BarkBox Review & Coupon - October 2013

I think the October BarkBox is our favorite box from BarkBox yet! (I know it was our dog’s favorite box – my husband had to hold our dog back just so I could take pictures of this box!)

Barkbox offers three different subscriptions based on your dog’s size (this review is of the small dog box).

Fruitables Halloween Dog Treats – 8 Pack Value $6

I love that there was a Halloween item in this box – and Halloween treats for dogs is such a cute idea! This is a “share pack,” and while I think our dog will have issues sharing treats, I will be giving these out on Halloween if any dogs come trick or treating with their families!

Pet Qwerks Bear – Value $7

Superior Farms Lamb Ears – Value $3

I don’t think it gets any cuter than this tiny chevron bear! Our dog loves both of these items!

Mutt Meatballs Treat Mix for Dogs – Value $8

Baker’s Best Autumn Harvest Goat Liver Recipe Dog Treats – Value $8

Here’s the list of ingredients in this Meatball mix: Organic rolled oats, organic spinach flakes, organic red bell pepper, organic parsley, organic basil. I’m pretty sure this is the healthiest mix I’ve seen – for humans or dogs!

Verdict: We paid $19 for this box and received $32 worth of high quality dog treats and toys. (We signed up with the 6-month subscription since the savings per month are so substantial). I thought this was another great box from BarkBox, and we’re always happy with this subscription. I also love that their treats are consistently wholesome and healthy (and usually organic and gluten-free).

What did you think of this month’s BarkBox? Will you be baking meatballs for your pup? Handing out dog treats on Halloween? (And the most important question – is your dog dressing up for Halloween this year?)

  1. I just signed up for Barkbox back in September and got their October ‘Large’ breed box. I have 2 dogs, a weimerimer and a french bulldog. Both LOOOOOVED the two toys (Fetch and Glow Ball and a West Paw Zogoflex Bumi). Also in the box, we had the treats for sharing and the liver. When they hear me opening those bags, they both come running from another room to get some. It’s adorable!

    Barkbox is great, customer service is wonderful as well. They usually try to stick to one ingredient treats, which is awesome!

  2. I have been looking at all your reviews for pet subscription boxes and I definitely think I will be getting my dogs bark box. All the goodies are so cute. I love the Halloween treat packs. Those with 2 dogs do you get both a box or one to share?

    • I have 4 dogs. 1 small, 1 medium and 1 large and 1 6 month old large breed puppy. I get 3 boxes. Barkbox is medium. Pets love toys has no size and Spoiled rotten which is medium. I think 1 barkbox is good for 2 dogs if they are small or medium. JMO Barkbox is my fave though!!!

  3. Thanks for the great review of our product. We hope you have fun making the Mutt Meatballs!

  4. What size did you sign up for? I think I get medium and we got a glow in the dark ball and another rubber toy. Love the treat packs too! Wish I had gotten the meatballs!! I might have to increase her size as my lab is getting big!

    • We get the “Small and Cute” box – 0-20 pounds. Hope that helps!
