Review + Giveaway: Urban Dog Box Subscription Service

Urban Dog Box - Edmonton - Canada - Monthly Subscription Service

Box subscription services are pretty popular these days. I’ve tried a few different kinds – organic food, meal/ingredients, a technology/programming box, even a box for “cat ladies!” The latest box service I’m trying is for Olive and Artie – it’s called the Urban Dog Box and we received a box to try this week and a box to giveaway to readers/followers!

Artie couldn’t wait to dig into his Urban Dog Box!

The Urban Dog Box is based right here in Edmonton and ships across Canada.

It was created back in 2015 though has just been recently been starting to ramp up business. 

Their mission is to source and provide high quality, healthy/organic treats for your puppers and woofers.

Olive and Artie were pretty patient as we assessed the Urban Dog Box contents.

The Urban Dog Box prides themselves in delivering high quality, handpicked products, tailored for the size of your dog. 

Artie and Olive got a 4-6 item box but the Urban Dog Box offers three box types: 2-3 items, 4-6 items, or 7-12 items. You can order one-time, 3-months, or 6-month packages and the pricing varies depending on size of box and how many repeat orders you commit to. Box prices range from $15 to $49 /month, plus a flat rate of $5 shipping. There also isn’t any recurring charge – so if your 3-month plan is completed, you won’t be auto-charged for another 3-months.

Happy with their Urban Dog Box haul!

This is what Olive and Artie received in their Urban Dog Box: 

So they got a pretty good variety of toys and treats! And the best part is – it’s conveniently delivered right to our door!

Grandma Lucy’s Oven-Baked Organic Dog Treats!

Generally the Urban Dog Box products are also available for purchase in Canada (but if they find a product out of the U.S. that they think is of a high quality, they might sneak that in as well). The owner thought it would be a nice way for dog owners to try different goodies and if they like it then they could go out and buy more – either in stores or eventually, the Urban Dog Box would like to incorporate an online store where you could order individual items that are featured in the boxes. 

Plus – home delivery is also nice!

  • Kaitlyn

    I have tried a lot of different dog boxes, but haven’t heard of this one made right in my back yard! I love that they don’t auto renew your subscription! That’s a great feature. My dog’s favourite toy came from a subscription box, bark box. It’s called a ‘dog egg’ and has lasted her a good three years!! It’s looking a little rough these days from all that chewing, but she loves it anyway. ;)

  • Tom

    Oakley would love to win an Urban Dog box prize. He LOVES anything that he can chew on and likes to try new things

  • Gary

    Daughters dog, as typical, loves bones, treats, ropes… I enjoy placing a biscuit on the tip of the nose, and she waits patiently for the “go” command. It’s not often that one can find a company that is interested in providing quality and service, for a reasonable price. This is one to watch…

  • Lisa

  • Leah Koolman

    My pups favourite toy is a stuffed chewbacca that used to squeak and crinkle, and has been so loved that it no longer squeaks or crinkles. Lola makes sure to carry chewy out of her crate when she is let out every morning, it’s the sweetest thing.

  • Wanda B

    My sweet little dog likes ANY kind of treat and his favourite toys are the furry type.

  • Jen Y

    My dogs absolutely love balls and tugs. They run around trying to be the first one to fetch or drag the other dog around the yard

  • The Vivo Pizza ๐Ÿ• at @vivoristoranteyeg is SO tasty! Pulled chicken, signature Vivo sauce, grana padano ๐Ÿง€ Tried a lot of great dishes tonight at #VivoDowntown (behind #MacEwanU) for their new #happyhour #aperitivo menu launch including this one. Good deals, Monday to Friday 3-6 p.m., and 11-6 on weekends too! It was also really nice to meet Vivo @ChefMedi. He's so passionate about his craft. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป And he put together a gluten-free ๐Ÿ• for @theporkgirl that was stellar! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

  • An Instagrammable Wall blast from my past! I used to work at @globaledmonton doing a bunch of things over a few years.. video editing, web producing, news producing, writing and helping people in the Troubleshooter department! Been wanting to photograph this wall for awhile now (#IGWallsofYEG) and finally did this weekend. โ˜บ๏ธApparently it's also a #PokemonGo hot spot lol. ๐Ÿ˜…

  • Had an awesome time touring Instagrammable Walls of Chinatown / east Downtown this weekend with my co-host @britl & this great group of people! There is no shortage of things to do in Edmonton in the summer so I definitely appreciated these guys choosing an #IGWallsofYEG #photowalk! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป This wall is called #ThunderBirdAlley on 105 Ave between 96 and 97 Street. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Would largely go unnoticed for those walking or driving along 97 Street but definitely deserves some attention! Another walk is in the works for September, stay tuned! โ˜บ๏ธ

  • Dreaming of gelato. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿง I was out in #SturgeonCounty tonight at the annual Sturgeon County Bounty #CulinaryCookout and this raspberry lime gelato from @davincigelato was lovely. The #SturgeonCountyBounty is such a stellar event - think Taste of Edmonton & Heritage Festival with awesome #tasteab food but more of a relaxed, less crowded environment, great portion sizes / value, that fresh country air and lovely live music! Mark your calendars for next year- add it to your summer festival list! Check my IG Stories and my pal @argenplath's feed for more scenes from the festival! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • A feast for dinner tonight with @littlmissandrea and our baes at the new Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu on the west end! ๐Ÿ˜‹ We basically tried their whole menu ๐Ÿ˜… and thought it was great! A pretty casual spot in a strip mall, with quick service, affordable prices, and tasty dishes! Welcome to the neighbourhood, Nara. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป
