Well, it could be the regular dog food and treats delivery or an occasional toy bonanza but we never really went that extra step in fur parenting, which consists in organising a dog birthday party or order a gift box to celebrate a special occasion. With our two rescue twin Malinois celebrating a combined birthday for the first time - Aramis only joined our pack in September 2015- we thought the occasion was worthy of going that extra mile!
Never enough treats to go around in your house? You would select the Pawgie Treat Box or if new toys are your dog’s main "raison d’être" you would definitely choose the Pawgie Gift Box. Regardless of your pick, all Pawgie boxes include only Australian treats made from natural ingredients, supporting other local businesses and really pawsome toys.
We did mention at the time of ordering that our pack consisted of 3 large Belgian Shepherds and the company happily swapped the usual fluffy squeaky toy (a staple in special occasion boxes) to something that would survive a little longer!
So what did our dogs receive in their Pawgie Birthday Box?
First, we liked the care that was taken in packaging the box’s contents: from the confettis scattered on top of the items to a special birthday card with our dogs’ names and two "his" and "hers" polka-dot party hats (these looked a bit small for our Malinois), it was great fun to unwrap and discover what was hiding under the colourful paper!
Aramis and Porthos sadly were solely focused on the contents, especially those of the smelly kind and they were in for a treat or two! Of course they can’t read but the completely edible “Yappy Birthday” Cake Card from Wagalot did make their day. It came complete with candle which you can place in the biscuit’s hole for the hoomans to have fun too!
So Where to Start for Fun?
As with all Pawgie Birthday Boxes, our box also included three bags of all natural treats and two toys!
One of our favourite staples was included, the Lolly Dogs Party Mix from Diamond Dog Food and Bakery.
These buttons come in Strawberry & Vanilla, Banana and Carob flavours and are best kept in the fridge during the summer months.
They smell lovely even to us and are always a hit with our dogs!
Finally the choice of the Large KONG Squeezz Ring with Rope as an interactive toy was perfect for us and our dogs. Designed for durability with a recessed, protected squeaker, it can be used for both indoor and outdoor use. It is fun in tossing, tugging and retrieving games and for those lucky enough to have a pool or creek nearby, it also floats and it will be fantastic during those warmer months!
Overwhelmingly positive as we found the Pawgie Birthday Box offered a great mix of instant treats which our dogs enjoyed on their special day whilst the toys selected are high-quality and safe and should deliver months of fun.
We also felt that this box delivered “value for money” as it does not contain cheap, nasty imported products and is clearly focused on delivering natural treats to our canine companions.
Would we consider buying one to celebrate a special occasion like a Birthday or Christmas? The answer is a resounding yes and those who know us best say that we are “a hard sell” as we come across so many dog products and services!
