Here’s March 2018’s Barkbox theme… The Academy of Fine Arfs!
This box came with a beautiful drawing of my dog. IDK who drew this picture but I think they got it spot on.
I signed Floyd up for the 12 month BarkBox plan ($20 per month), and I liked it so much I renewed my subscription. BarkBox is a dog treat/toy/chew program that you can subscribe to and you will get a randomly themed box every month! Each box has five items in it, which are randomly selected from that month’s collection.
There are three plans but you can try out singular boxes if you’d like. All box plans have free shipping to contiguous USA, $5 shipping for outside (yes that includes Canada!)
$20.00/BarkBox for 12 months
$24.00/BarkBox for 6 months
$29.00/BarkBox for 1 month
Boxes are customizable by size/weight for a more personalized experience. There are boxes geared towards small dogs (“Small & Cute, 0-20lbs), medium-sized dogs (“Just Right”, 20-50lbs), and the box I got for Floyd, which is the large dog box (“Big & Bold", 50+lbs).
All treats are grain-free, and organic when possible, and there is even an option to choose boxes specifically picked for dogs with allergies (in these boxes, they avoid certain protein sources like chicken and beef). If your dog is a destroyer or power chewer like mine, you can contact BarkBox and have your boxes upgraded to the tougher toys for “Super Chewers”!
In this box I received:
– Buffalo Chew by Etta Says ($3.00 value)
I always like getting things from Etta Says. This is your standard rawhide chip stick, made of rawhide.
– Painter’s Pallet Treats by Treat Simple ($8.00 value)
These are wide, flat, chewy treats. They honestly remind me of Bravecto tablets (same shape). They’re about 1.5-2" across.
– Rabbit Sliders with Cranberry by Hare of The Dog ($10.00 value)
I’ve always hoped I’d eventually get these treats in a box, and I did! They’re rabbit patties and I think they’re jerky-like.
– Super Vincent Van Squirrel ($16.00 value)
Vincent Van Gogh as a squirrel, complete with missing ear. The tail is great for ripping and shredding, and Floyd wasted no time in ripping the paintbrush out of his hand.
– The Cantankerous Paint Can by Bark ($18.00 value)
This toy is rubber and has a hole in the top to put treats through. I really like the material of the rope and hope Barkbox adds this rope to more of their toys. Barkbox sent out an email to those of us who received this toy in our boxes to say that some dogs were ripping the caps off the ends of the ropes and trying to eat them. If our dogs were the type to do this (absolutely yes), they would send a credit to replace the cost of the can, and we can order a new toy for our dog. I ordered a “PlayActin Paddy” opossum toy because it’s just too cute.
This month’s box came to a value of $55.00!!
If you have any issues with your dog’s treats or toys (say he doesn’t like a certain treat or toy at all), BarkBox will replace them every time, for free. If you want to cancel your plan, you can cancel it at any time as well with no cancellation fee.
If your dog destroys the toys, you can take a picture of it and send the photo to them to earn credits for FREE TOYS and join the Destroyer’s Club! Credits have a dollar value and you can exchange them for items from BarkShop, or you can earn free toys after reaching a certain level in the club.
