BarkBox Dog with Toy
BarkBox Monthly Box
BarkBox Dog Chews


Dog subscription box services are a growing trend, and a great solution to having plenty of toys, treats and health items on hand for your dog delivered to your door each month.

BarkBox is the leader of the monthly dog box pack in both sales and name recognition. This company lives up to the hype with high-quality, reliable products that deliver canine satisfaction. They've had over 2 million pups subscribe and best of all, they're among the least expensive services you'll find.

BarkBox has fun themed boxes. Each box contains 2 innovative toys, 2 all-natural bags of treats and a chew centered around a theme. And if your pup doesn't love an item, they'll send a free replacement.

Does your dog tear through any toy in 2 seconds?


BarkBox also offers a Super Chewer box option that's backed by a 100% guarantee if the toys aren't tough enough. It comes with 2 tough and fluff-free toys, 2 full-size treat bags and 2 all-natural meaty chews.

What is the Quality of the Items?

BarkBox doesn't skimp on premium products.

All the treats are 100% corn, wheat, soy or by-product free. They chose quality companies that used high-quality ingredients to produced the treats.

The toys looked fun and proved durable. These aren't your average cheap stuffed toys. They are interactive and engaging.

The BarkBox Short Review

How Does Barkbox Work?

BarkBox allows you to set up a subscription package that fits your dog. They ask for the dog's size: from small – under 20 pounds; medium – 20 to 50 pounds; and large – 50+ pounds. This way, they can tailor the toy to their four-legged customer.

They also only send treats free from corn, wheat, soy or by-product to ensure most allergy dogs are safe. However, if your dog has a specific allergy to beef, chicken or turkey, they can accommodate this as well if you contact them.

If you order a subscription, the company will renew your order and bill you by the 3rd of the following month. BarkBoxes are then shipped on the 15th of the month.

If you find a toy or treat you just have to reorder, and you don't think the BarkBox fillers will read your mind, you can also shop for it via their BarkShop website. This site also gives you a pretty good idea of what kind of toys you will get in your BarkBox.

Are the Items Made in the USA?

Not everything in the box is American made. BarkBox sources all their treats from the USA and Canada. The chews are sourced from the USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand.

Their toys, hygiene and grooming products are sourced from around the world. However, BarkBox commits that all of their office testers approve all box contents by trying it on their own pets first.

Who is the Best BarkBox Fit?

BarkBox is best suited to busy people, such as myself, who don't always have time to get out to a specialty pet store and buy treats and toys each month. If you want something to spoil your dogs a little more without taking an extra trip, this is a great service.

BarkBox is also perfect for dogs that need variety in their lives and like to try different treats and toys. If your dog gets bored easily, BarkBox will always offer them something new and exciting each month.

Ordering and Shipping

Overall, I found the ordering process to be clear, with plenty of email follow up, package tracking and support along the way. Their website is also very user-friendly, complete with plenty of dog puns for an entertaining read.

We only had to wait about four days from when we ordered our box to when it arrived via our friendly UPS man. There was no additional shipping cost, although if you order outside of the 48 contiguous states they will charge you an additional $5 for shipping.

You can also reorder items that your dog loves and can even send those orders via text message from your phone. You can even use their phone app to reorder.

Should You Sign up For BarkBox?

If you want to spoil your pup, but don't want to rummage through a pet store toy bin or grab treats off shelves every month, then BarkBox is for you! If your dog gets easily bored with the same treats and toys month after month, then BarkBox is definitely for your dog!

Overall, this company works hard to offer premium toys and treats at a great price. Going to any big-box pet store, you would easily spend more than you did on the box to get the same high-quality contents they offer.
