The theme for the July PoochPerks box is “Ice Cream Partyl”. Being that it is summer and National Ice Cream Day is July 16th, the theme is quite fitting.
The toys in the PoochPerks Box are:
- PrideBites Ice Cream Toy – (retail value $9.99) It’s always great getting a familiar brand named toy in our box and PrideBites is no exception. PrideBites toys are famous for their ability to stay afloat. Unfortunately, Bruce Wayne is not a fan of the water and we have not had the pleasure of playing with this toy in the water, however, it makes for a fun prop.
- FouFit Ice Cream Cone Freezable Dog Toy – (retail value $7.99) This is the perfect sized ice cream toy for a small dog! Besides being adorable, it is pretty functional too. Like the PrideBites toy, this ice cream toy can also float. In addition, if it gets too hot out, you can soak it in water, freeze it, then give it to your dog for a nice cold toy to play with. How inventive! It also has a squeaker in the middle of the ice cream.
- FouFit Fruit Wedge Freezable Toy – (retail value $7.99) As you can see, we got the kiwi wedge. I used to eat kiwi often, Bruce Wayne has never had it before. This too is a great sized toy for a small dog. This kiwi slice has the same features as the FouFit ice cream cone.
The treats in the July PoochPerks Box are:
- Puppy Cake Puppy Scoops Dog Ice Cream – (retail value $6.99 for 12 oz.) Yup, you read that right! Ice cream for dogs! The flavor we received is Maple Bacon, which I’m sure any dog would love to have! I know some humans that would want it too, lol. All you have to do is add water and freeze. Come back a few hours later and viola, you have doggie ice cream!
- Healthy Dogma Groovy Granola Bar Dog Treats – (retail value $5.95 for 5.25 oz.) I’m not exactly sure how these treats fit into the ice cream theme, but we can certainly see the granola and summertime connection. I love that these treats are made without any corn, wheat or soy!
Ingredients: Granola (Oat flour, Brown rice syrup, Oatmeal, Rice flour, Flaxseed, Coconut oil, Cranberries, Carrots, Coconut flakes, Cinnamon, Eggs)
- Exclusively Dog Smoothers – (retail value $6.99 for 7.0 oz.) The flavor we received is banana strawberry. These are described as a chewy treat and are a little too big for Bruce Wayne if left whole. They should be easy to break for small dogs. Although, they are wheat, corn and soy free, which I love, they do contain tapioca flour, which I keep away from Bruce Wayne.
Ingredients: Tapioca flour, Brown rice syrup, Glycerin, Dehydrated ground potato, Coconut oil, Dried yogurt (dried cultured skim milk), Palm oil, Ground pea, Banana, Canola oil, Phosphoric acid, Lactic acid, Glucono-delta-lactone, Calcium sulfate, Natural strawberry flavor, Beet powder (color), Mixed tocopherols (preservative), Rosemary extract, Acetic acid
- Pet Cakes Hip & Joint Frozen Treat – (retail value $9.99 for 1 mix and bone shaped pan) The flavor we received is “very berry”. This is much like the doggie ice cream, you mix the powder with water and freeze the mixture. I love that you get a bone shaped tray with the powder. Even though the bone will be too big for Bruce Wayne once it’s been frozen, you can easily cut it into smaller pieces and refreeze anything that you don’t initially use.
Ingredients: Dehydrated yogurt, Collagen hydrolysate, Dried honey, Blueberry powder, Strawberry powder, Turmeric
Estimated Value of the July PoochPerks Box – $55.89 (WOAH!)
Overall Opinion: I loved this box! PoochPerks did a great job of sticking to the ice cream theme while introducing us to some fun, innovative and yummy treats! For the most part, Bruce Wayne is able to enjoy most of this fun box. The highlight items for us were actually the FouFit toys. I hardly pick toys, but they are the perfect size for Bruce Wayne and I love that they double as a cooling agent. I’m not sure if you can still get your hands on this box, but if you can, I highly recommend it!
B-DUBS VERDICT: Bruce Wayne gives the July PoochPerks 4 out of 4 grinchy paws!

*The Fine Print* – Pooch Perks sends toys and treats based on your dog’s size at the time you sign up for a subscription or single box and even if you have the same size dog as me, you may have received different products (usually same theme though) than Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne is an affiliate for PoochPerks and receives a free box in return for our review, however, these are solely my honest opinions of this month’s box based on Bruce Wayne’s size and preference.
