BarkBox Review + Coupon: The Fine Arfs Edition

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

We’re back with a new BarkBox review! If you’re wondering what BarkBox is all about, it’s the most popular dog subscription box services around, and one of our favorite things. Each BarkBox is customized for your dog’s size as well as any food allergies, and shipping is free in the US and Canada. Every month’s BarkBox has an original theme with 2 cute toys and 3 tasty treats.

If you’re already familiar and just looking for a coupon, you can get a FREE extra month added to any order of 1-month or more when you use BarkBox coupon code WOOFWOOFMAMA at BarkBox.com. Or read on to learn more!

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.

The March BarkBox theme was The Academy of Fine Arfs and truly ia a work of art! In addition to the tasty treats, there’s something extra special about one of the toys, that Daisy can really relate to. Keep reading to find out what it is, if you haven’t guessed already!

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

March BarkBox Dog Toys

Paint Tube Tug Dog Toy ($12 retail value) This cute dog toy is filled with fluff and topped with t-shirt rope making it perfect for a game of tug.  It also has a grunt squeaker inside, making it extra artsy fartsy!

Vincent Van Squirrel Dog Toy ($16 retail value) This is a toy designed for heavy chewers, which is a FREE toy upgrade BarkBox will give you if you let them know you like the classic box but need a bit stronger toys for your dog. We think its EXTRA special because like Vincent, Daisy only has one ear! Now all she needs is her own paintbrush.

 

 

March BarkBox Dog Treats

Painter’s Pallet Treats ($8 retail value) Pork, blueberries and carrots make these treats colorfully delicious. You can actually see the little flecks of fruit and veggie in these crunchy dog treats.

Starry Bites Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These all-natural dog treats are made in the USA with chicken as the number one ingredient.

Woof Stix 2-Pack ($7 retail value) These all beef dog chew sticks are 11 inches each and can be easily broken into smaller pieces. Even though Daisy would LOVE to eat the whole thing at once, we always break off smaller pieces with meat chews like this. Not only does it make them last days longer, but I feel that moderation is best when it comes to these ultra meaty treats!

 

BarkBox Guarantee

One of the great things about BarkBox is their customer service and mission to make every dog a happy dog. As a BarkBox customer, if you ever receive a toy or treat that doesn’t meet your standards, or that your dog just isn’t crazy about, you can contact BarkBox and they will send a free replacement. It’s part of their Scout’s Honor satisfaction guarantee, and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the service we’ve received in the 6 or so years we’ve been subscribers!

 

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 a great 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.
