Everyone loves receiving gifts in the post and Flash is no different! He’s such a fan of opening the post that we’ve had to start keeping him away from the front door as if he gets there first sometimes we don’t even get a look in on what’s inside the package (think champagne strawberry truffles! Sob!). So when we were asked if we’d like to try a package all for him, we jumped at the chance.
Flash got the Valentines box and it was filled with some lovely bits. He got some super tasty treats in the form of these cute little heart shaped treats, chew balls and jerky treat, as well as an adorable blanket toy and a heart shaped squeaky toy, as well as some ear cleaning buds.
The jerky lasted about 14 seconds. He was opening the packet before he’d even got it out of the box. If I’d not intercepted him he might have eaten it, wrapper and all! The heart shaped treats are great training aids – Flash loves them so actually does what you say for them and there are loads in the little box too! And the chew balls went down well with him too! But most food does…….he’s a little pig at heart – it’s where the curly tail comes from!
The other bits were a bit hit and miss though – he loves the squeaky toy but we have to keep it out of sight when we’re not around as he’s been known to rip plastic toys like that apart in seconds, and the soft blanket with the teddy on has to have the same fate – again – soft toys do not last long…….but he does like them both. The ear cleaners though are not for us…..we have one very strong willed (and physically strong) dog who will not let you near his ears, eyes or mouth unless it’s he’s in pain (the vet had to call in 2 helpers to put eye drops in once, as he’s that adamant he won’t be messed with!).
We asked for a small dog box, but maybe next time we’d try a medium box as I think the stuff we got was a bit soft for him – or maybe if there was an option to have a ‘strong chewer’ box that would be better, but on the whole it’s a great idea and it’d be great, if you have the spare cash, to get new treats and toys through the post for your pooch! Flash certainly liked being the centre of the posting attention for once!
