That's right, the big day is almost upon us. We are so excited and we hope you are too!
Some of the amazing brands that will feature in our subscription boxes. Every month, your box will contain 5-6 carefully selected products for your furry friend.
The last few weeks...
Have been super busy; just the way we like it!
We want to make sure that all of the products that we supply are of the best quality, and that they meet all of our requirements.
The treats must contain 100% natural ingredients and of course get past our chief product tester Winston! We have also been edging closer to launch day and we are nearly there. Check out the details below.
Were not joking...

Launch Day Discount
Even dogs love a bargain...
Keep an eye on your inbox over the next few days as we will be sending out a discount code to use when we launch.
This week has brought been a mixed bag with some of us getting just enough snow to have fun and frolics, and others being stuck inside because it is just wayyy-too cold.
Check out some tips below how to keep your buddies paws in tip top condition during this cold weather and more on our instagram competition to find a new product tester!
Pawtection is key...
Dogs paws, although super tough, need some TLC during this extreme weather. The cold, combined with the salt and grit that is used to make sure that we don't slip over can reek havoc on their paws by causing cracks in their pads; not unlike us getting dry skin in winter.
In addition, the grit and antifreeze that is great for pedestrians and cars is sometimes poisonous to our pooches, so its always best to do a quick check and a wipe when you get home! There are some amazing solutions though - to dog booties (warning, hilarity may ensure..) to balms and protectors. We even have a solution that you may already have in your kitchen cupboard!
While they look silly and your dog may react like you have attached lava to their feet, they provide the ultimate protection against the elements. We recommend the ones above by vibrant fellow. Breathable and adjustable, they stay on well. Just.
Natural Paw Balms
There are some incredible natural paw balms on the market, but our favourites are the paw soother by the natural dog company & the nose, skin & paw balm by the Dog&I (we have it on good authority that this is good for dry human skin too!) Paw Soother is an organic, vegan, 100% natural herbal-based blend of butters and special plant oils while The Dog&I balm is made with hemp, lavender and peppermint oils.
You might think we are Coco-nutty...
But coconut oil is an amazing natural paw protector. in fact - its pretty much incredible in all areas. Rub it on your dogs paws as a soothing balm, feed them a teaspoon a day to help with coat and skin issues or applied directly to the the Laurie acid within in has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties that promoting skin healing. Magic.
There are just so many treats & toys to test that we have decided to run a photo contest to find a new product test to help out. Take a picture of your furry friend enjoying their favourite toy or treat, and head on over to @collarclubsub on instagram to enter!

So we’ve had a busy week and we bet you have too! Between Valentine's Day, Pancake Day & Chinese New Year, we have managed to confirm packaging designs, and sort out a prize for our launch day giveaway. Read on for full details below...
Box clever - Sustainable Packaging
We have a bit of a thing here for packaging; not only does it need to be practical, it needs to be beautiful & sustainable too! We always wanted to ensure there was as little waste as possible, and make sure everything was recyclable, and we think we have cracked it. Pictures to follow in next weeks update.
Both the box and the filling can go straight into your cardboard recycling or, even better, be repurposed as storage for doggy related goodies.
After all this work we decided to take a break and indulge in some pancakes...
It’s the year of the dog
On Friday it was Chinese New Year, and this time it’s the year of the dog. The symbol of the dog represents loyalty, sincerity, independence and decisiveness.. I’m sure we all have had experience with the last two traits at some stage!
Pup Friendly Pancakes
Chief PT managed to get in on the action as well, with a pup friendly pancake - Fried using no butter (You could use a teeny bit of coconut oil if you fancy) with banana and a little dollop of peanut butter, yum.
Keep your eyes peeled...
Coming up next time is details on the giveaway prizes that we have in store for our launch date giveaway.
