August 2015 BarkBox Review

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

This month's theme is "Block Pawty."

The Goods

Healthy Dogma Bacon Barkers. Approximate retail value $4.75.  Small biscuit type treats.  Relatively simple ingredients, and corn, wheat, soy and yeast-free.  I know for a fact that Bruce will love these!

SodaPup Toy.  Approximate retail value $12.99.  KONG like toy made in the USA of natural rubber.  Medium size opening on bottom, small opening on top.  Cute, and who cannot use another treat dispensing toy?

Bocce's Bakery Chicken Biscuits.  Approximate retail value $10.30.  Four(!!) ingredients in these treats!  We have received products from this company in the past, and they have always gone over well.  I am sure these will be no exception.

Butcher's Block Steer Stick.  Approximate retail value $3.00.  I am not quite sure this was a "true" bully stick.  It was not the normal shape, and did not last nearly as long as a bully stick typically does.  Faolan certainly enjoyed it, though.  I am always happy with dehydrated chews.

Melon Collie Watermelon Toy.  Approximate retail value $11.00.  Cute toy that fits in with the summertime theme.  As with nearly every other plush/stuffed toy, this is not durable enough for my dogs, as Neeko has already demonstrated.  She carefully dissected it, and removed the largest squeaker I have seen from within it.  But she enjoyed doing so.  This makes me think of Smashing Pumpkins.  I really hope someone gets that reference.

I am pleased with this month's BarkBox.  One thing I have noticed is that most all the treats recently have been biscuits, when my particular dogs seem to prefer moist or dehydrated meat treats.  Just a commentary, not a complaint.
