BarkBox Review + Coupon: Small Dog Subscription Box March 2017

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

Calling all small dogs! We know you love toys and treats just as much as the big dogs do, and there’s a dog box subscription just for you. It’s BarkBox, a monthly pet subscription box that’s customized for your dog’s size. This month’s BarkBox theme is Bento & Blossoms.

In case you didn’t know, the National Cherry Blossom Festival happens in DC each Spring and commemorates the gift of Japanese cherry trees from the Mayor of Tokyo to the people of the US.

March BarkBox for Small Dogs

This month’s BarkBox had 3 full-size treats and 2 fun dog toys. Here’s a quick rundown of what was in the BarkBox for Small Dogs…keep in mind that items will vary based on how you customize your BarkBox subscription for your dog’s size and allergies.

  • Hello Ducky! Dog Treats (Retail Value $8) Made in the USA, 100% natural duck flavored dog treats. Made with potato flour, these treats are corn, soy, grain, and gluten free.
  • Mr. Porkle Pork Teriyaki Treat (Retail Value $6) Made especially for Bark & Co from the folks at Mountain Country Foods in Okeene, Ohio, these soft and chewy dog treats are grain-free and baked with a sweet and savory flavor that your pup will love.
  • Etta Says! Buffalo Chew (Retail Value $3) The crunchy chew sticks from Etta Says! are some of Daisy’s favorite treats and this one is no exception. 7″ long, 100% American made and sourced. Easy to break into small pieces for smaller dogs or just to make it last longer.

  • Sydney’s Salmon Nigiri (Retail Value $8) This sushi dog toy is one of our favorites! Super cute and squeaky. Daisy is always begging when I get sushi, and now she can have her very own.
  • Get That Geta (Retail Value $10) Inspired by the traditional sandals of feudal Japan, which were designed to elevate the foot in an effort avoid ruining kimonos in puddles. We love it because it’s got crinkle material and a squeaker inside, and the ballistic nylon so it’s great for tug, fetch and chewing!

If you were to purchase all of these dog toys and treats separately, the retail value totals $35. That’s a pretty great value considering that BarkBox plans start as low as $21 per month including FREE Shipping. In addition to being a smart way to save on dog toys and treats, we also love the surprise factor and how creative the different theme is each month. We always end up discovering new pet brands and products that we wouldn’t have known about or found on our own.

BarkBox makes a great gift, and we’ve sent them to Daisy’s cousin and a few of her other dog pals too!

It’s officially the first day of Spring and perfect timing for this month’s BarkBox theme: Bento & Blossoms. Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates spring in Washington DC, the gift of the cherry blossom trees, and the friendship between the people of the United States and Japan. Just as folks eagerly await the first blossoms of Spring, dogs across the US and Canada eagerly await their monthly BarkBox of toys, treats and surprises.

This week we will be reviewing the March BarkBox for Large Dogs, Small Dogs and the special SuperChewer BarkBox. We’ll do a separate post for each, starting with Daisy’s BarkBox for Large Dogs. Keep in mind that because each BarkBox subscription is customized for your dog’s size and food allergies, items may vary but overall theme and value should be the same.

Here’s what was inside the March BarkBox for Large Dogs.

March BarkBox for Large Dogs

  • Pork Chop Treats (Retail Value $8) Locally-sourced pork delights mixed with blueberries, sweet potato, beans, yucca root and other wholesome ingredients.
  • Tea Snacks Shareable Dog Treats (Retail Value $8) Wheat-free Granola Clusters made from human-grade ingredients.
  • Full Pig Ear (Retail Value $5) All-natural and long-lasting dog chew from the folks at Sawmill Creek.

  • Rubber Bamboo Stick Dog Toy (Retail Value $14) Super-durable stick toy from JW Pets, perfect for fetch, as a chew toy, and also can be stuffed with treats.
  • Ninja Star Food-Dispensing Puzzle Toy (Retail Value $15) Made by the folks at Busy Buddy, this toy randomly pops out treat pieces as your pup plays. The squeaker makes it extra fun!

As you can see, this bento box for dogs is packed with high-value toys and treats. The retail value this month’s Large Dog BarkBox adds up to $50.

I ordered using our Amazon Echo, but this also works if you have an Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV, or Fire tablet device.

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

If you love cute animals and spend any time on the internet, then you’ve probably seen Goats of Anarchy. If not, stop what you are doing and watch this adorable video to see the story of one of the rescue goats in her duck costume (she wears it like a dog wears a ThunderShirt, to calm her anxiety):

Too cute, right?!? Anyway, there’s a new Goats of Anarchy book being released in a few days and it’s available to order NOW. It should ship out on March 15th, but may sell out quickly, as popular internet sensations are known to do. As with all Amazon book orders, it comes with the pre-release guarantee. Order now and if the price decreases before it is released, you only pay the lower price.

Order: Goats of Anarchy: One Woman’s Quest to Save the World One Goat At A Time. Hardcover; March 15, 2017.

From the publisher: Get ready to party—the goats are back in town! Based on the popular Instagram account, Goats of Anarchy takes you on a tour of Leanne’s goat rescue farm, a place where special-needs goats can heal, grow, and butt heads to their hearts’ content.

Join Pocket, Ella, Chibs, Lyla, Prospect and Polly–the goat who took the Internet by storm with her adorable duck costume–as they rumble, snuggle, pig out, dress up, and even teach you a few goat yoga moves to loosen your haunches. Whether they’re learning to walk or just romping around the farm, these horned and hooved heartbreakers will have you grinning ear to ear as they chew the scenery—literally!

About the author: Also known as “Goat Mama,” Leanne Lauricella is the founder of Goats of Anarchy, a non-profit organization that aims to rescue and rehabilitate baby goats with special needs. As a former city girl with a passion and compassion for animals, Leanne has developed a wildly popular and Webby award-winning Instagram account and continues to provide goats a happy and loving forever home at her sanctuary. When she left New York City for the wilds of New Jersey in 2011, Leanne Lauricella knew nothing about animal sanctuaries. She started her Instagram account, @goatsofanarchy, shortly after getting her first two goats, Jax and Opie. Today, Leanne’s Instagram has over 400,000 followers, and is the winner of the 2016 People’s Voice Webby Award for Animal-Based Social Media Account. [Read more…]
