This month was really interesting.. Barkbox sent out TWO boxes! I don’t know why (they didn’t explain), but I have a hunch that it had to do with last month’s issue with the Cantankerous Paint Can toy.. regardless, they sent out a duplicate of the toys/treats, with the can toy replaced with another. The replacement toy I got was this acrylic tube of blue paint!!
The theme for this month is BarkBeard’s Treasure: A Pirate’s Tail!!!
This box came with a very fancy bandana for BarkBeard to wear.
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”!
Please excuse my muddy sunroom…
In this box I received:
– Anchor’s Away by Bark & Co. ($14.00 value)
A large toy composed of a tube-shaped squeaker, a t-shirt rope, and lots of stuffing! It says it has reinforced stitching, but Floyd will test that theory out.
– Fish and Chips Medley by Max and BFF Bones ($12.00 value)
There’s freeze-dried whitefish pieces as well as crunchy salmon treats.. Unfortunately, many of the whitefish treats crumbled in the bag!
– Full Pig Ear by Sawmill Creek Smokehouse ($5.00 value)
– Greedy Gilly ($14.00 value)
Lots of stuffing and with a large, round squeaker in the middle!
– Lamb Ho! by Bark & Co. ($12.00 value)
Chewy, lamb-based sticks!
This month’s box came to a value of $57.00!!
If you include the duplicate box, this month came out to a value of $104.00!!!!
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.
