October 2013 BarkBox Review (*Spoiler Alert!*)

I won a 6-month-subscription from a BarkBox & Wrapp instagram contest! Check out my giveaway with BarkBox (ending in just a few hours!) by clicking -->here.

Here is my Ruckus Report of this Spooky BarkBox:

1) Fruitables Share Pack:
Current Price: $5.99

If you would like 2 of these bags, they cost $9.99 on the BarkBox website. I'm wondering if this is a BarkBox exclusive since I couldn't find it anywhere else.

I will do tricks for these treats!

2) Bumi West Paw
Current Price $9.99

This is pretty durable and made from 100% recyclable material. They have a nice replacement deal too!

Bumi is so durable that if your dog can damage it, they will give you a one-time free replacement or refund

3) Fetch & Glow Jr Ball
Current Price $.8.95

Who says you can't play fetch in the dark?

Glows-in-the-Dark For Day & Night Play

4) Baker's Best Autumn Harvest Goat Liver Recipe Dog Treats
Current Price $7.99

This product I am hesitant about. It is made in Canada and comes from the Feelgood Treat Company. I couldn't find how to purchase this item anywhere online nor the estimated the cost based on their other dog treats. Goat liver sounds good but when it's mysterious and not from a well-known company, it gives my sapiens a little anxiety.

5) Etta Says Crunchy Rabbit Chew
Current Price: $0.85
This is chew stick also came in my September Box: instead of rabbit, I had duck last time. The price is a bulk estimation.


Overall, I'm not thoroughly impressed with this box due to the low value compared to the previous boxes. Although, keep in mind that one of the product, I wasn't able to find the price online and the other one was estimated from a bulk value sale. $19 USD per month will get you a box like this for 6-month subscription. Still money saved!

You can see what's my favorite item...

  1. Great haul!
    Love the gif!

  2. I appreciate your honesty, and I like how your people look into everything thoroughly. It does seem like a great value overall. My dogs love their bumis too! They also have other West Paw toys that they enjoy.

    1. What other West Paw toys do you have Jan? Thanks for the positive feedback! I pride myself in being honest in every review and I hope my readers see that too!

  3. WOW interesting Halloween dog treats. I would love that glow ball. Happy Black n White Sunday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. Good review. What are you going to do with the goat treats?

    1. Good question Tenacious Terrier. I'm holding onto it for now until I can find out more info about it.

  5. Wow, what a great prize you won! Lucky you.

  6. Wow what great prizes, lucky you.

  7. BarkBox is awesome, but the smile on Ruckus' face says it all. :)

  8. Hi there! Erin from BarkBox here - thanks for taking the time to review October's box! I would love to tell you more about Baker's Best and discuss the treats with you, as they're a product I've been incredibly excited about getting into the paws and jaws of our pup-scribers. Feel free to shoot me a note with any questions! erin at barkbox dot com :)

    1. Thanks for visiting Erin! I appreciate you making the effort to visit my BarkBox posts! Means that you care very much about the product you are selling.

  9. My problem with bark box would be getting things that are not something I would feed my dog so I understand your hesitance to feed a treat you can't research. Otherwise it looks like a good haul!

    1. That's true 2browndawgs. I think if your dogs are picky, barkbox may not be the best deal. If you are adventurous, then this would be a big hit.

  10. My fav product and the one my pups would love is the bumi west paw!

  11. I got that box too, but my dog received other toys! Lila would love the Bumi West Paw or the Fetch & Glow Jr Ball!

  12. My girl would love the Etta Says Crunchy Rabbit Chew. She loves those sticks and won't do anything until they're all gone. She's very food motivated :)

  13. Diva would LOVE the Fetch & Glow Jr Ball

  14. Shiloh would love the Bumi toy- we see a lot of dogs with this as their reward after an agility run, and they seem to love it!
