Dog moms and dads, we’ve got the full scoop on what was in this month’s BarkBox dog subscription box, AND a coupon so you and your dog can try it too!
In case you hadn’t heard, BarkBox is a monthly delivery of goodies, toys and treats, all customized for your dog’s size as well as any food allergies. You can choose the length of your subscription, and shipping is FREE for the US and Canada.
Every month’s BarkBox has an original theme with 2 cute dog toys and 2 full-size bags of tasty dog treats and 1 yummy chew.
The May BarkBox theme was Age of the Furaoh, a journey back to a time when dogs ruled Ancient Egypt.
Here’s a look at what was in the May 2018 Classic BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately:
May BarkBox Dog Toys
The Ferocious Pharaoh ($16 retail value) This toy is designed to be destroyed. It’s got some fluff inside, and a hidden mummy spiky ball bonus toy just waiting to be discovered! We haven’t gotten to the inside yet, but I can’t wait til Daisy decides to rip him open! Here’s a photo from BarkBox in case you’re interested.
Slug Bug Beetle Tug ($16 retail value) At 15″ long, this tug toy is BIG! It’s got a full body squeaker, 2 smaller squeakers and crinkle material, too. It’s perfect for a game of fetch and tug, or for supervised play (like a game of hide-the-toy).
BarkBox sent along a reminder card in this month’s BarkBox about dog toy safety, along with info on how to contact them with questions or concerns. We love the thoughtful details like this.
May BarkBox Dog Treats
PB & Bacon Sandwiches Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Made in the USA by Blissful Biscuit. All-natural ingredients including peanut butter and bacon make these dog treats the perfect blend of sweet and savory.
The Treat Pyramid Dog Treats ($8 retail value) A BarkBox exclusive, these dog cookies give your dog the taste of three proteins in each bite. Made in the USA with lamb, chicken and pork. Daisy has in her BarkBox profile that she doesn’t eat chicken, and before our box even arrived I got an email from them letting me know they’d accidentally sent these treats instead of no-chicken treats which they were sending out right away. We love their amazing customer service people, and this is just another example of how they go above and beyond to keep every person and pup happy!
Plato Pet Treats Thinkers Salmon Stick ($6 retail value) Every month’s box includes one tasty dog chew but this month we really hit the jackpot with TWO salmon sticks from one of our favorite US pet treat brands! Although Daisy would love to eat the whole thing at once, I like to break off pieces to help with portion control and make each stick last longer.
This month’s box also included a fun extra surprise. It’s a royal collar designed to be cut out of the wrapping paper in the box, along with stickers so you can customize it for your dog. Super fun and cute!
BarkBox Cost and Value
By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $54 worth of dog toys and treats if you were to purchase them all separately.
That’s an amazing value when you consider that subscription prices start at $21/month with free US and Canadian 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.
