So my dog's Barkbox came! I think I get just as excited as she does! I was really hoping there was a toy that "honks" because the turkey from the November Barkbox (whom we affectionately named Mr. Gobble Gobbles) was her FAVORITE toy that met an unfortunate end when they squeaker broke so I couldn't sew him back together (I have done "surgery" on Mr. Gobble Gobbles 3 times before because she loves playing with him and ripping out his stuffing). Anyways, I peaked on the Barkbox app and saw there was a "honking" toy so I was excited. As I mentioned last month, I decided to bump her up to the medium size dog instead of the small. She's 20 pounds and Barkbox recommends to size up if you are on the border (small is 0-20; medium is 20-50), or at least try it for a month or so and switch it back if you like the other size better. Any who, I ended up switching back to small after this one but I'll outline why in a bit...
So what was in the box?
-Duffle bag with 2 squeaker balls inside
-Hugo's Jet (center has a honking tone, the "engines" on the side have regular squeakers)
-Chic Snaps (made with chic peas-in the USA)
-Jet Pack's Treats (made with cheddar cheese and apples-in the USA)
-Bison chew (made in the USA)
My dog's thoughts:
She LOVED the Hugo Jet. She kept trying to get the honker in the middle but it was too big for her tiny mouth, so she resorted to just using the squeakers on the sides. She still tried to get the center one but was never able to. She sometimes plays with the Duffle bag for a bit. She likes to grab a handle and thrash it, but she gets bored of it quickly. Both treats she LOVED! She also loved the Bison chew...she ate it all in one sitting!
Overall, I liked the Box. The flight theme was super cute. I did find that the toys were just a little too big for her. She had a hard time getting to the squeakers, but she still enjoyed playing with them. I was personally disappointed by the duffle bag with the squeaker balls inside, because I thought you could open the bag to get out the balls, but you can't. The balls were also REALLY hard (even for me) to squeak. I think it was better suited for 40-50 pound dogs (which would count as a medium--so it was appropriate for the medium box). I think I just need to stick with the small because she loves squeaking her toys. I loved the treats she got in the medium size, they were perfect! However, the small size treats were fine too and she could squeak the smaller toys easier, so I switched back to the small. Overall, this was a super adorable Barkbox. I'm happy I was able to experiment with the different sizes and get the same amount of items for the same price! It's a nice deal!
