Online Dog Subscription Services and Why You Should be Using One

Over the last couple of years, online subscription services have sky-rocketed in popularity...and it's not hard to see why.  They are convenient, save time, offer unique products, and in many cases, save money.  While some believe that they are just a fad, recent research published by shows that they are fulfilling a greater need for consumers, at least in the pet food sector.

3 out of 10 owners purchase dry dog food weekly.  That's sure a lot of trips to the store!  It's no wonder that many pup-parents are turning to online solutions to fulfill all of their doggy-related needs.  Dog owners want fresh food for their dog and those huge, ugly bags of food take up quite a bit of space.

So why else are monthly dog subscription services a slam-dunk for owners? Let's take a look at 5 reasons...
Dog Toy & Treat Box Delivery

1. You shouldn't stock up.

In order to ensure that your dog's food is fresh and safe to eat, they should consume the full package within a few weeks of opening it. That means you shouldn't be feeding from that 30 lb. bag of dog food that has been open for two months.

Subscription services help fix this issue by delivering fresh food to your front door so that you don't need to buy in bulk.  Here at SnapWag, we also send multiple small food packages (7.5 lb. bags) to keep food fresh for your pup.  With some services offering free shipping, there's no reason not to order online!

2. Time.  

You have a busy lifestyle.  If you're like us, you want to spend less time searching for dog food and more time with your pup.  So why do you continue to waste time at the pet store when you can order online?

Subscription dog food services deliver to your front door, saving you the time and effort of shopping.  At SnapWag, we understand the value of purchasing the correct food, toys, and treats for dogs, which is why we also customize our boxes to meet your pup's unique preferences.  It's like having your own personal shopper!


3. Peace-of-Mind and Consistency. 

Contrary to popular belief, dog food labels are not written in a different language. Research shows that owners spend way too much time on the dog food aisle, often trying to make sense of what they are reading.  It shouldn't take a veterinary degree to read a label.

With a subscription service like SnapWag, you know what you are feeding your dog every time.  It's super premium, grain-free food manufactured in small batches right here in the USA.  Let's face it, we could all use a little consistency in our lives.


4. Your Back Will Thank You.  

If you have ever had to lift dog food bags, you know what we're talking about.  They're awkward, heavy, and difficult to carry.  You don't exactly look like a ballerina while doing it, either.

With subscription services, the mailman gets to do all of the lifting!  Don't worry, they're used to the heavy boxes.  All you have to do is open your front door and slide the package inside.


5. It's the Future.  

Every moment with your dog is special.  Subscription services such as SnapWag allow owners to spend their time with their pups, instead of researching and shopping.

That doesn't mean all people are comfortable with someone else choosing what their dog consumes.  That's where services like SnapWag step in.  We learn what your dog needs, and send a customized box with the perfect products that fit your dog's unique personality.
