BarkBox: Dog Treat & Toy Subscription
What Is BarkBox?
BarkBox is a subscription service which enables dog owners to treat their pets to new toys and treats every month. It is designed with the busy, modern lifestyle in mind, making it suitable for those who may not find time easily to go out shopping for their dogs.
Dog treats and toys can help enhance training sessions and promote your pet’s overall wellbeing. Receiving new products on a regular basis helps to easily maintain clean and fresh toys, while keeping your dog happy and excited each month.
Each month a new theme will guide the types of treats and toys you and your dog receive. Previous BarkBox themes have included Scooby-Doo, Shakespeare, Thanksgiving, and cinema. The bright boxes will add a splash of color to your dog’s home and ensure there is always something new to play with!
What is the cost of BarkBox?
Pet owners can subscribe to BarkBox from $22 per month, receiving goodies with a value of more than $40. The option to double your box is available, giving your dog even more treats.
The price you pay depends on how long you choose to subscribe for. The 12-month subscription will cost the lowest at $22, rising to $25 per month for a 6-month subscription, and $35 per month for a rolling monthly subscription. You can choose to add an extra premium toy to your dog’s box for an additional fee of $9 per month.
Customers can choose to pay for the subscription by PayPal or credit card. When the subscription is up for renewal, this will happen automatically unless it is cancelled in advance.
The cost of shipping is free within the 48 contiguous states of the US.
Finding a subscription for your dog
To find the right subscription for your dog, BarkBox has an easy form which customers can complete with details about their pet. This includes your dog’s name (optional), sex (optional), size, breed (optional), birthday (optional), and whether s/he has any allergies.
You can then select the length of subscription you want (12 months, 6 months, or one month) and make the payment.
BarkBox also provides an option to buy one or more boxes as gifts for a dog you know. BarkBox subscriptions can be given as last-minute presents or one-off surprise treats and will be sent directly to the dog and their owner. To complete an order for gifts, the only detail required for the dog is its size, where you can choose between Small and Cute, Just Right, or Big and Bold.
You can buy one month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months of BarkBoxes, with savings available the longer you subscribe. For $19, you can double the first box.
