Overall, there were a couple of surprises from this box. I absolutely love human-grade treats and organic products/toys. That is a huge plus! I do notice more of a variety in where the products are made. I am mostly pro-US made only food, treats, toys, and supplements however I do go closely follow product reviews- whether it be Amazon or other trusted websites. After my research, I do find it safe to use the Canada- and China- made products provided in this box. Plus, BarkBox is a company that I have come to trust over time with high-quality products. That being said, I am excited about this new box and ready to dive in. 


BarkBox recently announced that the discount has increased from $5 off to 10%! This means a bigger savings for all my readers. Please let me know if you use my code so I can feature you on my website and social media!

  5. Hi! I've been reading your web site for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Lubbock Tx!
    Just wanted to mention keep up the good work!

  6. Excellent way of explaining, and good piece of writing to take data about my presentation subject, which i am going to deliver in school.

  9. You are so cool! I don't believe I've read through something like
    this before. So wonderful to find someone with some original thoughts on this subject.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is something that is required on the web, someone
    with a bit of originality!

  10. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so
    much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  11. Good article! We will be linking to this particularly great content on our
    website. Keep up the great writing.

  12. Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?
    I'm completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal every day.
    I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or
    tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    is in fact nice and the users are genuinely sharing nice thoughts.
