Bullymake Box Subscription Review + Coupon – August 2017
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.
The Subscription Box: Bullymake Box
The Cost: $39 a month (save with 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions)
COUPON: Use code Bullymake5 to save $5 off your first box!
The Products: Toys and treats specifically tailored for heavy chewing dogs (no plushes). You can also choose a “toys only” box. Because of Nyx’s dietary issues, I went with the “toys only” box. You can also enter specific allergy information in a box on the checkout screen.
Ships to: USA (free!), Canada for $8, and Internationally for an additional cost
Good to know: if you want a toys-only box, you must select that during sign-up. Otherwise, you will get the default box, which does include some treats.
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
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?
