Boxes are curated around a theme and options are available for different sized dogs. More importantly, if your pup has special needs or tastes, you can drop Barkbox a note and they will be sure to accommodate you. My pug Pia cannot eat beef, chicken, or gluten. She will get terrible ear infections if we fall off the diet wagon. I told Barkbox it’s ok to send some things she can’t have since Artie has no restrictions, but they are still very careful to include only things they can both enjoy. That says so much about them as a company!
With the start of the Olympics just days away (wooohoooo! I cannot wait!) it’s no surprise that Barkbox chose the Olympics as this month’s theme. As usual, they did an excellent job with curation!
Let’s look closer at everything! We’ll start with snacks:
These Terra Freeze dried treats have just one ingredient and are made in the USA. (What’s with the fuzzy photos? Someone should really teach me how to use my camera.) I’m not sure lamb treats are terribly Olympic themed on their own, but that bag screams GO TEAM USA!!! So nice job making that work Barkbox.
These Chloe’s Cricket Protein treats are shaped like stars which obviously supports Team USA too! They’re grain free and made in the USA so I can feel good about feeding them to both pups.
Artie is really excited to find this made in the USA pig ear chew. Pia sometimes gets to eat salmon skins but Artie doesn’t like them. Instead he can have this ear. (Ew. So glad I’m not a dog.)
I nearly died laughing when I saw this Greco-Roman wrestler in the box. So perfect for the Olympic theme. It squeaks and was a big hit with Artie.
He was throwing it and chasing it around the room. This was the best photo I could snag since he was having so much fun!
So clearly, I’m a human and not a dog. I thought this olive wreath (nice nod to the original Olympics, Barkbox!) was a cute prop to torture your dog with:
But it is actually a squeaky toy also. Who knew! Pia much preferred playing with it than wearing it. She looks awfully cute though!
It wouldn’t be an Olympic themed box without a first place medal now, would it? Nope. I love that it says World Chompians. Barkbox is so punny.
As always, this box was adorably well curated. My pups loved this box, especially the wrestler!
I’m impressed every month with Barkbox. Both dogs seem to really love the toys, they alwasy pull Barkbox toys from Toy Mountain before any of the others. I definitely recommend this sub if you want to spoil your fur-baby.
