June BarkBox Review

Yesterday we received our June BarkBox.

The Goods

 Dale Edgar Calm K9 Nutri-Wafers.  Approximate retail value $7.95.  Not truly a treat, but a calming supplement disguised as a treat.  Decent ingredients.  I have not yet tried these, but Faolan is in need of a nail trim, so I may use one prior to that adventure.

Butcher's Block Bones the Champ.  Approximate retail value $12.00.  Not something I will give my dogs.  These smoked bones are teeth breakers for any dog with good jaw strength.  I will put this in the bag to take to the shelter.

Puptato Sweet Potato Chips.  Approximate retail value $3.99.  Nice, simple treats.  I was hopeful for these, but sadly all three mutts turned their noses up at them.  I took them across the street to my awesome neighbors, where there dogs ate them with gusto.

Bowser Beer Beefy Brown Ale.  Approximate retail value $3.50. Gimmicky.  Though, I will admit, my crew loves beer, and I share with them on occasion.  According to the website, all ingredients are USA sourced.  Non-alcoholic, non-carbonated.  It is made from malt barley, and contains glucosamine.  The website suggests pouring over crushed ice, which is probably what I will do.

Whole Life Pet Products Tail Mix.  Approximate retail value $6.29.  I am a big fan of this company, and have purchased their dehydrated fish treats on more than one occasion.  This is my favorite item in this month's box.  Neeko, Bruce, and Faolan love these treats!  They are stinky, and the entire crew's butts hit the floor as soon as they get a whiff of them.  They are willing to work for them as well. 

Overall, I am disappointed in this month's BarkBox.  If you are interested in ordering a BarkBox, follow this link to get $5 off.

  1. I feel the same about this box. I didn't get mine yet, but saw the contents on the app. This is the worst Barkbox I've seen. No toys? Bones for the past 3 months? Hmm....

  2. I am surprised that there are no toys or balls! Bummer. Well, the beer and the stinky treaties look FABulous!

  3. Sorry I couldn't stop and read, our Barkbox hasn't arrived yet and didn't want to spoil anything. Wanted to say hi though!

  4. we had to skip too because we are eagerly awaiting our bark box, we just love them so much. all your dogs are so gorgeous

  5. Hi Rekekah, very sorry that you didnt like this month box - but glad that Neeko, Bruce, and Faolan at least enjoyed the Whole Life tail mix. These posts are really useful for us so that we get a better understanding of what people like and dont like. So thank you so much and fingers crossed you and your wonderful pups like the next one. (spoiler alert; it does have a toy :)
    Have a great weekend - Henrik (barkbox founder)

  6. My boyfriend snuck both of my dogs one of the calming wafers behind my back. A bit over half an hour later, and I actually commented: "Geesh. They're pretty calm tonight," and then he admitted what he did. So, they seem to do the trick!


Thanks for the howls!!
