Barkbox Review: January

A couple months ago, I stumbled across BarkBox. I was considering investing in the monthly subscription box but wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend the $18-$29/mo. (depending on the subscription choice). Flash forward a few weeks and it’s like my prayers were heard. Groupon featured a deal for Barkbox and without hesitation, I purchased a 3-month subscription for my spoiled princess, Sheba.
Sheba. Love my dog.
The first BarkBox we received was just in time for Christmas. It was tough doing so, but I saved the contents until Christmas morning. Best dog goodies ever. Needless to say, I’ve been obsessively logging on to track this month’s BarkBox to see when it might arrive. Arriving just a few days ago, here’s a look at what surprises came in January’s BarkBox:
Octopus Rope Toy
This rope toy is unlike typical dog toys. Firstoff, there aren’t any squeakers. The toy is also 100% eco-friendly and chemical-free. This rope toy is supposed to act as doggie dental floss to keep our dogs’ teeth in tip-top condition. Another cool feature is that you can put the toy in water or coat it with something tasty and then place in the freezer for your pup. Giving them a bit of a treat and a toy all in one. Best of all, this Jax and Bones toy (and their others) are machine washable. ($14)
Lamb Toaster Treats
To me, these treats smell like fish food. Awful. But my sense of smell aside, Sheba can’t get enough of these crunchy treats. Made by Superior Farms Pet these treats are 100% natural – grain free and gluten free. Nothing but the best for the dogs in the Barkbox club, mine included! ($8)
Angus Power Bar
Normally I purchase Sheba Pedigree bones to munch on during the day so I was delighted to see a different type of bone to give her in this month’s box. Made by Barkworthies, this natural, 100% all-natural beef bone was devoured (by Sheba) in no time. ($6)
Yumzies Cheese Treats 
This is by far Sheba’s favorite goodie from this month’s Barkbox – and probably mine too based on the name. Manufactured by Nootie, these chicken-based treats are natural, grain-free, and include Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids to support our dogs’ skin and coat. ($8)
If you’re looking to spoil your pup, I highly recommend signing up for BarkBox. You’ll have 3 options to choose from (all including free shipping):
  • $29 (1 month)
  • $23/mo. (3 months)
  • $18/mo. (6 months)
If you’re thinking it might be a little more than you wanted to spend, consider signing up for just one month. Calculating the items in this month’s box, the products individually total almost $40. In my book, it’s worth it. Especially considering you’ll get nothing but the best products for your dog – in both treat and toy form. And they’ll love you even more for it!
