July 4th is just around the corner, and we wanted to remind pet parents that more time spent outdoors poses an added risk of pets escaping or getting lost. July 1st is ID Your Pet Day, which is timely since more pets go missing due to fireworks during the 4th of July celebrations than during any other time of the year.

ASPCA has provided us with some key safety tips to help you safeguard your pet this summer.

BarkBox Super Chewer Review May 2017 Cowdog Edition

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

If your dog needs an extra challenge or if their dog toys never seem to last, then you’ll want to know about a BarkBox service that’s designed especially for them. It’s BarkBox Super Chewer, the monthly subscription box for dogs with the longest lasting chews and the most durable dog toys around. It’s NOT just for big dogs either…each membership is customized for your dog’s size and allergies, too.

Just like with the standard BarkBox subscription, the Super Chewer BarkBox has a different theme each month, with a creative selection of dog toys, treats and surprises. This month’s theme is straight out of an old Western film, and packed full with 2 heavy-duty dog toys plus 4 different dog treats. A GREAT deal considering box prices start at $29/month with FREE US shipping!

Here’s what was in the May Super Chewer BarkBox, along with retail value of each item if purchased separately:

BarkBox Super Chewer Dog Toys

Orbee Silver Double Tuff Dog Toy ($16 retail value) This super strong Planet Dog toy is eco-friendly and built to last. It’s bouncy and can be stuffed with your pup’s favorite foods for long-lasting fun.

PetSafe Treat Holding Cactus ($14 retail value) We LOVE the unique design of this toy! It’s made of BPA-free rubber material and has nubby spikes and ridges just like a real cactus. It has spots for stuffing treats, to keep your dog challenged and working for their reward.

BarkBox Super Chewer Dog Treats and Chews

Happy Howie’s Beef Burger Dog Chew ($5 retail value) Nothing better than the taste of real slow-cooked ground beef, and that’s what’s in this dog treat!

Butcher’s Block Bones Roasted Beef Steak ($4 retail value) This “steak” is actually 100% beef lung from USDA Beef, Born and Raised in the USA. It comes with the warning not to use on carpets, so we are saving this one for later but I know from past experience that lung treats are one of Daisy’s favorites!

Yum Yum on the Range Beef Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These natural chews are made in Canada and are literally strips of 100% beef. Enough said.

Cowboy Cut Steak Treats for Dogs ($10 retail value) These beef dog treats are made in the USA with NO wheat, corn or soy, Just natural goodness including rolled oats, rosemary and olive oil. They are a great size for pocket treats, and for stuffing into the cactus toy.

You might have noticed that all four of the treats in this box are beef. Usually, each BarkBox contains more variety, and I’ve seen what some of Daisy’s friends received in their box so I’m thinking it was just a fluke. We don’t mind all beef, but wanted to make sure you know that if you subscribe to BarkBox and ever receive a toy or treat you are unhappy with, BarkBox will replace it for free…no questions asked. It’s part of their fantastic customer service and 100% satisfaction guarantee!

As I mentioned earlier, the BarkBox Super Chewer subscription prices start at $29/month. A great value considering that the total retail value of items in this box is $57. It will vary from month to month but we’ve always been pleased. In addition to the quality and originality of the BarkBox toys and treats, we love the surprise of a new theme each month.

May BarkBox Review + Coupon: Wild Wild Woof

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

BarkBox is the number 1 monthly subscription box service for dogs, and Daisy’s been getting the Large Dog BarkBox for several years now. Each month we show you what toys and treats are inside that month’s BarkBox, and how the total value of the individual items compares to the price of a monthly subscription. Be aware that each BarkBox subscription is customized for your dog’s size and allergies, so individual items will vary.

Saddle up, pups, because this month’s BarkBox theme was all about the Wild West!

The Cowboy BarkBox came with 2 large squeaky dog toys and 3 full-size treats. Daisy got plush squeaky toys in this box but if your dog is a bit tough on toys, you can specify “heavy chewer” in your subscription profile and your dog will receive tougher toys. This is NOT to be confused with the Super Chewer BarkBox which is a different subscription for dogs. We’ll be reviewing that box separately.

May BarkBox Dog Toys

Rattle Snake Battle Snake ($12 retail value) This guy uncoils for extra long fun. He’s got squeakers AND a rattling tail. He’s cuter than the average snake and much friendlier!

Biff the Spiffy Buffalo ($14 retail value) This toy is made especially for the BarkBox company and is designed for medium to large dogs. It’s squeaky and fun for tossing, tugging and cuddling. Daisy thinks buffalo sounds DELICIOUS and is licking her chops at the idea of having a whole one all to herself!

May BarkBox Dog Treats

Pork and Beans Dog Treats ($6 retail value) These all-natural dog treats are made in the USA by Lucky Dog with NO wheat, soy or corn. And contrary to the name, they do NOT contain beans. The ingredients are: pork, barley, oat, brown rice syrup, maple syrup, and natural smoke flavor. They are a soft and chewy treat.

My Doggy Cheesy Cookies Dog Treats ($10 retail value) These all-natural dog treats are also made in the USA. They’ve got cheddar and parmesan cheese along with molasses, ginger and rye. The cookies are soft-baked and chewy…just like a cookie should be!

Pork Roll Dog Chew ($4 retail value) This 8″ dog treat is 100% all-natural pork and is sourced and made in the USA by Sawmill Creek Smokehouse. We’re saving this one for a special occasion…from experience, we know that these dog chews are long-lasting and super satisfying!

In addition to multiple treats and toys, BarkBox usually includes a fun extra to go along with each monthly theme. Last month was 90’s themed stickers that we thought were totally rad!

This month, the box included a card with a cutout so that you can create a “wanted poster” of your dog. I couldn’t decide what crime Daisy is wanted for but I’m pretty sure it has to do with being TOO cute! She’s also guilty of begging but what dog isn’t?!? She even looks a little guilty in the photo.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $46 worth of toys and treats if you were to purchase them all separately. A great value when you consider that subscription prices start at $21/month.

Even better, get a FREE BARKBOX added to any plan with coupon code WOOFWOOFMAMA when you order a 1, 6, or 12-month BarkBox subscription using this link.
