"what are your pets really doing when you’re not at home with this fun box set of The Secret Life of Pets 1 & 2."

This is just one minor observation but the sentence makes it sound like you're not sitting at home with the box set on your lap. Better might be:
"See what your pets are really doing when you're not at home by watching this fun box set..." You could specify further with "by watching the DVDs in this fun box set".

Not sure if it should be "box set" or "boxed set".

I agree with the sentence change. It sounded odd when I read it, too.

In Ame, both "box set" and "boxed set" are used, and apparently both are acceptable.
