Shopping can be a bigger hassle than ever these days, and that's why we love subscription boxes for dogs. Once a month, a box full of treats and toys will arrive at your door, like magic. There are also options for one-time purchases if you just want to try it out without the monthly commitment.
Dog subscription boxes will keep your pup's tail wagging, and they're also thoughtful gifts for other pet parents in your life. We reviewed all the subscription boxes in Canada and narrowed it down to seven that have the best products and best overall experience.
