BarkBox Dog Subscription Box Review + Coupon: 1990’s Edition

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

In case you missed it, the April BarkBox was all about the 90’s. This dog box of goodies was full of retro treats and toys that really made us smile. Our review is based on Daisy’s large dog subscription for heavy chewers (not to be confused with the Super Chewer subscription). Since each BarkBox plan is customized for your dog’s size and other preferences, items will vary but the number of items and overall value of the box is usually the same for everyone. Here’s what was in our BarkBox this month.

BarkBox April Dog Treats

  • Joy Sticks Pork Flavored Dog Treats ($6 retail value) All-natural dog treats made in the USA with smoky pork, peas, and potato.
  • Duck Treats for Dogs ($6 retail value) Made in the USA exclusively for BarkBox, these treats include wholesome potatoes, pearled barley, and oatmeal.
  • Pig Ear Chew for Dogs ($5 retail value) This treat is sourced and made in the USA by the folks at Sawmill Creek.


April BarkBox Dog Toys

  • Sodapup Crazy Bounce Ball Dog Toy ($12 retail value) It’s just what the name says it it. A rubber ball and chew toy that is designed so that it bounces in crazy and unpredictable ways. It’s heavy and solid so be careful when you throw it!
  • Mix Breed Mix Tape Dog Toy and Treat Puzzle ($14 retail value) This is one of my favorites because in the 90’s we all made mix tapes and it has a fun retro feel that fits with the whole box. It’s also become one of Daisy’s favorite toys, especially when I stick pieces of the joy stick treats in it! It’s a super durable chew toy that seems built to last, even with heavy use.

BarkBox Bonus Items

In addition to amazing toys and treats, we also love that the folks at BarkBox often include bonus items that tie-in with the theme of the month. This time, we got a sheet of super cute and fun stickers. It’s added touches like this, along with the unique toys and treats that you won’t find elsewhere that make BarkBox really special.

We also count on their experts for hand-picked, high-quality treats and toys that introduce us to new pet products that we might not have tried on our own. And if there is every an item that doesn’t meet with your dog’s approval, BarkBox has a satisfaction guarantee and will replace the item with no hassles. We’ve only had to do this one in all the years Daisy has subscribed to BarkBox, but I was impressed with their customer service.

This month’s box items had a total retail value of $43. It will vary from month to month, but with plans starting as low as $21/month we find BarkBox to consistently deliver great value. Note that free shipping is included on US orders ($5 extra for Canada).

I was checking out a new clothing site I heard about recently, ModCloth, and had no real plans to blog about it, but I kept finding all these super cute cat and dog items and had to tell someone! That’s one nice thing about having a blog…always someone to tell when I discover cool new stuff!

Anyway, ModCloth is an online store that sells clothing, gifts and accessories from independent designers, and also carries a huge selection of vintage-inspired, retro and one-of-a-kind items.  In addition to an amazing selection of dresses, bathing suits and shoes, they’ve also got quirkier items all you cat and dog people are sure to love, like magnets, books, mugs and even a “catula”! That’s a spatula shaped like a cat. How cute is this cat bag???

Anyway, if you’re the kind of person who likes to express your own unique and original style AND hate the mall, you will love browsing ModCloth for indy brand clothing and so much more! Just don’t start looking when you’re in a hurry because it’s super easy to lose track of time with so much cool and unexpected stuff to browse!

We were just at PetSmart picking up our Free (huge 26oz) bag of Innova Healthbars we won during the Facebook Instant Win Holiday Game (Thanks PetSmart and Innova!), and I noticed that all the Rock N’ Retro Dog T-Shirts are 75% Off. Sizes are limited and they run a little small so get the next size up or take your dog and try them on first…Daisy is only 48 pounds but the large is a little snug as you can see! I grew up listening to RUN DMC so I had to get this one for her, and I also got a pink one with retro candy that says, “Oooh So Sweet!”. Online, the price shown is $5.99 but they rang up at $3.67 each at our location. View the styles here, but note that they are available in-store only as far as I can tell!
