Bullymake Box Subscription Review + Coupon – August 2017

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

Bullymake Box August 2017 Dog Subscription Box

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 86 right now; she has changed weight in the past few months due to medication issues).

My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Toys-only, 80-pound, $39 a month, box.

Not all boxes are the same due to the fact that you can choose your dog’s size in 10-pound increments, choose a toys-only box, etc., but there is usually an information card highlighting an item or two from the box.

Chuckit! Ultra Ball (large) – Value $7.95

We don’t have one of the Chuckit! launchers, but Nyx likes ball toys in general. We sometimes play fetch in the living room where my husband will throw something and Nyx will bring it back, but will only drop it when you throw a second toy, which she will then go retrieve. This ball fits nicely into our fetch games.

Bullymake Shotgun Shell – Value $20

This is made from durable rubber. It is a treat-dispensing toy.  I have not always been super excited about those in the past, but now that I have found some treats Nyx can actually eat (with cricket protein, ewww!), we can use these properly. This kept Nyx busy for a good while last night.

Orange Rubber Treat Dispensing Toy – Value $10?

This has a tag with a Taiwanese manufacturer listed on it, but they only sell wholesale so I am basing the value on similar items. This could be a treat dispensing toy, although it also works if you fill the ends with water and freeze it. Nyx likes chomping on ice and it doesn’t make a mess on the carpet.

Bullymake Melon Chew –Value $18

This is allegedly cantaloupe flavored. It smelled like vanilla to me. It is supposed to help with dental health. Nyx does love flavored bones like this, and they don’t seem to upset her IBD, but she managed to destroy the end of this in a few minutes (she had a lot of fun doing so, though!). This was not the most durable Bullymake-branded item we’ve received.

Hero Built Tough Treat Dispensing Toy – Value $15

This one is not flavor infused, as far as I can tell. I haven’t given it to Nyx yet (she was kind of overloaded by the other toys) but I am thinking about smearing some of her wet food between the projections along the sides. She will enjoy that.  As always, please supervise your dog with any new toy!

Here is Nyx enjoying the melon-flavored bone.  This didn’t last a super long time but she had a lot of fun with it for a little while.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $71 for the August 2017 Bullymake Box. That’s a great value for a $40 dog box. I’ve priced a lot of dog toys lately, and the listed values on the information card (and in the Bullymake shop) are not far off from what you’d pay for higher-tier dog toys. Although the cantaloupe bone got chewed up kind of quickly, everything else has been durable so far. This happens to be a really good box for a dog with Nyx’s tendencies, but of course, every dog’s toy preferences will vary.

What do you think of the August 2017 Bullymake Box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. We just got the Bullymake box for the first time this month (so it was the same box as Nix’s). Our dog immediately destroyed the melon bone and ended up vomiting numerous times from the plastic. We contacted customer support and they told us it was supposed to break up so they wouldn’t replace it!! Then I saw on their website they’re sending this cheap melon bone out next month as well. BEWARE!! Don’t let your dog eat Bullymake boxes. You’re better off looking somewhere else for dog toys.

  2. I have a 75lb Lab and a 13lb Shih Tzu. I got the Bullymake box for them because my Lab destroys pretty much every toy (besides hard Nylabones and some Kongs). We have a ton of toys for our little Shih Tzu, but I wanted to find some longer lasting toys for our Lab – so I subscribed for the 3 month supply to Bullymake. We just got the first box (2 toys and 2 bags of treats). Augie, our Lab, destroyed the Hero bone toy in ~3 minutes. He got the plastic bits apart and I took it away. We then gave him the shotgun shell. Augie loves to retrieve so we played fetch with it which was good. Then I let him chew on it and it actually lasted a day. I was like finally! But then the next day I gave it to him again and he got plastic bits apart again (got it down to a nub, but didnt swallow anything). I contacted Bullymake Customer service and they are replacing both toys. I switched to toys only box next month so we will see. If those don’t last, I will have to cancel.

    • I cannot see how any of these toys could last with a heavy chewer! I finally got my replacement toys…1 was made out of soft rubber, the other was another boomerang from our first box-it’s hard plastic, but a boring shape so not very interesting to our pup.
      The next box had one toy from our first box that got destroyed! And then the soft rubber toy from our recent replacement box that was soft rubber! The two other new toys didn’t last long either.
      So out of three months of boxes we were able to keep 4 toys. A ball, a starfish, and two dull boomerangs.
      I’m not saying these aren’t quality toys, but I don’t think they should to cater to tough chewers.
      Also, their customer service is terrible all around. Missing boxes and now repeat toys?? They clearly aren’t listening.

  3. This box is seriously the best. We have never had any issues and our dog Brooks destoryed 1 toy in 6 months of boxes.

    Bullymake sent a replacement the next day after i contacted customer care.

    They consistently send high quality toys and their customer service is excellent.

    Highly recommend Bullmake Boxes!

  4. This has been the biggest let down of any box I’ve ever subscribed to.

    I bought a 3 month subscription and withthe first box my puppy destroyed 2 out of the 4 toys instantly. So I contacted customer service. They sent 2 replacement toys that didn’t make it through the day.

    The second month the same thing happened- 2 of the 4 toys were destroyed immediately, I contacted customer service…and never got my replacement box. 2 weeks later I emailed them and asked about the status. They were super polite about “escalating” the issue, but it’s been a week and the tracking number hasn’t been updated. I also have the tracking number for my final box and that one is dead too.

    Biggest waste of money ever! And I had such high hopes for this subscription.

    Save your money and buy quality toys when they go on sale at your local pet store.

    • Hmm…..you must have a super dog! Lol. My year long sub of the 2 toys plus treats version of this box just finished and I “had” to cancel because I have such a backlog of toys we haven’t even gotten to! Every toy I could find at local pet stores got destroyed but my dog couldn’t keep up with this sub. I will say that most of the toys were nylon chews or hard rubber treat stuffers which even got boring for me so maybe my dog just got bored and he gave up destroying. Lol.

      • This one has been really good for us, too, but every dog is different.

        Also, I don’t have a pet store that is conveniently located with respect to my house. There is a PetSmart 20-30 minutes away but it is in a nightmare of a strip mall with a nightmare of a parking lot and I avoid it if at all possible (sometimes I have to go to buy bird food).

        Nyx still gets excited about nylon chews. Every single time.

        • It’s not even so much that half the box is unuseable to us, it’s also that I’m getting the runaround about my replacement toys. I’ve forwarded each tracking number for the missing boxes back and I get the same response- my package must have gotten lost.

          Which, I understand that these things do happen. But for it to happen to now three boxes in a row there must be something wrong…I would appreciate something more than a canned response to my emails. They aren’t doing much to inspire trust.

          That’s unfortunate you live so far from a pet store! Sometimes we shop for toys online too, with certain brands at this point I can trust the quality usually. And now even if I do make a mistake, I’m still not out as much money as what Bullymake costs.

      • I don’t think I have a superdog but we definitely have a bully breed- another reason I am shocked their toys don’t last!

    • Haven’t tried this box, but as someone with two chew-happy pits, give the West Paw brand a shot. Original Kongs and Chuck It balls (the regular, not squeak) seem to hold up too.

      (For edible chews, try the 2 Dog Treats yak milk bones!)

      • Thank you so much for your suggestions!!

  5. Nyx is adorable!!!
