January BarkBox Review + Coupon: Spa Day Edition

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

After the hectic holidays, January is a time for a focusing on wellness, self-care and some much-needed relaxation. What better way to kick of the month than with a Spa Day, which is exactly what the folks at Bark had in mind when they designed and curated this month’s BarkBox theme. Daisy and I hadn’t had a spa day in ages, so we really had fun unboxing this one! Grab your favorite scented candle, put on your coziest slippers and join us as we review this month’s BarkBox.

As with each month’s dog subscription box from BarkBox, this one included 2 fun toys inspired by the theme, plus 2 full-size bags of dog treats and a tasty meat chew. You can expect a value of $30-$40 worth of dog toys and treats in each month’s BarkBox, for as low as $21/month including Free US Shipping. Read on to see what we thought of our January BarkBox.

Daisy gets the large dog box which is shown in all our BarkBox reviews, but whatever size your dog is, they will get the same number of toys and treats in appropriate sizes. Treats are also customized based on whether you specify food allergies in your dog’s BarkBox profile.

We hope you’ll stay for our BarkBox review but if you are just here for the BarkBox coupon, promo code WOOFWOOFMAMA will get you a FREE extra month added to any order of 1-month or more at BarkBox.com/woofwoofmama.

January BarkBox Dog Toys

Shauna In The Sauna Dog Toy ($10 retail value) This adorable sheep is wrapped in a luxury terry towel and headed straight for the sauna after her spaw treatment. Spiky ball inside for extra fun at playtime.

Aro-mutt-therapy Candle Dog Toy ($10 retail value) What’s a spa day without a scented candle?!? This one is also a tug toy, with t-shirt rope as the wick.

You can really see how much thought and creativity go into the design of each BarkBox dog toys. Always super cute and unique, and the BarkBox folks never fail to surprise and delight us with something new in each month’s box. Not every dog gets the same toys in their BarkBox, so here’s a look at some of the variations.

January BarkBox Dog Treats

Swimmy Jerky Bites Salmon Dog Treats ($6 retail value) Made and sourced in the USA, and stuffed with salmon. These chewy bites are the perfect size for training or an after spa snack.

Pork Liver Crunchies ($5 retail value) Made in Canada, and 100% pork liver. Freeze dried, natural nutrition. Crisp and crunchy!

Pork Stick for Dogs ($3 retail value) Every BarkBox includes one meaty chew stick each month. This simple pork chew is made in the USA with natural ingredients including Pork, Chickpeas, Pea Flour and Coconut.

We think this month’s BarkBox was 5-Star, as every spa experience should be, but if you ever receive a toy or treat that doesn’t make you happy or that isn’t suitable for your dog, know that BarkBox will send you a FREE replacement with no questions asked. You don’t even have to send back the unwanted item. They encourage you to donate or share it, and will send you a replacement more to your dog’s liking! It’s part of their Scout’s Honor Satisfaction Guarantee that comes with every delivery.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $34 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. And WAY cheaper than a real spa day!

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. And the BarkBox toys are really Instagram-worthy, making them the perfect photo props in addition to some amazing and unique dog toys!
