Bell and Caro love BarkBox

This post is sponsored by BarkBox.

Bella and Caroline go CRAZY whenever we get packages on the doorstep. By “go crazy.” I mean that Bella barks ferociously (she likes to pretend she’s a big dog) while bodyslamming against the door, and Caro wakes up from her slumber and ventures into the living room to see what all the fuss is about. They’re always excited when the mail comes, but they were even more excited to find that one particular delivery was just for them!! I knew it would be a fun little surprise when BarkBox offered to send them some goodies.

Here’s what they received in their outer space-themed packages:

Bark Made Shuttle: a soft shuttle-shaped toy. 

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Ringo: a minty sphere, that you can put small treats into. 

Bixbi Peanut Butter Pocket Trainers: grain-free treats that the dogs LOVED.

Etta Says Crunchy Duck and Sweet Potato Bar: a chewy treat!

BarkMade Space Rover Bandana: for when they’re feeling extra fancy.

Bella’s favorite: the shuttle toy. She loves to chase it down the hall.

Caro’s favorite: the peanut butter treats. I love watching her tail wag when I take out the bag.

Here’s how BarkBox works:

-You receive a monthly box of treats, toys and goodies for your pup (or pups!)

-Each box contains full-sized items, including new toys and natural treats

-The edible products are clean, which is important to me. They don’t contain formaldehyde and are minimally processed. When possible, they’re certified organic and do not contain wheat, gluten, soy, corn, fillers, or glycerin. If your dog has allergies to beef, chicken, turkey, wheat, soy, gluten or corn, you can email support to get your pup on an allergy list to receive a special box

-The toys, hygiene and grooming products are sourced in the US

-Cost starts at $18/month and is tailored to your dog’s size

-In their online store, you can purchase products from past boxes, or re-order items that your pup particularly loved. (I also found the prices in the online store to be very reasonable.)

It was such a fun treat for the dogs, and they’re still enjoying all of the goodies. BarkBox definitely converted us to subscribers, especially since we don’t make it to the pet store as often as we used to. (I pick up their dog food at the vet’s office down the street.)

BarkBox kindly offered an awesome deal to reader friends who want to make their pup’s day: one free month on any BarkBox subscription when you sign up! (For example, if you sign up for 3 months, you’ll get 4 months.) Just use the code FITNESSISTA here!

Bella and Caro say “thank you” again for the fun treats! 

What’s your pet’s favorite toy or treat?

Hope you have a wonderful morning! See ya later today on the Family page.

    Ha! I always love puppy pictures — thanks for sharing! And my dog’s favorite toy right now is his “red dragon”. He’s removed all the stuffing (because he “destroys”, he doesn’t “play”), so it’s really “red fabric” now, but it’s his fave!

    OMG the pic of Bella licking her chops! Hilarious!

    • Fitnessista on August 13, 2015 at 3:03 pm

      she is a nut

  7. Crystal on August 13, 2015 at 9:21 am

    Omg your dogs are so freaking adorable!

    I think I might finally have to check this out for my pups. They also get excited when the UPS guy comes to the front door (I don’t think he feels the same way though my big dogs have VERY big barks).

      it would be a fun little surprise for them! it was a blast to open the package and show them what they got haha

    Awww so cute! I always wondered what was inside of a BarkBox – I bet they love it!
    My dog loves anything with a squeaker in it. He immediately takes the squeaker out and just plays with that – forget the toy! So funny.

    • Fitnessista on August 13, 2015 at 3:02 pm

      haha that is awesome. bella just squeaks the squeaker over and over

    Caro is so cute! My cousin breeds and trains cavaliers so I grew up being surrounded by them when I’d spend weeks at their house in the summer. Such a sweet breed!
