BarkBox Review + Coupon: Secrets of the Rainfurrest

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

Daisy and I are back with a new BarkBox review and this one is WILD! Each month’s theme is different, and this month the BarkBox theme is Secrets of the Rainfurrest, with tasty treats and silly critters from the tropical jungle.

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 $40-$50 worth of dog toys and treats in each month’s BarkBox, for as low as $21/month including free shipping for US and Canada. Read on to see what we thought of this month’s BarkBox.

Daisy gets the large dog box which is shown in 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, code WOOFWOOFMAMA will get you a FREE extra month added to any order of 1-month or more at BarkBox.com/woofwoofmama.

Note that this is the Classic BarkBox edition which usually includes plush toys. If your dog is a real toy destroyer then check out the BarkBox Super Chewer edition instead.

BarkBox subscription prices start at $21/month and shipping is free for US and Canada. Most toys are Bark exclusives and all treats are made in the US or Canada (we’ve seen some lamb treats from New Zealand and we’re ok with that!)

Here’s a look at what was in the August 2018 Classic BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately at the BarkShop:

August BarkBox Dog Toys

Monkey C Monkey Chew Dog Toy ($16 retail value) This silly monkey dog toy is filled with a spiky ball covered in plush and long, shreddable fur for pups who love to let it rip! Limbs feature Crazy Crinkle for extra sound effects dogs love. The spiky ball is also like an extra bonus toy that we can keep around after the plush parts of the toy are gone.

Mutta Morphing Butterfly Dog Toy ($16 retail value) This is one of the MOST unique and exciting toys we’ve received because inside the tearable mesh cocoon lives a very furry butterfly that’s stuffed with a spiky tube squeaker. Wings and antennae are filled with crinkle for more fun sound effects!

The tags on the BarkBox toys do a great job of describing the features of each toy so you know what to expect as soon as you receive your BarkBox.

Here’s how the butterfly dog toy looked emerging from the cocoon. Super cute, right?!

August BarkBox Dog Treats

Etta Says! Duck Stick Dog Chew ($3 retail value) We will never turn down the chance to get our paws on these crunchy meat sticks from Etta Says! I mention it almost every time, these are one of our favorite things! 7 inches of tasty goodness. I usually break them in half so that they last longer.

Bark of the Wild Trout and Vegetable Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Soft and chewy treats are nice because they are easy to break into smaller pieces when I want to use them as training treats. Fish is one of Daisy’s favorites so these are a BIG hit!

Bark of the Wild Pork and Vegetable Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These are from the same line as the trout treats but with pork as the protein instead. I love the packaging of BarkBox treats as they are always cute enough for gifting and are very informative for pet parents concerned about what we feed our fur kids.

We were really happy with this month’s BarkBox goodies, but know that if you every receive a toy or treat that doesn’t make you happy or that isn’t suitable for your dog, 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 $51 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. And the BarkBox toys are really Instagram-worthy, making them the perfect photo props in addition to some amazing dog toys. Daisy in NOT in the mood for photos and just wants to go play with her new toys!

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

The folks that make BarkBox, the top dog subscription box service around, have designed a special subscription especially for dogs who need stronger dog toys and longer lasting chews. It’s called Super Chewer and it’s a monthly delivery customized for your dog’s size and food allergies. Sizes are: “Small but Mighty” for  up to 20 pound dogs, “Middle Weight” 20-50 pounds, “Large and in Charge” for dogs 50+ pounds).

Shipping is free for US and Canada, and every box comes with FREE TOY REPLACEMENT and a satisfaction guarantee on both the treats and toys.

If you’d like to try the Super Chewer BarkBox for your dog, we’ve got 2 special offers for you!

  • Use this link and BarkBox coupon code WOOFWOOFMAMA to get a FREE extra month added to any plan of 1 month or longer. The longer subscriptions work out to a lower per month price, but the monthly plan is the most flexible if you are afraid of commitment.

Every Super Chewer BarkBox includes $50+ worth of dog stuff:

  • 2 Extremely durable dog toys (plus free toy replacement)
  • 2 Full-size bags of natural dog treats (made in USA)
  • 2 long-lasting meat chews (made in USA)
  • Free Shipping (US/Canada)
  • Satisfaction Guarantee (Scout’s Honor)

Every month’s Super Chewer BarkBox has a different theme, and this month’s theme is the comic book adventure: BARK vs. Toxicritters.

Here’s a look at what was in the July Super Chewer BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately at the BarkShop:

July Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Treats
  • Super Clucks! Chicken Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These single source dog treats are made in Canada of 100% freeze dried chicken. If your dog is like Daisy and avoids chicken, not to worry. You can specify allergies and preferences when you create or edit your dog’s profile so you only get the stuff your dog can eat. BarkBox accidentally sent us these, but caught their mistake and shipped out some fish treats as a replacement without us even having to ask.
  • DROOL! Pork Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These wide pork strip treats definitely have some chew but aren’t completely hard. They’re made with pork, cheese, peas and a few other all-natural ingredients that are sure to make your dog drool.
  • Pork Hide Roll Dog Chew ($4 retail value) Made of 100% human-grade all-natural pork hide from the fine folks at Sawmill Creek Smokehouse in South Carolina, USA. No chemicals, byproducts or additives.
  • Butcher’s Block Bones Roasted Beef Steak ($4 retail value) This “steak” is actually 100% beef lung from USDA Beef, Born and Raised in the USA. It comes with the warning not to use on carpets, so this is an “outside treat” and I know from past experience that lung treats are one of Daisy’s favorites!

July Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Toys
  • CHEW! Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This dog toy is as indestructible as a superhero and super big, too. Do NOT drop it on your foot. It’s made of material similar to a Nylabone making it perfect for your favorite toy destroyer.
  • Sledgehog Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This nubby evil villain is made of tough rubber. It’s got a squeaker inside but it’s so tough that getting it to squeak is quite a challenge. I’ve got such bad aim that I’m afraid I’ll break something if I throw it, but we have fun playing fetch by rolling it and hiding it.

BarkBox Super Chewer Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox Super Chewer edition had $52 worth of dog toys, treats and chews if you were to purchase them all separately. That’s makes a subscription a real bargain when you consider that plans starts as low as $29/month with free US and Canadian shipping included. Visit BarkBox.com to check it out for yourself.

BarkBox Review + Coupon Prom Edition 2018

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

We were a little behind schedule in letting Daisy open her June BarkBox but it was worth the wait. The theme was Squeakhearts Under the Stars and it was truly prom-tastic, complete with prom-posal, corsage, and more fun surprises!

In case you aren’t already familiar with BarkBox, it’s the most popular monthly subscription box for dogs and each box is customized for your dog’s size and food allergies.

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

Daisy gets the large dog box which is shown here, but whatever size your dog is, they will get the same number of toys and treats…usually 2 fun dog toys, 3 full-size bags of treats and 1 tasty chew. Often there are additional surprises and goodies thrown to go along with the monthly theme.

Note that this is the Classic BarkBox edition which usually includes plush toys. If your dog is a real toy destroyer then check out the BarkBox Super Chewer edition instead.

BarkBox subscription prices start at $21/month and shipping is free for US and Canada. Most toys are Bark exclusives and all treats are made in the US or Canada (we’ve seen some lamb treats from New Zealand and we’re ok with that!)

Here’s a look at what was in the June 2018 Classic BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately at the BarkShop:

June BarkBox Dog Treats

Baaallroom Dance Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These lamb and duck dog treats are great for dogs with a sensitive tummy (like Daisy) and are super tasty (according to Daisy). No wheat, corn or soy. Fun short sticks make them the right size for stuffing in puzzle toys.

Fish Platter Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Made with salmon and whitefish; soft and chewy. I like how tiny these dog treats are which makes them perfect as pocket treats while training or out for walks. This full-size bag will last a LONG time since we can dole them out in such small portions!

Deluxe Lamb Chew Stick for Dogs ($4 retail value) Etta Says! is one of our favorite brands for meat chews and this crunchy stick doesn’t disappoint. 7″ of tasty lamb.

June BarkBox Dog Toys

Andrew the Hopeful Nerd Dog Toy ($14 retail value) Adorable prom-posal and super fun 17″ dog toy. BarkBox has started labeling most of their dog toys with info on the features (hidden spikey ball toy inside, rope material, etc.)

Click n’Rip Camera Dog Toy ($16 retail value) It’s been a while since I’ve seen a disposable camera but this one has an extra special surprise BONUS TOY hidden inside!

The info card that came in this month’s BarkBox had perforated tear-out prom accessories: a bow tie and a rose corsage. Just what every dog needs for those perfect prom pics!

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $50 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.
