Hawaii Shipping-Friendly Websites for Dog Products
Here is a list of my favorite websites and online vendors who provide great dog products at reasonable prices with either FREE or reasonably priced shipping:
TIP: Since online companies ship via US Mail or UPS or a combination of both, use your physical address AND your PO Box number like this:
Mrs. Hawaii Dog Lover
68-1234 Sample Road
12345 (without the “PO Box”)
Lucky We Live, Hawaii 96738
By doing this, you will cover all your bases, and you will receive your shipment no matter if they use US Mail or UPS! 🙂
(No matter how much you buy, their shipping charge to Hawaii via UPS and/or US Mail is $9.99. Make sure to put down your physical address with just your post office number (without the “PO Box”) on the 2nd address line): Product line includes Kong, Nylabone, Ark Naturals, Bach Flower Remedies (homeopathic), Chuckit, Ethical Pet Products (My Labs love their “Skineez” stuffing-free squirrels), Greenies, Happy Tails, Halo, Kong, Kyjen, Nature’s Miracle, Newman’s Own, Nylabone, Petstages, Vetri-Science, Zukes, and many others. We also purchase a lot of our health food products through Vitacost: Protein powder, BioAstin Astaxanthin, gluten free pasta and chips, canned goods, herbs, tea, shampoo, soap, lotion, safe cleaning products. Compare their prices to what we pay in the store, and you’ll see why.
2) AMAZON with PRIME membership (Annual membership: $79)
If you order a lot of things online, I highly recommend purchasing the Prime membership from Amazon for $79 per year, which allows even us in Hawaii to receive many products with FREE shipping. I’ve ordered dog bowls, collars, dog food, dog treats and toys, LARGE dog beds, as well as many other non pet-related products. Well worth the money. Plus, you also receive instant streaming of movies and TV shows and instant access to Kindle books.
3) BARK BOX
This is a fun online vendor that provides monthly shipments of four or more dog-related items (all-natural treats, bones, toys, hygiene products, and gadgets for as little as $19/month (for a 12-month subscription) + $5/month for shipping to Hawaii. You pick the appropriate size products for your dog (Small, Medium, Large). I have been receiving the Bark Box since 2012 and love seeing what new toys are out there since we seem so limited with our pet stores here. All of the treats are made in the USA, too! TIP: Look around the internet for a coupon code by Googling “Coupon code barkbox.”
Dog-related products (treats, toys, hygiene products, leashes, and even dog beds!) that are updated daily (Sign up for their emails!) and ship for low cost to your US Mail address. They are sometimes shipped Parcel Post, so they may take 4 to 6 weeks delivery, but they are worth the wait. I typically order one item a week, so I have a steady flow of fun dog stuff come in with occasional personal “thank you” messages from the Doggyloot crew. Nice touch! I order my Bullysticks from them…Ten 6-inch low-odor Bullysticks for $18. They are thicker and less expensive than the Bullysticks I have bought from other pet stores and online vendors.
