We’re back with another sneak peek at what’s inside the BarkBox for big dogs this month. Got a small dog or not sure which size to get? Stay tuned because we’ll be showing you the small dog BarkBox in the next day or so for comparison.

As many of you already know, each month’s BarkBox has a special theme and all the dog toys, treats and surprises are based on that theme. This month’s BarkBox is Sniffin’ Safari and it’s full of excitement, fun and adventure…as every safari should be. The photo above is the paper in the BarkBox, so as you can see, their people put all kinds of creativity and attention to detail into every box. That’s part of what sets BarkBox apart, the theme and exclusive items that you can’t find elsewhere.

This BarkBox came packed with 3 full-sized dog treats and 2 very cute and fun dog toys. Here’s a breakdown of the retail value of each item if purchased separately. Keep in mind that your BarkBox will be customized for your dog’s size and allergies so items may vary.

Big Dog Treats in February BarkBox
  • Banana Bacon Safari Snacks ($6 Retail Value) Rich in Vitamin C antioxidants, these snacks are as nutritious as they are delicious. They’re made by the folks at The Lazy Dog Cookie Co, who take canine nutrition super-seriously. Created without any wheat, corn, soy, meat, egg, or preservatives, they’re 100% good stuff and great for sensitive stomachs.
  • Charlie’s Heart of Cheesiness Sticks (Retail Value $8) Grain free and made in the USA, these soft treats are made without any preservatives, colorings or fillers. You can feel good about giving your dog rich, creamy taste of 100% real cheese.
  • Venison Ear ($4 Retail Value) 100% natural chew from Superior Farms Pet Provisions. A fun and tasty treat for dogs!

Big Dog Toys in February BarkBox
  • Slitherin’ Steve ($14 Retail Value) Snakes are known to be sneaky, but this one is up front with what it offers: a good time for canines. It may not hiss, but it’s stacked with squeakers, which dogs prefer anyway! It’s stuffing-free and sturdily-stitched from durable ballistic nylon so it’s sure to be super tough.
  • Leopard Tail ($16 Retail Value) The folks at Hyper Pet made this interactive toy that simulates a dog’s natural prey drive. The tail moves on its own and releases zany noises, creating an exciting and stimulating playtime for your pup. The on and off switch makes it easy to start a new play session or to put the toy aside for later. (Batteries not included)

The total retail value of this month’s BarkBox for Large Dogs is $48, making is a GREAT deal since subscriptions start as low as $21/month.  And, FREE Shipping is included on all US orders. We can’t wait to show you what was in the box for small dogs this month, so be sure to stay tuned!

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review #SmartCamWoof #Giveaway

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Pet parents know that the fur kids are part of the family, so when you’re at work or away and they’re home alone, you naturally want to check up on them. We’ve been testing out the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro, which allows pets and their people to stay connected.

It’s got super easy setup and a free app for Android or iOS, that lets you monitor your home and pets from any location. Advanced features for keeping an eye on your furry friends include 128 degree ultra-wide angle security coverage, 1080p full HD live video streaming, advanced motion detection, night vision and more.

With all these features, Samsung has really covered what most people need in a home WiFi camera. The price is nice, at $159, with lots of customer reviews and ratings at both BestBuy.com and Amazon. We love the two-way talk feature, although Daisy hasn’t figured out how to talk back yet! You can also use it to check-in with your human kiddos after school.

Everything you need is in the box, and I was able to get the camera up and running in about 10 minutes (it did a software security update once I connected it to WiFi). If you want, you can also get a 64GB Micro SD Memory Card which will allow you to record your video locally for long-term storage. You do need to have an existing home WiFi network set up already, which I’m guessing most of you do.

The SmartCam HD Pro also works with Samsung SmartThings and with other devices including the Amazon Echo. We got ourselves an Echo for Christmas and are loving it, but haven’t utilized it’s full capabilities yet. Anyway, here’s what’s in the box…totally not scary, and super easy to run the wireless setup using the app and your smartphone!

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Dogs love real meat chews, and find bully sticks to be especially tasty. We love buying dog treats from BestBullySticks.com because All of their products are 100% all-natural. Their Bully Sticks come from grass-fed, free-range Brazilian cattle, none of which are fed hormones or antibiotics. They also offer a wide range of Made in the USA dog chews and treats, and even vegetarian dog treats like sweet potato chews. And if you find regular bully sticks to be stinky, be sure to check out their odor-free bully sticks!

Because of their high-quality ingredients, all-natural dog treats can be a bit pricey. That’s why we always watch for a sale or coupon code to help save money, and stock up when we spot a discount.
