Back in April Klaus got a chance to try out BarkBox for the first time. He was in loooove. (Check out the first post here!) He’s always been super into toys, unlike the cats, so it’s really fun to buy him presents. Needless to say, I was stoked for another opportunity to work together. Klaus even dressed up for the occasion.
In case you’re not familiar, let’s do a quick run down of what BarkBox is and what they offer; BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for dogs of all sizes (boxes are tailored to your pup’s size!) Each box comes with two bags of treats, one chew, and two toys. The best part, in my opinion, is that everything is tied together with a theme. All treats are always wheat, corn, and soy free. BarkBox is billed monthly, and decreases in price if you commit to 6 or 12 month plan. You also have the option to join the Extra Toy Club (an upgrade so you get three toys instead of the standard two!) for an additional $9 per month. The first box ships right away and subsequent boxes ship on the 15th of each month. They also have the really rad guarantee that if your dog doesn’t like something from the box, they’ll send you something they’ll love for free!
I’m going to be real with you here for a second, I was a little disappointed when I first opened the box and didn’t see any pumpkins or skulls. That’s really what I was excepting from a Halloween box, ya know? Then I thought about it a second and realized, HOLY COW, this theme is a thousand times better. Making toys based on items dogs are afraid of is so clever. Anyone can throw together a box of treats and toys to ship to you each month but BarkBox really really goes the extra mile with their ideas. It’s just so thought out! They’re not just giving you a theme, it’s a story!
If you sign up in October, you’ll receive the ‘Household Horror’ box, similar to the one shown here! In our box was ‘rain of terror‘ which is a cloud that housed two rain drop toys inside. (I love toys inside of toys! It’s basically a three for one. Multi-part toys are fairly common in Barkboxes.) As well as a firecracker, and a tombstone toy. Klaus is terrified of both fireworks and thunderstorms in real life but when they’re cute and have squeakers inside he couldn’t l0ve them more. That pile of toys he’s sitting in in the photo below? He gathered those all himself. I melllllllt!
We seriously couldn’t love BarkBox more in this house. Jeff loves opening the box with Klaus. Klaus obviously loves getting presents. The cats enjoy trying to steal treats, and I just love watching it all go down. I’m a huge fan of BarkBox, and how much love they put into each box, I think you will be too! So, bury the bone and the hatchet with the mailman by getting a BarkBox, they’re running a pretty rad limited time offer that ends 11/2!
