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.

Balance by bistroMD: Healthy Meals Delivered To Your Door (Because Pet Parents Should Eat Well Too!)

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

Ever feel like you take better care of your fur kids than you do of yourself? You’re not alone! Whether you are too busy, or just tired of adulting, home food delivery has become a popular alternative to cooking. Woof Woof Papa and I love to cook but often get tired of meal planning, shopping and the prep-work that goes into making healthy meals. And our schedules mean that we don’t always have time to cook and eat at the same time. Sometimes it just seems easier to grab takeout or order delivery, and that isn’t the healthiest or most economical way to eat.

We were recently invited to try the meals from Balance by bistroMD. It’s the first meal delivery service to offer chef-prepared meals a-la-carte, without the constraint of minimums, memberships, or recurring orders. The top-rated diet delivery and weight loss program, bistroMD, created this subscription-free service to provide healthy meals with convenience and flexibility.

Balance by bistroMD fits health-conscious lifestyles, whether you’re trying to lose weight, adhere to a specialty diet such as gluten free, or just want to eat healthy without the struggle. When we went to their website to place our first order, we were impressed with the wide variety of over 100 meals and snacks available, and prices start at just $5.95.

The ordering process is super easy…the only hard part was deciding which meals to get, because they all looked so good! To narrow down the choices, you can filter meals by diet type, including Low Sodium, Heart Healthy, Gluten Free, Diabetic Meals and other options. We ordered a few breakfast items, because we are trying to do better at not skipping breakfast. And we also ordered a variety of lunches and dinners, too. Everything arrived within a few days, shipped in an insulated cooler packed with dry ice. Even though the box sat out on our porch in the South Florida heat for most of the morning, all the meals were still frozen when I unpacked everything.

In addition to doing the cooking and delivering your meals straight to your door, the folks at Balance by bistroMD also send the instructions and info you need to make the most of your food delivery. For example, although you can microwave the meals straight from the freezer, they recommend you move your upcoming day of meals to the fridge the night before to thaw for more even reheating. They also suggest that you place your entree on a plate because visualization is an important part of dining.

This was my attempt to plate the Ham and Cheese Frittata. It came with a side of peaches with a tasty whole grain granola crumble. I added avocado slices because I cannot go a day without eating avocado! Although I can see the logic in their suggestion to plate the meals to make the dining experience more enjoyable, most times we opted for convenience over aesthetics, and just ate our meals straight out of the BPA-free microwavable trays they came in. Less dishes to wash!

Overall, we were impressed with our order and happy to have a week of no meal planning or prep. The nice thing about the service is that there is no commitment or subscription required. You can order when you feel like you need a break from cooking, or need a little extra help with eating healthy. It’s also a thoughtful gift for a friend or family member, and would be great as a Housewarming present or Mother’s Day gift, too!
