Each month of BarkBox is themed. This month’s theme was “Bark To School”!
Buckles was very excited to unboxing this with us.
Munchables Sausage and Chips – Value $7
The first treat set was perfectly on theme. These sausage and chips treats were made to look like the ever-popular Lunchables.
It included two types of treats as well. A crispy sweet potato chip and a soft sausage chew.
Spoiler alert – this was Buckles’ favorite thing this month. He could hardly wait for me to open it.
While he accepted the chip, he politely put it aside to let me know that he was more interested in the sausage.
It’s safe to say that he loves these – everything else came in second to these treats.
Sloppy Joe Treats – Value $6
Another theme appropriate treat were these little sloppy joe treats. They are a soft, chewy, beef treat.
Just because a treat comes in second place doesn’t mean that he doesn’t give it his full attention. He’s dedicated to his job.
Crunchy Puffs – Value $6
The last treats in the box were these crunchy treats made from Yak and Cow milk. We didn’t have Buckles try this one for two reasons. First, these were large – much bigger than bite size for a small dog, and second, he never does well with rawhide – while these probably have no rawhide, it just seemed like something that his stomach couldn’t handle.
Peanut Butter and Jowly Sandwich Toy – Value $12
There were two plush toys this month! First, this peanut butter and jelly sandwich toy. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get pictures of Buckles with toys because he was so preoccupied with the sausage links. This toy is pretty large for a small dog, so I’m betting it won’t pique his interest since he’s really into bite-size plush toys.
Split Apple Toy – Value $14
The last toy is an apple. This is more of his size and, while still a little bigger than bite-size, I bet he will love it when he is out of this sausage treat trance.
It pulls apart to reveal an apple core – both sides are totally velcro – it was a fun reveal!
Verdict: Buckles very much loved this month of BarkBox, especially the sausage treats. We’ll be able to easily gift or use everything this month – so it has great value for us, too. I’m really happy that we received two plush toys as well – this was almost a perfect box for our dog!
