BarkBox Review ~ Box #1

I'm sure you are familiar with at least one of the monthly box subscription services that are out there these days. I have a Birchbox subscription that I'm happy with for the most part (except this month - one of my sample leaked and there was none left to try!).  I have a friend on Facebook who really likes BarkBox so with the new puppy addition, I decided to check it out.

It is a little pricey, as far as subscriptions go, but with a quick search for a coupon code I decided it was worth a shot.  I signed the pups up for a 3 month Large/XL Dog subscription and with the coupon code got an extra month free.  Total cost was $72, divided by 4 = $18 per box.  Not bad!

Our 1st box arrived over the weekend. It was a nice surprise because I had forgotten about it! And oddly enough, I received the shipment notification AFTER I received the box.  But whatever. It came as promised.

The two stuffed toys you see are really nice. They are not cheap dollar-store like toys.  The green is a long caterpillar with several squeaky things throughout. The ladybug makes a crinkle sound when chewed on - the puppy especially likes this one.  Both like the Did You Know Carrots treats though the biscuits are really small. My 110lb Shepherd probably just swallows them so I've mostly been giving them to Kimber. We haven't opened the lamb treats yet but having bought similar treats in the past, I know they will be liked as well. To the very right, there's a chew stick - Gunner will enjoy that soon.

Overall, I'm very happy with our first box and I think the pups would give it a thumbs up too.  If I bought those items individually in the store, I would have spent well over $18. And it's nice to know I don't need to buy any new toys for the next three months because of our BarkBox delivery!
