Barkbox April & May 2015 + Get a Free Box!

I haven’t updated on my Shiba Inu’s Barkbox for awhile. But Barkbox has sent me a special offer to my friends (lucky for you guys!), you get to try out Barkbox for FREE! Just follow this link and you will automatically get a free box or $29 off a longer subscription! Remember you will have to cancel the subscription after your first box to prevent being charged. Not sure when that expires, but if it does, you always get an additional free box with any subscription sign up here.

Curious on what I got for the last two months? My pup was heads over paws on the April box which was Fitness themed. Approx $37 value.

BarkBox – April 2015 Fitness Theme

  • Fabdog Boxing Gloves $16- a super adorable squeaky plush toy! So cute and durable. My dog hasn’t stopped flinging it around and no issues with it for the whole month.
  • JW Pet Muscle Man Cuz $5- I already own a few of these JW squeaky toys. Super durable and bouncy and not a chip on any of mine. One of them I’ve had for 2 years now, aside from it being a little dirty, a much better alternative than tennis balls.
  • Nootie LLC Peanut Butter Pleasers $7 – Soft breakable treats that are perfect for training. Not sold elsewhere
  • Green Bark Gummies Helath and Vitality $6 – Another yummy treat that my dog loves. But sounds like those neohealth products. CHIA seeds?!
  • Etta Says Elk Chew $3 – These chews frequent the Barkbox subscriptions but my dog LOVES it and it’s always the first thing she tries to grab out of the box to run away with.

BarkBox January 2015 Review

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.
