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.
About Bullymake Box
The Subscription Box: Bullymake Box
The Cost: $39 a month (save with 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions)
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.
Bullymake Box January 2018 Review
There wasn’t really a theme this month:
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 – 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 – 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 – 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 – 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.
