BarkBox’s New Look
May’s BarkBox is “a celebration of all the things we love about being outside.” With lots of thing to chew on, each product represents a different activity we can do to enjoy the springtime. Firstly, BarkBox has a new look! Check it out:
Instead of the shreds of blue paper that used to come inside our BarkBox, we now have the classy, branded paper wrapping our goodies! So fancy! Take a closer look:
March 2013 BarkBox
This month’s BarkBox was pretty great overall, with one little clunker thrown in there. But overall, again, we’re very happy with the goodies we received! First discovery is something we’ve gotten in the past from BarkBox, but were thrilled to get again! Lollycadoodle makes great wool felt toys for pets, and for some reason, of the plushy-type of toys, these have always been Lucy’s favorite.
It’s felt like so long since our last BarkBox, we were starting to get worried that they’d forgotten about us we’d forgotten to renew our subscription! We would have been so devastated to go a month without a box full of doggy-related surprises arriving at our door! When it finally arrived, we stopped being so dramatic and got right down to the nitty-gritty. Here’s the goods:
Clearly, BarkBox knows what our dogs really love – FOOD. First we got N-Bones’ Get Naked Super Antioxidant Dental Chew Sticks. These not only clean your dog’s teeth, but also provide them with nutrients their bodies need to stay healthy. Most other dental chews are just that – teeth cleaning tools that mask bad breath. We New Yorkers love multi-tasking, so these are great to have!
January’s BarkBox was full of old reliables: things that we know make our pups very happy. So, we were very happy to get more of them!
From Jax and Bones, we got this awesome Elton the Octopus toy! Lucy has always loved rope toys, but she tends to destroy them pretty quickly. When she saw this guy, she got very excited!
April 2013 BarkBox
This is our biggest BarkBox yet, literally! When the package arrived, we were shocked at the size and weight of it. I was certain there was an Acadia Antler inside, but that was not the case. We weren’t disappointed though, because what we did find inside made us very happy!
We’re way late with this review of December’s BarkBox – but the holidays got in the way! Nonetheless, we got our December BarkBox and when we opened it, we were somewhat disappointed: only four items?! Boo! But quite the four items they are!
We got a great bag of treats from one of our favorite local NYC bakeries, Bocce’s Bakery! These are their “Holiday Feast” treats which are made with all natural chicken, pumpkin, cranberries and cinnamon – all the flavors we’re used to seeing during our holiday meals! Treats from Bocce’s Bakery always go over well with the pups, so we’re excited to break into these!
It’s time for a new monthly feature here on the blog, and I think we’re going to have a lot of fun with this. A couple of week’s ago, I signed up for a new service called BarkBox. For a certain fee (in my case, $17 per month), you get a monthly delivery of specially chosen products for your dog! You don’t know what you’ll get until each delivery arrives. (Quick note – I was not asked to write a review of BarkBox nor am I receiving anything for doing so, I just thought it would be fun! However, if this is something you’d be interested in joining – you can use myreferral code JOBLY030 and get $5 off your order.) So, let’s play… What’s in my BarkBox?
So the first fun thing about BarkBox is that it actually arrives addressed to your pet. Since I am not home during the daytime, I have packages shipped to me at my office, so me and my coworkers had a huge laugh when Lucy received a package. It comes in a branded box, and they package everything comfortably in paper grass:
Turkey Trail Blazin’ Bitz
It’s finally time to play this month’s “What’s In My BarkBox?” What with all the excitement of Ethel getting adopted and then Toasty getting adopted, everything else sort of got put on hold. But that doesn’t mean we weren’t happy with this month’s BarkBox. Au contraire! We were THRILLED! After seeing what we got this month, you may just want to join up yourselves, and you can do so here and get $5 off your first subscription.
First up, we got some great treats from Feelgood Treat Company. These Turkey Trail Blazin’ Bitz are great for almost all dogs as they’re all organic and natural, and are also wheat, gluten and preservative-free! Since Lucy is allergic to all things poultry, these are staying in my office for all the four legged critters that come in to visit.
September’s BarkBox is here!
And doesn’t it look pretty? All those colors, and toys, and treats. Lucy is one happy girl again this month! And remember, if you want in on BarkBox, click here and you’ll get $5 off when you sign up. First gift out of the box is a brilliant concept that I have never heard of: the Crinkit Toy by Zigoo Pets. Take any run-of-the-mill plastic water bottle, slip it inside this sleeve, and presto! You’ve got an environmentally friendly, and pet safe toy. When the bottle is destroyed, replace it with another one!
It’s BarkBox time! Woohoo! And this one’s a good one! (Don’t forget, if you like Barkbox and want to sign up for yourself, use this link and get $5 off your first subscription!)
We always have some Nature’s Miracle Odor Remover around the house (for those foster dogs who haven’t quite figured out the house training yet), but in this BarkBox, we got their (seemingly new) Freshening Spray.
What’s In My BarkBox!
It’s that time of the month, friends! Let’s play…What’s in my BarkBox?!
The first thing in our BarkBox this month is sort of perplexing to us – Pet Qwerks’ IncrediBubbles.
It’s that time again folks – we get the chance to learn about awesome new products for our pups! So, let’s play…What’s In My BarkBox?!
So one thing I didn’t notice about my BarkBox last month, but did this time around, are the super cute little comic drawings on both the outside and inside of the box. Is this new – does anyone know? The outer comic was something even I could relate to. Have you ever gotten up to go somewhere and when you’ve gotten there, you’ve completely forgotten why you went in the first place?
