What’s In My BarkBox?

23 May

May’s BarkBox is “a celebration of all the things we love about being outside.” With lots of thing to chew on, each product represents a different activity we can do to enjoy the springtime. Firstly, BarkBox has a new look! Check it out:

Instead of the shreds of blue paper that used to come inside our BarkBox, we now have the classy, branded paper wrapping our goodies! So fancy! Take a closer look:

It’s lovely, I just wish it didn’t have some of the words that typically have a negative connotation, like growl, yap and guard. Along with the new packaging also comes a new little tip card, with a cute little cartoon:

On the back, it reads, “Our dogs love their goodies, but their favorite thing in the world is to spend time with their humans. A great spring activity is to simply take out the leash and go exploring to a new park or neighborhood.” We completely agree! Get out there with your pup and explore! Now to the good stuff…

First up, from Planet Dog, we got an Orbee-Tuff ball! These durable toys are great for fetch, as well as just keeping your dog entertained on its own for a while. Best of all, they’re minty-fresh so they help cover up the sometimes unpleasant odors that come from your pup’s mouth!

Next up, we got a pig femur bone from Barkworthies! The best kind of distraction for a pup when you need to get some work done around the house, this will keep your dog busy for quite a long time!

To represent the joy of a spring/summer time BBQ, we got Loving Pets’ Grill-icious Beef Treats! Made with sweet potato, these are super healthy and all natural. They’ll make a great special snack when Lucy is behaving especially well.

And finally, from one of our favorite local dog treat companies, we got Bocce’s Bakery’s Green Juice treats! These are the perfect treat for Lucy, who has allergies to certain proteins. Made exclusively from spinach, kale, apple, spirulina, flax seeds and mint, these snacks are right up our alley!

      Hi Heather. We will not have any puppies younger than a year of age. There will be many more organizations there that may have what you’re looking for.

    I was really excited about the Orbee ball since it had such a good durability rating. Unfortunately one of the ‘countries’ was removed from the globe in literally less than a minute! The search for indestructible continues…..

      Queen of Zoom, that happened with my orbee ball so I just pulled off all the countries and the top circle. The ball has lasted very well since then. Don’t throw it out. I have had it for over a year with my Shepherd Mix.

        Thanks, I’ll probably give that a try. My dogs love balls, certainly can’t have too many of them around!

    My dog is so jealous. He says that pork bone sounds very good about now! Nice pictures of all your goodies.
