As much as the excitement that our beloved pups show with their favorite subscription box; so do we with its review! Here we are with a comprehensive review of 2017- January’s BarkBox for Small Dogs. BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for dogs (large, medium and small dogs). It comes with a variety of options to choose for your subscription, which allows you to decide on the number of months you wish to subscribe for and the type of box depending on your dog size.
BarkBox delivers to the U.S and Canada. We had opted for the annual subscription which is $29 a month. Our little ones are small sized cuddlers- Ted, a Lhasa Apso, aged 1 year and Tess, a Dachshund, aged 3 years. Both dogs await every month’s BarkBox with unceasing excitement. Each box contains toys, treats and pup grooming products (sometimes), which are specifically designed to suit your dog’s size. The fun part is that every month has a theme and the pack’s contents revolve around this particular theme. January’s theme was ‘Pup In The Air’! Every treat and toy within the box was packed and designed bearing this theme in mind (fun right?).
The contents of January BarkBox subscription contained a very interesting info card that read ‘Chewnited States of America’, 2 packs of treats, 2 toys and 1 chew stick. You can check the unboxing of January BarkBox here.
The second pack of treats is like most other regular treats in consistency (the slightly harder ones to chew on). Its ingredients list mentions Fresh Farm Chicken, Pea, Kale and Quinoa. Our dogs are eager for their meal time all the more these days ever since we started mixing these treats with them. This mélange nutrient-enriched treat is not just healthy but is also convincing on the doggy senses because they have a quick but good chew on it. Ted seems to take to this one more and we are guessing it’s his age and non-stop urge to get his teeth into. Either way, we are glad that GMO free, Gluten free, and Grain free features on the back of this pack so we don’t mind too much of these treats at all.
The Crunchy Duck Chew is another delight that Ted enjoyed all to himself, being the busiest chewer he is. It features duck rawhide and those of you who have dogs with sensitive stomachs might want to take this into consideration.
One of the toys is a cute Heavy Duty Suitcase that is made up of sturdy nylon material. It is adorable to watch a dog carrying it by the handle (the ‘aww… that’s so cute’ emotion, just saying). However, as a play toy Tess does not bother this much. Ted on the other hand, is grateful for this yet another savior to soothe his gums and nibbles. When time permits and when Tess manages to keep Ted’s attention away; the squeaking Jet Plane Toy is her new play friend. It is a soft toy and has quite a few parts to grab on while playing fetch.
Like every other month, January’s Barkbox was also a success in our home. Nothing could have been better, except for the chew stick may be (considering dogs with sensitive tummies). Our family loved this fantastic combination and we have already started looking out for what’s in store next.
