As a new dog owner, I’m finding that the two main expenses that come with owning a dog are 1. A constant supply of food, treats, and poop bags, and 2. Frivolous toys that your dog maybe doesn’t need but that are just too cute to pass up [see: this taco and ice cream cone squeaker set]. The reality is that having a pet means spending money, and it’s near impossible to not splurge a little when you have a Very Good Boy who loves his mustachioed acorn even more than you love expensive coffee and weighted blankets.
But when you subscribe to BarkBox (starting at $22/month but valued at more than $40!), you won’t have to feel like you’re throwing away money. Each monthly box provides your pup with a constant supply of treats and several indestructible chew toys that also happen to be the cutest things you will ever see. The best part? Every month is a surprise, so you’ll be just as excited as your fur baby when the mailman shows up with his latest BarkBox.
This month, my super-chewer puppy Neo got the “The Barkies” themed box. It included a squeaky Barkie Award and ball (he won Best New Smell), a chewable tuxedo bib, a “barkquet” of roses, and grain-free, all-natural treats named “Best Duck-umentary.” I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. The people at BarkBox have not only the cheekiest ideas, but really seem to know what dogs love. I was surprised how quickly these toys and treats became Neo’s favorites.
Here are some other themed BarkBoxes your pup will adore:
