Ask a handful of businesses whether their service that allows the option of subscribing to boxes of goods is a "subscription box service," several will likely explain why they are not. Stitch Fix eschewed the label when marketing its public offering to investors, sources have told CNBC. (Stitch Fix offers customers the chance to buy without a subscription or change the frequency of their subscription.) Amazon similarly contends its Amazon prime wardrobe service is not a subscription box service.
Many of your dog's toys should be interactive. Interactive play is very important for your dog because he needs active "people time." By focusing on a specific task, like repeatedly returning a ball, Kong® or Frisbee ®, or playing "hide-and-seek" with treats or toys, your dog can expend pent-up mental and physical energy in a limited amount of time and space. This greatly reduces stress due to confinement, isolation and/or boredom. For young, high-energy and untrained dogs, interactive play also offers an opportunity for socialization and helps them learn about appropriate and inappropriate behavior, such as jumping up or being mouthy.
“Pollie loves to run around our farm showing off her new barkbox treats to her sheep friends. We always get her an extra toy as she is a heavy chewer and toys are ripped in minutes. Thankfully, Barkbox sometimes offers toys with no filling and most of them are squeaky toys which Pollie adores. They even offer to exchange a product if Pollie doesn’t like it.”
We recently underwent a very large warehouse move for the month of July. In doing so we had a few hiccups with some of our boxes. Then also there was limited inventory in our new warehouse. Which would be why that replacement order was canceled. I can totally understand your frustration with the back and fourth and the confusion. So we would love to make this right for you and turn this experience around in the best way that we can. Please email us directly at Lindz@barkbox.com and we would love to help!
Unfortunately I had to cancel my bark box subscription. I have huge dogs, aggressive chewers. Each month they send a toy, a stuffed toy. Which lasts all of 15 minutes with my dogs… I contacted Bark box month after month requesting non stuffed toys. Each month they stated OK we will fix this, each month a stuffed toy. — Kathleen K., k9ofmine.com, 2/23/2015

Thanks so much for your kind words Carrie and Angel! We are so very lucky to have you guys in the pack and to be able to spoil Angel! Tell Angel if she wants more monthly chews in her boxes we are now able to customize our boxes to get more of some items and less of another. You can email us directly at Lindz@barkbox.com if that sounds like something she would love to do! Give her all of the love and pets from us here! Then if you need anything at all going forward please don't hesitate to let us know.

The box contains only healthy treats and chews made in the United States and Canada with just high-quality ingredients. All the ingredients are free from wheat, corn, and soy. On top of that, you have the option of allergy-friendly boxes when you order for them. Just the low cost makes Barkbox worth it and a great idea. You positively get more than the worth of your money in your monthly BarkBox with some bonus toys included. You get hidden balls or smaller toys inside the toy as soon as the original toy is destroyed.
Dog toys are at the heart of most bonding moments between pet and parent. That’s because dogs of all ages thrive on regular exercise and interaction to keep them happy and healthy. Toys for dogs are key to helping your furry family member stay occupied, stimulated and content, as well as a great way for pet parents to interact with their pets in a fun, positive way. An entertaining and durable dog toy will effectively keep your dog busy and make them less likely to get bored and take out their energy on off-limit items like shoes, important documents, and more.
I have been using BarkBox for over a year now. And even as I write this and was speaking aloud my dog sat straight up and looked at me when he heard the words BarkBox! It has become a phrase in my house to get the pups to come or do as I say by simply saying those two wonderful words BARKBOX! I have two dachshunds that absolutely love their toys every month, and have even learned when each month to start expecting them and literally watching out the window! But my babies aren't the only ones in love with this company... Over the past year I have found the BarkBox employees to be by far the most kind caring and helpful of any company I have ever dealt with. I have never done one of these reviews before but I created an account for just this company. Greatness like this should be acknowledged!
Me and Winne love bark box!!!!!! They have the most amazing customer service that I've ever dealt with. We had an incident were Winnie's barkbox got thrown over the fence and she shredded it and destroyed the whole box and treats. I contacted bark box and they sent us a new box without question. They were very personal and recommended I watch Winnie to make sure she didn't get sick from consuming all those treats and possibly shreds of the packaging. I've also contact them before this telling them that Winnie destroys every toy she received and they upgraded my account to extra durable toys with no up charge. She still shreds all the plush toys she gets but some of the other toys that aren't cloth she hasn't put a scratch on. In my box every month I receive 2-3 toys, 2 bags of treats, and some type of chewing treat like a bone. I also love bark box because all the products and treats in it are good for your dog. If you read the ingredients on the back there isn't any outrageous names that you don't know the meaning to.  All the treats are so healthy. Literally one of the treat packages I got was dried sheep lungs and that was the only ingredient on the package. BarkBox

Within the next few years, 3.6 billion people will use messaging apps—that’s about about half of humanity. It’s hardly a surprise that brands are scrambling to gain a toehold on these popular channels. Both Facebook and Twitter have seen the demand and they’ve recently created tools to help businesses interact with their customers more effectively over their respective apps.
