Upcoming Discovery Kit topics
July - August: Emotions
Discover your dog's emotional range and learn how to interpret their feelings.
Did you know? Happy dogs laugh. It's a soft, non-rhythmic panting sound.
September - October: Naughty by nature
Many of the naughty things that our dogs do are perfectly normal, acceptable behaviors to them. We'll explore why dogs do them and how to let your dog have fun being a dog without trashing your house.
Did you know? There is no consensus on why dogs roll in stinky stuff. A few top theories are that they are masking their scent for hunting, that they are spreading the scent of a resource to help others find it, or that it's just for fun.
November - December: Hunting
Unlike cats, most dogs no longer have the entire set of hunting skills needed to catch and eat prey. Let's explore each of these skills and look at how they shaped domestication, breed differences, and our dogs' behavior today.

Tell us what you've always wanted to know about dogs, and we will try to answer your questions in upcoming Discovery Kits.
Why do Discovery Kits ship every other month?
Shipping Discovery Kits every other month gives us more time to craft high quality experiences for you and your dog. It also allows us to select premium products with a higher value that would make monthly deliveries cost-prohibitive for many of our customers.
Plus, having 2 months with each kit gives you and your dog more time to immerse yourselves in and to fit it in around your busy life without having unused kits piling up.
