Are you looking forward to the Summer Olympics? We sure are and thanks to this month’s super cute BarkBox theme, Daisy can get in on the Gold Medal action, too! BarkBox is the #1 subscription box service for dogs for a reason. In addition to having the most unique toys and treats…often they are made exclusively for the company, the BarkBox folks are also super creative and add fun extras to make each box extra special. This month the box included a pop out medal for Daisy to wear.

As you may already know, each BarkBox is customized for your dog’s size as well as for allergies. You can also specify that your dog is a Heavy Chewer and they will include toys that are especially heavy duty! BarkBox starts as low as $20/month and is a fantastic value over buying individual items. It varies but this month our BarkBox had a retail value of $38.

Here’s what was in the July BarkBox for Daisy:

We Review the NEW Dyson V6 Top Dog Cordless Vacuum for Pet Homes

Dyson V6 Top Dog

Thanks to the folks over at Dyson, we got our paws on their brand new Dyson V6 Top Dog handheld vacuum cleaner. It’s just launched for sale, but they sent it to us early so that we could test it out and share our experiences with you!

#DogHairEverywhere

Pet parents know that the cleaning battle against pet hair is real, and not to be taken lightly. Keeping the fuzz factor under control takes constant vigilance and the best tools you can find. Even for a short-haired dog, Daisy sure does shed a lot, and every time I turn around there is a new pile of fur on some piece of furniture, throw pillow, rug or floor.

Although we vacuum a few times a week, and I run our Roomba almost daily (especially helpful for under the beds, night stands and dresser, I’m constantly finding NEW Daisy hair wherever I go. I could make a Daisy clone with the amount of fur she sheds in an average week! Having a cordless handheld pet vacuum has really been a game changer. No more having to pull out the upright vac and attachments for small jobs…I just grab my Dyson handheld, pull the trigger, and zap the spot.

Being cordless makes it super fast and hassle-free to clean up a corner, her dog bed, and our patio furniture. And being so easy means I’m much more likely to clean up little messes before they turn into big ones!

I’m impressed with how much time I’m saving on routine chores like vacuuming Daisy’s dog bed. Doing it weekly, it now only takes about 2-3 minutes to really remove all the fur she’s shed since the last time I did it. The speed is due to how powerful the suction is as well as the design of the mini motorized tool. The bin holds more than other hand vacs I’ve tried, which is also a time saver because there’s no stopping to empty it or clear the filter. Here’s a shot with a full bin from doing her dog bed today.

Dyson V6 Full Capacity

For clean hands and convenience, the vacuum is designed with a quick release button to empty the bin while holding it over the trash. I also really like that the filter is washable and meant to last a lifetime. That saves on waste and extra costs since I’ll never need to buy replacement filters.
