Buckles invaded my photoshoot multiple times, claiming he’d be the judge of the quality of July’s box.
Each month comes with a card. They completely moved away from showing any item values on the card. Instead, they’re adding shareable activities and information about re-ordering. I liked when the values were on the card – it felt a lot of transparent.
This month’s card was a little detachable medallion for use in a social media contest.
On to the goods!
If Buckles’ tail is any indication – he’s ready to give his honest opinion on this month’s BarkBox.
Playto – Value $8
This little Plato plush was the only soft toy this month. I don’t think this will find its way into Buckles’ Favorite Things – he wasn’t too interested.
This was as raucous as Buckles got with the plush. He was definitely more interested in the treats this review!
USA Salmon Snacks – Value $6
The first bag of treats were soft Salmon snacks. They’re a really good size for him, a bigger treat, but not too big.
It’s rare that we can capture him while he’s not trying to open the bag with his nose!
These were a quick favorite for him – ready and willing to shake for them.
Busy Buddy Treat Rings – Value $5
The second and last bag of treats were these chicken flavored treat rings.
You can now see what I mean when I say that he tries to open the bag as soon as possible.
We gave him one to try on its own. He loved them so much that he took it into the grass where no one could steal his precious (chicken) ring.
But, the great thing about these treats is that they partner with the other toy…
Busy Buddy Bouncy Bone – Value $7
This bone is made to keep your dog busy for a bit. The bone unscrews from the rubber middle allowing you to put the chicken rings between the bone edges and the ball.
Since Buckles refuses any hard toy – I was happy to see him interested in it with the added chicken treats in play.
Not quite sure…
How to get to…
Precious chicken rings.
Spoiler alert: He totally figured it out once he came back inside.
Half Pig Ear – Value $3
If you’re a fan of Buckles, you might know that we don’t give him these types of chews for dietary reasons. They seem to have become an inclusion in almost every recent box – which is bad for Buckles, but good for another gifted pup.
Verdict: As always, Buckles loves the treats this month. But, this month he wasn’t thrilled with the toys – they will probably both be gifted. If you’re a BarkBox subscriber, your dog thinks that every package is full of glorious treats from themselves – and I love when he’s actually right and he gets his precious BarkBox. Buckles has been loving them for years now, and we’ve got relatives hooked as well! This month wasn’t the best for our dog – but I do love reloading on treats each month (he does too).
What did you think of the July BarkBox? What did your dog receive?
