Subscription boxes are trending, and who can blame us? What’s not to love about getting a treat in the mail, whether that’s a monthly shipment of flowers or a weekly package of food (see you later, grocery shopping!). Shipments that show up like magic are so fun that, sometimes, we like to spread that love around. That’s where pet subscription boxes come in.

Designed to delight our furry family members, these boxes ship stocked with treats, toys and more. When I set out to try the Goody Box from Chewy – their answer to the subscription box trend – I expected a few toys my dog may or may not like. What I got was so much more.

How the Goody Box from Chewy works.

First off, I should note that a Goody Box from Chewy is not a subscription box. It’s a one-time shipment that’s tailored to your pet. And, after opening my Goody Box, I think that’s a good thing. My dog’s toy basket is now completely overflowing. I honestly can’t imagine keeping up with a monthly increase of that many toys, and that’s saying something because my pet is a Destroyer of Toys.

That said, if you did want to set your pet up with a recurring shipment, you can use Chewy’s Autoship feature to set up your own subscription – on your own schedule. When you do, you get 30 percent off your first Autoship, plus 5 to 10 percent off select products in all your future Autoships. And you can change or cancel your Autoship at any time. So whether you want a monthly, quarterly or yearly present for your pet, Chewy’s got you covered.

Here are the key features for each Goody Box:

  • You get five or more full-sized items tailored to your pet.
  • You get free shipping.
  • And you pay just $20.

Seems pretty simple, right? And when I say the Goody Box can be tailored to your pet, I mean it. Chewy has a “Tiny But Mighty” box for that little dog who thinks she runs the dog park, a “Grain-Free Box” for your cat or dog with tummy troubles and even a “Made in the USA” box for when you and your four-legged friend feel a swell of patriotism. There are also “Happy Birthday” boxes for your pet’s big day.

You pick your box style, but you don’t pick the contents. Instead, you leave that in Chewy’s very capable hands. And, I must say, when I received my box, I was impressed.

My Goody Box from Chewy

My box from Chewy arrived on a rainy day. We’ve been having this uncharacteristically wet winter in Southern California and my dog – a dingo lookalike mutt named Babou – has been going nuts. And, naturally, he’s driving me crazy right along with him. So when the box showed up on my doorstep, I tore into it. And, I swear, Babou must have known it was for him. He paced nervously around me as I pulled off the packing tape and started sorting through the goods. We were both impressed to find a bunch of:



Seriously, it was a big box and it was stuffed. Both Babou and I were pretty thrilled. The puzzle toy, in particular, was a real treat for both of us. With the rain keeping us both indoors, stuffing the box full of toys (it came with three small ones inside) and tucking a treat at the bottom was enough to keep us entertained while we waited out the steady drizzle.

My review of Chewy’s Goody Box

All in all, would I recommend the Goody Box? Abso-freaking-lutely. Every toy they shipped me is high quality. My dog has been thrilled with (and unable to destroy) each item. And as for the treats? They’re a slam dunk. The freeze-dried treats, in particular, are a fun new discovery. Babou is a finicky eater, but I’ve found that crumbling two of them on top of his food will have him polishing off dinner in record time.

Between the freeze-dried treats and the puzzle toy, I ended up with two items I would never have chosen myself that I now consider must-haves. So if you’re looking to spice up your pet’s life, the Goody Box is an amazing resource. Chewy has such a wide range of toys and treats that it would take you quite some time to shop their entire selection. Letting their pros hand-pick items for your four-legged friend is an excellent way to change things up.

Plus, Chewy has amazing customer service and an 100 percent satisfaction guarantee on every item in every order. So you can rest easy knowing that, while you’re trusting them to pick the contents of your box, you’re going to be happy with the results. I know this is all making it seem like they paid me to write this review but, I swear, they didn’t. I’m just genuinely impressed with the box I received. It saved my (and, probably, Babou’s) sanity during a really rainy week and I’m grateful!
