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, and you can add an extra 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 such an amazing job with their themes each month. Everything fits together perfectly from the information card to the products to the interior packaging paper.
The April 2018 BarkBox theme was “Bark Beard’s Treasure: A Pirate’s Tail.” Our Small BarkBox included the following items:
~Merv the Squirmaid King for Dogs ($12): Merv has a Crinkle fin, a squeaker inside, and a full head of fuzzy hair. My dogs don’t appreciate how cute this is, but they did love it!
~Clam Overboard! ($12): The Crazy Crinkle shell is lined in long fluff and contains two squeaky, removable pearls. My dogs have finally figure out toys like this and enjoy the challenge.
~Yo! Ho! Ho! Pawrates Bounty (~$10): These treats are made out of real bacon & beef and are grain-free. They are soft and chewy, and I don’t think that my Shorkie (Bella) has ever jumped so high to try and get these when I opened up the package.
~Backstrap Chews (~$2): We haven’t dug into these yet, but my dogs are in desperate need of some new chews, so the timing is amazing!
~Merpups Pearls (~$10): These are soft and chewy and are made with real chicken. The small size makes them great for training!
~BarkBeard’s Bandana (~$10): I wouldn’t say that Buster was excited to put this on, but he sure looks great!
All totaled I came with an estimated value of $56 for my April 2018 BarkBox. I did a lot of estimating, but it’s clearly a fantastic value!
