It kind of depends on your definition of "worth the money" honestly. The value of what you get in the box is generally about double what you pay for the month (or at least all the boxes I got were). That said, I'm not typically someone who spends $30 a month on dog treats and toys, so for me, it wasn't worth it. If you find a deal on Groupon, it's worth giving it a try at least. I wouldn't pay full price for it, and cancelled as soon as my deal was up. Cancellation was very easy, no hassle. I don't think you can skip months, but you can easily sign back up if you change your mind.
