BarkBox – December 2013


Today with excitement we met the mail carrier at the door for Ranger’s second BarkBox delivery. I think Ranger knew what was in the box before we even opened the door because he was VERY excited.

You can sign up by the month, 3 month, or 6 month package. Obviously the more you get, the cheaper each month. I did the six month package and remember that they renew automatically. Plus, each month there are different codes you can put in to get a cheaper deal.

This month use code BARKFRIDAY to get $12 off a 6-month subscription. That’s only $17.00 per month!! Just go to 


Every box comes with a card outlining what delicious and fun goodies are inside. This box looks like it has some fun items and they must smell good because Ranger needed a sit-stay to keep him away for me to take the pictures.

Item: Barkworthies Bully Sticks


There is nothing Ranger like more than a good chew and bully sticks are the cream of the crop. With no chemicals or preservatives, this beef bladder chew was a big hit and even though we were waiting until Christmas to give him his goodies, he got this within a day of arrival.

Item: LICKS Liquid Vitamins Zen Treat for Dogs


These all natural packets are made in the US and recommended for anxiety, poor mood, or aggressive behaviour. They promote a 98% absorption rate as opposed to 20%(pills) and 30%(powders and chews). It takes 30-60 minutes to start working and I may try these on our next longer road trip as Ranger still gets pretty drooly and unhappy.

Item: Hare of the Dog (Rabbit with Red Apple and Dandelion) Dog Treats


Ranger hasn’t had a lot of treats with rabbit as a main ingredient, but these wheat-free treats that are ingredient-sourced and made in the USA certainly look good. They are supposed to wait until Christmas morning, but we tried one out. Instead of crunching it up right away, he took it to his bed and gave it a thorough sniffing before crunching it down. I guess we’ll see how he likes them when he is offered more.

Item: PetSafe Busy Buddy Chuckle Dog Toy


I think this toy is going to be of great interest to Ranger. Currently he uses two kongs and a Treat Ball to keep his brain entertained and I am hoping this will be another toy we can add to his food puzzles. It says it is meant for powerful jaws and the ends can withstand molars. It makes a weird noise when dropped/shook and has prongs in each end that can be cut to modify the ease of use. Can’t wait to fill this one up.

Item: Planet Dog Eats Chicken and Pumpkin Pot Pie treats


These treats contain NO wheat, corn, or soy. They are made with simple ingredients and Ranger had no problems scarfing down the test treat.

All told, I was really happy with this Barkbox. A new toy to add to the pile and some treats so I don’t break to the temptation of heading to the pet store 🙂
