Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is PupBox?

    PupBox is a monthly development box for new puppy parents. All PupBox subscribers will receive a monthly box that includes both training and development information as well as premium products that are tailored to your puppy’s age. Each months box will help walk you through the many joys and challenges of puppyhood.

  • What products will be included in my PupBox?

    Each box will include 5-7 premium products. All boxes will include 1 bag of Made in USA training treats and 4-6 additional products that are selected based on the age and physical characteristics of your puppy. If your pup is working on house training we will include pee spray, if your pup is going through teething then we will provide some extra chew toys. The products will rotate each month so your pup will never get bored! We pride ourselves on the quality of each product as well as the personalized nature of each box. We will only send you products that we know your pup will love.

  • What kind of training and educational material will you provide each month?

    Each month your box will include an educational insert. The insert will act as a development guide that will walk you through the changes going on in your new puppy. For instance if your pup is 2 months old we will discuss how to prepare your home and make your new puppy feel like part of the family. Additionally each month we will provide tips and tricks to help with your training effort. All training information is based on positive reinforcement techniques. All training and development information is approved by celebrity puppy trainer Andrea Arden!

  • How do I get started?

    Click the "Get Started" button on the homepage, or "Join" in the navigation bar, and you will be directed to our puppy profile. Fill out all of the necessary information about your pup and we will make sure to personalize the box based on your every need. We will bill you upfront and ship the box directly to your doorstep. Oh, and we will cover the shipping charges for all US based subscribers. Simple as that.

  • I have an adult dog, can I still sign up?

    Of course you can, all dogs are puppies in our eyes! All adult dogs will receive 4-7 premium products hand selected by the PupBox team. They will not be age specific, but we will customize every other aspect of your box. We will even throw in a more advanced training trick or helpful tip for you and your best friend to work on.

  • Are your products safe for my puppy? Where are the products made?

    Each puppy has individual needs and sensitive digestive systems. It is best to inquire with your personal vet about products that your puppy should or should not eat, play with, or use. PupBox does review products for safety, and has a full team of puppy product testers trying each product for quality.

    All treats are sourced from the USA, and chews are sourced from the USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand. Our toys are sourced from all over the world.

  • Do you offer tough toys for pups that are heavy chewers?

    We know that many pups, large and small, can be hard on their plush friends. Each PupBox is catered to your pup's changing needs, and we include tougher toys for ages and sizes that are typically tough chewers. If you find that a toy included in your PupBox doesn't meet your pup's standard then just reach out to us and let us know ( We will replace any items you don't love, and will work with you to make sure future shipments only include toys that are more suitable for your best fur-end.

    A quick side note from the product team at PupBox - We encourage you to embrace your pup's destruction! Make sure to always supervise your pup's play, and take away any stray fluff, rubber, or rope that might become a choking hazard. Ripping a toy to shreds is a great way for your pup to release both mental and physical energy, and we encourage you to let your pup destroy the occasional stuffed duck, monkey or bear : )

    Selecting the right toy's that engage your pup is a big part of what we do at PupBox. Holler at us, with any product feedback, and if you don't love something or you feel your pup needs tougher toys please let us know so we can make it right.

  • What if my pup has a food allergy?

    Food allergies are Fur-real! We want to make sure your box only includes treats and chews that your pup can have. We have included some common food allergies in our profile process. Just check off which allergies your pup has and we will do our very best to accommodate or substitute for a suitable treat or toy. If the allergy you are looking for is not included, then just add a few notes so our team is aware of your pup's needs.

    Both the allergy selection and notes section is part of the Account overview screen in our profile process. If you have additional questions about allergies, please don't hesitate to bark at us:

  • Do you include rawhide?

    We do not include rawhide products in the box. Rawhide is often heavily treated with chemicals and difficult to digest. We do however include rawhide alternatives to help cater to the chewing needs of both puppy and adult dogs. Products such as bully sticks, ears, and bones are not made or treated in the same way as rawhide, and are often included in your monthly box. Always consult your Vet if you are concerned about a specific product or product category.
