So today I have something a bit different, Barkbox! I’ve always wanted to get this for my dog, Spencer, but never took the plunge for some reason. When I saw a Groupon deal for a 3 month subscription, I figured this would make the perfect Christmas gift for a very spoiled dog.
Simply Fido Organic Toy– This is a cute holiday reindeer, and I love that it’s organic. I couldn’t find this exact one online, but based on what I saw, I’d guess the value on this is about $6-$8.
GoDog Blue Bully Yeti ($10.50)- This toy is hysterical, and it’s got a nice big squeaker. According to GoDog, it’s got “Chew Guard Technology.” One of Spencer’s favorite past times is killing squeakers, so we will see about that. It does feel pretty sturdy for a plush, though, and the squeaker seems strong.
Planet Dog Eats in Chicken and Pumpkin Pot Pie ($9.95)- I love that these treats are all natural and have very simple ingredients. I was worried Spencer wouldn’t like these, he is a treat snob and typically if I buy him fancy/organic/bakery style treats he will not touch them. But he scoffed this up and came back begging for more.
Bistro Bites Treats in Peanut Butter and Applesauce ($7)- These are nice small treats that are great for training. The ones I got are medium size, they also sell a small size treat, but the mediums were pretty small to begin with. These are made in the USA, natural, and Spencer loved ’em.
Barkworthies Junior Bully Stick ($3.15)- (Not pictured because Spencer snatched this out of the box like a maniac.) I have never bought bully sticks before, just because they sound gross to me. But Spencer is clearly a fan, despite the fact that it smelled like a barnyard. This is made with 100% beef bladder (yuck.) and supposed to be long lasting. Spence destroyed it in about 5 minutes, and he is a very slow eater.
This first box was definitely a hit with Spencer and myself! I think it is a great value, and a great way for Spencer to try things I wouldn’t have bought on my own. Plus, I probably would have spent at least this month on toys and treats over the course of the month, anyway.
