We’re back with this month’s Super Chewer Box review! We’re still stuck at home during the Coronavirus shutdown, but the pawtastic dog toys, treats and chews in month’s Super Chewer box have definitely kept us busy, active and occupied! The theme of this month’s Super Chewer Box is World Chomps, and even though the 2020 Summer Olympic Games were postponed due to the pandemic, this box brings the best of games and sports to you and your dog.

Here’s a look at what was in this month’s Super Chewer Box along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately:

July Super Chewer Box Dog Toys

Take a Lap Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This durable dog toy is also a treat puzzle. Made with rubber, this toy has an opening at each end so you can fill it with treats. Daisy definitely gets a workout rolling this thing for a lap or two trying to get the treats out. I even stuffed it with part of the chew stick that was included in this month’s box. That really too some time to retrieve and kept her busy while I was working.

Archewy Target Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This toy is seriously heavy and best for outdoor throwing so you don’t break anything in the house! It’s a nylon arrow with a rubber bullseye all in one. Best of all, it’s got a natural smoke scent.

July Super Chewer Box Dog Treats

Perfect Ten Pork Dog Treats ($5 retail value) Real pork is the first ingredient in these soft and chewy dog treats. They’ve also got pea powder and flaxseed as wholesome ingredients in these chompion snacks.

Lamb Laurels Dog Treats ($5 retail value) Daisy loves lamb, so these are a real winner! We love receiving dog treats that are made in the USA with wholesome ingredients we can recognize when we check the label.

Pork Stick Dog Chew Treat ($3 retail value) A satisfying and long-lasting dog treat. It’s tough but can be broken into pieces to make it last longer.

Peanut Butter and Carob Chew Stick Dog Treat ($3 retail value) We always love the Super Chewer chew sticks, and peanut butter carob is one of our favorite recipes.

Just like with the toys, every Super Chewer treat comes with a happiness guarantee. If you or your dog don’t love something, let them know and Super Chewer will send you something else and help you to personalize your dog’s box for future deliveries.

Super Chewer Box Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox Super Chewer edition had $44 worth of dog toys, treats and chews if you were to purchase them all separately. That makes the subscription a real bargain when you consider that plans starts as low as $29/month with free US shipping included.

Plus, these dog toys are designed to be extra durable, for extreme chewers and toy destroyers. And they are original toys designed exclusively for the Bark company, so you can’t buy them anywhere else!

BarkBox Review + Coupon: Summer Olympics Edition

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

Our July BarkBox has arrived and that means it’s time for this month’s BarkBox review, where Daisy and I give you an insider’s look at all the dog toys, treats and surprises that come with the world’s most popular dog subscription box.

This month’s BarkBox is dedicated to the 2020 Summer Olympics that were supposed to happen this July-August in Tokyo but have been postponed til 2021 due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. This is the first time in history that the Summer Olympic Games have been postponed rather than cancelled. Although we are very sad about the postponement, we are super happy that BarkBox decided to keep the Olympics theme!

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 July 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.

July BarkBox Dog Toys

Rocco Socco Dog Toy ($10 retail value) This soft and squeaky raccoon dog toy flips inside out and turns into a soccer ball. Perfect for a game of fetch, and adorable in his olympic athletic attire!

Retrieve the Gold Dog Toy ($10 retail value) A dog toy that can also be worn as a medal. It’s got an adorable emoji face, giant disc squeaker and nylon strap with velcro that detaches easily for safety and convenience. And in this game, everyone gets a participation medal, regardless of the judges’ scores!

BarkBox dog toys are 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.

July BarkBox Dog Treats

Treaties Peanut Butter Recipe Dog Treats ($5 retail value) The packaging looks just like the Wheaties box with a famous Olympian on the cover, except it’s an adorable pup-thlete. The perfect post workout treat.

Treaties Lamb Dog Treats ($5 retail value) The snack of chompians! Every athlete needs their protein, and lamb is the first ingredient in these tasty snacks.

Peanut Butter and Carob Stick Dog Treat ($3 retail value) We always love the chew stick that’s included each month in Daisy’s BarkBox. To make them last longer, and control her portions, I break off a piece at a time.

We think this month’s BarkBox deserves a GOLD MEDAL, 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.

There are always extras and fun surprises in each BarkBox, so be sure to check the inserts that come with your dog’s box. This month’s extra surprise is that the cardboard insert is designed so that you can turn your dog’s BarkBox into a podium where they can pose with their medal. Very cute as a photo prop for your dog’s Instagram or other social media profiles.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $33 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. And the BarkBox toys are really Instagram-worthy, making them the perfect photo props in addition to some amazing and unique dog toys!

Our Experience with the Kurgo Lifetime Warranty

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

We already knew that Kurgo makes some of the most durable dog accessories around, with a lifetime warranty, and we recently needed to put that guarantee to the test with our Kurgo Wander Hammock Dog Car Seat Cover. This version protects both the back seats as well as the back of the front seats. It also keeps Daisy from poking into the front seats while we are driving.

We’ve had two of these car seat covers, one in each of our cars, for about 6 years. They’ve done their job keeping our car seats clean and have been easy to care for. Usually just a quick vacuum or spot clean has taken care of business, but recently I noticed that the back lining was deteriorating and leaving a flaky mess on the back seats in my car. I’m guessing this was due to the amount of sun and heat that my car gets year-round here in South Florida. We double checked the cover in Woof Woof Papa’s car and it is still in great shape so this may have just been some kind of fluke.

I was disappointed but knew that Kurgo has a lifetime warranty, so I visited their website to see what to do about getting a replacement. Usually, there are all kinds of loopholes and hoops to jump through with company warranties, but Kurgo only required that I fill out a web form, upload photos and details about the purchase location and date, and within 2 days I’d received an email with shipping notification of our free replacement.

There aren’t that many companies out there willing to guarantee their products for life, but we can certainly confirm that the Kurgo Lifetime Warranty is 100% LEGIT.

People have asked me before if Kurgo dog products are worth the extra price. Yes, they are a little more expensive than some other brands, but you get what you pay for. Their products are designed for active dogs, outdoor and travel. And they really stand by their products, so you never have to worry if something goes wrong. I feel even more confident than ever in recommending their products to our fellow dog moms and dads.

Check out the Kurgo website for dog car seat covers, pet first aid kits, collars, harnesses, dog life jackets, pet travel and more active dog and pet safety products.

Important Note: you can find many Kurgo products for sale on Amazon but make sure that you check that the seller is actually Kurgo Products. My understanding is that the Lifetime Warranty only applies to authorized sellers, so it’s not worth saving a few bucks if you risk voiding the replacement guarantee. Use this link for the official Kurgo Products Page on Amazon.

Daisy Tries Shed Defender, The Dog Onesie That Controls Shedding

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

For a short-haired dog, Daisy sure does shed a LOT. This means fur on the sofa, in our bed where she sleeps every night, in the car…you name it, we find hair there. So I was super excited to test out the Shed Defender. It’s basically a dog bodysuit that contains pet hair. It also has some other useful features I think dog moms and dads will appreciate.

What is Shed Defender

The Shed Defender is a full-body dog onesie made from a lightweight, breathable fabric, with four-way stretch to allow your dog to move freely. It’s machine washable and dryable. The main purpose is to contain pet hair and prevent your dog from leaving fur everywhere. It can also help reduce anxiety, since its snug fit can create a calming effect (similar to a Thunder Shirt). If you and your dog like to spend time outdoors, you’ll be glad to know that the Shed Defender provides UV protection and helps keep your dog clean. It can be used instead of the dreaded Cone of Shame for certain medical conditions. It even comes with its own little pouch for travel and storage.

Putting It On and Taking It Off

The first time we tried putting the bodysuit on Daisy, it was a bit of a challenge. She doesn’t like new things and was really skeptical about the whole situation. To end up with a positive experience. never force your dog to do something they really don’t want to do. To get her used to it, I just put it on half way at first and then gave her some treats while we hung out.

Once we got the whole thing on and zipped up, it took her about 30 minutes to really be ok with it, and then I think she forgot she had it on. If you are planning to use one when you travel, in the car, or for anxiety reduction, I suggest a few trial-runs at home to get your dog familiar with what to expect.

Size and Fit

As you can see, it fits Daisy pretty well. Although there are MANY sizes available, I was concerned when choosing her size online because usually NOTHING fits her right. T-shirts, Halloween costumes, harnesses, we always seem to have trouble because she’s very slim but has a broad chest. Thanks to the accurate size chart and stretchy fabric, we didn’t have a problem. She’s 48lbs and is wearing the Large.

The model we got is the Original, with a full zipper, but Shed Defender also makes a Sport edition where the zipper stops at the belly, allowing easier access for potty.

Play Your Way To Good Manners Dog Training Book Review

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

Dog lovers, there’s a brand new dog training book dropping this week. Daisy and I got an early copy so we could check it out and tell you all about it.

It’s Play Your Way To Good Manners, Getting the Best Behavior from Your Dog through Sports, Games, and Tricks. The authors are accomplished dog trainers Kate Naito and Sarah Westcott.

There are many dog training books out there, but what we really love about this one is that it focuses on The Power of Play. I think we all know that learning is faster and more effective when we’re having FUN, but we often forget this when it comes to training our dogs. This book focuses on positive reinforcement and takes the frustration out of teaching AND learning.

Training topics include these basics: sit, down, stay, recall, and leashed walking; PLUS cute tricks, advanced tips, and games to beat boredom and encourage good manners.

Go HERE to get a look inside the book.

Spot Magazine says, “If you live with a dog, or plan to live with a dog, or just like other people’s dogs, consider this book required reading. It extends the responsibility for companionship and communication to both ends of the leash, helping humans understand dogs, what motivates them, and how they learn.”

We think this one is worth grabbing for yourself or your favorite dog person. It’s being released this week and is available HERE with Amazon’s Pre-Order Low Price Guarantee, or look for it at your favorite local book shop.
