September BarkBox Review + Coupon (Bark University Edition)

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

It’s no wonder that BarkBox is the most popular subscription box service for dogs. Each month’s delivery comes packed with fun goodies dogs love. The September BarkBox theme was Bark University, just in time for back to school! In addition to 2 amazing dog toys and 3 tasty dog treats, the BarkBox also included a Welcome Letter from the Dean and a few more surprises.

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 her September University-Themed BarkBox:

September BarkBox Dog Toys

Pup of Noodles Dog Toy ($12 retail value) Every college student on a budget practically lives on ramen noodles, but this dog toy has a special surprise built in. Hidden inside is a spiky ball core, which is like a bonus toy when your pup rips through the noodles’ exterior. Squeaky fun and low sodium, too!
Shar-Pei Highlicker ($10 retail value) Stuffed with a squeaky water bottle core and crazy crinkle, this noisy highlighter will make playtime so memorable, your dog will be more than prepared for the pup quiz!

September BarkBox Dog Treats

Lambda Treata Phi Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These all-natural lamb dog treats that are ideal for snacking, a reward, or just grabbing a handful because you’re late to class. The natural smoky flavor make them the perfect study snack!

Brew Biscuit Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Your furry scholar won’t need a fake ID to indulge in these brewery treats. Ingredients: Cheddar cheese, spent grains (barley & rolled oats), coconut oil, natural bacon flavor. College kids love junk food, but as parents we sure love seeing a short list of real food ingredients!

Spirit Stick Pork Chew ($3 retail value) Made in the USA, dried bits of pig have never tasted this good (to a dog) before! This strip of pork hide is slow dried, which produces a super-tough, super-tasty snack for your pup.

As I mentioned, there were a few extra surprises in this month’s BarkBox: A Welcome Letter from the Dean of Admissions at #BARKUniversity along with a Course “Dogalog” registration for, and instructions on how to help your “Valadogtorian” score a perfect 4.0 and win some free dog toys and treats!

BarkBox Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox had $41 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.
