Super Chewer BarkBox Review December 2017

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

Fellow dog lovers, we tried to wait til Christmas morning but we just had to let Daisy open one very special present a little bit early. It’s this month’s BarkBox Super Chewer edition. A gift box of goodies for dogs who chew harder — with heavy duty chews and toys that are made to last. If your dog is a toy destroyer or you’re looking for an alternative to plush dog toys, this box is for you.

BarkBox is the most popular dog subscription box service around, with your choice of 1, 6 or 12-month plans. You specify your dog’s size and whether they have allergies, then the folks over at BarkBox customize each month’s box especially for your lucky pup. Daisy has had a BarkBox membership for several years and we have also given BarkBox as a gift to a few of our favorite dog pals.

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 (and mine). Every month’s BarkBox has a different theme and this month the theme is Dogmas in the City, celebrating the howlidays…our favorite time of the year!

If you’re in a super big hurry, jump straight on over to BarkBox and get your dog’s first Super Chewer box now!

If you have time, 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. Keep in mind that items will vary depending on your dog’s size and allergies.

December Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Treats

My Doggy Salmon Treats ($10 retail value) These soft-baked dog cookies are made with wholesome ingredients: rye flour, honey, salmon, palm oil, eggs, parsley. Daisy loves anything with salmon so we are super excited about these dog treats!

Dynamic Chewo Dog Treats ($10 retail value) What’s better than one meat? TWO! These treats have Beef and Chicken listed as the first 2 ingredients. They also include pork broth and beef liver so they are truly a meat lovers dream!

6″ Piggy Twizzies Chew Stick ($3 retail value) This all-natural meat chew stick is grain free, gluten free, soy free, and dairy free. It’s also 100% digestible and made with a single source protein: PORK!

Butcher’s Block Roasted Beef Steak Dog Treat ($4 retail value) This “steak” is actually 100% beef lung from USDA Beef, Born and Raised in the USA. It comes with the warning not to use on carpets, so we are saving this one for later but I know from past experience that lung treats are one of Daisy’s favorites!

December Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Toys

Gnaw Me the Snowman Dog Toy ($16 retail value) We love stuff-able dog toys like this guy. Put some peanut butter and banana inside, freeze it, and it will keep your pup busy and happy. Made in the USA with durable, bouncy rubber. Perfect for a game of fetch, or chewing session.

Benebone Bark Holiday Pretzel ($16 retail value) It’s a BACON infused chew toy shaped like a giant hot pretzel. Designed especially for heavy chewers, the large is good for dogs up to 60lbs.

This box’s items had a total retail value of $59 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.

Super Chewer BarkBox for Toy Destroyers

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

Got a dog that’s a toy destroyer? You’re not alone. One of the most common complaints I hear from pet parents is that they are tired of spending money on toys that don’t last and wimpy treats that don’t satisfy. The folks over at BarkBox also heard you and have created a special Super Chewer edition for dogs who chew harder and demand a challenge.

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-chompians like your pup!

 

If you want to learn more about Super Chewer and see what was in the most recent box, then keep reading.

 

Each month’s BarkBox is designed around a different theme, and the October theme was perfect for Halloween. A mix of tricks and treats especially for pups with superior shredding skills. Here’s a look at the October Super Chewer BarkBox which contained 4 full-size dog treats and 2 extra durable dog toys:

Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Toys

Un-Squashable Pumpkin Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This super tough toy is made of ballistic nylon and durable rubber, making it a bouncy fetch toy and a mighty tug toy. Most of the toys in the Super Chewer boxes are this tough rubber type which we love, because Daisy is an obsessive chewer and it’s great not to have to worry about her swallowing stuffing or the pieces that can break off from less durable dog toys.

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. Many of the BarkBox toys for destroyers are 2 toys in one, meaning that if/when your dog rips the outside off, there is a bonus ball or other shape toy inside to keep the fun going.

Every Super Chewer toy also come with a guarantee so that if your dog destroys it or just plain doesn’t like it, you can let BarkBox know and they will replace it for free.

Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Treats and Chews

As I mentioned, there were 4 treats in the October Super Chewer BarkBox; a mix of crunchy and chewy in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Simply Ghoulicious Dog Treats ($8 retail value) What would Fall be without pumpkin treats? The Simply Ghoulicious morsels are made in the USA with all natural ingredients for your pup to celebrate autumn in spooky style.

Zombie Crunch Dog Treats ($8 retail value) These are super crunchy pork strips. So crunchy and tough in fact, that I could hear Daisy eating one from the other room. 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.

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.

Happy Howies Lamb Burger Chew ($3 retail value) Fresh made in the USA from real, slow-cooked lamb.

Don’t let that sweet face fool you. Daisy is QUITE the toy destroyer, so we find the BarkBox Super Chewer edition to be a great value. Not only are the toys fun and challenging, but they are also built to last. And we love the extra chews that come with this subscription version (more than the Classic BarkBox usually has).

This box’s items had a total retail value of $49 which is a bargain when you consider that a subscription starts as low as $29/month. Plus, we love that we get toys and treats we wouldn’t find elsewhere. And you can’t beat the BarkBox satisfaction guarantee.

tough dog toys gift guide for pets

1) Varsity Ball: 110% Guaranteed Indestructible and tons of fun! Daisy and her boyfriend Fin have tested hers repeatedly and it wears them out each time! Comes in 4 color choices including a special Limited Edition Pink with $2 going to Chase Away K9 Cancer. Made in USA, the Varsity Ball is a generous 12″ in diameter at $39.

2) KONG Classic: Daisy’s very first toy was a KONG and this brand has never let us down. This super bouncy rubber chew toy is Made in the USA and is designed to be stuffed with any kind of treat (Daisy likes peanut butter in hers) to keep dogs busy and entertained while they work for their snack. You can freeze them, too! S-XXL starting from $5.58.

3) Bionic Bone: Made from FDA-approved bionic rubber, this fun toy floats and can be stuffed with treats, frozen, and put in the dishwasher, too! Similar to the KONG, but always fun to have different shapes, sizes and colors to play with! Daisy got one a few months ago and it still looks brand new even with daily use. S-L from $9.99.

4) Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Cosmos Dog Toy: We think these 5″ ball toys look like they’d make a great addition to Daisy’s toy box and are on our wish list this Christmas! VENUS is pink, MARS is swirly silver, SOL is orange and LUNA, representing the moon, glows in the dark. Each has a spot for hiding treats and are designed with big dogs in mind.  Cosmos are made in the USA, are buoyant, bouncy, minty, recyclable, non-toxic and 100-Percent guaranteed. $10-$15 each.

5) Nylabone Proaction Dog Dental Chew: A very long-time favorite of Daisy’s, we actually lost her first one recently (she even used to sleep with it). It was 2 years old and still in great shape, so I’m still hoping it will turn up eventually. Not to be confused with Nylabone edible chew treats, this is a hard chew toy with a specially-textured design to stimulate gums and reduce tartar as well as help satisfy your dog’s natural urge to chew. Several design styles and sizes are available from $6-$18 each.

For safety, it’s very important to inspect dog toys frequently and watch for wear and tear or broken pieces that could create a choking hazard or injury. Not all dog toys are right for every dog, and you should never leave your dog unattended with a new toy if he or she is an extreme chewer or has a history of destroying tough toys.
