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 subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Bullymake Box July 2019 Review
There was a patriotic theme this month (although the box did arrive well after the 4th of July):
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, and now choose the types of toys, and the newer information cards reflect that.
Fife Tough Nylon Chew
Bullymake Box now lets you fully customize your box based on toy type. If you don’t customize, you’ll get one nylon toy (probably this one, this month), one rubber toy, and a couple of bags of treats. We opted to go for an all-toys box since Nyx has inflammatory bowel disease, and we chose a nylon toy for our second toy as well, just based on my past observations of Nyx and what she enjoys more. (We did not choose a third or fourth toy but those are typically a third nylon toy and a rope, in our case.) At any rate, one toy from our selections is always a monthly themed toy and this is it for the month. I have to say, we’ve received a lot of patriotic-themed toys in dog subscription boxes, but never a fife before. Nyx enjoyed obsessively chewing this like she does with all nylon toys; you can see some pictures of her with it below.
Here is this month’s rope toy. I wouldn’t say these were any more durable than other rope toys, but they do usually last Nyx a few sessions, and it will be possible to play tug with this one due to the extra loop. (Playing tug is one of Nyx’s favorite activities.)
Star Nylon Chew
Here is our second nylon toy for the month, a star. Nyx absolutely lives for these nylon chews so she loved this as well. (But if your dog doesn’t like them, no worries, just choose rubber toys instead. That’s what’s great about this box. For what it’s worth, none of the nylon or rubber toys ever has a weird chemical smell, although some of the nylon toys do have a flavor to them, which you can kind of smell, although we’re talking peanut butter, vanilla, and things like that.)
Blue Bar Nylon Chew
I am not sure what to call this. I looked for it in the Bullymake shop but actually none of this month’s toys were up there yet. (They may appear later.) Anyway, I think this may have been Nyx’s favorite for the month because she had a little easier time gripping it with her paws while chewing.
Here are some pictures of Nyx with the fife toy. She liked this a lot but because it is a bit smaller than some of the other Bullymake toys, a lot of the pictures didn’t really show the toy at all, because it was mostly hidden under her paws or something.
Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a total value for the July Bullymake Box because all of the toys were Bullymake exclusives but not available in their shop. However, I’d say this was a typical month for this subscription for us. This is one of Nyx’s favorite boxes to receive each month and I like the customization – some people and dogs might find three nylon toys boring, but this is literally Nyx’s favorite type of toy, ever, and getting three of them means three times the entertainment (and also they last a long time). But if nylon toys aren’t your dog’s thing, you can choose rubber toys, more of a variety of toy types, or get a couple of bags of treats to substitute for some of the toys. If you aren’t sure what your dog will like, get the standard box for a month or two and observe, and then go in and change up your selections based on your findings.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first shipment would be August’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: At $39 for the box, you are paying an average of $9.75 per item.
