Happy July 1st!! It’s officially the start of my birthday month today, so to kick it off I’m going to tell y’all about the new box I’ve subscribed to! Along with the Ring Boxes subscription that I just started, I also signed up for BARKBOX!! I decided that my sweet babygirl, Bella, was ready to start getting a subscription box of her own.
I came across a promo for a $5 box and that was too good of a deal to pass up. I ended up signing my puppy up for the 12 month box because in the end the pricing was better and she deserves to get new toys every month (by the time we get a new box, the toys will be eaten).
Barkbox is a monthly subscription box just for dogs. Each box has 4-6 dog products and is customized to the size of your pup, plus there is a new, cute theme every month. Bella is a cairn terrier that I adopted from the shelter as a puppy, so I chose the “Small & Cute” size (0-20lbs). You can choose to just buy 1 month for $29, 6 months for $25/box or 12 months for $21/box.
This was my first time getting the box and the theme was: #POOYORKCITY
Here is a BREAKDOWN of the goodies in my box:
- Butcher’s Block Bones 6” Krunchie Trachea – Value = $3.00
A delicious, 100% quality beef treat from Omaha, Nebraska. Made in the USA and is made from USDA inspected meat. These treats are low fat and all natural. I felt that that was a little large for my Bella so this went straight to my brother’s dog, a Shar-Pei/Lab mix we got from the shelter. This special treat also comes in a 9” version. Kodiak, my brother’s dog absolutely loved this and is still working on it.
- No Grainers NYC Jerky Chews in Roasted Duck – Value = $8.00
Made in the USA and gluten free (if you’re into that for your dog). As soon as I opened the bag, Bella was all up in my business trying to see what I was going to give her. Kodiak loved these too and he’s pretty picky about what kind of treats he’ll eat!
- Lady Liberty Ball (Small) – Value = $8.00
Who doesn’t love a little Lady Liberty in their lives? I mean how much more New York can you get? This is a spiky ball covered in durable plush with a squeaker in the middle. My girl Bella has already chewed about half of the crown off of Lady, so I had to hide it from her for a while (she really has problem with toys). This also comes in a larger size for a bigger dog.
- Best Treats Ever: Turkey & Duck Strips –Value = $7.00
These succulent strips are entirely farmed and made in the USA. They are all natural and gluten free. You can buy them in nugget form for your smaller dog. I got the strips in my box, but I ripped the treat in half and gave each half to the dogs. They both devoured it as though they hadn’t seen food in weeks (not true, they both eat 2 meals daily).
- Andi’s Famous Plush Dumplings –Retail Value = $16.00
Chinese takeout for your dog!!! These are a Bark & Co Original and each of the 3 smiling plush dumpling toys is stuffed with a sturdy squeaker. They are delivered in a plush, crinkly carryout carton. I’m a little afraid to give this to Bella since I know that the moment I turn my back all 3 dumplings will disappear.
The value of this month’s box is $42. Since I got this box as a promo, it was only $5. For the price of my box this month, I thought it was a really great value. Bella and Kodiak get to try out new treats, Bella gets to destroy a new toy every month, and I don’t have to go to the pet store for any of that! It’s literally a win-win for all of us!
The box automatically renews each month, but it’s super easy to cancel at any time. You can subscribe to Barkbox through my referral link here.
