I wasn’t expecting the pile of packages on my porch this morning and I so was not expecting Barkbox to be in that pile. I wasn’t even sure if it’d shipped yet! But the furries were quite happy to see it. It’s a rainy mess here and they are kind of bored.

The Box

Barkbox ships via DHL Global Mail and took 10 days to arrive (I looked in my Barkbox account to track it once it arrived). I didn’t get a shipping e-mail on this one (or maybe I just didn’t see it), so I didn’t know when it was coming.

First Look

The first look? I loved it!! Everything looked adorable and the dogs and WB kept trying to grab things away from me when I was taking the pictures.

The Information Card

The December Barkbox didn’t really have a theme, rather it just noted some of the things the Barkbox team shares with their “canine kindred” like beds, treats, kisses, and secrets. LOL. Here is what was included this month:

~Simply Fido Reindeer Toy ($9.99): We got a reindeer from Barkbox last December which I thought was the cutest thing ever, but this is a close second. Plus, that first reindeer is toast.  The boys already trotted this off to their toy stash and will be fighting over it later.

~GoDog Yetis Toy ($6.97): Now this was stolen quickly by WB who seems to think it’s a new toy for him and I don’t blame him.  It’s totally something I would buy for him.  It has “Chew Guard Technology” which I am guessing means it’s harder for dogs to rip apart?  That basically means we’ll have it forever since my dogs aren’t huge chewers.

~Planet Dog Eats Chicken & Pumpkin Pot Pie Flavor Treats ($3.32):  I am going to pass along to my brother and SIL and their three dogs!  They get Barkbox as well, but they need treats more than I do and Baxter and Buddy don’t love hard treats so much.

~Bistro Bites Peanut Butter & Applesauce Treats ($6):  Now Baxter and Buddy will love these.  They are tiny and perfect for these two.  And what’s better is that it won’t be horrible when the big boys (L and WB) dish out a few of these at a time.

~Barkworthies Junior Bully Stick ($2.50): I don’t know if I have never read the card on these before or what, but I had no idea they were made out of beef bladder!  The dogs like them though and it’s better for them than rawhides!

All totaled, the December BarkBox has an estimated value of $28.78.  It was more than the monthly cost of the box (which again is $18/month if you subscribe for 6 months or more) and this was probably one of my favorite Barkboxes to date!

    I received this box as well as the medium box (for my girl) this month as I was planning on giving it as a gift, but love it so much that I may have to hit the stores and get Diana’s dogs something else! Shhhhh, don’t tell her! *L*

    I snagged Barkbox through their black Friday deal. My box was full of treats! And a treat ball that the has to roll around to get the treats out. My dog hates it. 🙁

      Really? That is odd!!! I though they were all the same!

    We get the heavy chewer box. No cute reindeer for us!

    1. Jennifer

      Your dogs could destroy that reindeer in seconds.

    My pups got Barkbox for the first time this month – I ordered it when it was on Groupon awhile back. We got the medium sized box – lots of treats! They love most of them so far! One is made out of lamb lung?! They sniffed those for quite awhile before they ate them, but now they’ll eat them!

    I love how your dog sits so nicely by the open box. I brought in the mail yesterday and this box was on the bottom and they sniffed it out right away and were trying to get it open! No posing for me! 🙂

      Lamb lung! Ick! I think my dogs are used to posing with those pet boxes!
