August Barkbox Review

The middle of the month is very popular around here.  Sometime around the 15th of the month, our Barkbox arrives!  The Aussies know when it’s here, because unlike the other boxes that arrive on our porch this one always smells like treats.  As soon as I bring the box into the house the Aussies are following me around, herding me into the family room so I can open it.

This month’s box was another hit!

Checking out the goodies!

This month’s box was awesome!  The first item out of the box and quickly out of the packaging was the Hyper Pet™ Flying Series Slingshot Flying Pig.   This is a slingshot toy that can shoot over 100 feet!  We haven’t tried it outside yet, but it certainly flys far in the house!  The Aussies also love the rope toy attached to the pig.  I’m not sure how long the pig will last around here, as it seems ripe for holes from Aussie teeth, but no stuffed toy lasts very long at our house anyway.  This one is a big hit right now, though!

The Aussie’s least favorite item in this month’s box was my favorite.  The NATURE’S MIRACLE Freshening Spray for Dogs is like a leave-in conditioner for dogs.  You can use it between baths to keep your dogs smelling fresh and clean.  The Aussies are not big fans of taking baths and they tend to dislike anything that represents bath time. However, I can’t wait to use this to keep them smelling fresh and clean!

This box also included a moose antler from Acadia Antlers! Dublin and Bailey LOVE LOVE LOVE antlers.  We have deer antlers and elk antlers laying all over the house.  I haven’t given them the Acadia Antler yet because we only have one and that won’t go over very well. As soon as I have another moose antler they will be thrilled to chew away on them. Antlers are awesome because they last forever, they don’t break, and the marrow is delicious (to the dogs)!  They also don’t smell and don’t stain, which makes this owner quite happy.  Plus, they are a renewable resource, as they are collected after the deer, elk, or moose drops them each year.

Finally, we got two bags of treats this time.  First, we got a sample of Milkbone’s new Trail Mix for Dogs.  The Aussies tore through that and it’s already gone!  But the best treat is the Bocce’s Bakery Elvis, a banana, peanut butter, and turkey bacon treat.  The Aussies sniffed that out immediately and I think they would have eaten the whole bag right then if I let them.  But we are trying to ration the delicious treats!  Just a few each day.  🙂

Once again, Barkbox hits it out of the park!  I enjoy each month’s offerings almost as much as the Aussies do!
