Swag Co. Parrot – Value $9
This Squeeki Tiki toy is BPA free! Our dog Buckles doesn’t care too much for plastic toys, but my mom’s dog does, so this goes to her!
Buckles wasn’t too crazy about this Parrot either – he prefers toys of the plush/squeaker variety. (You can see his slight interest in these toys in our unboxing video!)
Yeti Corp Golden Nuggets – Value $8
Etta Says! Bison Chew – Value $3
I am not a fan of these golden nuggets. According to the package, you microwave them for 60 seconds, they expand to about double the size, then you let them cool and give them to your dog. In both times I tried this, the treat ended up burning a little, and it was as bad as the burnt popcorn smell I hate! (AKA it stinks up the house for what seems like forever). Our dog loved the smell, so I’m guessing he would have loved these treats, but I ended up just throwing them out. If you had better success microwaving these let me know!
Our dog went crazy for this chew though – and I love that it is made in the USA.
Etta Says! Toasted Coconut Bitz – Value $7
Our dog didn’t like these too much – he’s pretty picky when it comes to food and prefers his treats not to be too healthy, and to be at least 95% meat.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $35 – I think that’s a good value for the $29 a month cost, and even better if you sign up for a longer subscription with a coupon. (That’s what we did).
This box wasn’t a huge hit for us since most of the items Buckles rejected, but it did result in my favorite unboxing video ever, so I’m OK with that. (Plus most Barkboxes are wins for us, and we share items Buckles rejects with dog cousins!)
