There are a few dog goodie subscription boxes on the market today. The trend started with BarkBox though. BarkBox was founded in 2011 and, while having options is nice, BarkBox has had the longest time to perfect their box just for your dog. And that they did.
BarkBox is a box of surprise goodies for your dog that arrive on your doorstep every month. Every BarkBox comes with at least 2 original toys only available through BarkBox, 2 all-natural bags of treats, and a chew all curated to match each month’s uniquely-themed collection. They pick the best US/Canadian made treats and innovative toys to match a dog’s unique needs, including allergies.
BarkBox allows you to choose how long you’d like to be receiving the boxes and of course the longer you subscribe the cheaper the boxes. 12 months will cost $21 per box, 6 months will cost $25 per box, and a single box purchase is $29. All orders come with free shipping.
You tell them the size of dog you have and whether there are any food allergies (for the treats). They can even cater to you if your dog is abusive to their toys!
Here are a few, perhaps more important, benefits:
1) It gives your pup a reason to look forward to seeing the postal worker as opposed to hunting him or her down. Don’t be surprised if there is more tail wagging and less barking when the doorbell rings.
2) 10% of the revenue from BarkBox goes to local rescues and shelters across the United States. Your monthly subscription, which can be as low as $19 per month for six months, not only adds a little spice (or should we say treat?) to your dog’s life but also helps other pups in need.
3) For sensitive tummies, it is good to know BarkBox is moving toward limited, if not single, ingredient products. Scout and his team choose minimally processed treats; no glycerin whenever possible; wheat, gluten, soy, corn, filler-free whenever possible; and organic whenever possible.
4) If your pup doesn’t totally love an item in their BarkBox, they will send them a replacement for FREE! No muss, no fuss, no disappointed pups.
