Yesterday my pup's October Barkbox came. I have the app, so I peaked early to see what was in inside. Usually I'm like "hmm.. wonder if she will like that" or "that is so cute, she will love that!" However, this time I saw one cute toy and one I really didn't like. It was my last month on my current plan, so I was kinda bummed.
It was a squeaky toy with a tombstone that said "RIP Squirrel." I knew I was being a little overly sensitive, but it just made me a little uncomfortable having my dog have a tombstone toy. I know Barkbox lets you get new treats if your dog doesn't like the product, so I did some digging and found out you could do that for toys as well... so i figured it wouldn't hurt to ask! I emailed them and within a few hours got a customized and very friendly response back saying they would send me another toy and completely understood. Their only request was that I donate the toy to a shelter, which I am more than happy to do because I stay in touch with the rescue I got my pup from :)! I was just blown away by how nice they were and willing to make accommodations so I was satisfied. Consequently, I ended up buying another subscription package...this time for 6 months! I just like this company and they always ensure that my pup and I are happy. 6 months will take us to the one year mark of me adopting her, so I think that'll be good.
So what was in the box?
-Beef bites (in a resealable bag)
-Sliced femur bites (2 small chews in a plastic wrap)
-Ghoul Gobblers (duck and pumpkin dog treats, in a resealable bag)
-Rest in pieces Tombstone (squeaky toy)...which is being replaced by a peas in a pod squeaky toy (read above story for details why) [both can be seen in the picture attached]
-Broomstick squeaky toy.
TOY UPDATE: We got the Peas in a pod squeaky toy and it is now one of her favorites. She loves taking them out of the pod and then squeaking them in her mouth. She sometimes pounces on one and then the one next to it rolls away, so she runs after it and hits another one (etc...). This gives her a long time of entertainment and it is just so cute to watch. I'm so happy with it! :)
My dog loved all the treats. She even tried to get the other sliced femur chew once she ate the soft stuff out of the one. She was very happy with them all! I love that they are made in the USA with high quality ingredients, so we are both happy! I am super happy with the new toy we are getting, because the three peas are squeakers and fit into a crinkly bag for the pod. My dog LOVES the broom, because the whole "wood" part of the broom is a squeaker, so it doesn't matter where she grabs to make it squeak. Plus, she loves pulling on things, so she likes biting and pulling at the ends of fabric on the broom. Overall, my dog and I are both happy...Hence why I updated my subscription for 6 more months :)!
I don't get this at a discount or anything, I just want to let you guys know my honest and unbiased thoughts about this service! :)
