Bullymake Box Subscription Review + Coupon – January 2018

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

Bullymake Box January 2018 Box closed

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 87 right now)

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (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.

Bullymake Box January 2018 Review

There wasn’t really a theme this month:

Bullymake Box January 2018 Booklet back

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.

Bullymake Pawesome Stick

Bullymake Pawesome Stick – Retail Value $18

Nyx pretty much lives for the nylon chew toys from Bullymake. I don’t know if this one has a flavor, but she loved it nonetheless. She used the wider “paw” part to grip with her own paws and chewed on the end for most of the play session. This is still in pretty good shape.

Multipet Nuts for Knots 3-Knot Rope

Multipet Nuts for Knots 3-Knot Rope – Retail Value $2.99

Nyx loves rope toys. (I linked to the same item in a different color; you can’t always find these in precisely the colors you want, though there are usually quite a few choices.) Unfortunately, she chews on them, so they don’t last her a long time. (She wants to play tug, but if you have ever tried to play tug with an 87-pound Rottweiler, you know there is a constant fear of having your arm ripped out of the socket…) She had fun with this for a little while, though.

Bullymake Gear Toy

Bullymake Gear Toy – Retail Value $17

This is a tough rubber toy. It doesn’t have that chemical smell associated with some rubber toys, which is great. There is a channel in the middle that you can put a chew in, or with Nyx, what we’ve done is smeared some of her wet food inside since her diet is so restricted. This seems like it will last a long time.

Tough Rubber Bone Toy by Hero

Tough Rubber Bone Toy by Hero – Retail Value $15

I am not sure why this didn’t have a label or any packaging attached to it. Oh well. It was new and clean and in good shape so I won’t complain. I don’t think this is flavored, but it has some interesting ridges and bumps to keep your dog entertained. Although it is probably possible to put some food or peanut butter in or on this to attract your dog’s interest, Nyx seemed to like it fine on its own.

I took pictures with the blue nylon toy this month. Nyx lives for these nylon chews from Bullymake Box, and the flavors don’t aggravate her inflammatory bowel disease. They don’t last her forever, but she will get to play with this a few more times before I have to take it away for good. (I don’t know if this one is flavored. It doesn’t have a smell, that I can tell.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of $52.99 for the January 2018 Bullymake Box. That’s a good value for a dog subscription that costs about $40. The items were of varying durability (most were pretty tough) but all were size-appropriate. The nylon chew was a particular favorite of Nyx’s.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first shipment would be February’s. You can buy some of the exclusive toys at the Bullymake Shop if something catches your eye. Also, please note that this is the TOYS ONLY version of the box and it is selected for an 80-pound dog. There are some box variations here so you may not always receive the same box as Nyx gets, even if you choose the same profile values when you sign up.

  1. The January box was my first shot at this subscription and I am so pleased! I have a 60lb pittie and toys generally only last her a few savored moments before she manages to destroy them.
    One thing I was feeling tentative about was the fact that most of these toys seem to be made with either nylon or rubber. Rubber obviously can break off into pieces of it isn’t durable enough and Darbie has never seemed too interested in nylon (if she cant “kill” her toys she gets bored) unless the nylon is flavored but then once the flavoring wears off she tends to abandon the you for pretty much anything else.
    However, I bit the bullet and got her a box and I just loved the products.
    I received the gear toy (yellow ball with a hole in the middle)
    And the pawsome stick (blue stick with a paw shape at the end)
    And a month later both toys are still holding up and keeping Darbie interested. The pawsome stick only occupies her for about 5-10 minutes at a time but I am pleased to say she does still chew on it which was really surprising to me. The gear toy might be the best thing she’s ever owned. Some of the ridges have broken off in small bits but the ball itself is still in good form and even though she chews and gnaws at it, she has yet to puncture or crack it.
    Because Darbs has a pretty tough tummy and she loves treats, I opted for the mixed box with both treats and toys. So, I received 3 different bags of treats along with the toys. I’m pretty picky and careful about the quality of treats I give to my dog but bullymake rose to that occasion as well.
    There was one bag she wasn’t too interested in called “buddy bones” or something of the sort and those were basically mediocre, chicken flavored biscuits. Not much nutritional or quality ingredients from that bag and we haven’t touched those too much. However, the other two bags I received were “pork fumbles” (pork flavored chewy treats shaped like footballs) and protein “sprockets” which were soft treats that kind of looked like stars. Those were both high in protein and the fumbles even smelled good to me, with actual meat being the number 1 ingredient.
    All in all this is the greatest choice I’ve made for Darbie in a while. I generally spend around the same (usually more) on toys and treats when I go to the pet store but those toys never last more than a day and wind up being a huge waste of money. This box is definitely worth 40 bucks a month and I can’t wait until her February box comes in!

  2. I dont see the toys only option. I saw the allergies and weight options. Then it looked like I would be charged a full year up front. Hope to figure it out because our corgi huskey mix is a destroyer of toys.

    • Hi! The toys only option should be available just before finishing the checkout process, it should say something along the lines of “Would you like to add extra toys for an additional 3$” (price may be inaccurate).
      Also it looked like they had 3 or 4 different subscription options, I signed up for the monthly which means I had to pay for the 1st month up front and then the payment will occur again every month on the 5th unless I choose to cancel my subscription. I’m assuming if you were trying to get a yearly subscription you would have to pay the lump sum up front but then you wouldn’t have to pay again until the subscription is renewed next year.
      There’s one more option or two available somewhere in between the monthly and yearly subscriptions but I’m not sure what they are.
      In addition, you do have the option of cancelling your subscription at any time, you just have to contact their customer service. I asked them a lot of questions before signing up for my subscription and they are very prompt and helpful

    • When you are going through the sign-up process, early on, there’s a choice of whether to do month-to-month or some other term. You have to click on the far left photo there because it is not the default.

      If you actually open the allergy drop-down menu, you’ll see the “toys only” option.

  3. My labs LOVE this box, we tried Bark Box for heavy chewers but they destroyed the two toys within 5′ – ughhhh. We actually got an extra toy a month for $9 since I have two dogs that share toys, so getting 5 a month works out great!!

  4. That looks like a great box for my pits. All of the others out there have toys that just will not last an hour in my house. I do think you may have mixed up the pictures for the blue Bullymake toy and the rubber bone.

    • After a year of wasting money on immediately torn-up toys and literally going through every toy available in my local pet stores thanks to my puppy pit mix, I went all-in and signed up for a year of Bullymake over a year ago. At the end of my sub I actually cancelled because I had such a backlog of toys. I was in toy overload because these would last longer than the month….a problem I NEVER though I’d have! The folks at Bullymake were nice enough to offer options to skip months or do shipments every other or every 3 months, but I still decided to “pause” entirely for awhile. If you get the toy and treat option they usually send Bullymake branded/made treats too (made in USA) so they aren’t the usual store-bought stuff either. I highly recommend this sub or the BarkBox Super Chewer option for pits. 🙂
