“My dog knows when a BarkBox has arrived. He can smell the excitement before he can smell the box itself! […] Buddy has yet to meet a BarkBox toy that he didn’t like.” – Kathleen Dougherty
“Quality toys and treats that my dog gets so excited about! Fun themes, too. I also love how you can take out a “lite” subscription to meet your budget.” – Carey
“Our dogs get so excited when their new box arrives – so fun to watch them! The treats are high quality and the toys are practically indestructible. We love the cute monthly themes, too!” – Cindy B
What you get: BarkBox is a monthly dog subscription that sends 2 quirky toys (usually plushies), 2 bags of all-natural treats, and 1 chew in each box. Boxes are curated for your dog based on their weight and allergies (chicken, turkey, and beef allergies are built into their checkout). Each box is centered on a theme, and each high-quality item fits in impeccably!

What Our Readers Say:
“Always something to pull out to make your pup happy!” – Alex N.
What you get: If your dog’s favorite toy is the iconic KONG, you may as well stick with what works for ’em! KONG Box sends a classic with the first box (you know, the kind pups love to lick peanut butter or treats out of), then subsequent boxes include a combo of a KONG training toy, a “personality toy,” which is hand-picked based on your unique dog’s needs, KONG brand treats, and recipes & tips for keeping your playful pal as happy as can be. Each dog subscribed to this box has their own profile set up with their chewing style, size, and more, so if you have more than one pooch you can be guaranteed you won’t get the same ol’ toys. And, here’s a perk: KONG toys are made in Colorado.
