As a first time dog owner, I definitely spoil my semi-rambunctious Shiba Inu girl. Spoil her enough to sign up for a subscription service for her! I’m always getting her new treats and toys and I shy away from getting lower grade products that you’ll usually find at big chain suppliers like Petco and Petsmart. It’s hard to find healthier alternatives especially when I don’t have a means of knowing what brands are indeed good. (Brands made popular from heavy advertisements and commercials are usually the ones you should stay away.) BarkBox caught my eye when it showed up as a Groupon deal a few times.
A quick Google search shows that they have fairly decent products in each box. Although it is a pricey $29/month subscription with free shipping, but they guarantee that each box will have $40 value plus 10% of their proceeds are donated to animal shelters. Prices are better if you subscribe for a longer term. The Groupon deal yielded to $18.33/month for 6 month subscription for me. That’s close to how much I spend on a monthly basis for my dog so it didn’t take me that long to click the “Checkout” button.
