critter. Luckily, this little stuffing-free squeaker toy did find an owner in our family – Lucy the Ferret! My brother in law’s ferret seemed to have fun with this little toy, when she wasn’t being overwhelmed by a lot of visiting humans. As you can see from the picture, Randall got her seal of approval!

Spoiled Rotten Box: Savory Prime Butcher Bone

I won’t lie, this was the only item in the Spoiled Rotten Box that made me nervous. Until this toy, I had never let Reya play with a bone, mostly due to scary stories from our vet. From what I was reading on the package, however, it seemed like it could be a good treat if she was very carefully watched. The Savory Prime Butcher Bone is a 100% pure hambone that is all natural, hickory smoked, and still had a bit of meat around the bone. From the moment the package opened, Reya was ALL about this bone. She sat in the middle of the kitchen floor and chomped down gently on this bone, seeming to just be taking in the flavor and texture. Once all the meat was clear and I saw her going into the marrow of the bone, it was tossed. For the time she had it though, Reya did seem to feel like she was spoiled and licked the floor where her bone was for about five minutes!

Spoiled Rotten Box: Overall

As you can guess, I am a big fan of the Spoiled Rotten box. I have tried a lot of subscription boxes lately and I have to say, this is one of the best. Each of the treats in this box are full size and give your pet plenty of time to see exactly what they think of all these treats. While Reya may not have been able to play with Randall the Raccoon herself, at least another family pet got to enjoy it, making each items in this box worth it for us. Due to how much enjoyment this box has brought my family’s four-legged friends, I will happily give it an A+ rating!

Spoiled Rotten Box: Where to Purchase

Want to try this box for yourself? You can currently subscribe to the Spoiled Rotten box at the PetFlow Website. Here, you can sign up for either the dog or cat version of this box, both of which cost $24.95 a month. While this may seem pricy, realize too that each box does contain around $40 in products, making it a bargain since all the items in side are full size. In my opinion, this seems like a steal with how much I spend on treats!

    Glad to see the Natural Balance bars got approval. I use that brand also. I bought some really rich (didn't know that at the time) treats in a different brand at the store. Lily got really sick.  I have not bought anything along those lines since.We buy fresh bones at the butcher. She will work on that bone for quite some time to get it clean and then carry it around all the time. But she will toss it which is ruining our floor. So what is up with the marrow?  You said you took the bone away.

      Our vet scared us quite a bit with fear of the bones splintering. A lot of vets now are recommending that you never give a dog bones due to the risk of internal bleeding. When she cracked the outer part of the bone, we tossed it just to make sure. She is still teething so we are being extra careful 😉

    I know that you focused on the dog box but I'm so glad to see that they have cat ones as well!  Finally, equal opportunity!

      I have been very tempted about asking them to review their cat box! My kitty is older but we have a lot of cats in our family!

    I gotta say..I love that it comes with a lint roller haha! Pet owners can never have too many of those around the house, or the car, or a spare in the drawer at work 🙂

    • Susan Bewley August 1, 2013 at 12:29 pm - Reply

      Only a dog or cat owner really understands! Our pets seem to like leaving a piece of themselves with us 😉

    I really want to get one of these subscription boxes for Thorne, but I'm curious do they consider the size of your dog? My little one is Rat Terrier/Jack Russel mix and that bone is about as big as her! lol 

    • Susan Bewley August 1, 2013 at 12:26 pm - Reply

      The boxes seem to be geared toward small/medium sized dogs. They seem to put one item in for big dogs though. I actually have the opposite problem with most boxes since Reya is so big! (5 months and already 65 – 70 lbs!). The little toy that Lucie was playing with was meant for small dogs. Its about the same size as that ferret! lol

    Oh my goodness, the pets in our house are more than spoiled! But our pup does seem to be the worst of all. I am sure that our mail carrier/UPS would giggle if they saw this box being delivered. I am impressed that they go beyond dogs, it has been difficult trying to find items like this for all other pets.

    • Susan Bewley August 1, 2013 at 12:27 pm - Reply

      I know that all too well! We have a mini petting zoo at our house between Reya, three rats, bearded dragons, and turtles! I was surprised to see they had a cat box too, but I think having the option is great!

    I am glad I can see this review, now go out and buy this for my dogs!

    We have a pretty spoiled dog at home who would think this rocks!

    Spoiled Rotten is an understatement. Where as this might be great for some families for there pets this wouldn't work for us. I have yet to find anything for a dog bone treat that she doesn't turn her nose up to. Because she is so spoiled I don't think we could take advantage enough for it to be cost effective. I think for a family that has several dogs or cats this might work for them.

    • Susan Bewley August 5, 2013 at 12:01 pm - Reply

      I agree, you have to REALLY know your dog. Reya has yet to turn her nose to anything. My mother’s Yorkie, however, this would be a waste. She is very VERY picky about what she eats and most of the time doesn’t even want her own food. I wouldn’t recommend any of the subscription boxes to dogs who are on a diet, have medical issues, or are super super picky!

    This sounds like a great product and I am going to have to check this out!  Is that your dog in the pic above?  She is adorable!  Anyway, I love my dogs and want to give them the best and healthiest possible.  Thank you for sharing this wonderful review.

      Yup, that is my Reya puppy! As you can see, she is pretty spoiled! Her health is a number one priority to me 🙂

    Wow, that's quite a pet lovers package! People do often think of the family petas another child. In a way they are. Why not get them a treat?

    Maybe this would make my dog like me again lol. He's so moody these days. 

    • Susan Bewley August 7, 2013 at 10:33 pm - Reply

      LOL! Well, it made my Reya puppy happy so I wouldn’t be suprised if he’s happy too. Another one of my friends recently got the box and her dogs love it!

    i used to get one of those subscription boxes for my dog but i wasnt really happy with it.  this one looks better but a little too pricey for me at this time 🙁

      What box did you get, Judy?

      • judy gardner August 10, 2013 at 8:51 pm - Reply

  14. Sherry Compton August 8, 2013 at 6:06 pm - Reply

    Yes, my family spoils our little one, too. We have a five year old maltipoo and try to buy the best for her.  My daughter watches reviews and checks ingredient lists.  I like it that these products are all tested and personally picked.  What a variety you get, too!  Glad to see you give it an A+; it looks really interesting.

    This box looks so cool. My dogs would love it. Wish I had some extra money to buy one.

    My dogs are so picky I am afraid they would snub more than half the box.

    I love to spoil my do rotten. I am not sure he would like everything in this box but I bet he would at least try it before sticking his nose up to it.

    I try to keep my home natural too, even when it comes to the pets, so thank you for introducing me to the Spoiled Rotten box. Love that I can purchase treats made in the USA!

    I adore my 2 dogs so obviously when I saw this review I HAD to read it! I subscribe to a few beauty boxes but I haven't ever thought about looking for a box fo rmy dogs. After reading your review I think I just might try Spoiled Rotten Box! Also, I'm a fan of PetFlow so that's a bonus! Thanks!
