Do you love getting mail? How about unexpected packages? I sure do.
As a review blogger I get a lot of packages delivered to my door that I do expect, but every now and then I receive a surprise in the mail. I love it when that happens.
My kids love getting mail or surprise packages too. When they were little I used to order small things for them so that they had mail and/or packages to open up. They even got excited when a magazine showed up in the mailbox.
I think we all appreciate getting fun surprises in the mail. And I’m sure we can all agree that we don’t like receiving things marked “DUE NOW” in big, bold, red letters. LOL!
Every time I get a package delivered my dog is always right there, practically on top of me, trying to see what is inside. Occasionally I do get pet related products to review. I feel bad when our cats receive goodies and not our dog, and vice versa. No matter who it’s for our dog Espn (pronounced Es-pin) is always hovering over the box to see if there is anything inside for him.
Bark Box is a monthly subscription service that sends your dog 4-6 innovative dog toys, treats, gadgets, and goodies. Most of the products are considered “specialty” items.
Bark Box has different monthly boxes depending on the size of your dog. That way your Chihuahua doesn’t receive a huge toy meant for a Great Dane and your Rottweiler won’t receive treats specifically made for a Yorkie. You specify what size dog you have so that Bark Box knows what types of products to send.
Each month you get something different. It’s a fun way to explore new products and brands you might not otherwise know about. Plus your dog will love all his special goodies.
Bark Box sent me a box to review. Inside I found the following products.
Heartland Premium Bone
A real bone sourced from cows born and bred in Omaha, Nebraska.
A beef based drink with no alcohol or carbonation. It’s fortified with glucosamine, which is great for joints. It’s can be served as a treat or as a topper on dry dog food. You can even serve it over crushed ice on a hot day.
Puppy Cake Puptato Chips
A healthy, all natural alternative to potato chips. Made from dried sweet potatoes, they are low in fat and high in vitamins.
Whole Life Freeze Dried Protein
Freeze dried, single sourced protein with no fillers. Made from high quality meet from the USA.
Dale Edgar Calm K9 Wafers
Hailing from Portland, Oregon these wafers contain omega-3, Vitamin B and chamomile to help sooth and relax frightened dogs, or those suffering from anxiety. Great for fireworks and thunderstorms.
My dog went crazy when I opened this box. He must have known it was all for him.
He loves the Puppy Cake Puptato Chips and the Whole Life Freeze Dried Protein snacks. He would eat both bags if I let him. He can’t get enough of them.
We haven’t had the opportunity to try the Dale Edgar Calm K9 Wafer yet. We plan on giving them to him on the Fourth of July. If they work we’ll give them to him whenever a thunderstorm rolls in or the local ballpark has fireworks.
I’m going to give our neighbor (a Rottweiler puppy who is already 70 pounds!) the real bone. As much as my dog wants it I know he’ll get very protective of it and literally viciously attack the cats if they go near it. I don’t want to take any chances.
As for the Bowser Beer, we haven’t tried it yet.
Bark Box is a fun idea. I would love to subscribe to something like this for Espn. I wish they had Meow Boxes too so I could subscribe for my cats too.
