If we're being honest, our pets are usually the most cherished members of our households—just ask that family member who "didn't want a pet" and now snuggles with them every single night. So, it's natural to want to spoil them silly, and pet subscription boxes provide a convenient way to do just that. Now you can get a plethora of treats, toys, accessories, and more delivered right to your home for dogs and cats of all sizes at every stage of life. Of course, it's just as fun to treat ourselves from time to time, and some pet subscriptions contain gifts for both you and your fur baby. So, let's just say your pet won't be the only one waiting for the mailman when these subscription boxes arrive.

Best Overall Subscription: BarkBox
If you love a good theme and showering your dog with toys, treats, and more, BarkBox will be your new favorite delivery. This monthly subscription box delivers two toys, two all-natural treat bags, and a chew, all relating to the designated theme. Previous themes have included "Lick or Treat," "Sit Stay Spa Day," and "Squeakaway Camp," to name a few. Simply answer a few questions about your dog (think size, breed (if applicable), their birthday, etc.), and BarkBox will curate a special box just for them. You can also customize the box should your dog prefer treats to toys or vice versa (or if they have any allergies). Of course, if your dog is like mine and can chew through anything in five minutes or less, BarkBox also offers a Super Chewer box with extra-tough toys and chews. The standard box starts at $23 per box, and the Super Chewer is $30 per box, with free shipping anywhere in the 48 contiguous states ($8 for Hawaii and Alaska). To ensure the best experience, if your dog doesn't like a toy—or chews through "the unchewable"—Barkbox will replace the toy with a different one, as part of its 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.

Best for Puppies Subscription: PupBox
PupBox is a pet subscription box designed to suit every stage of puppyhood (and a little after that because dogs deserve spoiling at all ages). The "stages" are: puppy (newborn to six months), young pup (seven to 18 months), grown pup (one and a half to six years), and, coming in 2022, senior pup (seven years and up). Each box includes toys, treats, chews, and more geared toward that stage of life. For example, the puppy box includes plush toys, teething chews, and training guides, whereas the young pup box focuses on puzzle toys for brain development and modified training information. Grown pup boxes come with toys and treats for adult dogs, and the senior pup box will include softer toys and chews, as well as wellness products. Whatever their age, your dog will be showered with treats, toys, and accessories for as low as $29 per box (when you sign up for an annual subscription). You can also opt for six-month, three-month, or monthly subscriptions for $32, $34, and $39 per box, respectively. All boxes ship free. Save 50 percent off your first box with the code PUMPKIN.

Best Subscription for Small Dogs: Tiny Tails Box
