BarkBox Super Chewer Review November 2017

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

Dog moms and dads, are you tired of spending money on toys that don’t last and wimpy treats that don’t satisfy? The makers of BarkBox have created a SUPER CHEWER edition of their super popular dog subscription box, made especially for dogs who chew harder and demand a challenge. The Super Chewer BarkBox makes a great holiday gift for dogs, so read on to learn more!

Just like with the Classic BarkBox, the Super Chewer edition is a monthly dog subscription box with toys, treats and goodies for your dog. And, since extreme chewers come in all sizes, the subscription can be customized for your dog’s size in your choice of small, medium or large. Each month, your dog’s Super Chewer BarkBox contains heavy duty chews, all-natural treats, and challenging, strong toys that you can’t find together anywhere else. The extra durable toys are made for world-class toy destroyers like your pup!

Each month’s BarkBox has a different theme and this month the theme was Pupstate Orchards, celebrating the bounty of the harvest. The paper in the box always matches the theme and is filled with fun surprises. This month is extra CUTE because the dog looks just like Daisy!

The Super Chewer BarkBox usually contains 2 dog toys, 2 or 3 treats and a chew, but this month had a bonus because one of the toys came with treat refills included. Read on to see what toys and treats were in this month’s BarkBox for Super Chewers along with estimated retail value if you were to purchase each item separately in the Bark Shop.

Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Toys

Rumble Berry Pie Dog Toy ($12 retail value) This pie shaped dog toy is fun on its own, but is designed so that you can put kibble or treats in it. Bounce it and the treats fly out, or give it to your dog and let them figure it out for themselves! Made in the USA of 100% tummy-safe rubber.

Bouncy Buddy Bone Treat Toy for Dogs ($12 retail value) Made by PetSafe, this is a combination chew toy and treat puzzle dogs love. It’s got a super-tough and bouncy rubber ball with a durable nylon bone through the middle to add some excitement to playtime. The nylon bones on either side detach, so you can attach the treat rings to the rubber ball.

Treat Ring Refills for Buddy Bone Dog Toy ($10 retail value) A whole bag of bacon flavored, gluten free dog treats that fit perfectly on the Buddy Bone toy. Yummy and long-lasting, just what every dog wants! (These are treats but since they go with the bone toy, I’ve listed them under toys)

Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Treats

Yum in the Oven Duck Cranberry Dog Treats ($12 retail value) Made in the USA with rich, meaty duck as the first ingredient. These tasty treats also have cranberries, flaxseed and natural smoke flavor.

Butcher’s Block 6″ Krunchie Tube ($3 retail value) 100% quality beef treat from Omaha, Nebraska. Lots of Chondroitin and Glucosamine to support bone and joint health in dogs. Daisy just likes them because they taste great!

Etta Says! Crunchy 7″ Premium Elk Chew ($3 retail value) I’ve mentioned this before, but Daisy loves all the crunchy meat stick varieties from Etta Says! and we’d be happy if we got one in her BarkBox every month! I break them in pieces and dole them out slowly rather than giving her the whole stick at once.

This box’s items had a total retail value of $52 which makes the subscription price a real bargain when you consider that plans starts as low as $29/month. Plus, we love that we get toys and treats we wouldn’t find elsewhere. Not only are the toys fun and challenging, but they are also built to last.  And you can’t beat the BarkBox satisfaction guarantee; they will replace any item if it doesn’t hold up to your standards or if your dog doesn’t like it for any reason.

BarkBox Review + Coupon October 2017

Interested in surprising your dog with original toys and treats? BarkBox is the most popular monthly subscription box service for dogs. Each month’s delivery comes packed with fun goodies dogs love. The October BarkBox was filled with frights and delights, just in time for Halloween! In addition to 2 crazy fun dog toys and 3 super tasty dog treats, the BarkBox also included a whole bunch of trick or treat cards for handing out to all our favorite pups in the neighborhood they can get a FREE BarkBox of goodies, too.

We hope you’ll stay for our monthly BarkBox review, but if you’re just here for the BarkBox coupon code, scroll straight down to the end and find out how to snag a FREE BarkBox with any order of 1 month or longer!

Daisy’s been getting her BarkBox deliveries for several years now, and it’s still something we always look forward to! Each month we show you what toys and treats are inside that month’s BarkBox, and how the total value of the individual items compares to the price of a monthly subscription.

Be aware that each BarkBox subscription is customized for your dog’s size and allergies, so individual items will vary. Here’s what we got in our October Halloween-Themed BarkBox:

October BarkBox Dog Toys

We got one trick and one treat with this month’s BarkBox toys. A “scary” vacuum cleaner character and a “sweet” candy toy. Both are large, colorful and built to last!

Count Vacuula Dog Toy ($10 retail value) Part of the Household Horrors collection of toys designed exclusively for BarkBox. Stuffed with squeakers, this toy is only slightly quieter than the real thing… but it is double the fun!

Barkzooka Bubblegum Dog Toy ($12 retail value) It won’t stick to fur, but with the hidden spiky ball core (bonus toy!) that keeps playtime going, you will be stuck with the toy for oodles of time.

 

October BarkBox Dog Treats

Etta Says! Crunchy Duck Stick ($4 retail value) This one is a Daisy FAVORITE…it’s really the only repeat we’ve ever gotten in all the years of getting BarkBox and we wouldn’t complain if we got one every time! I break off smaller pieces of this from time to time rather than give her the whole thing at once.

Spooky Snacks Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Made in the USA without any weird dyes or fillers, these all-natural treats have nothing spooky about them at all. They have cheese in them, which is exactly what Daisy would hope for most if she went trick-or-treating in real life.

Zombie Crunch Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These are super crunchy pork strips. So crunchy in fact, that I could hear Daisy eating one from the other room. She’s not usually a loud eater. I like the size of these strips, since I usually restrict the amount of meat treats she gets. They’re perfectly portioned and all-natural.

As usual, this BarkBox included some added touches that really help to make the experience a special one. The paper that came in the box had cartoons on it, and the info card not only explained the Household Horrors theme, but the flip side also had a fun activity of opening to see who is inside each window on the haunted house.

As I mentioned, it also came with perforated “candy bars” which are individual cards to hand out so our dog pals can also get a BarkBox of their own.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $42 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.

Turn Your Dog’s Bath Time Into a Spa Day

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

Some dogs love getting a bath. Daisy is not one of those dogs. In fact Daisy dreads bath time so much that we’ve had to come up with some special tricks and treats to make it more fun and relaxing for her and for us. Since this often takes a bit of time and patience, I like to plan ahead and schedule her dog bath for when I’m not in a rush and I know there won’t be a lot of distractions. We treat it like a spa day.

If you’d like to treat your dog to a spa day, here are some tips:

Set the mood with pet-friendly spa scents, a pre-bath dog treat and some mood lighting.

Set the mood with the right lighting, either with candles (flameless are safest around pets) or by dimming the lights. I also have treats handy and like to spray the shower curtain and rug with a bit of pet-safe fragrance spray.

The treats for this spa day are grain-free Beef Jerky Bites from Isle of Dogs. They’re made with grass-fed beef along with green lipped mussels; a luxurious spa snack if you ask me! The spray is Violet and Sea Mist Repláscent, also from Isle of Dogs. It’s an odor neutralizer that is safe to use on and around dogs. It smells so lovely that I’ve been using it in my car and closet.

Choose the right grooming supplies for your dog.

We’re using Silky Oatmeal Shampoo and Conditioner from the NaturaLuxury Collection. Daisy has sensitive skin so we love that it’s free from sulfate and paraban, and that it’s mild and gentle. The oatmeal and Jojoba help soothe dry skin and give Daisy’s fur a nice, soft feel. The scent is a very light jasmine and vanilla. Just right and not perfume-y at all.

The conditioner is from the same collection and is the first dog conditioner we’ve tried. Using this conditioner helps to loosen up the old, shedded hair that gets caught up in a dog’s coat. It helps make the brushing process much easier and reduces tangles. Daisy has very short, thin hair so this really helps protect and moisturize both the skin and hair. Can’t have a spa day without a good conditioner treatment!

Talk or sing to your dog during their bath

I sing and talk to my dog all the time, but she still sometimes gives me the head tilt like I’m asking her a very important question. She really takes advantage of spa day for all the extra treats and attention, and I can’t blame her. A girl needs some extra pampering from time to time.

SMILE…your almost done!

Drying off and running around full zoomy-style is Daisy’s favorite part of bath time. She has her own set of big fluffy beach towels and loves a good rub down after a bath or rainy day walk. Do all dogs get the zoomies after they get wet? She goes crazy.

Schedule some lounging and nap time

Nothing is nicer after a long bath and some zoomies, than settling in for a nap. Although Daisy sleeps in our bed at night, she has her own cozy den especially for napping. I use the Violet and Sea Mist Repláscent on her bedding and the rug to help keep the area smelling fresh. I’m so happy with this scent that I’m already planning to order more in a few of the other fragrances!

May BarkBox Review + Coupon: Wild Wild Woof

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

BarkBox is the number 1 monthly subscription box service for dogs, and Daisy’s been getting the Large Dog BarkBox for several years now. Each month we show you what toys and treats are inside that month’s BarkBox, and how the total value of the individual items compares to the price of a monthly subscription. Be aware that each BarkBox subscription is customized for your dog’s size and allergies, so individual items will vary.

Want to see what was in the May BarkBox subscription box for dogs?
Saddle up, pups, because this month’s BarkBox theme was all about the Wild West!

The Cowboy BarkBox came with 2 large squeaky dog toys and 3 full-size treats. Daisy got plush squeaky toys in this box but if your dog is a bit tough on toys, you can specify “heavy chewer” in your subscription profile and your dog will receive tougher toys. This is NOT to be confused with the Super Chewer BarkBox which is a different subscription for dogs. We’ll be reviewing that box separately.

May BarkBox Dog Toys

Rattle Snake Battle Snake ($12 retail value) This guy uncoils for extra long fun. He’s got squeakers AND a rattling tail. He’s cuter than the average snake and much friendlier!

Biff the Spiffy Buffalo ($14 retail value) This toy is made especially for the BarkBox company and is designed for medium to large dogs. It’s squeaky and fun for tossing, tugging and cuddling. Daisy thinks buffalo sounds DELICIOUS and is licking her chops at the idea of having a whole one all to herself!

May BarkBox Dog Treats

Pork and Beans Dog Treats ($6 retail value) These all-natural dog treats are made in the USA by Lucky Dog with NO wheat, soy or corn. And contrary to the name, they do NOT contain beans. The ingredients are: pork, barley, oat, brown rice syrup, maple syrup, and natural smoke flavor. They are a soft and chewy treat.

My Doggy Cheesy Cookies Dog Treats ($10 retail value) These all-natural dog treats are also made in the USA. They’ve got cheddar and parmesan cheese along with molasses, ginger and rye. The cookies are soft-baked and chewy…just like a cookie should be!

Pork Roll Dog Chew ($4 retail value) This 8″ dog treat is 100% all-natural pork and is sourced and made in the USA by Sawmill Creek Smokehouse. We’re saving this one for a special occasion…from experience, we know that these dog chews are long-lasting and super satisfying!

In addition to multiple treats and toys, BarkBox usually includes a fun extra to go along with each monthly theme. Last month was 90’s themed stickers that we thought were totally rad!

This month, the box included a card with a cutout so that you can create a “wanted poster” of your dog. I couldn’t decide what crime Daisy is wanted for but I’m pretty sure it has to do with being TOO cute! She’s also guilty of begging but what dog isn’t?!? She even looks a little guilty in the photo.

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $46 worth of toys and treats if you were to purchase them all separately. A great value when you consider that subscription prices start at $21/month.
