BarkBox Super Chewer Subscription Box Review – March 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

BarkBox is the most popular dog subscription box. They now offer a Super Chewer Box version for dogs who are destructive. If you have read any of my dog subscription reviews, you will know that my Rottweiler, Nyx, is an expert at finding the weak points in toys and tearing them apart, so this seemed perfect for her. (For reference, Nyx weighs about 86 pounds right now.)

There was an information card detailing some of the items in the box. This month’s theme was “Bento and Blossoms,” which I think is fun, and definitely different from all the other March dog subscription boxes we’ve gotten so far.

barkbox-super-chewer-march-2017-chews

Chicky Twizzies from Emerald Pet Products (6”) – Value $2.86

These are made with real chicken (which, unfortunately, Nyx can’t have) and are free of grains, dairy, and soy, so they will work for dogs with a lot of different food allergies and sensitivities. They are also NOT jerky and are 100% digestible, plus of course, they are made in the USA.

Yeti Dog Chew (medium, 2.5 oz) – Value $7.99

These are organic and made from Himalayan Yak and Cow milk. They are kind of pricey for the size but there are no preservatives, additives, etc., and are basically a very hard kind of cheese. If you’d like to know more about how they’re made, click here. (Because these are cultured, the lactose is digested and even many lactose-intolerant dogs can have them.)

Petsafe Ninja Star (large) – Value $15

Apparently, this is vanilla-scented? I didn’t notice. Anyway, this can be used to dispense food or treats or just chewed on. There is a squeaker in the center and Nyx COULD activate it, so she had some fun with that. The funniest thing that happened when she played with this (which, unfortunately, I was not able to photograph) was when she had two of the arms in her mouth and one sticking out.

Lucky the Cat Toy – Value $14

Nyx would never chew on a real kitty because she knows they have pointy ends (she’s been scratched in the nose a few times). But she also has no idea this is cat-shaped. It has a large hole in the bottom and a smaller hole in the top so it can be used like a KONG (with peanut butter or ice inside or something similar), although Nyx just likes to chew on hard rubber toys sometimes. (Note: this did not have a plastic or chemical smell.)

No Grainers Jerky Chews in BBQ Chicken Flavor (5 oz) – Value $12

If these were cat treats, they’d be called “semi-moist.” I’m not sure if the same terminology applies to dog treats, though. As with other treats provided by BarkBox, these are made in the USA. These are also grain free and soy free. They can be used as-is for training larger dogs or can be broken into pieces and given to smaller dogs.

Caru Duck Recipe Baked Bites (4 oz) – Value $9

These are made in the USA and are grain-free, plus the primary protein is duck. So they are going to be great for most dogs with food allergies and sensitivities. They also have blueberry and cranberry, both of which are good sources of antioxidants and may help with urinary tract issues. This is a new brand to me but these treats really seem like a premium product.

Nyx is so fun to photograph. She gets excited about everything. Some examples:

Here are a few shots of Nyx (OK, a LOT of shots of Nyx) with the toys from the month. And another Angus photobomb.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $60.85 for this month’s Super Chewer BarkBox. That is a really good value. I liked the variety of items, with value distributed between treats, toys, and chews. The toys were quite durable even with a very destructive dog and Nyx was definitely interested. (Nyx likes hard rubber toys. You will get a fair number of hard rubber toys with this subscription so just be aware of that before signing up. If your dog is not into hard rubber toys, you may be better off with the regular BarkBox.)

What do you think of the March 2017 Super Chewer BarkBox dog subscription box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. Those chew toys with the holes in them, my vet said he has had to surgically remove them from the dogs tongue. The dog bites the toy and licks it and it literally sucks the tongue into them be careful.

    • They are supposed to have holes in both ends (like a KONG) to avoid suction problems. I don’t always show the second hole, but I have not encountered one that didn’t have it with this particular subscription.

  2. My two glide s had the stuffed animals unstuffed before I was able to walk the box to the recycling container. How do I switch to super chewed

    • I contacted customer service through their chat box and asked them to switch me over. It was done within a few minutes.

  3. Is there a box that only comes with durable toys and no treats? My 3 labs have a variety food allergies so I’d rather avoid treats altogether. But they destroy toys in a matter of days which I’d love to find some that last.

    • I don’t know that there is a box that has just the toys in it, however you can go to barkshop.com and purchase the individual toys from the site that come in the boxes!

  4. Howlooo Ragan and Nyx! Thanks so much for reviewing March’s Super Chewer BarkBox! We are so yappy that Nyx ruvved the Troog – we wish we could have seen her with two ends in her mouth! 🙂 With the Super Chewer BarkBox, we sent out our durable, rubber toys only. So if a pup doesn’t prefer rubber toys, the heavy chewer option with the Classic BarkBox would be better! That is a great combination of stronger plush and rubber toys.

    If something ever isn’t pawfect for Nyx or a pup in our pack, we are also happy to replace it with something that will get their tails waggin’! Just howler into [email protected] and we can lend a paw.

    Thanks fur being in the pack and we look forward to Nyx showing off her powerful chompers soon!

    • Do you know if there are Barkboxes for doggies with allergies? My pups would love the toys but they’d be allergic to many treats.

      • They do ask about allergies. The have special boxes for your pet.

  5. Love Angus for all his PhotobombinG…

  6. The black star was in my dogs heavy chewer box this month. They are not too big on the rubber toys but I have found it in various parts of the house/yard so I do know it is getting some use while I am at work!

    • Would like to change my current subscription to the new super chewer version!
