BarkBox 101

BarkBox is a subscription service especially for dogs. Each month, your dog receives a customized delivery of toys, treats, goodies and dog gifts, handpicked by the fine folks at BarkBox.com. Each month’s box has a unique and clever theme. You can check out some of our previous BarkBox Reviews to see photos and descriptions of past themes including: Country Fair, Summer Olympics, California and more.

BarkBox subscription rates start as low as $20/month with Free Shipping…a GREAT value compared with ordering similar items individually. And I can’t really put a price on how excited Daisy gets each month when her box arrives. Her daddy and I just love the surprises each month. BarkBox always sends us items we would never have thought to look for. Many of the toys and treats are designed and produced exclusively for BarkBox and you can only get them with either a BarkBox subscription or at the Bark Shop.

September BarkBox Review

The theme for the September BarkBox is Bark To School.  Daisy’s box included just about everything school supply a pup needs for the new semester. Keep in mind that items in boxes will vary depending on your dog’s size, allergies and other options you can customize in your BarkBox profile. Here’s a look at what was in the September BarkBox for Daisy along with the retail price if you would like to purchase items separately:

Teacher’s Pet Treats (retail value $6): It’s 2016; an apple on Teacher’s desk doesn’t cut it anymore. Earn the best seat in class with these tasty pork & apple treats, made in the USA by Treat Simple. The ingredients list is delightfully short: oat flour, pork, honey, apples, canola oil. That’s it. No wheat, no soy, no weird fillers, no goofy preservatives. Just 5 tasty ingredients.

My Doggy All-Natural Apple Duck Treats (retail value $8): These crunchy biscuits are baked in the USA by with duck, apples, and egg blended into a hearty rye flour batter.

YAk Chew (retail value $11): This Yeti Dog Chew brings a taste of the Himalayas right to your door. An all-natural dog chew made from yak and cow milk. It’s an incredibly long-lasting and tasty chew!

BarkBox Composition Notebook: each month’s BarkBox comes with a special foldout card that gives you info and tips to get the most out of your box. It will usually let you know any special hashtags to use when sharing your BarkBox photos on social media.

Chew Percent Milk Large Dog Toy (retail value $12): Even the most lactose-intolerant dog can enjoy this milk! The carton is insanely difficult to open, just like the real thing! Underneath ballistic nylon is a cube-shaped spikey squeaker, because the best milk is chewy.

Treat Dispensing Number 2 Pencil (retail value $14): With this treat dispensing rubber pencil, get your dog to do their homework instead of eating it! And there’s a very special “number 2” potty joke right on the toy, for all you poop emoji lovers…

target-halloween-pets

It might seem early but it’s time to start hunting for your pet’s Halloween costume, especially if they are picky about what they wear. Popular sizes sell out quickly so I’m starting to look now. Daisy usually needs an extra-large and doesn’t really like stuff on her head so that limits our options.

This year, I might just get her a Halloween Dog T-Shirt like this one that says: I Ate My Costume #idontdohalloween

August BarkBox 2016

The August BarkBox is a tribute to the best of things from the Golden State. The theme is California Droolin’ and once again, the folks over at BarkBox have outdone themselves with their creative selections! This month’s box included 3 fantastic treats plus 2 super cute and fun dog toys for Daisy to enjoy.

People sometimes ask me if BarkBox is worth it. We say PAWSitively YES! As usual, the total value of the items in each box is MUCH more than the subscription cost, making it a GREAT deal.

This month, our box has a retail value of $42 worth of cool dog stuff. A steal since BarkBox costs as little as $19/month with a subscription plan. The deal gets even better for new subscribers because you can get an extra month FREE with BarkBox coupon code WOOFWOOFMAMA when you sign up at BarkBox.com/woofwoofmama!

We’ll show you what was in the August BarkBox we got, but keep in mind that each box is customized for your dog’s size, allergies and whether or not they are a heavy chewer. You can email BarkBox directly if you have specific concerns about what your dog will be getting. Here’s a quick rundown of what was in this month’s BarkBox subscription box for dogs:
