Review: Bark Box, June 2016

Review: Bark Box, June 2016

Pixie's 3rd Bark Box arrived!  


First off, I think that they are a great company and have done a great job getting their name out there.

The box had a really cute theme of Camp Bow Wow. Really made me want s'mores! :)

Shipping was very quick and the packaging was pretty adorable

I thought that the toy quality was too cheap for larger dogs.  Pixie destroyed the toys very quickly and there was no recovery.  Pixie enjoyed the BarkBox toys but did not love the toys as much as others that I buy her in a store.  I paid the extra $9 for the Premium Toy Upgrade which I think meant a cuter toy not necessarily a higher quality toy that will last a long time.

If your dog is not rough on toys, this might be a really good service.  My preference would be to buy Pixie one higher quality toy that she will enjoy for a longer amount of time.

Pixie also has a very sensitive system and I am very careful about which treats I give her.  I wish that you could select your dog's dietary restrictions.  I will not let her eat the treats and will be donating them to Wags & Walks Dog Rescue!
