February 2014 BarkBox Review

Today we received our February BarkBox!  Reviews of the current and/or previous months can be read HERE.

Last month, the nice folks at BarkBox suggested I email them and ask for the "heavy chewer" box.  I did, and am very happy I did so!

The Goods
whats in a barkbox
 Harry Barker Cotton Rope Tug and Toss Toy Approximate retail value $9.90.  Heavy duty, durable rope toy.  The knot is super thick.  I am sure this will provide some good, supervised tugging fun outside when the weather gets nicer.  We received a toy from this company in our March 2013 BarkBox, and donated it to the shelter.  We will definitely be keeping this one for ourselves.










tendon chew for dog
 Heartland Premium Angus Tendons.  I am guessing at the value, but maybe $5.99?  I have offered similar chews to my dogs in the past, and they last nearly as long as a similarly sized bully stick.  What's even better is that this is a three pack!  Any kind of long lasting chew is always appreciated in my house, and I am certain these will be a huge hit.











cheese please dog treat, dehydrated cheese
Complete Natural Nutrition Cheese Please Approximate retail value $5.74.  We received these in our September 2013 Spoiled Rotten Box, and they were very well received.  I like these because there is only one ingredient.  Dehydrated Wisconsin cheese.  I am not ashamed to admit that I sampled these when we received them before, and found them very tasty.  Very excited to have received these.




vegan dog treats, organic dog treats
Max & Ruffy's Natural Organic Treats for Dogs Approximate retail value $11.94.  We received a product from this company in our July 2013 BarkBox, and they were well received by Neeko and Faolan.  Like the other ones, Bruce cannot have these as they contain coconut oil.  Simple, organic ingredients, and given that they are chocolate (carob) strawberry flavored, I might want to eat them!  These are made in the US by a smallish company.  What's not to like?



Baker's Best by Feelgood Wild Pacific dog treats.  Unknown value.  These Canadian made treats contain quality, simple ingredients, with salmon being first.  They are thin biscuit type treats, and fairly hard.  They do have a "fishy" smell to them, but this is not a bad thing at all.  In fact, the stronger the smell a treat has, the harder my dogs are willing to work for it.  We received Ranch Bars made by the same company in our March 2013 BarkBox, and if I remember correctly, all three liked them. These treats are wheat, corn, and soy free, and I am quite sure they will go over well.  I can already see Faolan scent-rolling on one of them when he is offered it initially.





I am VERY impressed with this month's BarkBox.  The chews, the rope toy, the treats.  I am very pleased with each individual item, which leads me to be extremely happy with the BarkBox overall!
