Win a Halloween bundle box for your dog … that’s right, a fun box of enrichment toys and treats for your pup, all Halloween themed. It’s one of the clever combinations from a clearly clever company: SodaPup. (affiliate link)
SodaPup offers brightly coloured dog lick mats, slow feeder trays, and chewable treat dispensers, all made in the USA from durable rubber or nylon and designed for moderate to active canine chewers. We received a Halloween bundle box of SodaPup merchandise to review from the company after admiring their products at the SuperZoo pet tradeshow recently.
What was my dog’s response to her enrichment toys?
My dog Victoria loved her Sodapup Halloween bundle box – I did too – and the timing was perfect: it’s her birthday! My half Cocker Spaniel half Springer Spaniel is now three years old. Enrichment toys were on her birthday wishlist.
Admittedly, I realized only this year that my dog is destined to celebrate pumpkin spice or Halloween-themed birthdays for the rest of her days. But that’s fine by me. She’s my first four-footed family member whose birthday I know for certain. Finding her was a process in 2020 when it was challenging to find pups. (Check how I found my dog).
As I opened my dog’s SodaPup Dogtastic Halloween bundle box, she was more than interested – she was anxious, in fact, to see what was beneath the neatly folded tissue paper. The bundle box is packed with care, like a boutique store purchase. All this thoughtful packaging impressed me, but not my dog. She wanted what was inside, specifically the Jack-o-lantern-shaped orange rubber treat dispenser chew toy (affiliate link).

Rubber treat dispenser
Yes, the Sodapup orange pumpkin treat dispenser is shaped like a ball – my dog’s favourite thing in the world – and she ran off with the toy before I could get the tag off. This enrichment toy is designed to be filled (like a Kong) with peanut butter or other treats to keep the dog busy, and the company offers other shapes in many people-appealing colours including the extremely popular yellow or green flowerpot (affiliate link).
I first used the treat dispenser as a chew holder, pushing a billy stick-like chew through the small hole in the bottom and out the top of the rubber toy. It kept my dog busy for a while, long enough for me to write content for dogtrotting.net uninterrupted.
Also, it’s true the rubber is strong – there wasn’t even a tooth mark after vigorous chewing. The company even stands by its durability claim with a 30-day replacement guarantee.
emat Zombie enrichment mat for licking
Next: the Zombie emat for licking (affiliate link) was new for my dog. Truthfully, I haven’t used a lick mat with my dog before because I find them a little gross. But a lot about dogs is a little gross. And remember, it is her birthday, and finding a new experience for a dog whose life is a party of dog parks, daycare, waterparks, and basically non-stop fun is challenging.
So, the lick mat was her new third birthday experience. I covered her SodaPup zombie mat with peanut butter to see what she’d do. The results? She licked it – in two stages. However, she didn’t lick it empty but left just enough for me to clean. Fortunately, SodaPup emats are made from durable BPA-free food grade rubber and are dishwasher safe on the top rack.
The SodaPup Halloween bundle box contains the following:
- A zombie lick mat
- A pumpkin rubber chew toy and treat dispenser
- A vampire bat durable nylon chew toy (affiliate link)
- One bag of Dogtastic pumpkin chewies
- One bag of Dogtastic chicken and veggie chewies
