Minor changes have been made to our website to better speak for what we’re all about.

Looking to conveniently deliver, via MAILbox, the informative, interactive and fun experience found when sampling treats in a local pet boutique, tha MUNCHbox hopes to offer online customers a unique way to discover, explore and shop the many healthy, simple ingredient chews, treats and bones on the market.

Feeling as though we were only showcasing pieces of a full-package, we’ve decided to tackle this issue by  adding… tha MUNCHshop!

NOW OPEN for BUSINESS, when the sample stage is complete, customers can procure single items or full size package items, directly from our website.

Lastly, we do ask that you visit tha MUNCHshop often.  We are constantly in the process of adding and/or finding new things.

What Sets Us Apart? | Product Selection!

One of our values, is simple, healthy ingredients.  If you didn’t recognize this trend during the April A-to-Z blog Challenge (we blogged about Chew, Treats + Bones), no worries, we have made a category for this topic to browse though.  You can also check out the category, Chews, Treats + Bones…Oh My!

You see, we like and understand the idea of sticking to the canine (and feline) natural diet.  Yes, we know these beautiful domestic creatures have adapted over time, but we still think the  basics are crucial and necessary.  What do we mean by that?  Well, one of the things that a canine must have in their diet is…PROTEIN!  And we don’t mean the inappropriate protein from a veggie or plant source, we mean MEAT PROTEIN!  So although a our furry companions are not able to eat fresh killed meat, straight form the forest like their ancestors, we are able to provide them with other sources of meat protein, like Chicken, beef, Fish, Lamb (etc.).

On the other hand, one of the things that is NOT a crucial and necessary dietary need for a canine (or even a feline), is CARBS…even GRAINS (processed).

“the Gastrointestinal (GI) tract of carnivores-like lions, wolves, dogs, or cats-has not adapted in a way that allows the system of these animals to contend with processed grains.  Why then are those grains major ingredients in many pet foods?”             – The Royal Treatment –

Causes of the unhealthy pet epidemic, plaguing the life span of our pets (check out SlimDoggy’s Blog post Dog Life Spans), CARBS + GRAINS (processed) will be very scarce when sniffing around tha MUNCHbox.  When we say we value simple, healthy ingredients, we mean we focus on products that are essential and beneficial to our canine (and feline) diet. As mentioned, MEAT PROTEIN is key, so you will definitely find many shapes and forms of different meat proteins (like liver, lung + hearts), amongst our products.

Did you know that wild carnivores obtain fiber from the prey they eat.  Fiber which comes from fur, nails, fins, cartilage, hooves, feathers, teeth (etc.).  Although tha MUNCHbox doesn’t have any fur or feathers in stock (at least not at the moment), we certainly have HOOVES and TENDONS.  We also have SWEET PAWTATO CHIPS, which isn’t a “wild” fiber, but one our furry companions have adapted to.

Now, we know the issue of whether or not BONES should be consumed is a touchy subject.  But, we agree with the fact that bones serve as a natural toothbrush, great for canine dental hygiene.  I’d rather offer bones to gnaw on and tendons to chew on versus spending money on a toothbrush and nasty toothpaste (or even GREENIES), that doesn’t really do the job it’s suppose to do.

So in all, will you find the typical packaged Chews, Treats and Bones sold in a pet store like Petco and PetSmart amongst tha MUNCHbox products?

As previously mentioned, we focus on simple, healthy ingredient…limited ingredient Chews, Treats and Bones.  We like these products to be pure, all natural, slow roasted and dehydrated.  We don’t like carbs, processed grains, non-meat proteins, fillers, additives, or non-natural preservatives.

If you are all about yummy, healthy Chews, Treats and Bones for your canine (some of our products are feline approved), Check-Out thaMUNCHbox.com!

 

GOT HOOVES?!

HV470

A perfect chew for the small to medium sized dog, tha Hoof is renowned for its ability to NOT be easily consumed like a Bully Stick.  Although hooves are SUPER STINKY like a bully Stick (some even say worst), this hardened cartilage…keratin…toe nail, is a wonderful source of natural protein and is great for gnawing to promote dental health.  Way better than a bone which may cause splintering concerns, hoofs soften when wet with drool, making them digestible.  Even better, our hoofs come empty, which means you are more than welcome to add yummy fillings, like Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter or even Non-Fat Greek Yogurt.   You can also boil these bad boyz in Chik’n or Beef Broth to enhance the flavor!

As with any Chew, MODERATION is KEY!  To experience a hoof for your dog, as well as, other tasty treats, check-out thaMUNCHbox.com!

Yöghund | tha Dog Ice Cream!

YWith Summer being just around the corner (Hopefully), I like the idea of being able to peel open a nourishing, Organic Blueburry Yöghund for Ballou to happily lick.  Although we like to think of this treat as “tha Dog Ice Cream,” it’s actually yogurt and a whole lot better and healthier for the overall well-being of our canine friends.

A recognized Power Food, Yogurt is High in Calcium and Protein, containing active bacteria that can act as a probiotic; good for a dog’s Digestive and Immune system. What makes Yöghund so Dog-Gone-Good is the fact that this specially made, frozen treat for dogs adds billions of beneficial live cultures, 6 additional strains per cup, to the current yogurt base.

Note: Typically, dogs are unable to easily digest lactose (diary products), however, Yogurt is an exception, containing lactose fighting bacteria

Recommended to give to your dog daily, below is a list of Conditions where Your dog might benefit from Yöghund:

Wonder Nuggets | BAM!tastic!

This morning I came across the “word” BAM!tastic on a blog about Tumeric (which is good for your dog) and thought, this “word” is perfect for the Mighty, Bite-Size Wonder Nuggets.

Ideal for training or for the dog/dog parent who prefers a softer treat, these dainty tid-bits have base ingredients of Rolled Oats, Vegetable Glycerin and Barley Flour, with the option of choosing Beef + Apples or Unsalted Peanut Butter + Cane Molasses.  Locally MADE and SOURCED in Boston, Massachusetts, by the Good Folks at Polka Dog Bakery, not only are these treats easy on the stomach, but they are also easy on the nose. Smelling BAM!tastic, if you are tempted, please…feel free to try the Peanut Butter Wonder Nuggets; they taste like Ginger Snaps!

MUNCH love!
