Any savvy golden retriever can tell you: human clubs are overrated. Book of the month club, food of the month club, puzzle of the month club, cigar of the month club – all of these gift clubs are so boring. Where are all the squeaky toys? The fire hydrants? The treats?
Instead of joining another “of the month club” which will bore you silly after the first three months, join a club you and your dog will actually look forward to. Join an “of the month club” for dogs.
Listed below are the best gift clubs for dogs the internet has to offer.
Dog Treat of the Month Club
Rover, Fido, and Spot are in agreement on this one: the excitement and enjoyment that comes from one full pound of delicious, fresh-baked dog treats each month belongs in one of those MasterCard “priceless” commercials. With a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, and membership options for 3, 6, or 12 months, there’s no risk involved in this club. The only thing you might want to be careful about when it comes to the treats provided by the Dog Treat of the Month Club is that the humans in your household don’t start eating them.

For a homemade version of the Dog Treat of the Month, visit Pawty Time Treats. They deliver a 1-pound box of gourmet treats each month and a peanut butter bone on your pup’s birthday. (more information)
Dog Toy of the Month Club
Your dog might still chase the mailman once you join the Give a Dog a Toy club, but it won’t be for the same reasons she used to chase him. It will be because she knows the mailman has something extremely fun and possibly squeaky in that brown box he’s carrying.
Give a Dog a Toy makes it easy to get a new toy your dog(s) will enjoy enjoy every single month. You can choose from Chew & Squeak, Fetch & Fun, or a mixture of both. You also choose what level you want to join at – Bronze, Silver, or Gold. Bronze toys retail at approximately $9.99; silver toys retail at $15.99; and gold toys retail at $19.99. Once you’ve chosen your level, you choose a 3, 6, or 12 month membership. Give a Dog a Toy guarantees you’ll never receive the same dog toy twice. (more information)
Lucky Dog Gift of the Month Club
If you and your chocolate lab can’t decide between treats or toys, why not get the best of both worlds? Lucky Dog Gift of the Month Club sends both treats and toys every single month. To give you an example of what sorts of packages your best friend might receive, one month’s gift package included the Busy Buddy Kibble Nibble Treat Dispenser along with Wheat Free Liver Biscotti Treats. Another month came with a 12” chew toy and Honey & Oat Bark Bars. (more information)
Kool Treat of the Month Club
Kool Dog Cafe goes a step further than most dog treat clubs: you’ll get Kool Treats each month, but you’ll also get a special, free annual birthday cake for your furry friend. Seasonal treats might include red-and-green dog cookies for December; shamrocks for March (perfect for your Irish setter!); and surfboards in June. (more information)
Bone of the Month Club
Have you ever had a long day of dangerous kids on bicycles, smirking cats lurking just out of reach, and squirrels that seem to taunt from every tree? On days like that, even a walk and a tennis ball don’t seem to satisfy. All you really want is to curl up on your dog bed with a blankey and a good bone.
The Bone of the Month Club offered by ManyWags.com gives you a choice of a half-pound or small bag of bones each month for 3, 6, or 12 months at a time. With seasonal flavors along with classic bone varieties, your dog will definitely breathe a sigh of satisfaction as he munches on these bones. (more information)
In you’re not sure, the translation of your dog’s whine as she reads over your shoulder right now says: “What are we waiting for? Sign up already!” Everyone knows that ain’t nobody happy until the puppy is happy, so gift your dog with an “of the month club” that your four-legged pal will like all year long.
