Archie’s favorite delivery came the other day and he was all over the box when I brought it into the house. BarkBox is a toy and treat box just for pups. Prices start at $29 per month but go down to $18 if you choose a yearly plan. Shipping to Canada is $5/month. Along with the products part of your subscription cost is donated to dogs in need, so along with fun stuff for your pooch you are also helping out dogs that might not be as pampered as yours. You can select from tiny, small & cute, just right, and big & bold sizes to get a selection of products best suited to your dog. The theme this month is Block Pawty.
The paper has great cartoons and is matched to the theme. Underneath I can see a good mix of things and that picture is a bit sideways because as I’m trying to take it Archie has his nose on it.
The card has another fun cartoon and inside is the list of items and also where to find a pup approved playlist.
Butcher’s Block LLC Beef Pizzle-$3.00
These might be one of Archie’s favorite treats. He gobbles them up really fast though so he might get one every couple of months. If you don’t know a pizzle is dried bull penis. It’s a better alternative them rawhide, most of which is processed and bleached and full of chemicals.
Wagatha’s Maple Bacon Dog Biscuits-$9.00
These are made with organic ingredients and Vermont bacon. They smell mostly of cinnamon and are bone shaped. Archie was waiting at my elbow as I typed this out so that he could have one and his patience was rewarded.
The Crump Group, Inc. Beef Tendersticks-$8.00
These are dog jerky made from beef lungs. We had some lamb lung ones a few boxes ago and those were well liked (by the dogs, I was grossed out touching them) so I think these will also be a hit.
Simply Fido Hot Dog-$11.00
This toy is made from organic cotton, is non-toxic, filled with recycled fibres and is environmentally friendly somehow. It has ropes for tugging and also has a squeaker inside it. It’s a cute way to reinforce the theme.
Delca Corporation Watermelon-$11.00
Another squeaker toy this month. Archie loves his toys and while he will have to wait to play with this one since the girls are asleep already I think he’ll be happy.
This months box was really good for Archie. He got two new toys he likes and two treats and one snack. The value of the box is $42.00 and that’s great. It’s great to go out on a high note. This was our last box from BarkBox and we’ve enjoyed our year of boxes. Archie got a steady stream of tos so he was never without something to chew on and we have a small stockpile of treats for both pups. I did not renew his box, rather I will be trying a new pet box out but I would recommend them if you want a box with a good mix.
