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 87lbs right now).
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Bullymake Box March 2019 Review
There was a St. Patrick’s Day theme this month (although we did receive the box after the 17th):
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.
There was also a card letting subscribers know that further customization is available for this subscription. I was very excited by this because Nyx absolutely lives for the nylon toys Bullymake Box sends out each month (she is somewhat less enthusiastic about the rubber ones, and they also last her longer so we have a lot already), so I immediately went online and selected the option to get a second nylon toy. I find that dogs do tend to prefer one type, either nylon or rubber, so I think it’s great that you can choose what works best for your dog – or change it up from time to time.
Leprechaun Hat by Bullymake – Listed Value $18
This is the first featured item for the month. It’s not yet in the Bullymake shop, although it may be in a few weeks (there’s a lag time, I’ve found). This is the rubber toy for the month. One thing that is great about the Bullymake rubber toys is they always pay attention to safety details, like having a second hole so your dog’s tongue can’t get stuck inside via suction. Nyx likes this toy when I put peanut butter inside, and we’ve also got a few small treats that seem to be working for her that I can stuff in there.
Horseshoe by Bullymake – Listed Value $18
This is the second featured item for the month and is also not yet in the Bullymake shop. This is the nylon toy for the month. I don’t know if it is flavored (I would assume so, as the others have been, although this one didn’t have a scent). Nyx thought this was great – these nylon toys are the highlight of her month, and they don’t aggravate her inflammatory bowel disease.
Bullymake Rope Ball
This is one of the items we received since we have the “no treats” box. Bullymake has started sending a few rope toys lately. This is about the size of a tennis ball so no safety concerns. Nyx likes chewing on this, which is probably not the intended use, but she hasn’t done much damage to it yet so everything is good. (It’s possible she’s getting less destructive as she gets up there in years – she’s 6.5 already!)
Bullymake Nylon Coin
Here is another nylon toy – the coin from the leprechaun’s pot of gold, I guess? Anyway, as you might expect, Nyx is thoroughly enjoying this one as well. It has enough surface texture that she’s able to pick it up from the rug even though it’s relatively flat, which is always a plus (sometimes she just pushes smooth toys around until they end up under the couch).
Here are a few shots of Nyx with the horseshoe toy. These nylon chews are the highlight of her month. This didn’t make for as interesting pictures as I’d hoped, but she sure enjoyed it a lot!
Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a total value for the March 2019 Bullymake Box because none of the items were available in their shop (some may appear later, especially this month’s featured toys) and there’s really nowhere else to get them since they were all Bullymake branded. But, Nyx liked everything and everything was durable. I know that durable toys for large, heavy chewers are expensive, so I feel like this box is a good deal for us. (Of course, every dog’s chew style is different.)
Note: if you want a toys-only box, you should select that during sign-up. Otherwise, you will get the default box, which does include some treats. You can also now go into your account and customize your preferences regarding treats, toy type, etc.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first shipment would be April’s. You can sometimes buy some of the exclusive toys at the Bullymake Shop if something catches your eye (this month’s toys may take a few weeks to get put into the shop). Also, please note 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.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $39 + free shipping, which means that each of the 4 items in the box has an average cost of $9.75.
