No idea why this never got published! Here you go! Sorry it’s so late!

Clyde’s BarkBox was pretty cool this month! Clyde got his first bullystick ever and LOVED it! Yay! I’m super excited about the toys and the Turducken treats! So many cool things! Here’s what the box contained:DSC_0077DSC_0079

Petmate Chef Heggies – Stuffed hedgehog created by Petmate just for BarkBox.
Feelgood Treat Company Slow Roasted Rosemary Turducken (Oat + Rice) – The poultry trifecta of treats! Made with turkey, duck, and chicken.
Barkworthies Junior bully Stick – Made with 100% beef bladder! Pups find them long lasting and delicious. No chemicals or preservatives are used, making them a clear winner over other chews like rawhide.
PetSafe Squeak ‘n Treat Booya – This treat dispensing toy from PetSafe helps extend meal time into playtime! Squeaky and durable for heavy chewers, you can cut the prongs inside to adjust the difficulty of treat extraction and extend playtime even longer.
Diggin Your Dog Charki-O’s – Charki-O’s have been known to cause addiction…to more Charki-O’s! These freeze-dried beef trachea treats are topped with liver sprinkles and are paw-licking good.DSC_0080

So far Clyde has loved the bully stick, it was gone in like 10 minutes! And the hedgehog he has been throwing around the livingroom and the Booya treat toy is puzzling him. Check out the pictures from BarkBox day!

BarkBox: October 2014

Clyde loved his October Barkbox! I think he loves every Barkbox, but he really loved the Day of the Dead doll that came in this one. He is still playing with it to this day! Silly little guy! Here is what came in the October box.

October Contents:

20141031_180310
Safemade Dia de los Muertos Skull (Clyde’s favorite) – $11 value, this toy has held up to Clyde constantly playing with it. It has extra trim around the sides for durability.
Hare of the Dog Rabbit Jerky Stick – I haven’t given this to Clyde yet. I’m sure he will love it when I do ($3 value).
Wet Noses Pumpkin biscuits – We haven’t tried these yet either. Agility gave him too many treats so they are very sparingly now ($2 value).

20141031_180404
American Dog Toys Flash & Glow Ball – This ball constantly gets stuck under the couch, but it is easy to find with its flashing lights! Clyde loves playing with balls (haha, yes I’m 2 sometimes), and this seems to be a good one for him ($9 value).
Snicky Snaks Cinnamon Crunch Bar – Clyde really liked this one. I think he ate the whole bar in like 2 seconds! ($2 value)
Superior Farms Venison Crepe – I gave this one to Clyde on Halloween! He loved it! He loves super crunchy things. Probably why he loves knuckle bones so much! ($8 value)

BarkBox is a subscription service that sends a box of goodies to your dog every month. You can pick boxes depending on the size of your dog. Clyde gets a medium box and it’s $39.95 per month. The other really cool thing about BarkBox is that should Clyde not love an item in his box they will replace it! This is huge! I love that I get to try new things with Clyde and I don’t have to worry about him being disappointed.

I was not compensated by Barkbox in any way to write a review for Barkbox. All opinions are my own.

September BarkBox

Clyde’s BarkBox was kind of exciting this month! I think he really liked it actually. Here’s what it contained.

PetProjekt Football Tretbal
Etta Says Duck Chew
Muddy Buddy Dog Mop
Safemade Pet Barkeley Pennant
Nootie Jerky Burger BBQ Duck

I have to say the dog mop was amazing! I used it on Clyde after his last bath and it really did soak up a TON of the water! Way better than a standard bath towel ever could.

Clyde is also always playing with the football. So much that I haven’t even been able to test out putting treats in it! He loves balls though. He could play with them all day, every day.

Clyde isn’t very interested in the pennant. I think it’s been sitting in the same spot since I gave it to him out of the box. Oh well, not every toy can be a hit I suppose.

We haven’t had a chance for the treats or the duck chew. In due time. He started agility training so that may be a good place to use up some of the treats we’ve been getting in the boxes. Score!

August Barkbox

Clyde’s August Barkbox contained some great stuff! It felt like it came late this month, but I think that’s just how the month landed on days of the week.

Anyway, this month’s Barkbox contained:
Jax and Bones Nautical Wheel Rope Toy
Feel Good Treat Co Seafood Chowder
Waboba Fetch (A ball that bounces on the surface of the water)
Grandma Bowser’s Cheddar Biscuits
Safemade Nautical Bandana

Clyde seems to really enjoy the rope toy and liked the cheddar biscuits. He isn’t so impressed with the bandana, but lets be fair he isn’t impressed with any clothes. He barely tolerates his collar, but he was a good sport about the bandana photo shoot.

May Barkbox

Posted on

We got Clyde’s BarkBox last week! It’s always an exciting time around here. Clyde gets super excited when he knows something is for him, let alone a whole box! It’s basically doggy heaven!

This month we got:
Bionic Rubber Bone – you can stuff the ends with peanut butter, it’s great for chewing and fetching. The bone is made with FDA food grade materials and tested in shelters with steel-jawed pups.
Nootie BBQ Chicken Jerky – is made in the USA and can be broken into bite-sized bits.
Etta Says Duck Chew – Made with novel proteins, which is perfect for pups with common meat allergies.
Max & Ruffy’s Snacks – Made in Maryland, sourced from organic strawberries and carob. Only organic, human grade, non-genetically modified fruit is used.
Zukes Clean Crisp Bone – Long lasting, grain free, and filled with antioxidants. They are made with flavors straight from the famer’s market like carrot, berry and apple.

So far Clyde has had the duck chew and the Bionic Bone. He loved the duck chew. He chewed it up super fast, but he hasn’t shown much interest in the bone. Maybe it will just take time. Not really sure. We had a pretty big weekend and I think he’s still recovering. So we’ll see how the rest of the treats go.

Do you get your pups anything special? I love the BarkBox because I get to try things that I normally wouldn’t get for Clyde. It’s great.

Clyde’s First Barkbox

Posted on

A few weeks ago I decided to order Clyde a BarkBox. I thought what the heck, maybe it will be a fun new way for Clyde to try some new things! I have to say I’m quite impressed with what came in the box.

JW Pet Super-Tough Megalastomer, Megalast Ball
Quaker Pet Group-Hear Doggy! Ultrasonic Toy, skunk
Riley’s Organics-Peanut Butter & Molasses Large Bones
Mr. Barksmith’s-Carrot Cake Smoothie
Complete Natural Nutrition-Smoky Beef Dog Treats

April BarkBox

So far Clyde is completely fascinated by the skunk ultrasonic toy. It’s kind of nice to not hear the squeaking of the toy while he pushes and pushes the squeaker. I don’t know if he can actually hear it or not, but hey, if he’s happy I’m happy.

I also gave him one of the peanut butter and molasses bones, he seemed to really enjoy that as well. I think this might be a really good investment for Clyde! And for only $30 per month it’s not too hard on the pocketbook either!

Have you tried the BarkBox? What do you think? Any other fun or exciting dog things you do for your dog or pet? I get told all the time that I spoil Clyde. Well he’s my furbaby and I’ll spoil him if I want to!
