BarkBox Review + Coupon: Paradise Unleashed Edition

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

In case you are new to the blog, or just hadn’t heard about BarkBox, it’s the most popular dog subscription box services around, and one of our favorite things. If you’d like to try it, you can get a FREE extra month added to any order of 1-month or more when you use BarkBox coupon code WOOFWOOFMAMA at Or read on to learn more!

Each BarkBox is customized for your dog’s size as well as any food allergies, and shipping is free in the US. Every month’s BarkBox has an original theme with 2 cute toys and 3 tasty treats.

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.

Time to unbox and review this month’s BarkBox, and we are LOVING the tropical vibe! Living in South Florida, we are always ready to enjoy some sun and sand, but the toys and treats made us feel like we are on Spring Break…Daisy put on her Hawaiian Shirt, so you know she is ready to party!

The theme for the February BarkBox Classic was Paradise Unleashed and it did NOT disappoint.  Here’s a look at what was in the February Classic BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately:

February BarkBox Dog Toys

Penny the Pineapple Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This is one of those BarkBox originals that is 2-toys-in-1. It’s got a spikey ball and crinkle material, plus a hidden bonus toy inside. I can’t wait til Daisy rips into hers so we can see what we got!

Cecil’s SeaShell Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This squeaky toy is too cute. It’s also got a spikey ball core and Daisy loves the fuzzy part!

February BarkBox Dog Treats

Tiki Treats from Healthy Dogma ($8 retail value) These pork and pineapple dog treats are made in the USA without wheat, corn, or soy. Wholesome and delicious (according to Daisy).
Beast of the Feast Dog Treats ($10 retail value) Feels like we are at a luau with these pork and apple dog treats! Also made in the USA without wheat, corn, or soy.
Doggie Biscotti ($4 retail value) This tough chew is packed with protein. It’s 100% pork hide with no fillers, by-products or preservatives. Made in the USA, from the folks at SawMill Creek.

Be aware that as a BarkBox customer, if you ever receive a toy or treat that doesn’t meet your standards, you can contact BarkBox and they will send a free replacement. It’s part of their Scout’s Honor satisfaction guarantee, and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the service we’ve received in the 6 or so years we’ve been subscribers!

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 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.

This BarkBox is so fun and totally put us in the vacay mood! It even came included a resort ‘brochure’ instead of the usual info card. Love the extra attention to detail.

Finding The Perfect Pet Sitter For Your Dog

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

As pet parents, most of us consider our dog a member of the family. Leaving them behind when we travel can be both sad and very stressful. Until recently, we had neighbors whose dogs we would watch when they were away — and we knew that they would do the same for us. But what do you do when you don’t have a trusted friend or neighbor nearby to help watch the fur kid when you go out of town? That’s exactly what we’ve been wondering…

Finding the Perfect Pet Sitter

We recently connected with the folks at, an online community that helps you find a trusted 5-star dog sitter who can either host your pup in their home or come to you. It’s a super alternative to traditional caged boarding facilities or kennels which can be noisy and stressful…not something I’ve ever wanted to put Daisy through since rescuing her from the overcrowded shelter where we found and adopted her! Whether you’ve got a pampered purebred or mystery mutt like we do, I’m sure you feel the same way about wanting the best for your fur kids.

Now, pet boarding is not somewhere you want to skimp on quality so you may be thinking that it’s super-pricey to get a 5-star sitter to care for your dog either by coming to your home, or by hosting them at their house. Prices vary by location, but are considerably lower than kennels, and range from $15 to $30 per night.

What’s included:

  • 24/7 Vet Assistance
  • Peace of Mind Protection
  • Local 5-Star rated Sitters
  • TrustCloud Verified Sitters
  • Rover Reel Video with Each Stay
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

It’s super easy to get started. You can create a FREE online profile for your dog, then browse for sitters by price and location. Just visit to check it all out.

Daisy & I are working with to help spread the word about their services. We only share information we think will be of value and interest to our readers.
