Barkbox – June 2014

Barkbox is a monthly subscription for your dog. Each month, you get a nice selection of treats and a toy (or two) for your dog. The treats are all US or Canadian ingredients and products. Boxes are customized based on dog weight, and if your dog is a destroyer of toys like mine, you can just email and request the aggressive chewer option.

I’d suggest signing up with someone’s referral in order to score 10% off your sub (plus you hook their pup up with an extra box or two!)–unless there is a sale going on! If you sign up now with the code RUCKUS, you’ll get 15% off your sub (good until June 16 at 10 am est, so hurry!)

Barkbox has an amazing discount if ordering multi month options, so with no discount, it can cost anywhere from $18/month to $29/month! I highly recommend paying for as much up front as you can, as it really increases the value of this box.

For reference, I get the Big & Bold box (50+ pounds) with the heavy chewer option.

20140614_123258I barely got this open, and had to do outside with a nutcase (Riley) rushing me along. And as you can see, I could barely get a pictures of the goods laid out without a nose coming to check things out. Riley is the expert in this area, so he helped with my unboxing and review.



The offerings this month included:

  • R2P Monkey Silly Bums $10 – I didn’t even get the tag off (Riley took care of that), and he went nuts over this one. He normally rips stuffy toys to shreds, but this one has survived thus far. There’s a squeaker (YES!) and a crinkly type stuffing. It’s the most ridiculous toy ever, but maybe this headless thing is working for Riley–they normally get ripped off.
  • Benebone Nylon Chew $12 – This thing had me a bit worried at first, since it felt like this one Nylabone we had gotten in the past that Riley annihilated in one sitting. Surprisingly, it’s holding up well and he likes it. Chew bones are always a welcome addition.
  • Green Bark Gummies Hip & Joint Treats $10 – Even though Riley is young, he runs like crazy, so I do like getting treats that are good for his hips and joints. These have the goods with NutriaCHIA, glucosamine, and Chondroitin (we JUST ran out of his other treats for this!). I wasn’t worried, but these also passed the taste test.
  • Benny Bully’s Beef Liver & Banana Treats $8 – These smelled awful to me, but it’s not me that they needed to impress (taste test passed). Healthy treats with a mix I wouldn’t be excited about, but Riley was more than willing to inhale.

This was my (Riley’s) first Barkbox, and I’m extremely happy I went with this box. Looking at past boxes, I knew I’d get some good stuff, and this definitely confirmed that this box amazing! Can’t wait for next month! What did your dog think of this month’s Barkbox?
