Interested in surprising your dog with original toys and treats? BarkBox is the most popular monthly subscription box service for dogs. Each month’s delivery comes packed with fun goodies dogs love. The October BarkBox was filled with frights and delights, just in time for Halloween! In addition to 2 crazy fun dog toys and 3 super tasty dog treats, the BarkBox also included a whole bunch of trick or treat cards for handing out to all our favorite pups in the neighborhood they can get a FREE BarkBox of goodies, too.

We hope you’ll stay for our monthly BarkBox review, but if you’re just here for the BarkBox coupon code, scroll straight down to the end and find out how to snag a FREE BarkBox with any order of 1 month or longer!

Daisy’s been getting her BarkBox deliveries for several years now, and it’s still something we always look forward to! Each month we show you what toys and treats are inside that month’s BarkBox, and how the total value of the individual items compares to the price of a monthly subscription.

Be aware that each BarkBox subscription is customized for your dog’s size and allergies, so individual items will vary. Here’s what we got in our October Halloween-Themed BarkBox:

October BarkBox Dog Toys

We got one trick and one treat with this month’s BarkBox toys. A “scary” vacuum cleaner character and a “sweet” candy toy. Both are large, colorful and built to last!

Count Vacuula Dog Toy ($10 retail value) Part of the Household Horrors collection of toys designed exclusively for BarkBox. Stuffed with squeakers, this toy is only slightly quieter than the real thing… but it is double the fun!

Barkzooka Bubblegum Dog Toy ($12 retail value) It won’t stick to fur, but with the hidden spiky ball core (bonus toy!) that keeps playtime going, you will be stuck with the toy for oodles of time.


October BarkBox Dog Treats

Etta Says! Crunchy Duck Stick ($4 retail value) This one is a Daisy FAVORITE…it’s really the only repeat we’ve ever gotten in all the years of getting BarkBox and we wouldn’t complain if we got one every time! I break off smaller pieces of this from time to time rather than give her the whole thing at once.

Spooky Snacks Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Made in the USA without any weird dyes or fillers, these all-natural treats have nothing spooky about them at all. They have cheese in them, which is exactly what Daisy would hope for most if she went trick-or-treating in real life.

Zombie Crunch Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These are super crunchy pork strips. So crunchy in fact, that I could hear Daisy eating one from the other room. She’s not usually a loud eater. I like the size of these strips, since I usually restrict the amount of meat treats she gets. They’re perfectly portioned and all-natural.

As usual, this BarkBox included some added touches that really help to make the experience a special one. The paper that came in the box had cartoons on it, and the info card not only explained the Household Horrors theme, but the flip side also had a fun activity of opening to see who is inside each window on the haunted house.

As I mentioned, it also came with perforated “candy bars” which are individual cards to hand out so our dog pals can also get a BarkBox of their own.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $42 worth of dog toys and treats if you were to purchase them all separately. That’s a great value when you consider that subscription prices start at $21/month with free US shipping. In addition to saving money, we also love the WOW-factor and excitement of getting a new delivery of surprises each month. It’s a chance to discover new dog treats and toys that we might not have known about otherwise.
