Surprise Your Dog With #BarkBoxGifts

I have written this post on behalf of BlogPaws Pet Blogger Network for BarkBox. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about BarkBox, but Pawsitively Pets only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.

I don't know about you, but I love surprises! I'd much rather receive a physical gift instead of a gift card for special occasions. And who's to say that dogs don't love surprises too? Especially if the surprise is a box of treats and toys. No dog is going to turn that down!

Earlier this month, Shiner received her very first BarkBox and she was very excited about it. I was too. Both of us have always wanted to try BarkBox. If you don't know what BarkBox is, it's a monthly subscription box for dogs that is filled with 4-6 toys, hygiene products, and/or treats for dogs.

More About BarkBox - A Monthly Subscription Box for Dogs

BarkBox Monthly Subscription Box for Dogs

BarkBox obviously cares about what kind of dog treats go into their boxes. All dog treats that go into a BarkBox are sourced in the USA and Canada and all chews are sourced in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. You won't find any rawhide products in a BarkBox, or anything else that is processed with formaldehyde. The people over at BarkBox also take into consideration the ingredients that go into the treats that are sent out. They don't include anything they wouldn't give to their own dogs.

Besides taking great care in what they put in their monthly dog boxes, BarkBox also gives back. 10% of all proceeds from their sales goes to dog shelters or other rescue initiatives. I'm always glad to see a charitable company.

What We Got In Our BarkBox

Shiner seemed pretty excited about her box. She poked around at it for a few minutes before I ever got the chance to open it up. Once open, I tried to set it up nicely in front of the Christmas tree to take some photos. That didn't really work out well because she took one sniff of her new toy and was outta there!

She really loves this thing. It's a Slap Happy made by PetSafe.

Also included in our BarkBox were 3 bags of very tasty dog treats. I haven't opened them all up yet, because I want to use one up first before I open a new one. The treats we got were Truffle Mac & Cheese by Bocce's Bakery, Duck YumZies by Nootie, and Twistix Vanilla Mint chew by N-Bone.

BarkBox Dog Treats

I decided to let Shiner try the Twistix dog treats first. I have never heard of or seen these dog treats before so I thought we'd give them a try. They are a hit with Shiner. They are much more crunchy and chewy than I would have expected, which is a good thing. They also smell fantastic - like vanilla and mint!

Now that I've got all these bags of treats, Shiner's been following me around the kitchen staring at her treat counter... I think she's trying to tell me something!
