Bullymake Box Subscription Box Review – January 2016
Bullymake Box is a monthly subscription box for power chewers. You all have heard about (and seen) some of Nyx’s exploits with plush toys from dog subscription boxes so when I heard about this one, I had to sign up immediately. Nyx is definitely a power chewer! You pick your dog’s weight in 10-pound increments so this is a box for an 80-pound dog (Nyx weighs about 83 right now).
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Subscription Box: Bullymake Box
Cost: $39 a month (save with 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions)
The Products: Toys and treats specifically tailored for heavy chewing dogs (no plushes). You can also choose a “toys only” box. Because of Nyx’s dietary issues, I went with the “toys only” box. You can also enter specific allergy information in a box on the checkout screen.
Ships to: USA (free!)
COUPON: Save $5 off your first box by joining their mailing list (it was a pop-up when I visited the site).

Note: This box did not come with an information card but it is pretty heavily customized so I would not expect a card.
JW Pet Company Hol-ee Roller X Extreme – Value $6.99
We’ve had other toys from JW before and they are usually pretty good for us as long as they don’t have feet, ears, etc. that can be chewed off. This doesn’t, and it appears that it will last a long time.
Kong Classic Large – Value $13.99
We have a couple of Kongs but they are pretty old. A replacement is probably in order. This is one of the few toys I feel safe leaving with Nyx while I am not around. I can’t put peanut butter in here (Nyx can’t have peanut butter) but her food kind of has the same consistency so I can just use that instead.
Mammoth Gnarlys Stick w/TPR Treat Ball – Value $12.49
Nyx likes to chew on her leash so I know she will like to chew on this. Of all the toys in the box, this is the one I think she’s most likely to destroy (a few years ago, she ATE an entire Gentle Leader harness, including the plastic buckle). However, the way the canvas is folded, I think it’ll take awhile for her to do any damage.
Mammoth Flossy Chews Large Knot Tug – Value $5.99
This seems durable so far (see below). Nyx hasn’t had a rope toy for awhile and she does love them.
I only let Nyx have one new toy every few days. The rope is the first one we tried and it is still intact after her first session with it, which is downright remarkable considering her recent track record. Plus, she loves it. (In fairness, she loves pretty much any toy I give her…)
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $39.50 for the January 2016 Bullymake Box. That is right about the cost of the box, and more than what I paid because I was able to use a coupon for the first month. Plus, some of the prices listed above are sale prices. If you get a longer subscription, it’s a really good value for a dog box. Box contents are going to vary by a lot depending on allergies, toys only versus toys and treats, dog weight, etc. So there is definitely some value for customization as well. And, I received this maybe 3-4 days after I placed the order, which is pretty remarkable.
I do see a lot of hard rubber toys in the future with this subscription. Nyx likes those, so that is good for us. In fact, this box was perfect for her. The items were size appropriate and durable (and Nyx is the most destructive dog with toys I have ever had). I’m really glad I found this subscription!
What do you think of the January 2016 Bullymake Box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
