Surprisingly I received my BarkBox pretty early this month. The theme for March is Movie Night, and the themed treat and toy are both ridiculously adorable (as they always are).
BarkBox is $29/month if you do the month-to-month plan, but it goes down to only $18/month if you sign up for the whole year! We sprung for the whole year since it was such a great deal. Before getting BarkBox we were probably dropping between $30 to $50 a month at pet stores, and now one box usually lasts us through the month. You can use my link for 10% off any subscription. And if you use my link, they’ll donate a free box to the Bark-N-Rest Retirement Center! It’s a great cause and I’m pleased that BarkBox gives back to the doggie community!
You can choose different sizes when you order, and we get the Large box (for dogs over 50 lbs). Even though Maddie is about 46 lbs, she has the energy and strength of a much larger dog so we always size up for toys.
Butcher’s Block Bones The Dynamo | $5.19
Always glad to get a chew in each box. This bone is really heavy since it’s filled with marrow instead of being hollow like the cheaper stuff, which I am impressed by. The bone is from younger and healthy cattle, which makes it less likely to splinter and injure your dog. Even though the website says this is for small to medium dogs, it’s definitely large enough for Maddie. As always, it’s 100% from USDA beef for peace of mind.
Healthy Dogma Bacon Hearts | $5.00
Love the super cute packaging on this! I always have to give props to the BarkBox design team for their creativity. These treats are full of Omega-3 fatty acids and lean protein, and there’s no corn, wheat, or soy. In fact, the entire ingredients list is so wholesome: peas, pea flour, potato, bacon, tapioca, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), cranberry, and sweet potato. That’s it!
BarkMade Flexi Dog Bowl | $6.00
At first I was a little disappointed in the size of this bowl, since it’s definitely not for a large dog. But then I realized I can use it for making frozen treats or baking homemade treats since it’s oven and freezer safe, and got really excited. It’s also dishwasher safe, which is a big plus for me. Definitely something I’ve been meaning to buy for a while and now I don’t have to!
Pet Qwerks Pawpcorn Toy | $7.50
So cute!! It’s made exclusively for BarkBox to fit this month’s theme. The bottom part is filled with crinkle paper and has a squeaker, and the top part is filled with regular stuffing. I’m guessing it won’t hold up for very long since it’s not designed to be a chew toy and Maddie sees all her toys as chew toys….
Nature’s Bits Salmon Recipe | $6.99
Each month BarkBox includes at least a full sized bag of dog treats, and they like to switch up the flavors and brands, which I really like. I’ve never heart of Nature’s Bits before but Maddie loves these soft baked salmon treats. It’s 100% made and sourced in the USA and has a short ingredients list with salmon being the first ingredient. They don’t use any artificial colors or flavors and are grain/gluten free. The ingredients list: salmon, peas, potatoes, potato starch, pea fiber, cane molasses, strawberries, sweet potatoes , chicken fat (preserved with citric acid and mixed tocopherols), natural flavor, green tea extract, rosemary extract. Short and simple!
Total value for March is $30.68, which is a bit lower than usual but still decent enough. I only wish they had 2 toys each month instead of just 1. But otherwise I’m happy with their consistent formula of 1 chew, 1-2 bag(s) of treats, 1 toy, and 1 misc item. I do love their themes and think they make the cutest stuff out of all the pet boxes out there. Can’t wait to see if they’ll do an Easter one for April! Anything for Spring would be so cute!
