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.

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…

As pet parents, it’s our job to know what to do in an emergency. Are you prepared? This month ASPCA is helping us to get prepared, with tips and information for disaster preparedness month.

None of us likes to think about bad things happening, but it’s important to take the time now to make certain that you and your furry family members have everything you need in case of a life-threatening emergency. One of the best ways to do this is to create a disaster prep safety kit with all of the necessary supplies should any type of disaster affect your community.

To help you create your home’s emergency kit and keep your pets safe, the ASPCA has provided an excellent checklist of items.

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
