BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for dogs. Each monthly box contains a combination of 4-6 treats, toys, and hygiene products that have been hand selected and approved by Scout (the dog), head product tester for BarkBox. All treats included in the boxes are sourced from the USA and Canada, and chews are sourced from the USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand, so you can be assured that your pet is only getting safe, high-quality items. Boxes can be customized based on the size of your pet (I get the Small box for the furries) and you can add an additional toy to your box for an extra $9/month. We have been getting BarkBox for ages and have always been satisfied with them.
BarkBox ships via DHL Global Mail (starts out with DHL and is delivered by the Post Office) and took just a few days to arrive this month. I generally expect it to arrive on or around the 20th of the month.
BarkBox does great themes, but I can’t always guess what they are. I had no idea what I was looking at when I opened this one up.
Turns out the September 2015 BarkBox theme was “Bedtime Story” and included the following:
~PetSafe Indigo Fresh Floss ($2): The information card valued this at $7, but since you can buy a bag of 5 for $9.99, I am valuing it at $2. I think these types of bones that help with fresh breathe and clean teeth are great, but I just can’t get my dogs to chew on them. I will give this to one of my brothers dogs who will like it though.
~Wagatha’s Beddy Bye Biscuits ($2.74): The prices were all over the place on this one too. The information card valued it at $9, but you can get a 16oz. box for $10.95 and this is only 4oz.? Maybe they are figuring in shipping (I never include shipping) in their calculation as well? Anyway, these treats are made with green tea and ginger and wheat, corn and soy free.
~PureBites Freeze Dried Beef Liver (2oz) ($3.74): The information card lists these at $8, but I used the Amazon price of $3.74. These don’t smell so hot, but I usually assume with dog treats the worse they smell, the better they taste.
~Hyper Pet Dura Squeaks ($5.49): This is a floating squeaker toy for dogs. It made of rubber and there is no way my dogs are going to be able to tear this one apart. It’s sturdy!
~Simply Fido Frog Prince ($10): This is adorable! And also, one of the few products in this box that reminds me of bedtime.
All totaled I came up with a value of $23.97 for the September 2015 BarkBox. The items in the box were nice and high-quality, but I thought the value was really low this month for BarkBox. It’s usually close to, or slightly more than the $29/month cost of the box.
