Real Dog Box – The freshest Dog Treats on the Planet

Real Dog Box is a dog treat and chew subscription box.

They make and deliver dog treats and chews that are:

  • Air-dried
  • Convenient
  • Single-ingredient
  • Healthy
  • Nutritional
  • Wholesome
  • Unprocessed
  • Tasty
  • 100% meat
  • Small batch
  • Species-appropriate
  • Superfood

Before you roll your eyes at yet another dog treat subscription box, bear with me. This one is the real deal.

I’m no longer easily impressed with treats since I made the switch from kibble to raw dog food in 2015.

As a matter of fact, I’m the self-proclaimed queen and lover of single-ingredient dog treats.

I was, however, honestly blown away by the Real Dog subscription box I received in the mail. Everything from the packaging and labeling to content and explanation thereof was appealing.

What’s In The Real Dog Box?

Real Dog Subscription Box
Our Real Dog Box treat subscription box

As the brand name suggests, this product is a food-based subscription box and doesn’t contain any toys or accessories.

Every single box contains all the components from the raw dog food diet, which follows the Muscle Meat + Organ Meat + Bone formula:

  • Muscle meat
  • Seafood
  • Organ meat
  • 3 Chews

You’ll get your paws on single-ingredient, unprocessed, air-dried, preservative/antibiotic/hormone/additive-free, USDA inspected & human grade treats/chews!

I think it’s a very clever and educational approach to include cards in each box that tell you exactly what you received, the guaranteed analysis, background information about where it was sourced, as well as feeding suggestions.

The contents of each box change from month to month, and the following are just an example of one of many boxes we’ve received:

Seafood: 2 oz of Wild-Caught Smelt

Sourced from Canada, made in California.

Real Dog Box: Great Training Rewards

I put Missy in a down-stay while snapping a picture of her and the beef spleen, and then rewarded her with several pieces of it for holding her position.

It’s easy to brake them apart into smaller pieces.

That means that a smaller pup could also easily be treated with bite size pieces appropriate for his or her size/weight/caloric restrictions.

Real Dog Box: Re-Energizing Snack During Playtime

The picture below shows Buzz eagerly anticipating a wild-caught smelt. Notice his beloved chuck-it ball by his side?

He dropped it no questions asked when I presented him with the fish – that’s saying a lot because Mr. Buzz is a ball fanatic.

Real Dog Box: Convenient Food Topper

The air-dried smelt on top of the pups’ raw meal almost makes it look like a piece of art, doesn’t it?! Healthy edible art, that is. 

Besides topping any diet off with the real treats, they can also be rehydrated to make a softer meal for older pups and/or those with dental issues. 

I remember Buzz had to be on a soft food diet for 10 days after having broken a tooth which required dental surgery. This was shortly before I began our raw feeding journey in early 2015.

Real Dog Box: Air-Dried & Pathogen Tested

Real Pet Food air dries their chews and treats as opposed to baking or treating them with high heat in order to lock in all the nutrients.

They are sliced and/or placed on stainless steel grates in a well air-circulated room for 30-120 hours – pawlà, that’s it!

Easy yet highly effective.

All chews and treats are tested for pathogens (includes salmonella & e.coli) after the drying process, mainly for our human safety.

A dog’s stomach is much more acidic than ours, and their saliva contains digestive enzymes which are designed to neutralize bacteria.

That means that they are much better equipped to handle potential bacteria (I wrote about this in my Raw Feeding Myth Buster Series.

1 treat and chew box runs at $39, which may seem a little high at first.

However, when you think about the contents of the box and the quality of both chews & treats, as well as the free shipping, the price is more than fair.

I also like the fact that Real Dog Box doesn’t make it hard to cancel a box.

That can easily be done under account details in your customer account. After all, life happens and the vast majority of us pet owners aren’t millionaires.

I’ve certainly had to discontinue a subscription service before, and I’ve also put my Real Dog Subcription Box on hold when I was in-between jobs.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee – Set Preferences Or Allergy Restrictions

Real Pet Food guarantees your satisfaction 100%.

Not only are you able to set allergy restrictions & preferences. In case your pup might not be enthused by a specific treat, they will replace it and ensure that it won’t get sent your way again.

Paw high 5 for that customer service!

In A Nutshell – The Real Dog Subscription Box Is Not Just For Raw Feeders!

While this subscription box is certainly any raw feeder’s dream box, kibble-fed pups will enjoy it just as much as their raw-fed furry friends. 

It adds a nutritional boost to any diet, can be fed as a snack, training reward, or food topper, and takes personal preferences/allergies into account! 

Highly recommended!

Do you think outside the box when you’re treating your furry friends? As always, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below!

    Sounds like an interesting box. I am not a big fan of some of those chews though like the pig’s ears. I know a dog once who got a blockage from one of those.

    1. K9sOverCoffee Avatar

      Yes, it’s certainly a unique one. I’m sorry to hear about that blockage – it’s definitely always a good idea to supervise any chewing.

    This is really cool. I like the most natural food and treats so this would be a good special treat box. Missy and Buzz look like they are pretty happy with it!!

    1. K9sOverCoffee Avatar

      I completely agree – would also make a great gift idea. Christmas will be here again before we know it 😉 The pups loved it – Missy will eat just about anything, but when Buzz drops his favorite ball for food, that’s saying something!!

    Sounds awesome! Is this company focused on raw feeders or all dog owners? Like you said, most dogs would love it I am sure!

    1. K9sOverCoffee Avatar

      Doesn’t it?! The company’s focus is on all dog owners 🙂
