“Being a Bull Mastiff, Cooper was our house’s heavy weight champion. He needed a bit extra in everything. I wasn’t sure whether the treats in Barkbox would suit him and I thought the goodies might be tiny. The reviews I looked at were good. I thought of it as a onetime choice and ordered a box but now I’m a regular subscriber. As I opened the box, I could feel the amount of care the team from barkbox had taken to identify and customize these goody treats.”
I just started BarkBox for Zander. My first experience was a little wobbly. I went online and started a subscription, wanting to make the monthly payments, but it charged me the full annual fee of 235$. The problem was fixed pretty quickly and I got my refund. And a free regular box because they couldn't stop the order. So that was really great. I had to get everything straightened out over the phone because the website didn't give me the option to do the Super Chewer box with monthly payments. So after getting everything figured out I got my free box yesterday. My dog went absolutely crazy with joy. He loved the treats and has not put them down yet. Now being that this was a regular box, I already expected my dog to rip through them right away because he is a super chewer.
“Bling has always been our little princess. Barkbox has just made her more royal. It is so amazing to know that someone out there cares for your dog as they take pains to give an apt theme and customize it. We’ve always taken care to feed her high quality products and Barkbox offers much more than satisfaction in this area. They even send hygiene products occasionally which we sometimes re order from the Barkshop.”
I’ve had Bark Box for several months now. I purchased the “extra toy option” and with that we still only receive 3 toys every month and 2-3 treat. It’s not 4-6 toys. Wish it was. My dog is under 20 lbs. not sure if that would make a difference. I love their monthly themes! A surprise for me as well as I look forward to seeing what it is for the month.
Of course, all of the boxes have been scrutinized through our eyes. While I don’t claim that everyone will agree with our assessment, we do have some pretty high standards. Chester and Gretel are strong chewers so toys have to be quality, or have some kind of special sauce, to last around this house; we live in Seattle – the land of high-end, boutique pet stores; and I’ve seen some of the highest-quality, cutting edge products available at pet industry trade shows. We are not easy sells so I feel like when we say a subscription box is good, it really is.
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!
To enhance the health of your dog, Barkbox’s treats are of the highest standards. As mentioned above, they are corn, wheat, and soy free. But, that isn’t all, the items you receive are among the most organic items you will have in your home. The treats are all sourced from South America, New Zealand, Australia, USA, and Canada. What Barkbox promises you is that you won’t get dog products that the guys at Barkbox wouldn’t give their dogs.
BarkBox implemented Narvar to give customers clear, precise, and timely updates about their deliveries in a way that simplified the process for the team. Instead of deciphering a wide variety of different statuses from different carriers—each meaning something slightly different—now customers receive one of just three options: just shipped, on its way, or delivered. “Narvar puts everything into one universal template, which makes it much easier for customers to digest and deal with the information,” Snowden says about the current experience. “It removes a lot of the noise.”
It would be a total waste for my 3 1/2 pound adult toy poodle. She will not eat dog treats and never plays with toys. Her favorite treats are green beans out of the freezer or part of a mickey d’s hamburger and a few french fries. She is perfectly healthy for a 17 year old dog. Vet tells me to keep doing what I’m doing with her because she is healthier than a lot of small dogs half her age.
“When you tell customers when they should expect their shipments, they’re pretty good at holding you accountable to that,” Snowden says. But the homegrown fulfillment solution BarkBox was using made it difficult to communicate with customers when delivery information changed, and nearly impossible to get timely feedback when something went wrong. In the event of a delay, the information might not reach the customer until it was too late, and worse still, the customer would oftentimes reach out to the carrier’s customer support to get help. “The carriers of course do everything they can, but we as a brand lost the control over that experience,” Snowden says.
I ordered a gift for a friend's new dog. Neither my friend nor I received any information about the order in over two weeks: no tracking, no explanation for the delay, no updates within the order section of my account page, etc. My chats with the company went unanswered. The only acknowledgment of the order I received was the bill on my credit card. Disappointed and embarrassed to give such a crappy gift.
"Hide and Seek" is a fun game for dogs to play. "Found" toys are often much more attractive. Making an interactive game out of finding toys or treats is a good rainy-day activity for your dog, using up energy without the need for a lot of space. For example, scattering a handful of kibble in the grass or on a patterned carpet will require your dog to use his nose to find the food.
Hey Connie and Meme! We are so terribly sorry about this and that is not the experience that we want you to have at all. We are more than happy to clear this up for you and make sure you only get one box a month going forward. Then since you were getting two boxes for this month please feel free to donate the second extra box on us to a local shelter in your area!
Hey there Alexis and Zander! Thanks for your rating and welcome to the pack! We are so very sorry to hear that your checkout process with us was a little rocky! We recently changed out checkout process which would be why you ran into some trouble. We are so happy to hear that you got it all taken care of though! Then since your first box is not the super chewer box if Zander happens to rip through something let us know. We are always more than happy to send out another item on us that might work better! Just email us directly at email@example.com! Then we can't wait to hear all about how that super chewer box works out for you guys! We love hearing that the first box was such a hit! If you or Zander need anything else please just let us know. We are always more than happy to help at any time.
In November, Bark released its first major TV spot; airing on more than 25 networks including Animal Planet, Freeform and Lifetime, the 30-second spot was largely inspired by the user generated content that appears on social media feeds. The shoot took about 12 hours, while the shoot for a recent two-minute comedic video about dog moms during the holidays took about four days. The new sketch touches on what BarkBox videos often encompass: the weird dogs we live with and the funny things they do.
What you get: If your dog is notorious for being a power chewer then this box is for you. In every box, you’ll get toys and treats that are specially tailored to dogs who chew A LOT. Plus they have a killer guarantee which states that if your dog destroys any toy that they ship within 14 days, you’ll get a rougher and tougher toy sent straight to your door at no extra charge.

I ended up canceling my subscription. I was guaranteed replacement toys for my pup, a free toy for his birthday month and July’s Barkbox, and somehow they lost all three packages. They assured they would replace them, then canceled them without telling me. I only found out because I asked two weeks after the last conversation. There are so many options out there, shop around and stick within your country!
Emmy dislikes: All the toys were stuffed, which means I knew they'd be dead meat within hours. BUT thats not Barkbox's fault, it's mine — I didn't realize that you can upgrade to a "heavy chewer" box with toys of varying durability for free, or step it up a notch and order a "super chewer" version of the Barkbox for an additional $8–$10 a month, depending on your subscription plan, with extra-durable toys that have been tested on freakin' WOLVES. Regardless, I don't mind giving Tico stuffed toys every so often, because he has a lot of seemingly satisfying fun entertaining himself by pulling them apart, and he's not the kind of dog who eats non-edible things (thank god).
The three BarkBoxes that arrived at the office — for small, medium, and large dogs — featured a collection called "BarkBeard's Treasure," and it's exactly what you think: the cutest box of pirate-inspired toys and treats. And just in case you aren't sure what everything is about, there's a card that explains the month's theme with puns and wordplay, like "barkaneers," "ruff seas," "poop deck," and more. Honestly, I think I was more excited than our office dogs to explore what each BarkBox had to offer!
