BarkBox Dog Subscription Box Review + Coupon: 1990’s Edition

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

In case you missed it, the April BarkBox was all about the 90’s. This dog box of goodies was full of retro treats and toys that really made us smile. Our review is based on Daisy’s large dog subscription for heavy chewers (not to be confused with the Super Chewer subscription). Since each BarkBox plan is customized for your dog’s size and other preferences, items will vary but the number of items and overall value of the box is usually the same for everyone. Here’s what was in our BarkBox this month.

BarkBox April Dog Treats

  • Joy Sticks Pork Flavored Dog Treats ($6 retail value) All-natural dog treats made in the USA with smoky pork, peas, and potato.
  • Duck Treats for Dogs ($6 retail value) Made in the USA exclusively for BarkBox, these treats include wholesome potatoes, pearled barley, and oatmeal.
  • Pig Ear Chew for Dogs ($5 retail value) This treat is sourced and made in the USA by the folks at Sawmill Creek.

 

April BarkBox Dog Toys

  • Sodapup Crazy Bounce Ball Dog Toy ($12 retail value) It’s just what the name says it it. A rubber ball and chew toy that is designed so that it bounces in crazy and unpredictable ways. It’s heavy and solid so be careful when you throw it!
  • Mix Breed Mix Tape Dog Toy and Treat Puzzle ($14 retail value) This is one of my favorites because in the 90’s we all made mix tapes and it has a fun retro feel that fits with the whole box. It’s also become one of Daisy’s favorite toys, especially when I stick pieces of the joy stick treats in it! It’s a super durable chew toy that seems built to last, even with heavy use.

BarkBox Bonus Items

In addition to amazing toys and treats, we also love that the folks at BarkBox often include bonus items that tie-in with the theme of the month. This time, we got a sheet of super cute and fun stickers. It’s added touches like this, along with the unique toys and treats that you won’t find elsewhere that make BarkBox really special.

We also count on their experts for hand-picked, high-quality treats and toys that introduce us to new pet products that we might not have tried on our own. And if there is every an item that doesn’t meet with your dog’s approval, BarkBox has a satisfaction guarantee and will replace the item with no hassles. We’ve only had to do this one in all the years Daisy has subscribed to BarkBox, but I was impressed with their customer service.

This month’s box items had a total retail value of $43. It will vary from month to month, but with plans starting as low as $21/month we find BarkBox to consistently deliver great value. Note that free shipping is included on US orders ($5 extra for Canada).

Ginormous Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Dog Toy *Daisy Favorite + HOT Deal*

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

 

Dog lovers, I just spotted one of Daisy’s favorite dog toys on sale for HALF OFF right now. It’s the Hide-A-Squirrel and Puzzle Plush Squeaking Toy for Dogs from the fine folks at Outward Hound.

It’s the Ginormous Size and the sale price is $14.99 ($15 OFF). Other sizes are also available, but this one is the best deal since it’s got the most squirrels and holes to hide them in, making the activity more exciting and challenging for your dog. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen on this dog toy favorite since we reported it on sale for $15.55 back in 2012!

This toy is very well-made, and I recommend you supervise the play with your dog. This will help keep your dog from chewing up the squirrels…it’s NOT a chew toy but an interactive puzzle toy.

The way Daisy and I play is that I show her how I stuff the squirrels in the tree trunk and then hold it out while she figures out how to find each squirrel and pull them out of their holes. Sometimes she wants to run away with one of the squirrels, so I use the opportunity to practice “Bring” and “Drop” and reward her with lots of squeaks and start the game all over again.

The squirrels are also fun for throwing in a game of fetch, and I sometimes use them for hide and seek, sticking one or two behind sofa cushions and letting her “find” them. I keep this toy put away in my office closet and she sometimes comes to nudge me and goes to the closet to show me she wants to play. I also keep her Indoor ChuckIt Set (also on sale) in the closet, too. I think these are her two favorite games because they both involve human participation and aren’t toys that are just left lying around for her to play with all the time on her own.

Anyway, as with all deals, this one can change quickly and without notice so be sure to head on over HERE if you want one. And always remember to verify the price in your online shopping cart before checking out. The deal includes FREE 2-Day Shipping for Prime Members (or free shipping with min. purchase for non-Prime shoppers).
