Barkbox is a monthly subscription for your favorite four-legged canine(s)! Prices start at 12 months for $20/box, 6 months for $24/box, and 1 month for $29/box. Shipping is always free. SPOILER ALERT: It’s totally worth it!
**Disclaimer** I purchased this box on my own. I received no compensation for my honest review.
Hi again!! Luna & Howie are back again to partake in their second subscription box review. If you want a formal introduction to these two, check them out in the February 2018 Barkbox review. Again, Luna is a 15 lb, 4 year old Shih Tzu mix and Howie is a 50 lb, 1 year old Mutt. These two are professionals when it comes to destroying toys so this was their first box for a ‘heavy chewer’.
This month’s box was Artist themed. And again, I am pleasantly surprised how barkbox composes and comes up with these themes.
The box included multiple print outs, a chew stick, three toys, and two bags of soft chew treats.
The print out went over the artist theme and if you flipped it over, your dog has a spot to create his or her own masterpiece. I’ll save this for next time Luna or Howie runs into the house with muddy paws.
The first toy went by the name of Vincent Van Squirrel. I LOL’d hard at this one. What a cute and squirrelly artist version of Van Gogh. This toy was plushy and contained multiple squeakers. He did not last long in my house. I was little disappointed after having made the upgrade to the heavy chewer box. At least the dogs loved him!
The next toy, Burly Broad Brush, was also plushy but made with a thicker, fire-hose-like material. It had ropes at the end to create the illusion of a paint brush. This one was a bit harder to destroy but eventually, he was conquered too.
And this little guy goes by the name of Felonious Ferdinand. At first glance, he looks unrelated to the artist theme. If you flip the card over there is a description of Ferdinand which says ‘Can your Canine Catch the Crook?’. Apparently Ferdinand is known for stealing art. Your pups goal is to catch and destroy the thief. There was also a fun bit about posting pictures of your dog destroying him with #barkboxday. Pictures of my two crazy pups to follow.
There was one premium buffalo recipe chew stick provided in the box. If you read my February review, you’ll understand why this was not shareable between two pups and will be saved for the next month.
One of the treat bags, Hare of the Dog Rabbit Sliders, is made with rabbit and cranberry. My dogs LOVED these.
The second treat bag, The Great Wave, consisted of soft and chewy cheese and turmeric treats. My dogs also enjoyed these ones.
Now that the box had been opened, Howie was the first pup to try to catch that devious Ferdinand.
Luna is just like, eww, I’m not touching him mom.
She was just way more interested in Van Squirrel.
Poor Van Squirrel. His head was the first thing to go.
My house is beginning to look like a battle ground for toys.
All in all, I will always love Barkbox. I enjoy opening their box every month just as much as my dogs do. And I can’t wait to see what the theme for the next month will be! Luna & Howie will be waiting… :)
