BarkBox Review + Coupons: Toxic Critters Edition

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

Pet parents, you know how there are lists online of all the things that are toxic to dogs? Well, this month’s BarkBox for dogs is filled with cold-blooded villains and scary henchmen called Toxic Critters, but don’t worry, they are totally pet-friendly and dog-approved!

Every month’s BarkBox has a different theme, and this month’s theme is the comic book adventure: BARK vs. Toxicritters. 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. There are also fun extras and surprises in most boxes, like the comic book included in our box this month to go along with the theme.

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

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 July 2018 Classic BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately:

July BarkBox Dog Treats
  • 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.
  • KA-PAW! Duck Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Skinny duck chews, also made with all-natural ingredients. As with all BarkBox treats, these are Made in the USA and are wheat free, soy free and corn free.
  • 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. Although we aren’t big on hide treats in general, we love that this one contains no chemicals, byproducts or additives, so we feel great about sharing it with Daisy’s pal who absolutely loves hide treats!

We were really happy with this month’s BarkBox treats, 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.

July BarkBox Dog Toys
  • Croc Jaw Dog Toy ($14 retail value) A true comic book henchman, complete with colorful disguise! This cold-blooded creep grunts when he squeaks, has tough ballistic nylon detailing, and is double stuffed with fluff. We love the texture of his tail, and also that BarkBox has started labeling their toys with info on the features of each one.

  • Shock Roach Dog Toy ($16 retail value) I’m not gonna lie, this toy creeps me out. Living in South Florida, we try extra hard to avoid this sort of toxic critter, but Daisy seems to really like this evil villain. He’s got tug ropes for legs and a hard shell along with a soft microfiber textured underbelly. His insides are squeakers and crinkle material.

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 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.
