Barkbox - September 2017 | Blog My Backlog


What is BarkBox?: BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for your favorite pupper. Each box includes five items, two toys, two bags of treats, and a chew. You tell them the size of your pupper and how you want to pay, and then you decide if you want to spend an extra $9/box for an extra toy! It's divided into three sizes, so Trumpet fits nicely in the middle category as 'Just Right.'

How Much is BarkBox?: If you want no commitments, cancel anytime, the box is $29/month. A three-month commitment brings it down to $25/month. Six months is $23/month (billed up-front as $138) and a one-year commitment is $20/month but you get to pay monthly! You get free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada, but there is sales tax applied to certain states. 


Look at those eyes, the eyes of an only child. Poor boy isn't an only child anymore. <3



Theme card.


Party Tricks 101 ($8.00) - These are cheesy so no meat, meaning that it's less likely to irritate your pupper's allergies (new pupper has at least one allergy so I'm paying far more attention to it than before). These aren't hard so we kept them in the house, but they aren't so soft that they fall apart in our treat jar. 


Bad Chad ($12.00) - Doesn't this remind you of a jerky frat guy from college? He's sooooooo cool. Anyways, I like the size of this toy. It's big enough that the pupper wouldn't kill it too soon without being so big he wouldn't play with it.


Frat House Lamb-da Strips ($8.00) - Bahaha, I love this pun. I also like the treats, they're a good size and Trumpet enjoys them. 


Bark Pong Champion ($10.00) - I got a huge giggle out of this. This is good to keep Trumpet distracted for a while, especially if I keep track of the balls and keep putting them back in the cup. Absolutely a good toy.


Beef Jerky Treats ($6.00) - Trumpet tore these up like they were made of air. I broke them in half to make them last longer because he usually doesn't get treats this big, but he was still happy to have them.


Overall, I loved this box. The value was $44.00 but it is all based on BarkBox's pricing so take it at what you will. I think the number of items you get in the box definitely make it worth my money and I'm actually considering getting the Super Chewer box for when new pupper gets a little older. The theme was adorable and all of the items were perfect, so it was a complete win in this house.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
