BarkBox is a subscription-based business that charges a monthly fee to subscribers. In return for that fee, subscribers receive a box of products for their dog based on their dog’s size and options selected when the subscription plan is purchased.
For as long as a subscription is active, the subscriber receives their monthly box of goodies. The catch? The contents of the box are a complete mystery until the box arrives!
How BarkBox Stands Out From the Competition
- They ONLY use treats sourced from the USA and Canada, and chews sourced from the USA, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
- Their treat and chew products are ALWAYS wheat, corn, and soy free!
- They also offer an allergy friendly box that is beef, chicken, and turkey free, owners just need to contact them through their website to request this option!
- Their toys come in a range of durability levels for different types of chewers.
- Their toys aren’t just cheap plush toys, they are also interactive toys and heavy duty toys.
- They offer items from their boxes for purchase via their BarkShop website.
- They guarantee that dogs will love every item in their boxes or they will replace the item at no charge.
- They offer subscribers FREE boxes for every subscriber they refer through their link.
- They almost always have at least one coupon for new subscribers to save on their subscription.
The Not So Great About BarkBox
- They carry products like the Benebone (see Nylabone in this post) in their online store and some of their treat toys have just one hole rather than two (see this post for why this isn’t a good thing!)
