Inside the Hounds Chew Box – January 2021

A new month means a new Hounds Chew Box packed full of exciting treats to get your dogs’ tail wagging.

The successful subscription, launched by Hounds in 2018, changes every month, and the contents are always a surprise!

The monthly must-have tends to feature a couple of items from their popular pick and mix table, as well as some packaged treats.

Here are some reviews from previous months:

What’s in the Hounds Chew Box? August 2020

Hounds Chew Box September 2020 – what’s inside?

All of the treats included in the box are suitable for puppies and dogs over 12 weeks old – but be reminded to always supervise your pet with chews and treats.

The Hounds Chew Box costs £8.49 as a one-off purchase, but if you subscribe to the monthly deliveries, you can bag it for £8.07 a month – saving you 5%!

Each month, the value of the box is around £10, so you’re saving more than if you purchased separately too. The January Chew Box has a value of £10.90, so well over the price paid.

Here’s what’s in the Hounds Chew Box this January:

  • The Innocent Hound Venison Sausages
  • Pawtato Vegan Dog Chews
  • Adios roll of compostable poo bags
  • Lamb ear
  • Duck neck
  • Rabbit ear with hair

The Innocent Hound Venison sausage with chopped apple

Retailing at £4 per pack, The Innocent Hound Venison sausage is the most expensive item in the box. The Scamps love the brand, and even used their Christmas Cake mix over the festive season, which went down a treat.

The sausages can be served whole or cut into smaller pieces, and are made with single protein with venison, potato, vegetable glycerine, sweet potato and minerals.

Pawtato Sticks With Spinach And Kale

The Benevo Pawtato Sticks are a delicious crunchy low fat treat for dogs made with sweet potato and rice. This particular pack is the spinach and kale filling, but there are other variants also available.

A pack typically costs £2.50, and they can either be fed as a reward or as part of a pets diet. Phoebe and Frank have enjoyed them on top of some natural yoghurt on their kibble.

Adios Compostable Dog Poo Bag Single Roll

Pink poo bags! These Adios waste bags come in at £1.30 for a roll, and are totally zero waste and compostable. They’re quite a big bag, and are made from cornstarch, which breaks down in three to six months.

You get 15 bags per roll – the only thing is I wish they had handles, but they are still big enough to tie using the corners. The brand also donate 1 per cent to charities that help clean up oceans.

From the treat table:

Antos duck neck (£1.10), JR rabbit ear with hair (£1) and lamb ear (£1)

The Scamps absolutely love a natural chew, and they’re longer lasting than typical treats. The duck neck can be cut or broken in half so that Phoebe and Frank don’t have to fight over who gets what, too.


I’ve previously written about ears from the Hounds treat table, and lamb ad rabbit cropped up in there. Lamb ears are better than pigs ears if your pooch has a bit of a sensitive tummy, whereas the rabbit ears with hair are a natural de-wormer.
