Subscription services are all the rage these days, with everything from designer clothes to ugly vegetables showing up on doorsteps around the country. They're wildly popular with canine customers as well. After all, what dog wouldn’t enjoy a monthly surprise packed full of healthy food, unusual treats and inventive toys? To help you pick the right one for your pup, we take a closer look at eight of the best subscription boxes for dogs.

BarkBox is crammed full of toys and treats for your pup. Each month, Fido receives a totally unique and customizable box. If he doesn’t like the look or smell of something, you can change the assortment and quantity of everything inside. Select specific toys for your pup’s preference and flavors of snacks by contacting a member of the Happy Team. Where will this month’s theme transport you?
Sign Fido up for BarkBox right now to receive a double box with four toys, four treats, two chews, and a puffer vest. BarkBox monthly subscriptions start at $23.
2. The Farmer’s Dog
Brett Podolsky’s pup, Jada, was suffering from stomach problems. Instead of buying veterinarian-recommended dog food, he prepared it himself using the same ingredients, only fresh. As if by magic, Jada’s stomach issues were solved and The Farmer’s Dog was born. Get real food, made fresh, straight to your door with a personalized meal plan for your furry foodie.
The Farmer’s Dog plans start at $2 per day.
3. Bark Bright
Who’s ready to rid your household of dodgy doggy breath? Bark Bright contains a month’s supply of dental sticks and a tube of triple enzymatic dental gel. Squeeze the gel onto the wide edge of the delicious chicken dental stick and let your pooch do what she does best, chow down! The stick scrubs debris off the teeth and the enzymes break it down, leading to a fresher mouth and improved dental hygiene.
Bark Bright’s monthly subscription starts at $25 for six months.

5. Super Chewer
Brought to you by the makers of BarkBox, Super Chewer is for canines who need something a little more durable. Each month, your pooch will receive two tough toys, two bags of delicious treats and two all-natural meaty chews made in the USA. It also made our list of best gifts for active dogs.

6. A Pup Above
Formerly known as Grocery Pup, A Pup Above aims to fill your pooch’s belly with fresh, real and protein-packed food. Using only non-GMO veggies and USDA meats, the Austin-based dog food specialists vacuum-seal the food and cook it sous vide for two hours. The process kills pathogens but retains all the nutrients needed for a healthy and balanced diet. The bags of frozen food are then delivered to your door, ready to defrost in 30 minutes. Frozen flavors include Texas Beef Stew, Porky’s Luau and Turkey Pawella. Or, check out A Pup Above’s range of dry food flavors that include Beef Pot Roast and Turkey Pilaf.
A Pup Above meal plans start at $7.50 per day.
7. KONG Club

The KONG Club is a members-only service that combines the joys of a monthly unboxing with a helpful app full of daily advice, guidance and tips for pet parents powered by AskVet. Inside every box, there’s a training toy, a fun toy, treats, recipes and tips for getting the best out of Fido’s KONG toys.
KONG Club starts at $34.99 per month.
