Every BarkBox has a theme – this month is ‘Sniffin Safari’!




It will come with a card that has some details about your themed box.



Buckles was VERY MUCH into this month’s BarkBox – it was hard to get a still photo of him!



Lamb and Sweet Potato Trainers – Value $8

This first treat was perfect for Buckles’ taste.


These are grain and gluten-free which is important for us. He tends to get ear infections if we give him a lot of gluten – so we shy away from it!



He wasn’t in an extremely photogenic mood – he was more interested in the payoff for taking the photo! He has kept begging for these little treats ever since he got a taste!



Koha Pork Jerky Bites – Value $8

These treats are an even smaller serving size than the ones above – he really loved both bags of treats this month.


Unfortunately, these aren’t gluten-free, so we’ll probably have to gift them. But, he was able to try one little treat!



Unfortunately for him, he loved them – but not as much as he hates the treatment for ear infections, so I think it evens out.


Chewfasa The Lion – Value $10

This is a new favorite toy for Buckles – he’s been playing with it all day and night.


We couldn’t even get a still shot because he was bouncing around with it so much!


Watch out for the hair, though – he was ripping and pulling it out so easily!


Dr. Licking Stone – Value $8

The second toy in the box was also plush! I like the design of it, too.



This was one that he was, surprisingly, not that into! I think his love for the lion transcends all.


Butcher’s Block Krunchie Tubes – Value $6

The last item, as it usually is, is a chew. This is a 2-pack of trachea chews. We don’t give these to Buckles since it tends to hurt his stomach – so we always gift these.

Verdict: I love BarkBox day because Buckles just knows that it’s in the house and he can’t wait for the photoshoot! My value came to around $40 this month – which is a little better than normal – and we’re happy to find a new favorite toy and treat for Buckles!

What did you think of the February BarkBox?

  1. Buckles is just Adorable! I have been getting Barkbox since this past December and get the heavy chewer edition. The treats are typically the same but the toys are mostly different. My little Lorna is a normal player but i Share the box with my parents little Zoey and she is a Cairn Terrier and OMG she ruins every toy that is given to her. We find that her favorite toys are actually real potatoes, carrots etc. even her dry dog food she throws around before eating. Dogs are just Too funny and they do know the sound of that treat bag being open. Thank you for always reviewing this box as i am reading the reviews just to see how Buckles is doing!

  2. <3 Buckles! <3
    I think I need a chewfasa for my Ruby. She'd have so much fun with it. She loves the long fur plushy ones.
    Great review! Thanks!

  3. I loved the blurred tail and action shot! Buckles is obviously having a great time. 🙂 There is something about those hairy toys that is irresistible!

  4. Did the toy have catnip or something? Wow, Buckles went to town.

  5. Aw so cute =)

  6. I didn’t think it was possible for Buckles to be any more adorable, until I saw the above photo of him with Chewfasa!! What is the recommendation for a smile that lasts more than 3 hours 🙂

  7. I Love Buckles! I wish he could meet our little Crickett 🐾

  8. Can you do a video of Buckles running around with a toy in a future review? 🙂

    • Ohhhh what a great idea! I’d love to see that too! He is SO sweet! Thanks for sharing him with all of us! 😀

  9. I could never deny that sweet face anything! My day just got better, give Buckles extra smooches from me 🙂

    • Done!
