It is always fun to be back with our favorite dog subscription box review! Here we are, the excited dog parents of Max with BarkBox Subscription Box review for July 2017. Max is our little furry child, 1 year of Daschund. He is all fun, waggy tails and drools. We adore him and love pampering him with dog goodies and treats. We have been particular to always gift him only the best we can find and for this, we couldn’t think of anything other than BarkBox. It has been our favorite dog subscription for the excellent quality and service they provide.
If you are new to BarkBox, a little introduction to it may be helpful for you. BarkBox is a monthly dog subscription box service that ships to the U.S and Canada. They send goodies of 5 to 6 items each month in a box that includes dog treats, dog toys, grooming products, dog chews, etc. Every month has a cute theme that all be followed along the goodies sent. This is adorable to cherish as memories in your journey with your pet. The box comes at $19 per month if you subscribe for an annual subscription and $29 per month for a monthly subscription. There are different plans and they can be stopped or changed anytime as well.
BarkBox allows the customers to choose the box to suit their dog size. This makes it easy to receive products that will match the dog’s teeth (toys are the best example!). ‘Small and Cute’ (0-20 pounds), ‘Just Right’ (20-50 pounds), and ‘Big and Bold’ (50+ pounds); this is the size scale. BarkBox also has a special Super Chewer Box option for the mighty warriors who just can’t help but boast their teeth power! They come as ‘Small but Mighty’ (0 to 20 pounds), ‘Middle Weight’ (20 to 50 pounds), and ‘Large and in Charge’ (50 plus pounds). The items on Super Chewer Box are designed to be more durable and last a little longer (hopefully). All products sent are made in the U.S or Canada alone. They are tested for quality strictly.
The July 2017 Small Size Dog BarkBox had a very memorable theme (for me!). It read ‘A Lick in Wonderland’. This has been a personal favorite, so receiving pet goodies made it special. The information card and toys had something related to the Alice in Wonderland story and we enjoyed it. However, Max didn’t care much about the theme. He is a toy person, who loves to hang out chewing (but not aggressively). He loves his treats too and manages an occasional theft if they are too appetizing.
The first bag of treats that we opened for Max this month was Lola’s Lamb Jerky. Max loves lamb, so we expected how he would react for this. He loved it thoroughly! We had to take some extra safety measures as theft control to keep him away. The chewy lamb morsels in this treat are soft. The treat comes n strips that are soft and easy to break. They are just perfect for Max as a reward or treat. Training sessions with these are impatient so we opt it out. They are safe for your dog’s tummy since they are corn-free and wheat-free. They also do not contain any preservatives or fillers. They are made in the U.S and your dog will enjoy them!
My Doggy Beef and Potato Treats was the second bag of treats this month. And again, we had a tough time to control Max. Beef happens to be his second favorite so we had to give in to his whims for more. These are small bite-size treats that are easier while training. They had a cute paw print on the top which Max didn’t care about. They are nutritious with their protein content and potato adds a lifting flavor to the beef we hope. This is also made in the U.S and is free from additives, preservatives, fillers, wheat, soy, and grain. Max approves of this and recommends to fellow pup friends out there!
The chew for this month is Rabbit Chew and Max surprisingly seemed to enjoy it. He is usually not fond of new types of bone or chews for that matter. He does get the liberty of tasting the chews on BarkBox once a while and this time he enjoyed it. Not for long though!
SquekleDee and SqueakleDum
This two-sided Tweedledee and Tweedledum plush toy for some reason aggravates Max. It has a rubber, spiky ball on the bottom to help pop while playing and it puts up quite a fight with Max. It is durable and fluffy and sadly went to rags after a month of wrestling Max’s teeth.
Squeak Me Sweet Treat
The second toy for July is super cute that even Max spared his teeth from it. It looks like a fluffy piece of cake with a cherry on top. There is one squeaker inside it and Max used it gently for his fetch lessons.
That is the end of BarkBox July 2017 Subscription for Small Dogs review. All the goodies were a hit and special thanks for the choice of meat this month! We have been regular subscribers of BarkBox and will continue to be so. Hope you liked the review. Catch you next month!
