California Droolin’ BarkBox Review + Coupon Code for a FREE BarkBox

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

August BarkBox 2016

The August BarkBox is a tribute to the best of things from the Golden State. The theme is California Droolin’ and once again, the folks over at BarkBox have outdone themselves with their creative selections! This month’s box included 3 fantastic treats plus 2 super cute and fun dog toys for Daisy to enjoy.

People sometimes ask me if BarkBox is worth it. We say PAWSitively YES! As usual, the total value of the items in each box is MUCH more than the subscription cost, making it a GREAT deal.

This month, our box has a retail value of $42 worth of cool dog stuff. A steal since BarkBox costs as little as $19/month with a subscription plan. The deal gets even better for new subscribers because you can get an extra month FREE with BarkBox coupon code WOOFWOOFMAMA when you sign up at BarkBox.com/woofwoofmama!

We’ll show you what was in the August BarkBox we got, but keep in mind that each box is customized for your dog’s size, allergies and whether or not they are a heavy chewer. You can email BarkBox directly if you have specific concerns about what your dog will be getting. Here’s a quick rundown of what was in this month’s BarkBox subscription box for dogs:

Movers and Shakers: What Pet Parents Are Buying On Amazon Right Now

Pet Parents Amazon Movers Shakers

I sometimes get asked how I find out about which pet products are trending or gaining in popularity. One way is to check the Amazon Movers and Shakers list, which is updated hourly and shows which items are rising in popularity and sales ranking. This can be useful for pet parents to discover new pet products, find some pet gift ideas, and also to find newly discounted pet items since rising sales rank can often mean a price reduction which triggers a buying frenzy…and also frequently indicated an increase in positive customer reviews as well!

Now that you know WHY to check the list, here are some of the top pet supplies people are buying on Amazon right now for their dogs, cats and other pets!

  • Starter pack of Earth Rated Green Poop Bag Dispenser with Bags. This is our favorite brand of poop bags so I’m not surprised to see how popular it is with dog lovers. The dispenser is adjustable to fit any leash, carrier handle or tote bag and comes with lavender scented bags…because picking up poop stinks! Love the handy hook on the back for hands-free carrying of your used poop bag til you can find a proper place to dispose of it. Dispenser fits all standard size rolls and is super easy to refill. Current Price: $3.99

  • A 2-Pack of Thermal Self-Heating Mat Pads for Cats, Dogs, Puppies and other Small Pets. It may seem like summer will never end, but it will turn cold sooner than you think. Now is a great time to snag a deal on these self-heating pet beds to keep the fur kids cozy all winter long! Absorbs, holds, and reflects your pet’s body heat, and insulates them from cold floors. Current Price: $18.97

  • Zoo Med Reptile Basking Spot Lamp – 2 Bulb Value Pack. This is the #1 Reptile Basking Spot Lamp on the market, according to the manufacturer. These lights provide the heat and UVA light that reptiles enjoy and need to help them thermo-regulate. Designed for use 10-12 hours a day, because you reptile deserves their time basking in the spotlight! Current Price: $9.31

  • Marvin the Moose KONG Cozie Dog Squeaky Toy. KONG makes some of the most popular and well-made dog toys around. This Cozie Squeaky Toy comes in 10 cute characters and is made with minimal filling for less mess. Extra tough, yet soft and cuddly…these are super sweet! Current Price: $4.99

  • 1 Gallon of Nature’s Miracle Advanced Formula Pet Stain & Odor Remover. As pet parents, we know that accidents can happen, so it’s always a good idea to be prepared with the proper cleaning supplies to tackle the job. Nature’s Miracle is the best pet stain cleaner we’ve found and we always keep a spray bottle handy, just in case. This advance oxygen infused, bio-enzymatic formula deeply penetrates, cleans and removes pet pheromones and destroys odors on contact to prevent re-soiling in the area after cleaning. A little goes a long way. Dries quickly, too. Current Price: $19.57
