I don’t review it every month, but I have been a long-time subscriber to BarkBox, a subscription box for dogs, and really enjoy receiving the box each and every month. Well, I don’t look forward to receiving it as much as my two puppies do, obviously!
The reason I like this box so much is that they do a really great job of sending new healthy dog treats for my pups to try. All dog treats are not created equal, but I have never once had a problem with my dogs having upset stomachs after consuming anything that comes in BarkBox. That’s a testament to the high-quality treats they pick out, I think.
Here’s what I received in my August BarkBox:
Bocce’s Bakery Lobster Roll Treats ($10) – I believe I discovered Bocce’s treats as a result of BarkBox quite a few months ago and this brand remains a favorite of my dogs. Earlier this summer I looked into purchasing some of these Lobster Roll treats for them, but at $10 (!!!) for a bag of treats I decided to pass. The reason I like this brand is that they really keep the ingredients list to a minimum. These particular treats include organic rye & barley flour, lobster, kelp, and parsley. You can’t get much more natural than that!
Muddy Buddy Dog Mop ($12) – I believe I learned about the Muddy Buddy Dog Mop when I was preparing for last year’s holiday gift guide and it has been on my must-have list ever since. This little towel is able to soak up seven times its weight and dries up to five times faster! We haven’t had an opportunity to try this out yet because the weather has been pretty dry, but I’m sure I’ll bringing this out pretty soon!
Bixbi Daily Essentials Chicken Breast Jerky Treats ($10) – Last week I mentioned how much my dogs love meaty treats, and this particular treat is their current favorite. Each piece looks like beef jerky (makes sense, right?) and they get really excited when I pull these out of the drawer. (Yes, we have a treat drawer. They get different treats throughout the day.)
Pet Rageous Lobster ($6) – BarkBox always includes a toy in the box, and this month it’s a squeaky lobster. Fitting, considering the lobster roll treats! My dogs LOVE their squeaky toys, and while I haven’t given them this one yet I’m sure it’s going to be a hit.
Overall: Per usual, this was a great box from BarkBox! I really don’t have any complaints and neither do the dogs!
BarkBox is a dog subscription box. When subscribing you can choose the size of your dog (tiny, small & cute, just right, or big & bold) and they will adjust the products received each month so they are appropriate for your dog’s size. BarkBox costs $29 per month, though the price goes down if you pay for multiple months up-front. For instance, with a one-year paid subscription you’ll pay just $18 per month. Shipping is free on all boxes. Typically I would say that each box contains about $40 worth of products, so I never feel like I am not getting my money’s worth.
