August 2014 BarkBox Review

We received our August BarkBox earlier this week.  Reviews of previous and or current BarkBoxes can be read HERE.

The Goods

Petrageous Lobster Toy.  Cute toy that squeaks and floats.  Unfortunately, it does not feel very durable, so I do not think it will stand up to my crew.  This will be going in the shelter donation box, so it can be given to a dog who can appropriately play with it.  Receiving this does encourage me to find a more durable floating toy to toss in the pond for my dogs, though.

Grandma Bowser's.  Biscuit type treats with decent treats.  These do contain cheese, so I am hoping that even picky turd Faolan will eat them.  I am certain that both Neeko and Bruce will with no hesitation.

Jolly Pets Romp-N-Roll.  Approximate retail value $11.21.  My dogs LOVE Jolly Balls.  We have four of them.  This combines a Jolly Ball with a rope, which they also enjoy (under supervision.)  This is certain to be a big hit.  Guess what??  It floats!  I found my more durable floating toy for them!

Bocce's Bakery Lobster Roll Treats.  Approximate retail value $9.49.  We have received treats from this company in the past, and all made of quality, very simple ingredients.  These are no exception. They contain organic barley flour, lobster, organic kelp and parsley. However, I am deathly (anaphylaxis) allergic to shellfish.  Sad face.  I am a little paranoid about this, so I will not handle these treats.  Instead, they will be either donated to the shelter or another dog I know.

This month's BarkBox is not bad, but two of the four items I cannot use for my dogs.  Other dogs can easily use them, though.  I am a bit disappointed that it only included four items, though.

  1. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the bark box this month! The Jolly ball looks fun! I've been thinking about getting one. I'm trying to talk my husband into a Bark Box subscription! LOL

  2. The lobster wouldn't last more than a minute here either. The jolly ball is pretty sweet though. Scary about the last treat; glad you read the ingredients (although I assume anyone with bad food allergies has to do so) and the big LOBSTER on the front might have given it away.

  3. Heyyy, that Jolly Pets ball looks like fun! :O
    How long did you subscribe to BarkBox for? I'm considering it for my pups..

  4. Love the lobster. Have fun and have a serene easy Sunday now.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. We got a couple of good toys this month too (different ones), but we also thought only 4 items seemed kind of light. The treats do look good though....we got the cheddar biscuits and some different seafood ones. We've been wanting to try a Jolly Ball though, so I wish we had gotten one (we got a small ball that's supposed to bounce off the water...haven't tested it yet though).

  6. I am loving that lobster toy. I wish we received the toys you got in ours!


Thanks for the howls!!
