Fings For Fido - A box that keeps doggies happy

Hello everyone,

Happy Friday!

 Yesterday I received a *Fings For Fido (FFF) dog box that was very kindly sent to Alfie from the lovely doggies and their owners at Fingsforfido.com.
Fings for Fido is a service for your dogs that provides either a one off box or you can sign up to a monthly subscription. There are also speciality boxes to choose from as well which would make great Birthday boxes for your pooches.The monthly subscription fee is £23.99 which includes free p&p and you can buy it here. I really like how you fill in details of your pooch and so you will receive items that will be of interest and use to them. If you are just wanting a one-off box, you can purchase one for £29.99 from here.

I love how all correspondence is from the owner's dogs. Me and Alfie heard from Red dog and Lola dog. I think this makes the company incredibly unique and adds personality.
Inside the boxes that are tailored to the size and breed of your dog, you receive a mixture of toys and treats. Alfie will be one years old in May and is a small to medium sized dog because of his model-like super long legs. The box that as sent to us was customised to meet his needs.

Usually in boxes you will receive a mixture of toys, hypo-allergenic treats, gadgets, training aids, grooming aids or hand made biscuits. Fings For Fido researched what dogs actually want and need and work with the best companies to provide the items. They source their items from different suppliers and brands so they aren't restricted by choice. They can choose the best items that they give the 'wag' to.

As soon as this box was delivered, Alfie was so excited and seemed to realise that it was for him. He poked his nose through the side of the box and he was left peering through the French door windows at me whilst I photographed the items outside on the decking! As soon as I finished, I opened the doors and Alfie spotted the toy duck and ran!





The items arrived in a cardboard box which had bright orange shredding to protect the items. This little card was included inside the box so that you have the details to hand and can keep for reference.



After lifting the orange shredding out this is what we found inside. Alfie was as excited as I am opening up a beauty box! He did not hesitate in running off with the duck and then his curiosity got the better of him and he returned to see what else was included. Here are all of the items that were inside. The toys are excellent quality and even though we've only had them for a couple of days, I can already tell that they are extremely durable.


I like how they included this Dogs today magazine for the humans to read // Here is Alfie's favourite item from the box. It's a soft toy with rope attached to chew on and includes a squeaker inside which Alfie chews on incessantly and loves! // The favourite squeaky rope duck toy.



These Coachies training treats are the perfect size for rewarding. Alfie found them to be extremely tasty and so did one of my cats who wanted one // The Hoops La Hoop is great for when we take Alfie on a walk or to throw it up the garden. He loves retrieving it but needs some encouragement and training to drop it! Luckily the Coachie's treats will come in very handy.


This toy springs and has a squeaker. Alfie like to pull at it and it must feel nice on his gums/ teeth when he's biting it.


Look at the cute little dog on the other side of the business card // On the middle picture you can see that Alfie loves shredding paper. It went everywhere and I had to get the vaccum out! // In this last photo, Alfie is relaxing with this favourite toy from the box.

So overall , a big Waggs up from Alfie and me. I love how you can get a box of great quality goodies of variety for your doggy that keeps them entertained and feeling special.

Love Laura & Alfie xoxo
