    Default Bark Box?

    Has anyone ever bought a Bark Box before? Just curious b/c today there's a special where you buy a box and you get another one free to give to a rescue.

    I like the idea of giving/receiving a box of goodies every month but wondering if it's something worthwhile.

    Brutus has too many allergies to get something like that. I think it has treats in it. He also can only have certain toys. Giving it to a rescue is a nice idea though.

    Never heard of it before. But if it is for a lw price etc...I do not think i would sign up for it due to the pot luck of goodies that might not be bully friendly.

    As far as donations to a rescue...I can donate to our local rescues instead of relying on the profits from a business going to a rescue..

    I just like the concept of getting a "surprise" box every month. I guess more for me than my bulldogs though! But true, you cannot control what they put into the box and some items wouldn't be appropriate for all our bullies. I wish there was a way to have a more "customized' box sent. I did read that most of the toys are from US or Canada, treats are from US and they try to get the best ingredients, organic, etc...

    I have seen that too Henny, but I figured most of the stuff we couldn't use anyway… I agree they should let you somewhat customize the box!!!

    I went ahead and got a 6month subscription. The reviews were pretty favorable overall and I used a Groupon It will be the boys' Christmas present and I figured I could have them test it out for a few months, then cancel if it's not for us. Also, their "mascot" is an English Bulldog so how could I resist?!

    We tried it too. In our first box we got coconut flakes, rabbit jerky and 2 toys that trigger couldn't have. They were not tough enough for him. Brought them to shelter. ( Trigger wrecks everything. .. everything. .... yes, everything. Winston doesn't play with toys. ) I emailed them and they changed ours to "strong chewer" they can't guarantee the toys will withstand a bully destroyer, which I understand. The next box had one sturdy toy and one that was holiday related (a rubberish turkey leg squeaker) and some yummy treats. Any treats they can't eat I bring to our local shelter. It does say they guarantee the stuff but when I called about the toys they did not send any replacement toys. I still look forward to it though. Have fun! !

    Yes, we have a few more coming and will reevaluate if we continue. Only because of trigger and my own selfishness - I hate seeing toys last 2 minutes....

    I don't do those boxes because the toys aren't very bully friend - aka can be ripped apart in 5 seconds flat -- and the treats contain grains. My Ruckus is a heavy chewer though, so maybe you'd have different luck.
