June 2014 BarkBox Review

We received our June BarkBox today, which is always exciting.  Reviews of the current month and previous month's BarkBoxes can be read HERE.

The Goods

Romp! Silly Buns Monkey Toy.  Approximate retail value $9.29.  This toy is cute and hilarious, because I sometimes have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy.  There is no head to it, just a butt and legs.  It is a plush that is crinkly.  While incredibly cute, this would not last five seconds with my dogs, and will probably go into the donation box.  Or I might just keep it because it is so cute.

Green Bark Gummies Hip and Joint Bites.  Approximate retail value $11.82.  We received these in our April PetBox, in which I picked the items.  These will go to good use with Neeko, although she requires 10 of them daily to get the suggested dose.  They are not a true supplement in that sense.  Faolan will not eat these, and Bruce cannot, as they have yeast in them.  They are cute, teddy bear-shaped gummy treats, which Neeko seems to enjoy.

Benebone.  Approximate retail value $11.95.  Durable nylon chews are always appreciated and well-received in my house, and this will probably be no exception.  Made in the USA, which of course I love. It is bacon flavored, but does not seem to have a noticeable odor to it.  It is decent sized, so I am comfortable that it is not a choking hazard.  The only question is which dog gets first go at it?

Benny Bully's Beef Liver and Banana Treats.  Unknown retail value.  Freeze dried treats containing two ingredients-banana and beef liver, both sourced from the USA.  Gotta love that.  These are incredibly light weight square shaped treats, which easily break into smaller pieces.  All three dogs love them, and it is kind of funny to watch them eat a bite, because it seems to dissolve immediately in their mouth.  There was minimal crumbling in the bag, which makes me happy.  I am pleased with these.  

Overall, this month's BarkBox is okay.  Four items, three of which I will use.  I am really pleased with the liver treats and the Benebone.  To try BarkBox for yourself and receive 10 percent off of your order, click HERE.

I am a BarkBox subscriber.  I am not affiliated with BarkBox, nor am I asked to do these reviews.  All opinions are strictly my own.


  1. I was kind of bummed by our subscription (different brand) this month. Yours looks much better.

  2. We can't wait to get our BarkBox! :)

    We love Benny Bullys. I always thought they were a Canadian company.

  3. My dogs love their Benebones. Nylon chew bones are not my favorite but the dogs don't care! They usually get theirs for about an hour in the evenings, after they play the game of who has the better one (I have one each in peanut butter and bacon flavors). I really like your subscription box reviews! I got my first Paw Pack today, which was the coolest one I've ever received (also one of the priciest) but I was too excited to dig into it to bother with pictures and a review.


Thanks for the howls!!
