BarkBox - August 2013

Teddy sleeping on his whale toy after playing fetch

This is monthly subscription service for dogs called BarkBox.  It comes in three different sizes and prices range from $19-29 depending on how many months you sign up for.  Get your first box for $5 off by using my link here.  Our dogs received this box free from a giveaway by Everyone Loves a Treasure.  Be sure to drop by and check out her blog!  Included in the August box for dogs under 20  pounds were the following products:
  1. Primal Pet - freeze dried turkey liver treats
  2. Barkworthies - soft hickory meat treats
  3. Quaker Pet Group - whale squeaky toy that only dogs can hear
  4. Barkworthies - ground bully stick flakes to sprinkle on their dinner
  5. The Honest Kitchen - Ice Pups treat mix to freeze in an ice tray or as a warm broth
Our four dogs (two Maltese & two Shih-Tzu) usually like freeze dried treats.  Though they are not fond of soft treats.  They also love bully sticks and they chew on them daily.  We get them from DoggyLoot, the least expensive place I have found to buy them.  It will be interesting to see how they react to the flakes on their dinner.  My dogs reject cold treats that are frozen.  I find mostly puppies like something cold or big dogs.  I'll try it as a broth on top of their dry Solid Gold Hundenflocken kibbles.  We put low sodium chicken broth on top every night along with chicken breast and/or green beans.  Our dogs are always excited to get a new toy and one of them, Teddy, insists on playing fetch daily.  Our dogs like BarkBox the most out of all the dog subscription boxes they have tried.

Included in the March box were the following:

  1. Little Eatz - peanut butter cookies
  2. Feel Good Treats - liver treats
  3. Lolly Cadoddle mouse - handmade by artisans in Nepal made of wool
  4. Harry Barker - bone toy made with eco-friendly fibers, recycled plastics
  5. Angie's List - doggie bag bone container and discount code "BARK 45" for 45% off
I gave the Little Eatz cookies to the SPCA since they have wheat in them and one of my four dogs can't have wheat, it makes him sick.  My dogs eat the Feel Good Treats only when they see that I'm not giving them anything better.  My dogs really prefer my handmade dog cookies and you can find the recipes on this blog here. They played with the mouse and the bone a little bit, but I had a blast scaring my hubby by throwing the mouse at him and screaming "mouse".   It's really hard to scare him, so that was fun.  Since my dogs have a ton of toys after buying nine of these boxes and since I make their dog treats, we decided to give it a break for now.  This is their favorite dog subscription box though and they highly recommend it.  What's your favorite dog subscription box?
