Second Bark Box

Disclosure: ABC received a free Bark Box in exchange for this post. Affiliate links are attached.

Today we received our second Bark Box and ABC were just as excited this time. We all gathered around on the floor to open it and discover the fun things inside. There was lots of tail wagging and sniffing going on as I took each item out of the box.

In this Bark Box, we received four different types of treats, all of which were made in the USA. This is very important to me as most recalled treats are made in other countries. These treats are also all natural and grain free. ABC might not realize this, but they love the variety of flavors and different types of treats from soft to crunchy!!

We also received three toys in this box – two squeaker toys and one baby carrot and treat dispensing toy. One of the squeaker toys is called Carly the Bearded Lady and I personally think she’s a little scary (luckily the boys don’t know that). Unlike most squeaker toys, you shake this one to get it to make its noise.  I can tell that these toys are well made, durable, and will last a long time! The toys from our first Bark Box are still going strong!

Coby is a carrot lover so I was so excited to introduce him to the carrot dispensing toy. Just as I thought, it kept him busy and he enjoyed every bite of his carrot. This toy will be handy for an active puppy who enjoys chewing.

As you remember from my first Bark Box post, Bark Box is a mail order subscription that comes directly to your home. You can order one month at a time or receive a larger discount by ordering 3 or more months at a time. For more information and discounts, please visit my links below.  If you have any questions, please ask!

BarkBox Update

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Well, it’s been 13 days since we received our first BarkBox and I wanted to share how impressed I am with the quality of the toys. My dogs, especially Artie and Coby, are very determined to break open toys to get to the squeaker inside. After 13 days, that hasn’t happened with these toys AND the squeakers inside still work.

The toys after 13 days!!!!

Just before getting our BarkBox, I went to a local pet store and bought a toy. Within 2 hours, they had the toy broken opened, stuffing everywhere, and the squeaker broken. That’s not to say that all pet store toys are made cheaply, but you get what you pay for. If you buy an inexpensive toy, it’s not going to last long. If you pay a little more, the toy will last longer!

Pet store toy after less than 2 hours.

So, my point is, take a look at BarkBox and BarkShop. BarkBox is a monthly subscription. For more information see my June 21 blog post. BarkShop is an online store where you can buy the individual toys, treats, etc. The links to both BarkBox and BarkShop are below. Be sure to use my links to get discounts!

ABC’s First BarkBox

Disclosure: I received a free BarkBox in return for my honest opinion on the products. The blog post contains affiliate links. Your purchase will help ABC purchase new bones 🙂

The other day we got our first BarkBox! BarkBox is a monthly box of goodies just for dogs!!! Each box contains 4-6 treats, toys, and occasional hygiene/grooming products. A great deal of thought and research goes into each monthly BarkBox. They use only the best quality toys and treats. The toys are high quality, durable, and well-made. All treats are sourced from the USA and Canada, and chews are sourced from the USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand.

BarkBox can be ordered each month or as a 3, 6, or 12 month plan. The more months you sign up, the less expensive the boxes. Pricing is as follows:

Twelve month plan = $228! This breaks down to $19 per BarkBox.

Six month plan = $126. This breaks down to $21 per BarkBox.

Three month plan = $72. This breaks down to $24 per BarkBox.

One month plan = $29 per month

The more you order – the more you save!!! Shipping is free for subscriptions of 3, 6, or 12 months. There is a $5 shipping fee for monthly orders. Just another reason to order 3 or more months! Although, you can use my link below to receive free shipping on a one month plan. 

There is also a BarkShop where you can purchase individual treats, toys, and other accessories. If you receive a toy or treat your dog really loves, visit the shop to buy another. Shipping from BarkShop is a $5 flat rate or free with order of $25 or more.

We’ve had our BarkBox since Thursday (4 days) and so far I am very pleased with the toys and the treats. The toys are very sturdy and well-made. Artie, Buddy, and Coby have been playing with them a lot and they still look brand new. Earlier this week I bought a cheap toy from a pet store and the dogs had it torn apart with stuffing everywhere in less than two hours. I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for! You may pay a little more for BarkBox toys, but they are worth the extra cost. Below are the three toys we received, all of which squeak.

We also received three different treats all made in the USA, which pleases me greatly! We got some Peanut Butter Pocket Trainers, Crunchy Duck + Sweet Potato Premium Chew Bar, and Cocomut Brownies. The chew bar was one big hard bar, and it wasn’t easy to break into three pieces, but ABC enjoyed it and it kept them busy. They also like the pocket trainers treats which have peanut butter, Chia, blueberries, and cranberries for anti-oxidant support. The Cocomut Brownies are free from wheat, corn, soy, meat products, egg, dairy, salt, sugar, and preservatives. They are made by the Lazy Dog Cookie Company which prides itself on using all natural products from the USA.

I am extremely pleased with our first BarkBox and I would definitely recommend it. We all know how much fun it is to receive packages in the mail for ourselves. Imagine getting a package full of goodies for your canine baby!!! It is so much fun and exciting for the human and the dog. I highly suggest you give BarkBox a try!!!
