BarkBox vs Loot Pets – March 2016

Note from Liz: I’m so excited to introduce the newest reviewer to join our team, Buckles!

IMG_1145

Each month I pride myself in deciding what subscription box treats and toys are best for us dogs. I wanted to paws, and take a moment to go through my two favorite boxes – BarkBox and Loot Pets.

Please note: I’ll be rating these items with my favorite system, barks.

Loot Pets Subscription Box Review + Coupon March 2016 - group shot

You’ll notice that I’m wearing the latest in fashion for my photos. Each month, Loot Pets sends me a highly curated shirt, just for my body type.

Ok – On to the good stuff.

I’ll start with BarkBox. This month’s theme was based on one of my parents’ favorite shows, Sherlock. Here you’ll see the two toys that were painstakingly hand-picked just for me. Like my dad with his POPs from geek boxes, I take these out of the box and play with them – but I make sure to leave them in pristine condition.

I give this month’s toy selection 4 barks out of 5.

This month’s Barkbox treats were my favorite to date. Both are delicious. 5 barks out of 5.

While both are good, I stand by the Bacon and Eggs treats. If I could change one thing about treat bags in general, I’d make them easier to open. I hate having to ask my parents for help:

Reviews are ruff. Treat Break.

Moving on to Loot Pets. This month they sent me a Batman toy, which I know makes my dad jealous. While it is nice and plush, I find the lack of a squeaker inside troubling. It just can’t hold my attention without it.

3 barks out of 5.

These treats are the highlight of the Loot Pets box. The Turducke’nstein treats are my current go-to.

A stellar, 5 barks out of 5.

So this is my haul this month. Pretty impressive stuff…WAIT

I see a squirrel outside – gotta go!

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS’ DAY!

Buckles first discovered subscription boxes when his parents got a Groupon for BarkBox. Since then, he's assumed every box in the mail is full of bones for him. In addition to reviewing dog boxes, he helps out MSA by maintaining a constant vigil for USPS, UPS, and FedEx deliveries.

How in the world did I miss this in April?? This is absolutely the cutest thing in the world and my fav review ever!! Love Buckles!!

Liz Cadman

Yay! Glad you like it 🙂 We had way too much fun with this post 🙂

Amy Sether

This review made my day, Buckles is a total asset to the team, not to mention adorable!!! #TeamBuckles

Liz Cadman

Thanks!! Based on the comments on this post, I think our April Fools Joke has turned into Buckles becoming a regular reviewer! 🙂

mimi

Yay!

Emily

I love this! Buckles is too cute!

Yona Williams

One very cute dog there…and the cutest review ever! Nice Sherlock themed goodies.

Kaitlyn

This was so fun! I think the bio is my favorite. My dog is always on watch for deliveries too!

Liz Cadman

Haha – dogs are the best delivery alert system! 🙂

Beth

Too cute!! What a sweet baby! ????

Tammy

Great review, but also, I need that Batman toy. It is impossible to find toys without squeakers, but my dog destroys them to get to the squeak, and my other dog sometimes eats the parts, so this would be great!!

Claudia

I am officially in love with Buckles!!

Miccarty

Oh my goodness. I know it’s been said already, but this is too funny and Buckles is just the cutest!

Orlee???

OMG, Buckles is amazing and this review was fantastic! He is so cute — I can’t even! ???

He looks like a happy little Ewok, which is especially funny in a Star Trek shirt!

Geordana R

O.M.G!!! Like, why hasn’t this been a constant thing?!? LOOOOOOOOVVVVEEEE!!! Seriously Liz I hope you keep doing this!!! Absolutely adorable!!! Buckles along with Nyx are like magical!! Lol

gcc

love it!

mimi

I think you mean Pawsome. . .

mimi

sorry, this was meant for Katie

Katie

Awesome review!?

Sheila

Almost forgot–I also really like Nyx’s reviews and she is a cutie too! MSA has the best canine reviews in the business.

Chantel

Best review ever!

Sheila

Buckles is my favorite reviewer! And he looks so good in his Star Trek t-shirt! Bonus points for video review!

Loba

Clover has decided that if she does not get to read more pet subs reviewed by Buckles that she will rip out all of the squeakers out of all of her toys. Oh, wait…she already does that. The review was awesome and Clover may or may not be holding us hostage for the next review. So our future is in Buckles…er…paws. No pressure. 😉

Heather P

Please please please do this every month! It made my morning, thank you!!!! He is adorable & I loved the puns- so cute! Fingers crossed this becomes a regular thing!

Adrianna

I love this review. I’m getting my dog Loot pets now. I’m sure my chi Minmi would love it too. Bring back buckles <3

Sarah

This is, paws down, the dog-gone cutest review ever on MSA. This is seriously too good to limit to an April Fool’s joke. I really hope to see Buckles as a frequent contributor!

#bringbackBuckles

Jessvii

I agree – this was too cute and too fun to limit to just one day a year! I loved this review.

AMH

I have been hoping Buckles would do his own reviews. He is so cute! Can he please do more reviews?

Maribel:)

This review by Buckles is the cutest thing ever! ?

Karen

I wholeheartedly agree with the other commenters that this is, hands down, the best review ever!! I’m not sure what is my favorite picture, the one where Buckles has his head halfway inside the treat bag or the one where he’s staring with such focus on his latest haul. All the while sporting his latest fashion ensemble. I’m in love!

I hope Buckles is very very very frequent contributor to MSA – he just made my morning! Thanks Buckles!

Monica

Excellent review.

c8

Please do pet box reviews with him every month! I loved reading this one!

Britt? (and Sammy?)

Ţo??ll? ?????!!!!! We want more Buckles.. He’s going to be holding out for more money, (0r treats) if he knows he’s in such high demand!???LOL! ???? ?????? ??? ?????, ???ℝ!!!!

Britt? (and Sammy)

OMGOSH!!!! Cutest Review EVER!!!! Buckles~ You did an awesome job with your review(s).. Very thorough & the modeling, well let’s just say “SuperModel” should be somewhere in your name. Love the matching shirts, so much!!?????

I LOVE LOVE LOVE That dog!!!!!! Need that dog, for a companion, for our dog.. Our Sammy looks almost identical, but he’s black & white. What kind of dog is Buckles??

Thanks for this great review, it definitely brought my morning up, quickly~~
??????

Liz Cadman

Yay!! ? Thank you! Glad you liked the review – I’ll pass along the supermodel compliment 🙂

Buckles is a Carin Terrier and Poodle Mix.
